    Thanks for the offer
    I have a 2nd bike at home which is pretty much a carbon everything and mounting my daughters one wheeler to a carbon seat post is concerning to say the least.

    And my wife is going to fly to Mexico City tomorrow because her aunt passed away, so I have kids duty throughout the whole long weekend.

    I guess I'm going to make the best of it and start throwing some balls with me kiddios.

    Sorry to hear about your wife's loss. Have fun with the kids.

    Now I'm off to enjoy the Alpine Slides with my little one.

    9/1 F'n holiday delays my stem delivery.. result: Bike still broken
    9/2 No commute since the stem doesn't arrive until noon and I'm at work. No Tuesday night races either. Parent - Teacher conference. F#$@!!!
    9/3 If I'm lucky I get to commute with my new stem on my bike

    My Madone is rideable, but I can't hitch the one wheeler onto the carbon seat post. Well, I can, but I don't want to risk it. My daughter is far to precious to have her face smashed because of a snapped seat post.

    Why would you ride 26 miles wearing an old dress with a grey wig and spectacles?

    Gary, i may have some motivation for you. with two days to go this month i think i have a 20ish mile lead on you for BFNIC bikewire.net supremacy (or something like that)

    later.

    A couple of weekend rides and I should get to the 500 mile mark for August.

    That would be quite satisfying after barely cracking 300 miles in July. August is usually the giant lull where everything falls apart and hardly any riding gets done by me.

    Oh, did I ride today? Nah. But I did wash my bike, so it should rain in buckets any time now.

    8/29 - 37.38 miles at a good average speed of 18, not bad for a noob, hehe.

    All of this has caused me a sudden pain or "pinch" pain on my left elbow as i put my hand on the drop or on the hood...any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Right around 40-ish miles with the Village Pedaler group. They've been changing up routes and playing with an A/B group deal for a while now I guess. Tons of people and groups out on the roads. Rode with another group for a while.

    Good ride. Some true hauling ass matched with some crawling to bring the last guy in. I like that sometimes.

    Did 40 miles today in Columbus..... when north on the Olentangy Bike Path (bad mistake with the first OSU game going on today), made it up to 161, over to High, up to Worthington/Galena or something to Schrock out Westerville.

    Made my way to Sunbury, down to Morse, to Cherry Bottom Rd, to US62, Johnstown, Cassady, then Broad back to the Scioto then Olentangy Bike Path.

    All before breakfast!!! WOOT!

    A blast! Good pacing, felt great, traffic was okay. Some head winds, tail winds, etc..... a great mix of everything all in all.

    8/29 Hot and sweaty, rode past Penny Road Pub yesterday and started thinking about a cold one. Checked the time. Oh yeah, it's 7:30...AM...and I still have 15 miles to go...to work...in rush hour traffic. Good thing they weren't open yet, so I didn't have to make a decision.

    30/30 split am/pm, 60 for the day. On the way home stopped at MT Barrels for a pint of Weiss-carbs.
    Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?

    8/30 = Yes

    37 miles with the Endure IT Sports group. they have two rides that start near me, an A and a B. i rolled over to where i thought the A group was starting only to find one car in the lot with a mtb on its rack?? so, i quickly made my way to the B group starting point to find 20 plus riders gearing up.

    the group quickly split into 3 groups. i rode at the front with 7 others. these 7 could likely ride all day at a consistent pace, but didnt seem to be big fans of sudden accelerations & efforts. no one really attacks or sprints out, well, exact for me . took off just at the base of the "hilly" section of the route. put a nice little gap into the group before sitting up and then getting gobbled up by the Tri Train.

    i ended at 21 mph for the 37 miles and felt good. i cant help think if the B group goes at 21 mph then what the heck does the A group do? if i can find them next weekend i will let you know . later.

    I notched 42.4 miles this morning riding from home over to Barrington Hills and back. Legs still feeling sluggish, but it felt good to get out there.

    I knocked over the 500 mile mark for August, as well. Not half bad.... and there's still another day of August to go!

    well... crap. i'm kind of tired.

    8/30 - 80 miles. Southport to Noblesville to watch a cross country race and then back to Southport. Did take the break in between, but for some reason I wasn't thinking and I ran around the course cheering on kids before heading back for another 40.

    30 miles in a new loop from west Ann Arbor, out north of Dexter, then swinging back east across the top of the city, then straight south to home. Rolling hills everywhere, farmland, some road shoulders were super and others were rougher than heck! and my tires were pumped too hard, ouch.

    average about 14 mph, bit faster than normal for me. I was trying to stay in Zones 1 and 2.

    8/30 - 15.49 miles
    I cruised easily up to the Westlake criterium course, cruised another lap, then lit the throttle for a lap. The results?
    I beat my previous best time and 4 minute power. And by "beat" I mean blew it out of the water.

    I'm racing in Windsor, Ontario tomorrow, and I get to be a pro because I finally wrote down all of my interval powers down on paper and taped it to my top tube. I overshot all the powers by 15-25 watts so I could accomodate for race-day adrennaline, and for psyching out other racers who happen to sneak a peek at my bike.

    I might race on Monday, assuming I could find a decent race to do.
