An endurance blog in tumblr’s Spotlight? When did this happen?

Last of my Finals exams done, I change into shorts and tsinelas to go for an hour meandering ride around the city on the ‘dale.

"Escape" lately has been quick morning runs and short rides and it feels as if it has been a long time since a real long ride.  I’ve forgotten the last time I looked down on my Edge and saw elevation gain measured in thousands.

If I pass all of my exams, this time next month I’ll be a lab intern and then “escape” might be a walk to cafe for a quick cup.

Cebu, maybe?Hope.

"that rider"

I was second in a small group when a tricycle in front of us slowed down.  I took my right hand off the hoods to signal “danger right” when a dog, who may have been spooked by the tricycle, jumped out into the street and in front of the lead guy.  A split second later, my front wheel was overlapping his rear, spokes hitting his dropout with with loud TWANGs and tires rubbing.

I don’t remember what I did but I kept the bike upright.  A rider who saw it said I managed to clip out.  I don’t remember that either.

A flurry of apologies and few km’s up the road later, I noticed nobody would take my rear wheel.

…guess I’m “that guy” now, eh?
