Bike to the Beartooths Jersey

No ride today. Even though it was a beautiful day today, we couldn't get our acts together to do anything. Of course, for the same reason (or two reasons) we never get to do anything we plan on doing. I won't mention their names.

I did get a lot of yard work done today like mowing the lawn and cleaning up the garden. I also worked on my bike a bit, replacing a chain and the brake pads. Somehow I messed up the brakes so bad that I can't ride it until I fix it. I have a friend who said he'd take a look and help me out with it. The chain seems to be good so far but I still have a shifting problem to work on. I wish I knew what I was doing when it comes to bike repair. As bad as I can screw up a car, I thought that bikes would be much simpler but in a way, they are even harder. I'd rather change brake pads on a car than a bike.

Anyway, I thought I'd post a picture of my new jersey from the MS ride. I really like it. Can't go wrong with orange. I wore it a few days ago and Sarah washed it today so it's still wet so I didn't feel like modeling it myself. However, last night Sarah and I were talking to an employee at the gym and he asked about my jersey. I was wearing one of the Cyprus jerseys that Ashley designed and he told me I looked like a shirt model. Weird!


Sarah said... man the shirt model. :) Lucky me!
