Potholes

Tomorrow morning the plan was to do my first ride in of over 100 miles in over 20 years. I was going to participate in the Oostburg Christian School Unity Ride. But a couple of potholes entered the arena this week and forced me to change that plan. First, there is the weather, which looks to be very wet and cold. A high of 45 degrees and 70% chance of rain doesn't sound like an enjoyable way to spend 6 hours on a bike, especially with a headcold about to reach it's peak. Yeah, a headcold - the second pothole in the road.

I was really hoping for this ride to happen, thinking it would be a great way to prepare for next Wednesday's 156-mile, one-day Bone Ride, led by local cycling legend, Tom Schuler. But unless some miraculous healing comes my way over the next couple days, the Bone Ride will have to wait another year for me to practice my wheel-sucking skills.

So far it's been a cool, wet spring in Wisconsin, and not good for my training.
