As if riding wasn’t exciting enough, NANMRA brings it to a whole new level. Road rash must really hurt.
z and I went for a ride today, in the sweltering heat. We were both drenched after an hour, from sweat. It was still fun though. And then I followed z up to the cycle place so he could drop the bike off for its first maintenance. I followed him in the car, and I counted 23 bikes, with 28 people total. Only two had full gear on, about 5 had jackets on. Most were just tank tops, t-shirts, bikini’s, or one guy had nothing on but flip flops and cut jeans for shorts. Idiots. I may have to investigate some lighter gear, as mine is predominantly black. I’d still rather sweat than ride without the gear. Something about liking my skin attached to my body….
