A Monologue with the Æther

A Bicycle Odyssey

Day Forty-eight: Wednesday 15 August 1990

Aurora, NE to Kearney, NE

Today, I have to find a bicycle shop. I have lost so many inches from dropping the fat that my bicycle shorts which fit well at the start of my ride are now loose and saggy causing me to chafe. I need new shorts. When I reach Grand Island, NE, I ride into town looking for a shop. I locate one on the route in to town.

I buy two pairs of bike shorts, change, and continue on my way. Ride proceeds uneventfully.
