Out with the old, in with the new

The time has finally come to set aside the things of the past and move on to fresh beginnings.

My helmet and I have been through a lot. It's the first helmet that was truly mine and mine alone. We've enjoyed college rides in Vermont, trips to California, and my first official MASS season to name a few. Though the padding was lost years ago, it smelled, was ugly, and didn't really fit properly ever; I didn't care it was my helmet, and it has brought me through many a scary and precarious fall, "safely".

I have much to look forward to, a grueling season of expert racing, a spiffy new bike (known as the "Tanginer" by my beloved teammates) and finally, freaking FINALLY a brand-spanking new helmet.

It's shiny, has pads, doesn't smell, and comes complete with a new fangled adjustment thingy so that it actually fits.

It really is the simple things in life...
