Slacking

Didn't ride tonight. Had to clean the house, and then I had to go drink a few beers with the teammates. Not fake "drink the beer but really I trained all night" but actually I drank some beers. It was a good time. I hope to make up the lost riding time on Sunday.

My pal Dan just got a new Niner. I plan to ride it at the earliest opportunity. He says it is schweet like honey. I am still not sold on the whole 29er thing. They seem slow up hill, and slow to get up to speed in general. I guess this Niner is fine like wine. We'll see...

A bunch of new parts from White Industries arrived the other day. I was showing some of them off at the bar tonight. Many people were envious. All the parts made it home again, but not because some people didn't try to swipe them. You know who you are, Dan... :)

Patrick,
At least half the reason that I ride long miles is so that I can keep drinking beer! I get to drink a few pints with the mates, and not balloon up to typical american proportions. It's the best of both worlds.

Also, being sponsored by a brewery, I kind of have an obligation to drink a certain amount of beer... :)

Our shop team used to be sponsored by a brewery..those were the good ole days...this whole no beer/booze thing(for me) is an experiment...
