wrestling with a bear

so this tuesday at work a bear wandered out of the preserve and into the bodyshop. The bear and I got into a fight. I won. But I was left with a decent sized scratch across the upper cheek. Ok, so the bear wasn't really a bear; it was a drill that fell and hit me, but nonetheless. . . It bled a lot at first. The guy I was working with was certain that I needed to go to the hospital, but I didn't think so. It's healing well, yay!

I went out for a ride today. I only planned to ride for an hour, maybe 20 miles or so, but once I was out there I couldn't resist. I ended up riding from wheaton to elgin and back. Twas a good day for it too. Here's the stats:
time: 2:55
avg: 15mph
dist: 43.53miles
max: 34mph

I was going to see if I could sustain 30mph for an extended period of time but I couldn't shift into my largest front cog because my derailleur hates me. sigh...
