sprockets, sockets, grommets & gaskets
Coworkers walk into my office, say "time for a bike ride." I'm all IT IS COLD OUT THERE. They say "cowboy up." I'm wearing: socks, warm socks, shoes, shorts, insulated tights, shirt, fleece pullover, cap, helmet, earmuffs, cold-weather gloves. We're riding west by Haystack Mountain and this woman is jogging towards us.|
She's wearing a bikini.
And matching purple gloves.
She was a redhead, but even so: some people are far tougher than I am.
We pushed pretty hard the whole ride. When we went out yesterday a coworker only had his mountain bike and just about threw up trying to stay with us, and today he was still thrashed from that so I had to keep dropping back a bit to get him in behind me and catch up with everyone else.
Lungs managed fine even though we were close to freezing.
