Yeah, we dumped. We rode w/Dave to school today. It was really easy on the way there b/c I didn't have the trailer =) On the way home, however...I was cutting the corner of a gas station and I forgot the trailer was wider than me. The trailer tipped and then so did I! Luckily Intelligently, we were both wearing helmets and Mo was fine on the side. He just yelled at me! "HEY!" I was wearing mittens b/c it's still so cold at 7am, so that saved my hands from getting scraped. I have a pinky-nail sized chunk of skin missing from my left knee but that appears to be the only damage. What doesn't appear is the sore knees! That and I'm guessing I'll have some great bruises tomorrow! Oh well...all together we rode 6.8 miles. I think that number is a little off b/c we cut through a park that doesn't exit on google maps, but it's the best I can do. Someone said I should try using google earth instead but I'm not much of a map person and since I finally feel like I know what I'm doing on one program, I really don't want to try another! Well, how is everyone else doing? Keeping track of your miles? Finding new routes to avoid hills? I know our ride this morning could have been shorter, but we have some pretty big hills around the river! Hope you've been enjoying your time outside!

It's been so rainy here I'm only getting to ride about three days a week. I know there are people who ride in the rain, but I hate it, and besides, I have to look halfway clean for work. Any way, I'm getting about 9-12 miles per week so far.
