Just in the nick of time for the first good rain of fall, my steed is nearly complete and my vestments ready. The road to San Diego lies wide open, evoking smoky visions of rooftops at midnight, forgotten alleyways, silver Shoreline, space battles, un-flat tires that turn the peddles for you, too-late romance, coastal dinosaurs, and that perverted Paul Bunyan statue leering from the redwoods to the north. I have no definite time schedule and an appropriately liquid concept of the intended route. Furthermore, I have already surmounted unspeakable personal barriers by at least half-braking a solemn promise I once made to myself on the top of an erupting volcano in Micronesia on Eck New Year to never wear spandex or clip-ons.

I'm buying biking shorts.
