How Do They Do that?

This morning I headed out to Georgetown to test again the second-hand road bike that I tested on Sunday night. On Wednesday I went to Cyclepath and talked to Christie about the used bike and also tried two new ones. They felt good but I was really unsure about spending the kind of money required for new. After half an hour of riding a hilly road in Georgetown this morning I decided that the used one would be a reasonably good fit once I change the stem and have it fitted. I will also buy the clip in pedals and shoes.


Here I am with the new bike. I always wondered how people held their bikes above their heads like that. Now I know. The bikes in those pictures only weigh about 20 pounds.

On the way back from Georgetown I met Gail for lunch at Kelsey’s. I had the Asian Grilled Steak Salad. It was delicious.

This afternoon Trystan’s friend Edmund came over and we played Rumoli. Edmund and I both had to borrow from the bank to keep playing against Trystan until I had a run of good hands and paid back the bank and had enough left over to keep playing.


For dinner we went out to Five Guys. We went once before over a year ago and the kids have been asking to go back ever since. We ordered three large fries between the six of us and it was way too much. I had the vegetable sandwich which was quite good and not nearly as filling as the burgers.


Typical teens.
