Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

For a little light humor I wanted to share what I found to be my Best, Worst, Biggest and Weirdest moments of 2014.

 

Best

Bike I rode:  Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt

Discovery:  3M Scotch Brand Super 77.  We’ve all seen riders abandon the Tour.  When they do someone “Peels” their number off.  Note, they don’t unpin the number.  Have you ever wondered how wonderful it would be to have race numbers that were stickers.  The dreaming is over.  Super 77 is the answer and it works great!  NEVER pin a number to your $140 bibs again! (Note I was told not to leave your number on after the race.  Remove it soon after to prevent it not wanting to come off!  I also learned not too over apply it.  Go light or it might leave glue behind.)

Best Discovery related to cycling in years.

YouTube video:  I have watched this video dozens of times.  I nearly piss myself every time.

Movies:  Captain America: Winter Solider, Dawn of the Plant of the Apes, Lego Movie, and Grand Budapest Hotel

Trail Side Nap: IMG_8710

Worst:

Ride:  Is there really such a thing?  If there is it was…  ??

Bill:  Paying a $136 to have a half a contact removed from my eye when it tore on me.  The office visit was 10 minutes.

Hangover:  August First Friday, into Saturday and Sunday…

Crash:

Slipped a pedal practicing starts and took the hood to the bicep.
