A new season at UC Davis
Wednesday, September 24, 2008 - General
I've been studying professionally since 2005 and nothing makes me more excited than the start of a new season. For those not familiar with pro pupil "new season" terminology, it's sometimes called a new "school year." Only call it a "school year" if you want to look amateur.

The thing I look forward to most is 11:50am to 12:00pm during the first week. This is when 5000 new amateur students, who haven't ridden their bikes since elementary school, all come together and form the equivalent of a Mens D collegiate crit right on campus.

I find it especially entertaining when some dude decides that he's a rebel and traffic circles are for followers. I can only laugh as he cuts through the middle and causes total chaos. Moments like these make my year, err, I mean season.

ya...super entertaining when an amateur rebel dude on a tricked out new super flashy fixie passes you doing series speed, dodging traffic, only to hit the bike circle to run into traffic and forget to keep pedaling! which I saw happen today... glad I was behind the studly rider! fortunately, he didn't take any young coeds out...let the good times roll on campus.

The best entertainment arrives only after all those 5000 new students think they know what the hell they're doing and start riding with reckless overconfidence.

Then, it rains.
