Getting back on the wagon

I went for a bike ride today. I haven’t been riding a whole lot lately, and my general fitness level has deteriorated significantly. I didn’t make it as far as I was planning to.I was coming over this hill and was passed by another cyclist. This guy had fenders and panniers on. How embarrassing.

The fires of Isengard will spread, and the forests of Tuckborough and Buckland will burn.

I followed a side street that had a chain across it to keep people out. I decided to investigate. I found an oil pipeline!

You know what we don’t have enough of around here? Well I’ll tell you what. We don’t have enough butt-fucking-ugly buildings around here. Let’s build some more.

There won’t be a Shire, Pippin.

I set the Trek back up for commuting duty. I need to ride more regularly. I ordered a pair of non-clipless pedals today. I think one of the reasons I never ride the Trek is because I don’t like to screw around looking for the special shoes I need to ride it.

Barring any unfortunate alarm clock malfunctions tommorow morning, I’m going to get back on the bicycle commutung bandwagon as often as I can. I’ve been a real slacker lately.
