On the "lighter side" of my ride...


As a followup to my previous post regarding "potholes" and "pinheads"...there was a comical side to what happened on my ride that didn't dawn on me until I was actaully done.

About 12 miles in I pulled into the "soccer facility" off of Anderson Ridge road so I could grab a quick snack. For people who do not know, this facility is a YOUTH soccer facility and contains - what I would guess - to be 10 fields. On this particular night there are several games going on and parents every where.

Anyways, as I stood there eating my bar and looking over the field of 8 to 9 year olds playing soccer...it dawned on me what I must have looked like.

Standing there - staring at these kids - with my cycling shorts (hiding no secrets) and my cycling jersey unzipped. No wonder why the parents were staring at me.

Freak alert. Too funny!! Keep your jersey zipped and you will be fine.

You probably felt about as cool as I do when I have to adjust my junk at a stop light to continue riding my tri bike. It's haaawwwwwt (in my best Paris Hilton voice).
