I see yellow

School is in, Yellow buses are out. Be careful out there. I almost got hit by a school bus 2 miles from my house yesterday because she couldn't wait 10 second for a car to pass on her left and cut me off that i almost had to go into a ditch to avoid being hit. I caught up to her at the light and just glared at her. You know they know what they did when they don't look at you at all while you are glaring at them. As soon as the light switches they get brave and yell at you.
There's kids that ride to school, I wonder if she would do that to them to.

Darn AM bike riders

Summer hrs are over at work that means back to normal working hrs. I don't have to get up at 4am to commute to work, wohoooooo one more hr of sleep. So now I get up at 5am, big freaking deal, right?
 My commute is 32 miles one way through some of the hilliest parts in the MetroParks, Strongsville to Solon. Everytime I commute I tell myself as I'm leaving the house, "take it easy" no need to rush just spin your way there and get your workout done in the afternoon. Every once in a while as soon as I hit the park I see blinking lights ahead and like a fool, I'm chasing. Does it happens to you?
I'm carrying a 10 pound backpack and I'm chasing a stupid blinking light and I don't slow down until the catch is made. Sometimes as I make the catch I see another one ahead and like a double fool I keep going aiming for that one. It happened today in the Bedford reservation, I stopped to take a nature break and two guys went buy. So I get on the bike and I'm chasing, I need to stop this and just enjoy the ride in the morning. Then again, is just fun chasing, catching, passing, hurting and then hurting some more on my way home in the afternoon. I'm just glad all the lights I chase are from slow moving riders and the little speed I can do is enough. I'm just a hair faster that slow.
Don't forget MANATOC this weekend.

long break

It's been a long time since my last post. I haven't had the desire to blog or post anything so I took a break.
I'll be posting some pics of what with been doing at the Boys Scouts camp for the Manatoc Weekend.
Hope you can make it to ride and demo some bikes from different manufacturers and just to have fun riding the trails. This is open only this time of the year for this weekend only.
Ride Saturday or race the cyclocross race. MTB race on Sunday.
