Ouch.

Well, NiteRider still hasn't answered my email to them. I was inquiring about the feasibility of using their 15 watt bulb in my existing housing. I know it'll reduce run-time, but it already goes twice as long as I need it to. I also voiced my displeasure that it didn't even last 4 months. We'll see if I hear back later today.

Chris was out this morning and finally has some better lighting. I swear, my commutes are more like training rides if I try to keep up with him. By the time we got to the brewery, I was at 19.2 MPH, which is easily the fastest I've ever averaged on this trip. By the way: Ouch. No, I'm not injured. Yes, I'm sore.

I wasn't even focused on speed at first, I was just riding and keeping up. I usually leave my computer showing my current speed and the current time. Checking my average speed and seeing it at 18.9 shortly after leaving Kansas made me want to push harder. It didn't stay at 19.2 for long. As I began the climb into the downtown loop, I lost a little more than a mile per hour of my average speed, which is about normal.

I'm going to really hurt on my way home tonight. I just know it. Probably doing the L Bus again, or may be the A. I'm not sure yet. Miles don't matter this month.

I very seldom pour it on, so to speak in the morning. The return commute however can and many times is "hammertime". You gotta let loose every now and then.

You'll want to call NiteRider as they are notoriously bad at replying to emailed inquiries.

I had an issue with the rear light I had (it wouldn't turn off), called them and they were super helpful. Got it repaired and back within a week.
