Keeping up with the Neulings...


My ride home from work on Wednesday!

I regularly ride my bike to work. Yep, I'm a fit, strapping young lad. Approximately once a month I get my tredley out and organise myself to ride the 16kms to work in the morning and home again at night. Usually it needs some other form of persuasion too - such as a new 'thing' that I buy for my bike. This week it was a $5 LED light I picked up in Hong Kong. Not much - but enough to get me off my lazy butt and ride!

The weird thing is, I really enjoy the actual ride to and from work... I just hate the getting up an hour earlier to get ready, and how I have to be organised enough to have clothes etc ready so I can shower/change at work... pathetic excuse I know!

Anyway, another motivation this week was to log the ride with a GPS unit and download it using Sportsim and MotionBased (both pointed out to me by Mikey) so I can view my ride and play it back and do other sorts of useless, nerdy things with it! WEEHEE I LOVE IT!

Bring on the geek/nerd comments... come on - I dare you! Rate this as more or less nerdy than my Zip Zap post if you wish...

brad you are SUCH a nerd ... but I love you for it! I have no idea what you are talking about so this is going to be the extent of my comment!
p.s. I LOVED the zip zap post! I cant wait to see it next time we are over. (Danny giggled like a school girl when he read it)

Love ya work although I'm not sure you should be letting the girls know our real geek motivations.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take a wireless-equipped laptop next time, and war-ride the trip.

I rate this more nerdy, only because I have only a slight understanding of what you are talking about. Which I love. So bring it on! Up the geek ante! ...and I'll keep reading and learning something new and making pointless comments.
