So, today was pretty busy. This morning when I went to go into work, I found a flat on the rear tire of my bike. I popped in a new tube and sweat popped out all over me. Unfortunately, somehow changing the tube in my tire made my left pedal pop annoyingly every time I push down on it. Something had to get messed up when I set the bike down after I took the tire off. Any thoughts, Dad?
I evidently didn't inflate the tube enough and the ride in was horrible. I felt like I was carrying about 50 extra pounds on my back. I was grimy and sweaty by the time I got to work, so I enjoyed the shower. Unfortunately, when I set out to Mile High Station, where the event was held, my chain came off and I got grimy again getting the chain back on. By the time I got there, I had sweat through my shirt, front and back. Nice.
The conference was nice, if not particularly exciting. They fed us very, very well, and Mile High Station is a really cool spot all done up in an industrial style. There's an old crane still hanging from the ceiling. Anyway, most of the sessions were pretty tame. The guy from Yahoo! had some good stuff, but the highlight of the show was unfortunately the last session. It was given by Lee Brimelow, who had all manner of super cool video apps. I ducked out after his presentation and a host of tasty hors d'oeuvres. Then it was a hot, hot ride back up to the office to grab my panniers and then back to the apartment.
But now I'm packed and prepped for the Sand Dunes tomorrow. I've remembered my camera, so there should be some good pix I hope.
