Took a half day off work on Monday to ride with Sean from PA at
Avalon. Conditions were better than perfect. Low humidity, gentle
breeze, sunny, fast hardpack.
that jabs my a$$ with plastic sticking out was a real treat for me.
Tried a bunch of climbs on the seat that normally I'd ride outta the
saddle. Good fun. Belmont>RBB (right)>Ridge>Valley View alternate>Left on Ridge>Valley

Sean's got a bra on his bike in the roof rack. It takes a real man to drive a mini van and wear a bike bra;-)

Hey, I have a idea!
I'm going to make a new Woot.com profile and make my login name youare.
Then I'm going to stay up til midnight every night and try as hard as I can to be the first buyer every day.
Then when I finally am the first, it'll read "FIRST SUCKER: youare " in the Woot stats. Hahaha, get it???
It's so creative that some douche bag'll prolly take a screen shot of it and post it in his stupid blog.
I'm such a genius!!! Mwu-hahahaha....
PERFORMANCE that's the name of the game; I pump up my tires and I oil my chain.
and JK scored #30 or so TA around #50. Douche bag in front of me kept
sayin that he was saving a spot for his cousin. I was giving him a
hard time, loudly reporting, "Sure it's fine with me as long as it's
OK WITH EVERYBODY IN LINE BEHIND ME!!!" Cousin never showed up
anyway. Scored $20 for first 100 line + $15 for 3 old inner tube recycling.
Ordered a RED phone Terry Damselfly orig $135 230g saddle for EJ.
After coupons(props for the $10 EXTRA, JK), match online sale price,
and 15% off it came to $9;-)
While at the checkout counter my boss called me and told me to take
the day off because the power's out at work. SEG! After calling Jen from the parking lot to tell her the good news I
figured I'd go back in and see if the prize wheel line had shortened.
I gave it a spin and won the BIG PRIZE!!!!!! Came home with a free
295 lumen 3.8v LiOn Cygolite for Jenniflower!
I also stuffed the $1300 GT MTB giveaway drawing box with a herd of 6
Blandford entries (fingers crossed)!
Could this day get any better?
Fast HoCo full loop, counterclockwise style. With a few diversions
from the normal ridge way. iPod blaring! Trails recovered quickly
from the heavy Wednesday rains.
Ride started mellow and casual, by the end of the ride it was zippy.
Favorite Blue's Traveler ballad, "Mountains Win Again," made for the
fastest Nacho repeat I think ever pulled off. Bunny hopped every log
and skidded around every turn. Woo hoo!

****If this item is still on Craigslist then it's still available. Please save us both the time and don't email me asking if it's still available. I live in Elkridge off of Rte 1 and am available weekends and most weekday evenings after 5:30. So start off by emailing me and suggesting when you'd like to come by and see it. Thank you!
CASH ONLY, FACE TO FACE. I'm not interested in taking an extra $20 to hold in your favour so your handler can pick up after I cash your fake money order.
