A moment in time

My husband wants spiky pedals like mine and I suggested last night that if it wasn't raining this morning, I would ride to work and meet him at the Ashburn Spokes, Etc., and then we could drive home together. We need to put the bike rack on the back of the truck for tomorrow's Bike Me DC ride in Arlington Alexandria anyway, so it might as well go on when he gets home from work this afternoon.

So. This morning, we discovered that it was raining. I glumly decided to give riding a pass. Scott chided me for losing "hardcore points". I said that I was worried about wiping out on the steep downhill coming off the Rte 28 bridge.

"Bridge, nothing!" he replied. "If I were you, I'd be worried about making it out of the front yard."

I might start speaking to him again next month. And, for what it's worth, I did NOT wipe out on either the bridge NOR in the front yard when I biked in AFTER the rainstorm.

  1. I wish I was "hardcore," but I don't think you've lost any of your points (for what it's worth). I am such a wimp about potential for falls that if I know there will likely be ice, I skip the ride. I have a difficult enough time walking on ice without killing myself - I definitely don't need to add wheels to the equation. Glad to hear you didn't wipe out!
