More rapid fire posting!

Shabbos ride.

Randell and I are heading out around 12:30 from my place. Probably up to Blair, climb that wicked hill on the North side of town, eat at some restaurant, then head back home. Nice easy ride.
Except for that hill. That's gonna hurt.

Post if you plan on showing up, otherwise we're leaving without ya!!

Rapid fire Posting!!!

Shabbos +1 ride.

Place: Crane Coffee at 78th and Cass.
Time: Leave at 7:30am, be there early to drink the wakey juice.
Terrain: road bikes on road.
Tempo: Mellow with an occasional chance of punchiness.
(edit) Duration: 4-5 hrs if everyone is up for it. If the majority want/need to do less time, we'll adjust accordingly.

DO IT!!!!

You know what's awesome?

Yellowstone Park, family trips, and a good camera.

Man I wish I was in better shape.

Oh, and also not being on call would be nice too.

This Saturday is the Good Life Gravel Adventure around Lincoln, NE. It looks like so much fun. I know Mr. Miles is planning to attend as well as Rafal. Alas, my lack of longer rides recently and forgetting I'm required to be on call on Saturday means I'm out.

Randell and I are cooking up a 4-5 hr ride for Sunday though. It'll probably be on the road and I'd imagine that the GLGA riders might be a tad too sore to join us, which is completely understandable. Meeting time and place will be decided on and posted by the end of the week.

Doh, Shabbos riders are out!

The woman pulled the hubby card, so I gotta be somewhere earlier than we'd get back from the Bacon Ride.

Hope you guys have fun and I look forward to doing a gravel ride with ya'll soon.

3 for Shabbos, do I hear a 4th?

Jonny, Mr. Miles, and I are meeting at the Scooters on 180th and Q to head out for a 2-3 hr ride on Saturday. Meeting time of 7am. Mr. Miles is going to set the tempo for a workout he's doing, but it shouldn't be too crazy to sit in and catch a draft.

So road bikes with some up tempo parts if you're interested.

Just in case you hadn't read it on other blogs..

Sunday's Shabbos +1 will partake in some gravel and bacon. Or just gravel for people who don't eat the flesh of aminal.

6am at Wohlner's on 65th and Center.

70-100 miles depending on which route you take, or what the group decides.

That was the most I've ridden in a while

So with the marriage, a mini-family vacation and such this past month, the 2 rides I did this weekend were quite an accomplishment.

Saturday, Randell, Miles, and I headed Northish with a tailwind for about an hour, then turned around and battled a headwind home. Just a couple hour ride and I was seriously toasted.

On Sunday I joined just a few more people for the Corporate Cycling Challenge. A bunch of us were originally planning to meet up at a coffee shop downtown then ride all together at a medium pace, but that all went up in smoke after the start. The Kaos guys needed to stick with their group, Randell and I were burning off our coffee fixes, and others (such as Rafal, Nick, Noah(sp?)) all were traveling at different speeds. It was a great time anyway. However, I was pretty worthless the rest of the day. My bike still needs a good cleaning after all the wet weather riding. Le sigh...

Pretty soon I'll be posting pics of our family mini vacation and then finally make a blog about my wedding and honeymoon with pics to go along with my long story a couple post ago.

Morning warining

So the forecasters say that the storms of tomorrow will happen in the AM. Stay tuned to the weather before heading over to my place at the booty crack of dawn.

Pre CCC ride.

Jonny, Mr. Miles, and I are meeting at Scooters at 120th and Blondo on Saturday at 8am.

2 hours with Mr. Miles going up the road a few times for structured intervals. We'll catch him on his recovery.

Come one, come all!


A call to arms

So, the Corporate Cycling Clusterfook is on Sunday. More than anything else, this is the event I fear. Aquafina bottles everywhere, aerobars on comfort hybrids, squirrels dodging potholes ... jesus, it's scary.

To properly prepare, we need coffee. Strong coffee. Let's hook up downtown at the Starbucks across the street from the library (where Old Yeller was stolen). 7:15 a.m. Get there sooner if you like (I probably will), and then we'll roll toward the quagmire around 7:40.

So ...
7:15 or earlier
Starbucks by the downtown library.

Wabash Adventure - Repost

So this Sunday I'd like to ride the Wabash from end to end and back. I know a few people have expressed a passing interest, please firm up whether you'll show or not. I'd like to think I'm not the only one crazy enough to do this. The plan is to leave from the Wabash trailhead in Council Bluffs @ 8 AM and head south. It'll be a long day, bring water, food, and money. It will be good times!

Wednesday, the 5th of August

Since we've got a mountain bike race coming up at Tranquility this weekend, I intend to skip the BM group ride Wednesday night and ride Tranquility for 2.5-3 hours to get a good feel for the course and make sure I'm ready to put in a decent showing on Saturday. I am probably going to park @ BM chat till the roadies roll out at 6 PM then cruise down the hill to get in some laps until dark. If anyone wants to join the fun, feel free. May be some hard efforts but mostly just endurance pace riding.

Also, lets not forget about the Wabash Adventure coming up this Sunday. A good group will make the time pass quicker for all.
