Thanks for the info snowy. I now have a few things to look at on fitday. That or I could hire a personal trainer if I ever have time.

Anyhow, I am out for the next 2 weeks. My grandfather passed away today and I am heading to Washington State with my mother to be with the family. That is the actual reason I was not chatty last Saturday not "I couldn't hear". See y'all the next time.
It was a blast last Saturday.

Data,
Wow I'm very sorry about your loss. I always enjoyed riding with your even if your chatty or not

Take Care and hopefully we can get together soon for a ride

At least I am visiting family members I have not seen for a couple years. One can find a silver lining in anything if you look hard enough.

Finally back in town and at work.
The real reason that I posted was to relate the fact that my wife purchased a Garmin Edge 305 with HRM and Cadence to make me feel better.
Cool beans! Now I have to figure out how to use it....

Meh... you don't need all those complicated technical doodads. Just ride.

(Oh, and feel free to give it to me, so you won't have to deal with it! )

Cool! I have one too - Get SportTracks, it's better then the Training Center software.

Don't forget to look up from your computer once in a while and look at the real world

I try to wander aimlessly but I know every damned road on the Front Range. Hard to get lost that way. And I seem to have a compass implanted in my head. I never get lost...even in new locations.

I even get people asking me directions in places I've never been to...and the bad part is I can usually give them Like the trucker who stopped me in the middle of nowhere, WA and asked where the wind farm was. I'd never been there before but I was able to get him to his destination anyway.

I'm tellin' ya, I can't get lost! It's a curse.

As a teenager I could occasionally manage to get lost in my hometown of 30K people. Keep in mind this is a relatively small town planned by the government on a simple grid. However, I was not .... how shall we saw.... sober. Bad DJ had drug issues as a youngin.

I used to drive city delivery and got lost in Denver once. After figuring out where I was, I swore that I would never be lost again (see Scarlet O'hara's great speech half way through Gone With the Wind) I haven't been lost since.

And, oddly, people have been asking me directions since then, too. It's like I go "INFORMATION" tattooed on my forehead.

Eventually, I would like to hook up on a ride (or at least part of one) with some of the local BFers and put faces to avatars, but this weekend is out and I'm out of town the following two weekends. Maybe when I get back.

There's a group meeting at Echo Lake at 8 AM to ride Mt. Evans, if you're interested in joining us.

Club Hypoxia is a great group. You won't regret it if you show up.
They're picking me up and hauling my tank up to the start so I don't have to start out at 4 AM to try to make it.

Crud. Can't make it.
Someday I swear!
I need to stay closer to town Saturday.
Going to take a short ride up lookout.

It looks like RMCC is doing the same ride as y'all. That is if I read their website correctly.

Meh. RMCC is doing the REAL ride. Not like us. RMCC is starting from Bergen Park. On a positive note, if there's any bad weather to be had, they'll get it, and not us.

Club Hypoxia has some pretty great rides planned for Labor day weekend (Including Mt. Evans again!), if anyone is interested.

Snowy!!!! COME RIDE WITH US!
