The gym is closed today so I took the opportunity to get in a nice bike ride. Luckily the weather has cleared up and it was beautiful out today. I put in about 18 miles with most of it along the coast. Saw lots of other bicyclists out there so apparently I wasn’t the only guy with the idea.

I took my Fat Cyclist jersey out for its maiden voyage and I really like it. I’ve never actually owned a bike jersey but now I get the appeal. I did get picked on a little bit for wearing it though. I pulled up next to a guy in a beater pickup truck and he said to me “Dude that’s a pretty truthful shirt, bro. Like too truthful.” Not sure if he was commenting on my actual girthy-ness or just the boldness of a jersey that’s states I am fat… either way I thought it was pretty funny.

Hopefully the time I put in on the bike makes up for all the Thanksgiving excitement I’m about to engage in. I’ve got 2 dinners to make my way through!

Happy Turkey day everybody!

    And, I the pictures make me envious — it is barely 40 here today!

    Thanks! Having grown up in Wisconsin I definitely appreciate the weather here.

    I like your bike jersey’s use of a Clydesdale for its emblem. I wouldn’t worry overmuch about people agreeing with it though, if you keep on losing weight as you’ve done up to now it won’t last long. Keep it up.

    I think the clydesdale kind of looks like a festively plump ferrari logo :)

    I'm sure that was the idea ;>)
