Dearest Sister visited not so long ago (and I commented with additional occurences) about, if a product appeals to us, it often can be the kiss of death. It has happened with alarming frequency that when we fall in love with something, be it *FHPs, cigarettes (oh we no longer smoke and haven't for an ever so long time!), a Celestial Seasonings tea flavor, a type of candy (remember Hershey-ettes? I am sure you don’t…) we need to stock up because that will guarantee it will be taken off the market!
It has happened again.
I rode my bike today. I went to log my miles on the web site that I have used since commencing to commute by bike (2006 for those keeping score). It’s been all updated! Well and good. These things happen and are somewhat expected. But! My login didn’t work. Since last I used it (early to mid June), I needed to set up a new profile, which means all this years miles are lost? Whatever. New profile, name, email, too many questions/reasons for communting….blah blah blah…where can I log my miles? Calculate carbon emissions saved? Figure calories burned?
No where it seems. No where at all. Seems the purpose of this here website has changed.
Great. Just great. And whatever. I will guess at what I have ridden this year, and just record my miles myself.
After all, the carbon emission savings only made me feel good, and I never believed what they said about the calories burned. If that math worked, I would be a mere shadow of myself!
Other biking notes:
The Singing Man last week…passing between The Gardens and the CSU ropes course, there was an adult man singing. His back was to the trail, and was facing Spring Creek. He was practicing vocal exercises and singing along classical lines…not like reggae or pop or country…
The Accident today…complete with ambulance, stretcher, and traffic cones. Someone crashed on the bike path, and required paramedics. Crashee was awake as I passed, and I saw no blood. Looked to be a leg injury, but I was paying attention to not crashing myself.
Bike to Work Week this week...freebies on Wednesday, and the trails will be rife with amateurs! Not that I am judging. It actually gives me a chance to pass instead of be passed!
