century riders club

so, always wanted to do a 100 a month for a full year. recently, i saw that hurl had something brewing on that front and it got my interests up for sure. yesterday i placed myself on the way to that goal by scoring the rare southeast nebraska january hundy. gravel of course. lincoln, princeton, cortland, wilber, malcom, lincoln. picturing feb, nov and dec as being the tough months as far time and weather cooperating enough for a full day on the bike. thanks to carl being along.

I gotta live my life.

I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s see……A month ago, my bike and I decided to have a duel. Long story short, the bike won. And I still will continue to love bikes even though my Mom has suggested no more. Nice try Mom, but I gotta live my life.

As a result of the bike winning, my consolation prize is a Pilon Fracture. Basically, I broke both the tibia and fibula at the ankle in a few places. My winnings in the prize bag include: no compound fracture, an unexpected departure to DC for surgery, installation of a ‘hardware store’ – two plates and 14 screws in the leg, riding a motorized scooter around the grocery store complete with a horn (dreams do come true), cast color customization, using dishwashing soap in the dishwasher only to find the origin of foam parties, and other various items that can only be disclosed if you are a consolation prize winner.

See you later.
