I’m tired of the weather…

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

I woke up in Denver at 23 degrees a week ago Friday.  I woke up in State Collge last Friday with multiple inches of snow on the ground.  Then I worked two days of Cyclocross events this weekend (Granogue and Wissahickon); Saturday the rain never stopped and we waded in mud, today was cold with lots of wind.

I’m really looking forward to the LAF ride in Austin — I’m trusting Austin not to screw up the weather!

Bike for the Heart — First Annual

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Yesterday was the first annual Bike for the Heart ride and Time Trial in downtown Washington DC. This was another well-run event brought to you by g4 Productions.

The only issue with the event is that there could have been a much larger number of cyclists who wanted to take advantage of the totally closed streets of downtown DC. The ride started at the Verizon Center and looped up by the White House and to the north side of the Capital building — lots of lanes, great weather, and some VERY interesting machines.

Great way to get the family out on bikes!

This event and the US Air Force Classic earlier in the year provide great opportunity for all to enjoy totally closed road. Come on out and play in 2010!
