Remember in the movie Napoleon Dynamite after the credits when Kip sings the “I Love Technology” song to Lafawndah?
Well, I just ended my usual Monday morning Instant Message (IM) conversation with a cycling buddy at work where we talk about where we rode over the weekend. Here’s how the conversation basically went.
Buddy: Dude, have you ever ridden on
Mike: No, did you ride there this weekend?
Buddy: Yeah, it was awesome, Check this out. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/10419839
(Mike quickly looks at route so he can comment)
Mike: that looks like a great route, top speed of 48mph bet that was scary.
Buddy: yeah I started to get speed wobbles
Mike: whoa, I might have been hitting the brakes. I did the Snohomish group ride. Check out this route. You’d like it http://connect.garmin.com/activity/10318940
Buddy: Yeah, that looks like a nice route. I’ll have to check out the group ride
Mike: If I can get my bike to
Buddy: Man, that’s a high elevation. Wonder if you’ll feel the difference.
On most Monday mornings that’s how the IM’s go. It’s 5 minutes of cycling geekdom that I totally enjoy. By the end of the conversation for some reason I’ve got Kip’s version of “I Love Technology” running through my head. I Love Technology!
