    Sucks for the 4th guy.

    Luckily this was on a climb so I had plenty of time to stop. I'd hate to run over a snake.

    I'm really wanting to sell 2 bikes that I never ride and my everyday frame to buy the new F8 frame. Someone talk sense into me!

    if you're bored, check out the most recent USAC membership survey.

    https://s3.amazonaws.com/USACWeb/for...vey-Report.pdf

    near the bottom they dumped the free-form feedback of thousands of racers, including gems like this:

    please make pots of hamburger helper ready to be served at every signups. it is yummy
    I can't imagine they can do much with all of that feedback, but some of it is entertaining to read.

    Wow. Sorry to hear. I hope you can get it cleared up or at least mitigated to some extent.

But Leonard is impressive. Out of all the player's I saw through the playoffs he was becoming my favorite to watch. If he keeps his nose clean he could be a really huge name with the amount of natural talent he seems to have.

    Need to start eating better and setting a better (and smart) training schedule for myself. Just for my own enjoyment. I don't like pushing the stretch limits of my cycling event t-shirts (which is basically my summer wardrobe). And I would much rather ride faster than slower.

    Fyi, if you leave Nutella type products in the car on a hot day, you can drink it directly from the container. No spoon required.

    In terms of demographics, the overall USA Cycling membership is dominated by male (85.3%), master age (63.7%), road cyclists (65.9%).

    Where I live, that doesn't seem to be reflected in race participation. Master's races are usually smaller than others down here, even when combined (M40+ and M55+). That could be easily explained, I'm sure; for instance, RA isn't shown in other than Master's results, so a bunch could be racing in their cat rather than master's.

    Guy on Saturday showed up with one. I get it if its your thing but don't know if I'd fork over $5700 for it (don't think I'd pay that for any frame, but especially not that)

    They put mid-atlantic in the MidWest it appears? Interesting.

    I also enjoyed:

    "Maybe take the injured a little further away rather than just leave them right next to the road for everyone to see."

    So, funny story.

    There have been on and off efforts over the last few years to start a velodrome project in the Boston area. It's never really gotten off the ground, primarily because of an excess of ambition - everyone always wants to shoot for the moon and go for an indoor velodrome. Securing the land for and building an outdoor track is challenging enough, especially in a city like this, to the point that I've been joking for the last few years that the easiest way to get an indoor velodrome in Boston would be to host an Olympic Games. Which was just a stupid joke, but now Boston is one of four USOC finalists for a potential U.S. bid for the 2024 Olympics. Just... what!? Obviously it's a long shot from that to actually hosting, but it would be truly bizarre if that came true.

    If there's one guy who could get that done in Boston, it's Menino, but he is out if the picture now. We shall see.

    Regarding the USAC survey comments, I was surprised at the number of negative experiences with officials in the Northeast and New England regions.

    2024 is a long way away. A velodrome built then will cease to be relevant for the vast majority of those championing those projects.

    I swear if I win the lottery I'm building one. But only ex and I are using it.

    Cipro - Any Negative Effects when Taken during Training?

    So I'm getting a bladder scope today by my trusty urologist. I've been given about five days' worth of Cipro to take as a precaution. I've got at least one hard workout while I'll be taking the Cipro. Any problem that might come up?

    Likewise, but I'm starting to come to grips with a track focused 2015.

    That metric surprised me as well. I thought refs were the least controversial of the USAC value prop.

    Was this true in your region as well? I didn't read through them all.
