Take Your Bike to Work Day

Bike in the Office
If It Were Any Closer, It Would Be In My Lap

It's kind of like Take Your Daughter to Work Day, except with a bike.

With my normal commuter in the shop, I rode the Pilot in today. Since I didn't have a lock with me (leaving it behind was a total accident - sure), I brought it down with me and parked it next to my desk - rather than leaving it outside.

On the way home, I could see the tail end of the Crew riding out to the river to practice. It only took me about a half a mile to catch up. As the last guy dismounted to walk the hill on Newman, I sailed up while out of the saddle. Another victory over an inexperienced rider on a discount store bike!

Miles Ridden: 7.0

You'd have still wasted him if you traded bikes. It's not the bike's fault.

On a related note, there's a lady I used to see once in a while who would use only the sidewalk, and would walk up EVERY incline, then hop on and coast down every hill, maybe pedaling a bit to keep it moving once the ground got level again. Someone needs to get her a velocipede.
