Personal record embarassment

I used my broken front wheel as an excuse to get out of an Old La Honda time trial climb (my real excuse is that I am out of shape). It's a good thing I didn't go, as I would have the shame of being beat by someone on a unicycle.

From the post-TT news:

"...Highlight of the day, however, was Steve Nash on his unicycle, who scored a 27:52, leading the day's time-wheel product ranking." [ed: my efforts are usually 27-28-ish]

I dropped a couple hundred dollars today on a new set of rims, but perhaps I have this whole road cycling thing wrong. I should have just taken my front wheel off and wheelied up Old La Honda instead. Think of all the weight you save.
