    Rode to Harvard Sq to do reading for my class @ Harvard and then goto class. Beautiful weather. Little windy. Traffic was good, as were the roads, save for by the Harvard fields. F'n potholes there are DANGEROUS. Gonna call later today and complain about them. By far the worst road in Boston I have ridden on.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    Yeah all that snow/rain/freezing temperatures has made a ton of new potholes, its gross.Hey, aren't you a dinosaur?

    The roads are getting bad again this weather blows. I had to ride home last night in the slick shitty ice and crap and now it is hella cold.

    the mass ave. bridge is like a goddamned beach. it's ridiculous. other than that, it was a pretty nice ride.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    I didn't run into too much salt on my way to and from school. The puddle outside my apt also dried up, which is nice. Le sigh about the cold though.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    i fuckin' blew out my rear tyre yesterday on walnut street in newton highlands. i couldn't avoid a big pothole cuz i was hemmed in by cars and i was goin' pretty fast. i attempted to hop it but only my front tyre made it and WHAM. even made my speedometer fall off and must've made my blinky on my li'l saddlbag flap up and hit my saddle and shatter. whatevs. . .

    ^cheap alex rims held up though. i was sure i'd fucked up the rim, but slapped a new tube in and good to go. +1 for cheap alex rims!

    ^+1 on that! I should've killed mine like nine times by now, but they keep rolling true.

    Was riding to class this AM and had some girl in a white jeep liberty cut me off to go into that parking lot after the BU bridge. I managed to skid/turn/whomp the side of her car, and am totally ok (bike is fine, I'm fine). Got really pissed as she had passed me to get to the entrance of the lot, and so had to have seen me. While yelling at her she apologized and asked if I was ok, and began to cry. Felt pretty bad about making her cry and being such a jerk, but honestly, she saw me and turned anyways.

    Otherwise it's been nice today.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    Yeah, it's cold out. But not too much wind, which kept things slightly better.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    Even with full fenders, i got really soaked going home from work last night after midnight, and then again as i headed back in this morning. My shoes, socks, gloves are all sitting on the heater vents right now filling the room with the aroma of eau de champignon.Troglodytarum is latin for troll

    ^ yeah, the pavement is now the jam.
  14.  
    Yeah the pavement is great it just sucks that they are now feeling the need to dig it up and do shit and then putting shitty patch jobs down. I took over a year for them to get it all ground down replace all the curbs and everything and repave it in random sections. I figured they would fix all the stuff under the road then. Well this is Boston afterall what can we really expect road work takes forever here and they are allways going back because they messed it up the first time.-LD

    ^yesterday I about got blown over on comm ave. I ended up just taking the right lane since the wind kept knocking me around. Cars were pretty nice about it since it was obvious that the wind was being a pain in the ass. Stupid bag being full as crap and acting like a sail/parachute. Glad to hear there is less wind today.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!
