Weathering the weather
To Woodlands, 101 km. I don't want to cycle today as Saturday traffic is heavier. But it is sunny. Instead of being angry with the weather in case it messes up my traditional Sunday ride, I ride bike while the sun shines. I vow not to go home till I cover 100 km. In little Singapore, that's hard. I cycle to get used to my shiny new toy. I find that wearing thinner socks ($13 for 6 pairs! Branded too!) gives more pedal "float". My steering is messy - a pitted headset. As the bearings can't come off, I buy a new headset. And seatpost clamp. I don't know if my bicycle is lighter, but my wallet is.
