    Back in the saddle...

    Well, I had a really hecktic year in '06 and only got in a couple decent rides. For those who know us my wife had our daughter on July 17th, just one month after we bought our first house. I also changed jobs...twice, both for the better. Having a kid is great and I'm looking into getting a child cart for my bike now that things have settled down and warmed up. I got in my second ride this morning and living in Castle Rock gives me access to some nice rides. I can definately feel the time off the bike, mainly on the huge climb back to my house. Getting Pneumonia a few weeks ago really made things tuff but I made the 15 mile loop...without dying...which I thought I was gonna do a couple times. Hopefully after I can get a few more core building rides in, I would love to meet up with some of the Colorado crew and spin of a nice 40-50 miler.

    Later folks.

    Castle Rock? Man, that's.......not....close.

    Nice to meet you Bobby, We have a pretty good group of local riders this season. Some of us have already been out together a couple times. You'll have to watch our regional forum and jump in when you can. Good to have you aboard.

    Yeah, just don't let ME plan the ride. Ask Snowy and DataJunkie.

    Hey snowy! The last time I saw you, it was right after you had finished your first centry ride...feels like ages ago. I definately need to get a ride in with a group sometime. Riding by myself causes me to ride way to hard and I blow my self up very early, I had to remove my cyclometer to keep me from pushing it to hard. I need people who know what the word 'Pace' means LOL.

    I have that problem as well. My advice would be to purchase a heart rate monitor. Maybe a $50-$75 polar model with heart rate zones. Now when I hit the high end of my hear rate zone and it starts beeping at me I lay off a bit. It also helps with training. Anerobic, aerobic, and all that. My 2 cents

    Yeah, BC plans an early season death ride, everyone shows up and then whines about how sore they are. I plan a early season, mellow (but strenuous ride ) and no body shows...except the death ride guy...'tain't fair, I tell ya. 'tain't fair at all.

    I wasn't whining And the ride its self wasn't hard. Just took LONGER then I planned and Snowy has things to do.

    This weekend I'm riding mountain bike with girlfriend one day and the other day I'll be riding my bike solo.

    I was sore half of Monday. Heck, I've ridden almost 120 miles yesterday and today. Well...120 miles after I get home tonight.
    Stinking hills after Morrison! <- my only complaint.
    Besides.... my pedals self destructed before cyco's first attempt and I developed a memory lapse during the second one and headed to the zoo instead.
