Amsterdam

The Amsterdam t-shirt finally fits, though he'll probably grow out of it in a few months.
Thor had a great birthday and I was able to get out for a quick mtb ride during his nap.

Speaking of Amsterdam, bike capital of the universe, I'm working on setting up my pit 'cross bike to commute to work. Driving is for chumps. I need to get more hours on the bike and save some cash so riding the bike to work a couple of days a week is the way to go. The commute is about 14 miles each way which should make for some good riding if I can figure out all of the logistics.

I need to mount some beefy flat-resistant tires and a rear flasher. I can use either the bar or helmet mounted night light if there's not enough light in the mornings. I'm not going to bother putting on a big chain ring. I'll spin out the 42 on downhills, but that's not a big deal.

My biggest issue is stuffing work clothes in my messenger bag. I still have to wear a shirt and tie, except on Fridays when I can go bare-chested 8-). I suppose I could get the shirts folded at the cleaners...or just ball them up and go with the wrinkled look.

Hey Chris! When I ride to work, I will typically drive to work on Monday and take a weeks worth of clothes, easier riding and no wrinkles!!! Have fun! Jenn
