First Off

Got my first climb of the season in today; Geiger went by in 37 flat. Not bad for an out of shape hack.

This, however, is not a recommended way to end a ride:

Helmet's in bits. Bike will probably be OK. Sunglasses done, shorts done, jersey done, gloves done. Wheels dropped into a gap in the asphalt and grabbed tight, then front flat, then wheels released with bike very out of shape. Happened pretty fast. 20 minutes beforehand, I was descending Geiger, so I'll take the chill neighborhood crash over some sort of 45mph-slide-into-guardrail-post scenario.

Still oozing a bit.
