How'd next weekend's 1000k sneak up on me like that?
So, this coming weekend I'm heading off for the Appalachian Double Cross 1000k. I've been really busy and it totally snuck right up on me. I'm feeling kinda out of shape, actually. Well, all things are relative. But yeah, my longest ride this year was the Fleche, way back in the spring.
I was feeling kind of out of shape for it last year and I had a fine ride, so that's my consolation.
At least this year I'll have company, but that means I'll feel more guilty about being slow. But on the other hand, the field is twice as big as last year so at least I'll have company, and said company will also be riding a fixed gear. And I lost a few hours last year to navigational difficulties, so hopefully I can avoid those this year and have a bit more of a time buffer.
So, err.... anyone got nothing to do next weekend and want to come on a 1000k? There's plenty of space left (there are only two people signed up) and it is a very scenic ride. Fixed gear not required.
