This week in Bike Commuting: TGIF

Rode the Bianchi San Jose to work Friday morning and had a little mishap on Pond Brook Road. My battery for my headlight fell off on one particularly nasty section of gravle.  I turned around to go get it and passed a car coming up the road and all I could think of is I hope he didn't run it over. Fortunately, it fell off in the middle of road and it was fine.

It's been pretty good these past couple of weeks of not having to bring home my behemoth laptop, which really is a portable, engineering workstation, the 7+ lb Dell M6600, but this weekend it had to come home with me.

I have two relatively flat routes that I can take for single speeding.  I can take hillier routes but my gearing kills me in the hills.  In the morning I rode my Pond Brook route and on the way home I rode RT 302, which I usually avoid because it can be really busy.  However, this past week it was just paved so I had to have me a taste of that black butter and smooth and buttery it was!

I was sadden to see that there was no longer a spiritual message in front of this church.  When I rode this route more frequently there was always an interesting spiritual message.  

But the new pavement was nice!
Like drinking an ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon on a hot day.

I stopped off at the Bottle Stop for bottle of Berkshire Brewing Company's Oktoberfest.

It was a delicious way to end the day!
