I STILL like my bike...

But I really need to rethink my riding group. My neighbor - fine; but when E and K joined in it turned into a 2 hour blab session, and NOT the kind of ride I would have liked. I don't want to come off as too serious - I know that is just not the case, but when you all have kids and an opportunity to be without them for a few hours in the nice fresh fall air, why would you spend those precious moments complaining about how far your 8 yo's soccer game is to drive to, and why Mrs. Stillman is so stern with her 1st graders... I want to attack the up hills and spin right on down hill as fast as I can. I don't want to converse about who is and who is not volunteering for the PTA fundraiser... I don't care which pre-school is cheaper or better or more inclusive of parents. IWANTTO RIDEMYBIKE! I know I could just go by myself - and therein lies the problem. Why can't I? Some bizarre fear... I know the 20 mile route now and should be able to do it with out feeling so freaky...

Then go get on your bike and RIDE!! Or identify the fear and attack that! Fear of flats? Practice changing! Fear of other breakdowns? Take a bike workshop! You can do it!
