Cell Phone Ride

As soon as I got home from work I flew out the door with my bike in hand. It was a perfect day for riding, no wind and the temperature was just right. I didn’t want to go to the Hike and Bike trail so I decided to the Neighborhood Ride  that I got mapped out.

It started out good but my brother started to call me and since I use my cell as a bike computer, I didn’t want to stop and talk. I hit the Decline button and kept on riding. Problem solved, right? No. He just keeps on calling and I keep on getting pissed off. You would think that after two attempted calls that go straight to voice mail you would take a hint. Oh well. After five attempts he finally gives up and I can ride in peace.

Other than my brother pestering me on the cell, the ride went uneventful. It was a lot of stop and go with all the stop signs on one leg of the route, but I was able to pick up the pace at the half way mark. Overall, I put in over an hour on the saddle, 13 miles and my lights worked perfectly as I finished my ride in the dark.

Banner Picture

I really do not like the banner picture. As one friend commented, the bike is ugly and not my bike. This gives me an opportunity to experiment in photography and come up with a new pic that also includes my bike. I would need to make a green screen to take the pictures with. Hmm, sounds like a project is coming up.

Planned Posts

I have a list of topics that I want to write about, but they are just floating around in my head. What I need to do is jot them down on paper, but for some reason, I never seem to have time to do it. Well, I’m skipping the paper and posting it on here instead.  These are tropics that I would like to blog about in the coming weeks. Doing this will help me make stay organized and ensure that I cover all the initial topics. It will also be of benefit to the readers as they will know what to expect in the near future. Well, here is the list in no particular order:

  • Bike Mounts for iPhone
  • iMapMyRide app
  • REK app
  • Live Rider bike computer for iPhone
  • Cygolite Mity Cross 350 light system
  • Mirrors
  • Garmin Connect website
  • MapMyRide website

I think those are  the majority of topics that I plan to cover including my riding and anything else that comes up of interest to me. So, lets clip in and go for a ride.
