Friday night I went out with some people to Trolley Square and had an average time. I got pretty drunk. I'm starting to get bored with the drinking scene in Wilmington - mostly because I miss drinking with the people who taught me how to have fun while drinking.
The highlight so far this weekend was my 46 mile ride out to Oxford PA from Newark with Doug and Mike. We had a vicious headwind from the West on the way out, and I felt like pulling as much as possible. We met this old dude named Scott along the way, and he joined us. He was a complete badass for the following reasons:
- He never left his big ring, in 25 mph headwind mind you. The guy was a diesel truck that a hand grenade wouldn't have displaced.
- He's been racing since 1964, he used to race with Andy Hampsten.
- He has a sweet bike and rides without a helmet.
- He's quit "good jobs before because they didn't allow him to ride when he wanted to ride."
