It's Time

It's getting to be serious training time, Jan 1st is always the start of my favorite season, I just love long epic rides in cool weather (less so in wind rain or snow/ice).
We hope to get some weekend rides on our tandem too, but we must be nice to everyone we're riding with and not go too hard.

Nice to see some new members to the NW Blog community ,Coach Curly in particular, with his witty yet sensible advice colums, but I do wonder what he is doing with all those recipes?

Speaking of advice, I think I might have to take the advice of the esteemed RS and abstain from blogging, so I can get down to riding my bike and not flittering away my time reading blogs ( not likely to happen, but I will try). I will only read at work!!
Oh, yeah speaking of work, I got called in at midnight last saturday to open up the store and give someone from McDonalds a motor he needed to fix a fan that had shut down, God forbid someone would have to go without their Big Mac at 3am!!!! Let me miss my sleep, but don't let Bubba miss his Big Mac, Large fries and large Coke.
If the guy ever comes back, maybe he'll give me some Mickey D's $s, well I'll be sure to pass them on to RS, as I hear when he's out of range of Dicks, he just loves his McDonalds breakfast before a race ; -)

Happy New year to you all and ride long,slow and safely.

Oink Oink!!

It's Christmas time, so let's pig out... Stoked and I went out to dinner tonight and ate WAY too much. We went to Tutta Bella, so it wasn't hard to eat too much. We started with a mondo salad then both ate a whole 12" pizza, but the best part was the NUTELLA ice cream ( read it and weep .n)......yummy.

re Cycle Me!

Ok The snow is all gone and we're back on ther road! and on the Computrainer.
Last night I did my second Cylcle-U computrainer "race" and along with gaining 2 pounds in the past two weeks, I managed to go 23 seconds slower! I finished 5th of 7 in my heat, PruDog was 6th, in his 2nd effort of three for the night!!, and Stoked was 7th both not far behind. El Gato was there and despite his claims of drinking beer daily and no riding, he almost put a minute into me.
Luckily it's still early in December, time to start training, if the weather co-operates. And now I have some motivation : -)

Oh, and we collected $750 for northwest harvest on the thanksgiving day ride, thanks to all.
