You all know you love the internet and chicken, I don't know why you won't admit it. That is between y'all and your makers though, and not my business.
Here is a picture of the famous Oak Mountain chicken, which is found in the Rock Garden section of the Oak Mountain State Park mountain bike trail in Pelham, AL. Tallahassee really needs to get its act together in the spontaneous art representation aspect of the local trail systems. All we have are signs that say, essentially, "This is a trail." Boring and short-sighted. More art in the woods please.
I pulled up at the Rock Garden for just a moment to acknowledge those friends and riders out there who are suffering, on and off the bike. Good thoughts manifested on sacred dirt carry more impact so things should start looking better for many of you. Don't thank me, I am happy to do it.
We stayed in a motel so close to the interstate that you had to cross two lanes to get to the breakfast buffet, and that's just the way we like it. Thin walls and a high bedbug count make us feel all warm and cozy.
I think it is time for me to face facts and figure out what to do about a new ride. It might be time to sell the Titus. If you have ridden a 29'er and then gone back to a 26" wheeled bike, please weigh in, but I suspect there are a tiny and insignificant number of people in that ridiculous club. Who doesn't like to go faster with less effort? That is all I am saying.
I'm going to blog my way out of this,
