9 days in a row!

no complaints today!
it was the 5th consecutive day i rode outside and the 9th day i'd ridden in a row!
warm temps melted-off a lot of our valley snowpack, but left us with amazing dirt road and snowmobile trail riding (below 1500 feet).
feeling like a bike racer again, at least a mtnbike racer, not sure what it takes to feel like a roadie.
but, talking 'bout being a roadie, just got into the Battenkill masters 30+.
that should thoroughly kick my ass.


my road bike (lemond carbon/steel) group is shot, drivetrain shot, 5+yrs of hard use. can't decide between shimano and sram... any inputs from cyberspace?

i leave my office driveway, head west and within a mile am climbing roxbury gap:

riding at dusk can get a bit brisk, but great views help the chill.
these days, 20 degrees feels balmy.

Ah, too bad you won't be doing Battenkill with me and Sanidas in the Cat 4 White Group(it is kind of messed up how they separate the Cat 4s by race). That's what you get for being so f-in fast ya bastid.

cat 4, masters 30 plus, why can't we just go ride our bikes as a big group? who needs all this separation anyway?
BTW, judging by the amount of riding I've been getting lately...is there a cat 7 group I can get in?
