thoughs of riding grow
weekend warriors blossom
road rash abundant

what time is the ride?
do you ride as fast as me?
thirteen miles per hour?

should i bring helmet?
and anything else along?
what does "spare tube" mean?

my phone rings off hook
suddenly int'rest is spiked
tour's on OLN

MS 150
is just two short months away
...but they are smart ones...

wait until tour time
send out mass post cards, e-mails
"better train! start now!"

suddenly calm groups
turn angry ugly sprintfests
for the first three miles

squirrels turn rabbits
into angered traffic, lost--
credibility

then, weekend armstrongs
surrender to lactic hell
and crawl back to car

for me i watch board
high tide of new screen names, this
tour fever, my friends

every year, same july
same questions, yes, same answers
J: keyboard silent

hey! what's the best bike?
how fast are thirteen mile rides?
cannondale or trek?

please, month end, i beg
bring with you tour fever's end
and group ride shake-downs

"how can i get fast?"
money cannot buy you in
ride long, fast is earned.

my legs are sore, yes
I ride slower than you, sport
for thousands more miles

single off-white merckx
chorus, open pro, red tape
seeking all-year mates

must have arm warmers
balaclava and wool socks
sunscreen, tan lines too

please send cassette pic
is your chain clean and well lubed?
seeking those like you
Thanks Yoda! (nm)shamelessgearwhore

amidst the frenzy, if one rider sticks, if one LBS survives, maybe it's worth it.

I personally, have taken the MB1 approach & just do long unsupported rides with a few friends.

Good Job BTW

return of Haiku
who released the hidden muse
from your Carradice?

Group ride. What to wear?
Fredly team kit? Old t-shirt?
Lycra or baggies?
Dood, who pooped in your Korn Phlakes?amflyer

You sound seriously bummed out and just a bit elitist...in other words, not like yourself. I'll send some positive energy your way.

Get Well,

It is summer, so you can start your rides at 5 am.
That should let natural selection do a little bit of
pre-selection :-).

Plus, at 5 am the air is still fresh, little traffic, no
overwhelming heat, and on your way back you run into
the 7 am riders on their way out!
