See this?


This a hospital bracelet. You get it when they rush you to the ER for 3 liters of IV fluids after you bike 124 miles. I'm mostly recovered now, was released from the ER in Morris, IL at about 9pm last night.
I finished the ride slightly slower than I'd hoped, got chased by an angry pit bull at about 105 miles in, but felt pretty good when I got to the end. Stepped off the bike and was fine for about 5 minutes, at which point I passed out. I came to within seconds, and was up for a couple of minutes, which I don't really remember most of, and then I passed out again.
Ended up getting a ride in the ambulance with the siren and everything...
Total this past weekend, I did 66 miles on Saturday, and 124 miles on Sunday, for a grand metric total of 300km.

You know, I have friends in the health-care industry. You didn't need to go through all this trouble just to ride in an ambulance!

But I think that the insanity is part of the charm.

Please be careful, Shea.  I don't want to see you buried in biker shorts.

Its all part of racking up those battle scars.

This obsession with biking is a social disease spreading quickly across our land.  One by one my friends and acquaintences fall victim.

The latest is my co-worker Jay.  Formerly lazy, Jay bought a bike and now rides it everywhere.  Tonight he stopped by work (he normally is here during the daytime) drunk off his ass.  Apparently he had been riding his bike all over the city, stopping every now and then to consume more alcohol.

It's now 2AM and I suspect he's still out there, peddling and partying through the night.
