In Brief...

1. XC Skiing cancled; too warm on the mountain yeilds rain and avalance warning.

2. No trainer arrived in the truck. By new or harden up and ride in the dark?

3. North American Handmade Bicycle Show = Awsome! I didn't take pictures, not that it matters. Every blogger and magazine employee known to man took pictures. Suffice it to say that there were many nice frames at the show. And some weird shit, too. Like the $7000 MTB frame made out of kevlar/carbon fiber mesh.

I think I am going to add a dualthlon to the schedule. These guys host something called the Dirty Du; 5 mile run and 12 mile bike. What the heck? Might as well put all those Run Club miles to good use.

Sent Scott Q. an e-mail. It's about time to get specific on the second bike. I've got two 24's on the schedule for '08, and running one bike is risky...

Full ride schedule on tap for the week, including my first ever road race. I'm not talking about a crit or a circuit race, but an actual road race. Reports to follow.

I'm just a man; a man that likes to ride bikes...

MTB? Sure! SS Road? Yep! Crazy-ass unicycle race? Hell, I'll try anything once...

I'm the same old me, just warmer and wetter... :)
