Vision Climb 29

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!
