Names of some of my rides on Strava

By default Strava names your ride by date. While it’s technically accurate for your feed to say “Johnnie Walker walked 3 miles on 8/27/12″ it’s just not that descriptive or interesting.

In the spirit of McSweeney’s, here are the titles of some of my recent morning rides in Central Park:

  • Missed the memo–It’s Everyone Wear Their Backpack Day!
  • Every day Shufflin’
  • Heavy Legs in Central Park. So Heavy.
  • 6am is Too Early
  • Lantern Rouge on the Hospital For Special Surgery Express Train
  • 88% Humidity Means Your Jersey Wicks Water From the Air, Not You
  • SQUIRRELS!
  • Zzzz… *snort*. Wha? HOLY SH** I’M ON A BIKE!
Titles that I have not used (or haven’t gotten to use yet):
  • OMG DID YOU SEE THE SIZE OF THAT RAT?
  • Wafts of weed, which way was I going again?
  • U guys do Tri? U in a frat? No? They y u jerks about wheel sucking? (troll face)

About Aaron Deutsch

Aaron has always felt a passion for, if not a gravitational pull from, racing. Since being lured from the basketball court onto the track in 1993 he set 7 track & field records and medaled six times at the state level of competition.

He moved to the mountain bike in the late 1990s and won the Penn Cycle Buck Hill race series in 2000 in the sport class. He also placed 4th in the Subaru Cup XC race that year.

After moving to New York Aaron took up road racing and rode unattached for the first year and medaled in 2 races including a 1st place finish in the Kissena Race Series in 2007. In 2008 the Brooklyn Arches Cycling Club was formed and the results were immediate and consistent including winning the Cadence Cup Race Series in Brooklyn. He currently races with the Major Taylor Iron Riders Development Team
