Real Men Bonk

For some reason I thought today it would be ok to roll the MTB on the roadies group ride. Three hours later, hating the rolling resistance and draping my tongue over my top tube, I bonked.

It had been a while since I had paid a visit to the "pain cave" so I guess I was due. The epic bonk isn't as bad when you have views like this to console you (however I would have much rather been consoled by a nice cup of coffee and a warm muffin). I managed to get within a mile of my home before I had to run into the gas station and mow down 3 PayDay candy bars.

Views from the pack.... Thanks Becker, for always keepin things in perspective.

MTB + Road Group Ride = Podium spots!

Ah, payday to the rescue! I know someone who bonked hard in southern WI and ended up eating field corn. Im with you in opting for the coffee and a nice warm muffin. Keep pushin!

Did you purposely choose "paydays?" Quite appropriate, wouldn't you say? Mothers don't like to hear about these things though! Where is that energy goo when you need it?
