Hot! Hot! Hot!

I live in DC, where it's over 100 today. So it figures I'd pick this morning to end a three-week hiatus from riding. Knocked out a bit more than 22 miles with some friends. But despite drinking a ton, I overheated more than once and we had to cut the ride short. Then again, that's 22 miles more than I had ridden when I woke up this morning, so I've got to consider the day a success.

Starting Out . . .

This is yet another blog about a cyclist who doesn't ride enough, and hopes that a good dose of public humiliation (and maybe some support), will help me get on my bike more. That in turn should let me ride a century this October, and hopefully lose some weight. By my count there are only a few million similar blogs. Whether this one will be worth reading your time, I don't know. I suppose it depends a lot on whether I blather on only about riding, or whether I come up with other stuff worth reading. We'll see . . .

Oh -- weight this morning was 205, which is down 10 lbs from January 1. Got a lot to go, though.
