Ride 2 Work Monday

Today marked my first bike ride into the office this year. I only had to put some air in the tires, and the old LeMond was ready to roll. Temps. were a bit on the chilly side, but it still felt great to leave the car behind for a day. Last year I put just shy of 1,000 miles on the commuter, and I didn't start up until early June. Starting this early in the spring, I'm hoping to maybe double that number this season. In other riding news: I'll be ready to go for the first WNR of the season this week @ Headquarters. I'll plan on starting at 6:00 (unless someone is firmly committed to coming and can't make it until 6:30, in which case let me know and we'll wait for you). I'm not sure if all the singletrack will be rideable, but I'm sure we'll be able to piece together a good hour loop in the neighborhood. Speaking of the neighborhood, ours is apparently going to heck a hand basket. To make a long story short, Sarah and I are going to have to start locking our doors. While I was gone on my trip, some a**hole entered our home without permission and stole a rather substantial amount of money from us. I've lived in this house for over ten years now, and I've never once felt that I had to lock the doors. All that changes today when I get home from work and install a new doorknob with a lock. It is my sincere hope that whomever robbed us suffers severe misery and pain for the rest of their days on earth. That is all. Over and out.

Dude, that sucks. Sounds like maybe Little Buddy and Bohdi need a new friend... perhaps a vicious attack pitbull.

It sounds like it is probably someone you know. If it was a random person, they probably would have taken the first few things that they saw of value instead of looking around for cash. I definately recommend some locks... you just can't trust anyone these days.

We now lock the doors. And I am pretty certain it was someone who knew Pete was gone and knew the dogs. It really is creppy! I just hope that the person at least gave Bodhi and G a treat...
