you guys are here in ten years
first ride for me since three heart vessel stents were crammed into me on July 21. been too hot and humid for the heart patient to pedal until this morning.
10 miles at an average of 6.6 MPH was what I could muster.
Well, as Curly would say, "If at first you don't succeed, keep on suckin' 'til you do succeed."
I love to ride!
I make a light canvas pouch in colors to match the bent. They're lined with 3/16" insulation foam and have a bubble wrap bag that the hydration pack fits into. The insulation foam hasn't been installed on the bent in this image.
When the bag is in the pouch and filled, the pouch is smooth. The hose runs down the underside of the seat to the front hook & loop seat pad strap. It's out of the way and easy to access. The hydration pack is accessed through a pair of zippers on the top for easy filling.
trikes gettin' ready to roll!
I was strung out on Bikes
And Upright was my thing
I dug Trek, I dug Brooks
Any traditional thing
But I ran into a friend
Who told me there was so much more
Find the void that you missed
There is plenty to explore
Trikes getting ready to roll
Trikes getting ready to roll
if I had a reporting beat I'd be talking to those folks.
Riding my folder yesterday on a glorious summer day, I am ascending the hill that goes right by the hospital that fixes my ticker when suddenly it feels like someone is giving my left nipple a mild shock. I stop at the top of the hill and an eerie pain hits me.
It's like a childhood bully just flicked your heart like he did your ear years ago: silent, stinging, smug.
I sit in the shade and put a nitro under my tongue and the pain begins to dissolve. I call my heart guy and his assistant tells me to go to the ER immediately. I tell him I'm about a minute's walk from the place right now.
I walk in with my bike (no lock) and the guard puts it safely behind the desk. The triage nurse takes me in and gets my vitals.
"I'm a rider too, " she says, "I commute to work year round." The Zombie Raccoons are discussed as is her leisure time pursuit of track riding at the Velodrome as a member of the All City women's team. I don't tell her I've instantly fallen in love with her even while worried I'm about to plotz - such is her tremendous charm and vitality.
They check me in. EKG me. Blood test me. I'm okay. No heart event has occurred. Likely an undigested bit of tofu or some such.
I am released. I go out the ER door and pedal the three miles home.
"Is that thing registered?"
