So when we last left off the AIDS Lifecycle training, I was having a meltdown, threatening to toss my bike into the ocean and went back into a coma for about ten hours.
Brendan Patrick heads up a "happy hour" bike ride every Friday, so I decided to ride with him today. I was supposed to do the 71 mile ride Saturday, BUT I had somewhere to be Friday night (more on that later) and I knew I wouldn't be getting home before 3AM.
I had e-mailed Brendan and told him about the tire and he told me to "calm down, we'll fix it."
He took one look at it and said, "oh. The valve is broken." I wouldn't have known what a broken valve looked like, so guess who had to change their first tire today?
It took five people to help me change it, because the tire is new and big and other official bike words were being thrown around, but it finally got changed.
The next drama was discovering that we didn't reset my brakes, so I had no brakes.
Anyways, we finally finished a brief ride around Griffith Park.
It was our old AIDS Marathon training route from the first year (when we were still allowed to train in the park entirely and not have to run through Burbank). We stayed inside (so we didn't have to deal with traffic) and then went down the "L.A. River" Bike Path.
Since I originally had planned to ride Saturday, I had to cancel plans with Zen for Friday night. However, having completed the ride on Friday afternoon, I called her to see if she still wanted to go out. She did.
And we went to see Tiffany. Tiffany was performing at The Factory in West Hollywood. (Which is like going to a really attractive preschool.) Tiffany went on at 1 AM. (Zen and I realized we were old around 11.) Tiffany performed some of her new songs, which are great and she's bowling on the ANGEL MAFIA team on Sunday.
