Then...and Now


Then...when I started biking I thought I was so smooth when I could pull my water bottle out of its cage, take a drink, and replace it all without falling over.

Now... I think I'm so smooth when I can pull my cell phone out of my Bento Box, check my voicemail, and return it without breaking my aero position or losing 90 rpms.

I guess I've learned something in 20 years of biking after all...

OK, I am not even comfortable doing the water bottle yet.

You are my hero!

Have you experienced the excitement of trying to stay balanced and clipped in at a stop light, only to fall over still clipped into the pedals?
I've gotten pretty good at it over the years but it seems like at the begining of every season I end up pulling off the fall one more time!

Nope, I always clip out at stoplights. Only one of many reasons I love my SPDs...
