Every Team Kermit member rides with a friend on their helmet. Some highly decorated. Mine not so much. My friend has a helmet of course and two buttons. Today's view is front facing: Showing an appreciation for warm hugs. Tomorrow's view will be the back.
The ride is three weeks away. I am either ready or I am not. For you can't really cram training. There is time for two big rides approaching 100 mile days. The rest will be sitting pretty at 25 to 40 miles. With the truly BIG concern of how will my friend Kermit ride on my helmet and even more vexing is what will he wear?
Lately I have been training with the Team Kermit kit on. First of all, all I can hear, in my head is Frozone asking where his super suit has been placed. And I laugh. For the Kermit kit is my super suit.
Second, I ride alone for the vast majority of my rides. And yesterday twice as I saw other groups of riders, individuals called out "Team Kermit" or "Green".
