My speedy roadster / hot rod bicycle has been turned into a semi truck. 🙁

I suppose I intellectually knew it, but it’s the difference between driving a volkswagon and thinking you can drive a Peterbilt.

Also have learned as strong as my legs like to think they are, they’re NOT strong enough to start in a high gear from a dead stop toting a load. (well, more of a load than my fat ass they normally lug around.)

Silver linings:  my sweat glands are in perfect working order. Big trucks haven’t created too much “jet wash.”. 20 miles in and I haven’t lost my license. Yet.
