I'm not cool enough to own an iPod

... so I use the "cool" headphone pass-through on my backpack for my NiteRider battery cord when I run it on my helmet.

I took the mountain bike to the bus today. I've been on a notable argumentative streak lately, stirring the pots of online philosophical deliberations that would normally fizzle into concession between my friends and I. The debate must go on! This gouged my slumber time, and I'm positively fatigued. I regret not having the moxie to make the full ride in this morning - the weather was splendid for mid-November.

I'm not sure what tickled my mountain bike nerve today, but I lived it up by eschewing traditional pathways at every possible venture. I rolled over raised medians, gallivanted on grassy hills, slid down small stairways and promenaded over parking lot islands with a smile on my face -- just because I can. If you haven't figured it out yet, that's usually what happens when I get on the Sorrento. I pine for the powdery snow, when I can genuinely flog this steed to its full potential. This is going to be an awesome winter for cycling. I can taste it.

I'm quaffing my third caffeinated beverage of the day, but I'm still a bit groggy. I need to hit the sack early tonight.

You definitely need to get to bed early tonight. Like two or two thirty.

With Gas going to $5 a gallon on the West Coast and the rest of the country to soon follow, we're all going to have greater opportunities for winter cycling. I'm betting the next tank of gas I buy will be my personal "tipping point" In fact my last tank was over $40!
