Monday. The sun tried to get up in the sky - but it was just DARK and kind of bleak out. Not cold - up top anyway. 28 when I left. I got strafed by no fewer than 7 cars going down mag. Speed limit is 30 - I was going 44 - and I had 7 people pass me in cars like they were heading to the hospital to deliver a baby. Passing on double yellow corners at 20mph over the speed limit - just to get around the god-damned crazy on the bike. MUST PASS BIKE - I think it's just hard wired into the human psyche. So - for the last 1.5 miles of the drop I was lined up behind said 7 cars. Ridiculous. It was freezing in the canyon - three layers on the face and head and I was still frozen. I am not complaining - mind you. Just expressing emotion. Bottom line is - I got out on my bike today and started my work week with a ride. That makes the day.
