When I want to ride, which I did today, I always put a few easy ones on top of the list and slide riding in #3. Something like....

1) Get up
2) Get dressed
3) Ride

I might sneak eating in between 2 & 3.

Seriously, I found it easier to block out an entire day and devote it to chores. Tell the friends and family not to call, unless they want to help, put on old clothes and go at it. Don't even shower until you're done. I usually pick a day somewhere around Thanksgiving and winterize all the lawn equipment and all the bikes except the 9er.

It amazing when people know you're working they leave you alone. If they want to see me during work mode they have to come over because I don't answer the phone. They aren't going to do that unless they're going to follow me around. If they do, I use them to fetch stuff. People leave quick when they realize they're a helper.

Hope there's lots of good riding days like this left.
