Mexico Riding Pictures

Just a few shots of riding in Mexico. Note the jank bikes. Note the maintainance being done on jank bikes. Notice Joe and Ellee still out riding (and enjoying) bikes!

Greetings from Mexico!

I am taking some time off the bike.

For the next little while, I will be traveling around Mexico with my girlfriend Ellee. While we might get to ride bikes one in a while, I won't be training on the bike in any way while I am here. This will be the longest I have spent not training in years. Part of me is sad, because there are lots of places down here that would be great on the MTB. On the other hand, lots of old injuries are healing and I expect to get back to the states in a very well-rested condition.

I have sketched out a race schedule and a training plan for 2010. I'd like to revisit some old spots (TI, DK) and enjoy some new challenges as well (Tahoe, Big Bear) but nothing is really set in stone yet.

So, expect to see very little in the way of updates here over the next couple of months. When I ride, I'll post something up. Otherwise, my focus will be on other things. If you want to know how my non-riding life is fairing, check out Facebook. I'm at least updating status every couple of days.

Take care,
