The Vitus continues to feel good. Of course, there are the physical adjustments with a DF bike...no recumbent seat and different seating position, which use different muscles than a rider does on a DF bike. Being upright, there is more stress on the hands, butt, neck, and shoulders. The recumbent had its own quirks when it came to physical adjustments. So, this is part of riding. Overall, I felt very good on the bike and the bike handled so well. No moments of anxious anticipation on descents like I had with the Silvio. Just let it rip and hang on. Speed is fun.
Tomorrow, a shorter ride and a meeting at 0900 at the Murray Hotel in Silver City, NM, to look at the space there where Jim Leidich and I will be volunteering on Friday and Saturday. There will be a number of activities, exhibits, and sales going on there and we're there to, well, I'll find out more tomorrow, but, mostly, it's because Jim and I are such excellent bullshitters and interact with strangers well. Jim is bringing the single malt scotch to take our level of bullshitting to new heights. Just kiddin'. Really.
Ok, a tune to get out of here with..."Night and Day" by Tony Martin. Tony died today at age 98. He was one of the last crooners of the Hollywood era from the 1940's, 50's, etc. One of my parents favorites, we grew up listening to these crooners despite our protests to our parents that this was way too corny. Some pretty good tunes and singing, IMHO. Tony was married to Cyd Charisse, one of those classy, glamorous dancers, singers, actresses of the same era. Tony continued singing until just recently..and got good reviews, too.
