This is an obligatory post about making plans with a riding buddy to force yourself up in the morning when the alcohol you had last night is trying it’s best to keep you in bed.
This is an obligatory post that brings up tire pressure. Questioning it. Testing it. Just letting the damn stuff out of the tire and pressing your palm against it until you can almost hit that rim. There. That’ll do.

This is an obligatory post about riding in that first big snow in Minnesota. Feeling it out again. Testing your limits again. Falling again. Watching as your bicycle becomes a collector of the heavy, wet flakes.
This is an obligatory post about that place with the really great breakfast burrito that you forgot about. And then found again. And then ate again. You know, that one. The really good one.
