This morning I was pedaling nice and early as I rode to work at the Bear Valley Inn. It is always the best way to start a morning, especially when taking care of others is first on the list. On my way home I started getting into slow mode. Just as I caught myself yawning a guy on a road bike came up on my left and startled me. Since I had just barely crossed the line between Inverness Park and Inverness, I wasn’t about to let him fly by me that easily. So I caught his wheel. As the rule of drafting suggests, it actually made my ride easier. I had to hit my brakes a couple of times (obviously he wasn’t up for the challenge to drop me) and then I saw the Inverness sign. It was still a ways off but I knew I could drop him and make it home without him being able to catch my wheel. So I fired. I didn’t look back once until I was safely inside the front gate at my house. Apparently I schooled him because I waited a minute and still didn’t see him. Poor guy, getting schooled by a girl in cords and a fleece on a MTB. Oh well, at least I know I still have it even without the training hours.
So I let Bill go ride when I got home. At 3:30 it was my chance to hit the dirt. Feeling my feminine self, I took off up the hill in my My Alibi Reversible Skirt and a sweatshirt (over my prototype Tear Drop Cami of course). When I got to the top I decided to stick to the road today. When I broke off onto the singletrack, I decided at the last minute to take the more technical Redwood. I have to say this was the most technical ride I have ridden my Reversible Skirt on and it caused no problems. I mean really, there was no interference even in the most behind the seat sections. I was stoked to discover this. I still don’t think I will advertise this feature, but it is good to know for my understanding. I would have to say it technically out performs the Simple Skirt just because it is less likely to get caught up on the seat. Gotta love dropping knarl in a skirt!
