Last one up the Hill is a rotten egg...

Trek_rider2_032 Wayne has thrown down the cycling glove. He thinks he can take me on the Hill. Well, my friend, just because you got that brand spanking new Trek Pilot 5.0, don’t for a minute think I’ll concede without a fight.

For the past six months, Wayne has been researching road bikes. He looked at Treks and non-Treks. At the time, I could have smacked him with a frying pan -– how could he not buy a Trek. Hello, I write a blog for the company. I threatened him, as in, I will never write about you again if you buy a non-Trek.  Wasn’t much of a threat though when he replied, “Good.”  Agggh.

Despite me, he did get the Pilot for the reasons I think all of us Trek-lovers buy our rides -– it’s the best bike for the buck. He loved the riding position, fit, gearing and the fact that it’s red. Color matters, people, and not just to us girls. But, when I asked him the #1 reason he chose the Pilot, he said “smoking my $%^ up Capitol Hill.”

Oh, it’s on.

P.S. Thanks to Mike Harris at Revolution Cycles for fine-tuning Wayne’s ride to his perfect fit.


It's on alright. I'm feeling an event of "monumental" proportions here. . . Don't you mess with a Women Who Rides, Wayne. We stick together. I might let Laura draft off me. . . .

Oooooo Jen Polo, you better get down here and ride with us. I can see it now... Pilot 5.0 vs. WSD 5000 vs. Equinox. Better start training on those hills, you're gonna need it sister.

Is there's anyone out there wondering what N.O.N.N.A. actually stands for? Well, it's a long story so don't bother to ask. AND, Laura, if you even consider it I will blog my sleepy-time pictures 4 all to see. -:)

Uuuuunh, huuuuh. Who's sleeping now?
