No shirt… Nice. Notice the tennis shoes? Yeah. I know. Just hang on a minute. It gets better.
2012. Better, but good God am I skinny!:
Incidentally, there’s a reason for my being so skinny. This was the first time I’d really started putting in some big miles on the bike…
I dropped down to pro cyclist weight (2.0 pounds per vertical inch) and I hadn’t figured out how to eat to sustain a more reasonable weight yet.
The change came shortly after these photos were taken.
2013 Getting better…
2014 – Now that’s more like it!
It’s amazing to me that I A) survived my initial geeky entry into cycling and B) never knew I was geeky.
Funny how that works, ain’t it?
The point of this post, fellow noobs, is don’t take yourself or “society” so seriously. We all look dorky at first. Even the cool kids. It’s a rite of passage.
