Gravel Road Less Traveled
Between snow storms I was able to ride outside both of the last two Saturdays. Last Saturday I got out the go fast machine and had some fun attempting to ride at speed.
Today I got out a new to me toy, my cyclecross bike and hit the trails. This bike has had a few good owners previous to me. It makes for pretty inexpensive fun riding the gravel trail in West Terre Haute. Probably make a nice ride to work bike as well. One could honestly say I spoil myself rotten with bikes, but all of them together is less than one motorcycle. Well that's my excuse anyway.
Kind of makes me feel like I was 10 again getting dirty and sweaty riding down back alleys. Guess I haven't changed much (less the wrinkles anyway).
Next race is just 8 weeks away at St. Anthony's Triathlon in Florida. Considering this winter it may not be very impressive, but I 'm planning on giving it my best. If nothing else seeing what the sun looks like again will be worth the trip.
