What a day. I wanted to go for a bicycle ride and my friend Margo was like ok let’s go. I’m not signed up for the AIDS Lifecycle yet but I arrive at the Sports Basement Presidio in the back parking lot at 9:30am on a Saturday morning. I see 75 cars or so with just as many riders there as well. I feel super nervous. I see loads of riders decked in head to toe in full on riding gear. I’m the only guy there without cycling shoes, just me and my bike and shoes and my panier… gulp again, I have a panier. So I’m carrying extra weight in the pannier, I don’t have a way to clip into my bicycle, and everyone around me looks like they are attending the Tour de France.
