Hello all you LAZY non-riders. This is a humorous "Protest Thread" to that Dictatorial RD and his rulesy Consecutive Days riding thead. This thread will allow you to be proud that you accepted the fact that you weren't going to strap on the helmet and do a ride at all. Any excuse counts, weather concerns, business travel and other impediments or just downright laziness and apathy. So, here is the challenge. DON'T RIDE AS MANY DAYS IN A ROW AS POSSIBLE. And I'll be making this the mantra for the year:

"As you ramble through Life, Brother,
Whatever be your goal.
Grab the doughnut,
And stuff it in your piehole."




No rules...just no ride...

I almost didn't ride today cause I feel exhausted. I'm to stupid not to. I did promise myself on the way that I won't ride tomorrow or Sunday.

I'm poor at slacking on outdoor rides, rarely going more than 3 days straight (and sometimes cheating by running). But I'm world-class at indoor riding slacking. Despite having rollers, a fluid trainer, and stationary bike, I haven't used any of them for ~500 days. Even here I've cheated a little by infrequent indoor rowing.
