why?

1 min read

I'm surprised but glad.  Unless one is doing something like mountain biking, bike helmets don't protect.  They aren't even designed to protect against the most common form of bike injury.  I don't wear one.

Bike Ride -- Feb. 9, 2009

Well, I went on my first bike ride of 2009 today.  Wow.  It was horrible.  Here are the stats (sorry...my computer only does metric):

Dist: 23.45 km
Ride Time: 1 h 3 min 38 sec
Avg. Speed: 22.3 kmph
Feb. Dist: 23.45 km
Total Dist: 298 km
Total Time: 17 hr 13 min

Doing some more math, I barely averaged 13 mph.  ARG! I know, I haven't ridden since Septemberish and have eaten poorly (I've gained 10 kg from my low after we arrived).  My goal is to get back in shape (where I was 1.5 years ago) and loose some weight (I'd like to weigh between 90 and 95 kg).

More on this post where I talk about Lance returning to cycling.

Can Lance be stopped?
Lance is taking a chance.
His old boss wants him back.

Oh, and by the way, Landis is making a return too.
