I may not be writing much, but I do seem to keep myself occupied with other endeavors — moving, vacationing, playing volleyball, riding my bike. And on the bike front, I finally, after a year of saying I should, purchased a real road bike, a Lemond Etape.
My mid-80s model Bianchi hybrid is awesome in many ways, but I’m ready to climb hills with a lighter and faster bike. The Bianchi will now get tricked out with some rear baskets or panniers for carrying groceries or my chair for the New Belgium outdoor movies.
I think the maiden voyage on the Lemond will be tomorrow. If I don’t kill myself with the clipless pedals first.
