Headed back, leaving the US

Well its back to Cebu Philippines, was almost 4 weeks here, managed 185 miles, in weather from 35 degrees F to 71 F. makes it ~2300 for the year

Back in Cebu, its 84-88, feels like 92-95. But I should manage 3K for the year. Frankly speaking, I like a cold sunny day over a hot one.

I am taking my Cervelo back, I got a TT scheduled for Dec 16th. 10 mile, hope to do it in 27 minutes. riding in the mountains is absolutely stunning.
ocean is hard on the Steel lemond, I bought some Frame Saver, but I fear the damage is done.


Gotta say its not the same posting over there, seems like I'm an outsider, but you all made me feel welcome these last few weeks.

Have a safe and happy holidays, cYa in May.

RB.

Hey, we don't know where you're posting from.....you shouldn't feel like an outsider.
