It's been a wonderful summer so far. Chet Jeppesen, one of our directors, headed up our float for the 4th of July parade in Rupert--it was a multi-seated bicycle which I understand was a fantastic success. I wan to thank him and everyone who helped. Watch for us at both county fairs as well as in the Cassia county fair parade. We'll have a booth at both fairs with Mini-Cassia trivia so come with your random facts brimming to win Chamber Cash!
This year I undertook something I've never done before. Way back in January I signed up to participate in the Spudman Triathlon in July. By the time this is printed it'll be all over, but as I write this I still have a few days to stew over it. I've learned several things in preparation of this event. I didn't get a new bike, or even a slightly used bike. I opted to use my old Fuji 10 speed that I rode all through college. Its handle bar wraps had come off about 2 years ago and I don't think it had ever been lubed properly. The front brakes worked quite well, but the back brakes hadn't worked in a long time. My first ride I took it about 6 miles. By the time I got there, my hands were asleep and I could hardly walk. How was I going to manage 25 miles? So I took it to Rock's Cycle Shop and had him work it over. New padding and working everything made a world of difference. He also suggested I use gloves to help with the numbness and protect my hands in case I fall down. So, what did I learn? Taking care of your equipment, using the proper equipment and seeking advice from someone who knows can save a lot more than money. It can make your job easier and safer. You don't have to have everything new to succeed, but what you have needs to be functional.
