GM, Ford, Chrysler…HA!

It’s about time. The only way people are going to stop driving cars is when it gets too expensive. And luckily, we’re approaching that stage. 3 million auto jobs lost in the first year? Good. Thats 3 million more people to build and sell bikes. I hope the chinese auto makers go under too.

In other news, I have an off day tomorrow. Which is good because my bike is very messed up right now. It’s currently in the shop being worked on, maybe. The mechanic said they would try to get to it tomorrow, but they’re extremely busy because of the Tour de Tucson on Saturday. My crank keeps getting loose and I have to get off and tighten it every 10 minutes.

One last thing. Last year I always took an ice bath after every workout for 10 minutes. But I didn’t use ice, the water in the faucet was way below 60 degrees, which is what you need for an ice bath. But the water that comes out of the faucet here is too warm. The coldest it gets is probably 75 degrees. There is no room in the freezer for ice bags, plus buying ice every day is too expensive and impractical. I’ve been contemplating buying a bunch of re-freezable ice packets to strap to my legs, or I could soak some small towels in water and then freeze them, then wrap those around my legs. If you have any suggestions, let’s here hear them.
