In Da Club: A Newbie Gets the Nod

So I knew there was a club.  I just didn’t think that I was a member.  Not yet.  Not when I just figured out that you need to unscrew the top of the valve to put air in the tires.  Or that you don’t wear underwear with your riding shorts (never should have listened to my wife).

But I guess I am in, because now when I ride with all my A Road Bike 4U gear on, guys nod at me.

They never did that before.

It must have been because I was riding a 12 year old Trek mountain bike with slicks and platform pedals. My weekend warrior attire consisted of running shoes, basketball shorts and a t-shirt.

Huffing and puffing…
