Bicycle Restoration

I'm still pretty slammed with work and life right now, but it is Monday and I wanted to post something.

My buddy and I played at a Stag n' Doe on Saturday night, doing our acoustic duo thing. It was a really fun night. I don't know what your experience of such events is like, but in my world these are usually pretty boozie affairs. I didn't go crazy or anything because I was playing, but I drank enough that leaving my car there overnight was the wisest course of action.

I awoke fairly early on Sunday morning, feeling a little bit hung over. It was cool and raining lightly. I got into some cycling clothes and rode out to the Stag n' Doe location to get my car. I have long been a believer in the restorative powers of a bike ride when you're feeling a little worse for wear. This ride was just over seven miles, so no big deal. The rain got heavier. I made no attempt to stay dry, instead allowing the cool rain to wake me up.

If you don't list riding your bike among your favourite hangover cures, I strongly recommend giving it a try, and arrange for some cool rain to fall if you can. Rain makes it even better.
Be Good,

I wish I could say I'd experienced the same luck. For me if I'm hung over, there's no real cure ... and riding generally just makes it worse. Consider yourself lucky!

You sneaky guy. With that title, I figured the post would be about THE Trek. Instead, it was about A trek. Still good, though tricky.

Apertome - Huh. I guess I am lucky! I'm sorry my trick doesn't work for you too.

Steve - yep, I'm bad that way. Mwah hah hahhh!

Hung over, eh? That's okay sometimes.

So, this is like a "Fat Tire" project LOL!

Peace :)

Amen, brother! A good ride is also definitely the best cure for that weird logy feeling left over after taking Nyquil or that bizarre blue Tylenol PM cough/cold syrup stuff (a feeling which, I'm pretty sure, is more or less a hangover anyway :D).
