TT suffering. Hard to really see anything in this picture, but I thought it was kind of scenic, and it's my first race as a 3. (I totally lost.)

she's 5 foot and like 1.567867 inches (she can quote it to the third decimal. Funny how precise short people are )

Yeah she's a lot smaller than me to put things in simple terms.

don't hate on that strava (actually i like being able to stay in contact with the 4 people i talk to on it).

Tufts, so it's an 8 hour train ride, and i'll force her to take it for the first two months before she starts non-stop swimming, then i'm stuck taking the train every time. We made an agreement to test it out, and if it doesn't work out, we always have post-college life to get back together if we want to.

Buy everything on a travel rewards credit card and use it to buy plane tickets. Trains aren't cheap either man.

Looks like a sweet track.

But:

a) is the rail made of barb wire?!

and

b) is it built in some dude's backyard?

Reminds me of homemade half-pipes from back in the day.

Nice pic great position. Finally you guys get to ride on the velodrome after all the bad weather. Looks like a great day.

okay so now there's a flaw in my train plan...


the velodrome's rail is not made of barbed wire, but it is in a really bad part of town. We have a running game of count the "zombie" (zombie is a nickname for the local meth addicts). We have had a number of break ins, with the most recent one resulting in a fire.

Hermes: that bike actually isn't mine, it's just a rental bike that i have since taken as my own (actually the president of the board gave it to me when i started my project with the track. I don't know if i have to give it back just yet )
