winds are finally calm

After almost 2 weeks of 15+mph winds, last couple of days have been a nice break. the riding has been so much easier w/o pushing a monster headwind, also a lot easier riding the road bike! since it's technically a rest wk, i've ditched the drag suit for some skinny tires and the legs are thanking me in a big way. but man, it's hard to take it easy. after an easy day or two there's so much energy, it's hard to hold-back, but, saturday's planned ride is a good reason to rest a bit! we've got a good posse for this one - Rob Follansbee, Andy Sanidas, Brad Beveridge, John Hurley and myself. A bunch of mtbikers pushing road bikes around. I take that back, Hurley's actually a trials guy who converted to the road early last season - loves those crit races, jumping curbs, freaking dudes out. Whatever works! glad to have him along. with 5 riders a' pullin', we should break 8 hours for the 130mile trek from Medford to the summit of Wachusetts and back, which is super-key as jenn's bro is picking me up at 4pm to head to NH for carole anne's (their sister) b-day. i'm sure we'll get our johnny on. that's a solid recovery drink. In all seriousness, though, after last wknd's debauchery, i'm taking it easy for a while, really focusing on the training, recovery and whatnot. Doesn't mean i can't have a few pops, but no reason to get all freaky.

I hear you. Let the pro go on the wagon. What the point if you can't have a couple bevies now and then?

What are you thoughts on that 24 Hours of Cutler?
I'm REALLY leaning towards that race instead of Granny Gear's Big Bear. Save myself $245 in coinage.
Looked at last years turnout, kinda low, but they got some new sponsors so maybe they'll boost it.

Enjoy that ride, Looks boss.

do the numbers 1 - 7 designate "puke spots" along the route?
