This evening I went on a long-ass bike ride through Yuppieville (West Des Moines). Aside from the stupid people in SUVs who don’t pay attention to large white dudes on large black bikes, it was a rather pleasant ride.
Oh, I guess there was one other thing. It took me 4 attempts to find a gas station with a properly functioning pressurized air hose. Not a huge deal…but a little annoying. Eventually, I found on at the Kum & Go on 50th and Mills Civic Parkway. I even avoided the temptation to go into the adjoining McDonalds and buy a Double QPC and a McFlurry.
Here’s hoping for a relaxing evening of leftover pizza, beer, and “Syriana“.
