thanks MG...

for buying the first round, as the self confessed weakest link, I just did not want that to be me, it was the only little victory I was looking for, so I owe you one. :D

ran into Mg at the wrench while there for a quick gear adjustment. Thinking about some further commuter modification that I will have to talk over with the guys. Small wheel change maybe. And then saw Cornbread on the rock island. I was just so happy I recognized him. In case you ever thought I was being stuck up and ignoring you, while that is not completely outside the realm of reason, it is way more likely I just do not realize I know you. I sort of need people to be where I expect them to be to recognize them, it is odd, but then when I recognize them and they are not where I expected them to be, ok I know bike trail is a stretch on that one, I am just always so pleased with my recognition abilities even though really I do not have any of those.

yep I felt pretty powerful riding along last night IN THE TORRENTIAL RAIN WOO HOO it was soooo awesome. Today I was completely prepared even have a second pair of socks because I thought last night when I got home that would have been the only yucky thing to put back on if they were still wet.

I don't think you're stuck up. I have the same problem. Since I'm 6' 5", I get recognized way before I can recognize someone else. So I usually feel like a complete arss after someone says hi and I have no idea who it was.

Good first week in the challenge. Keep it up.

yeah, i wouldn't consider you the weakest link at all... so i guess you're welcome. i proved that if there's a 'weakest link', i'm it.

but as i see it, we're all in this together. it's not about being stronger or weaker than eachother. it's about our collective power as dedicated two-wheel commuters.

i'm awfully thankful to cornbread for starting the challenge. it's what i needed to step away from my car on a day-to-day basis.

cheers,
mg

YOu guys are all too nice, I did not mean it in the weakest link sort of way, oh well I can probably not exactly explain it. I was the only girl in a big family of boys, so these kinds of games where I am the only girl are really familiar to me. As far as cornbread starting this I too am really grateful. I did not even realize that before I maybe had just a hare of hesitance every time I commuted by bike, I am not sure what it was about, other than just not strong enough really to get it done, but now two weeks in, it is routine. I am glad to have taken the leap the rolling safety cages.
