We should have started the MS150 today - there was a strong wind out of the east all morning, we'd have made it to Austin in record time. I settled for the Terry Hershey/Bear Creek loop instead. I was flying all the way out to Fry road but then had to turn back into the wind and struggled a bit.
I was glad to be riding at all today. My road bike went under the knife last week for major open bottom-bracket surgery. I noticed that the cranks had a bit of lateral play - didn't seem like much but it turned out I needed a new bottom bracket. She came through with flying colours but it was a bit touch and go - they couldn't get the bracket apart and had to jury-rig a big cheater bar. It tore up the retaining cup but they were able to replace it and she's as good as new (well, as good as you can expect for a 25 year old bike). Certainly she rode very well today.
