El Toro Negro, March 2, 2007

This whole El Toro thing is of course a reference to Hemmingway's famous blank white page. And I used the Negro version during a particularly meaningful moment in the evolution of Blue Stephanie.

But today, the black bull was the unyielding tarmac of Leesburg and vicinity. I haven't been on a bike since maybe October, so I'm choosing not to be embarrased by the following--the numbers from today's ride:

El Toro Negro, March 2, 2007
62 degrees, clear skies
8.4 miles
46 minutes
12 mph average speed
Condition at end of ride: totally wasted

To my mind, this is pathetic. But I'm an old man, and I'm choosing not to be embarrased.

Adios Campagnola
