DID brought up in another post the loss of banter and comradery in the Journal. Let's use this thread for you to give an update to the community. It doesn't have to be daily but when you feel like you have something to say but it doesn't fit elsewhere. If it fails, well we tried!

Getting out of Florida just turns you into a climbing fiend, doesn't it?

I'll be on the Birmingham Bicycle Club ride the day before. They have a new 200k route that I'll be trying to make the time cuts for.

Number 3 son Brandon got into bike racing when he moved to Austin in 2014. He has become very good at it and is captain of his team, Tilt Racing. One of the sponsors is Mellow Johnny's, which is affiliated (or was), with Lance Armstrong. One of his better stories is the team was about to go on a Friday recovery ride the day after a race when Lance approached them.

"What are you guys up to?" he asked.

"A 30 mile recovery ride." said one of the gang.

"Mind if I join you?" Lance responded.

A definite bucket list cross off for any serious biker.

They wouldn't let me, as I usually do, ride in the middle of the criterium to video, so I had to stand around taking stills and trying to video bikes passing by me at 28-30 mph. I suppose that if I were riding, I would do the same as they passed me doing 28-30 MPH

Took a 1000 mile round trip to ride a trike 40 miles. From home to Columbus Ohio, then Marion, Ohio. I rode the Tall Grass trail with about 25 other folks. Hot day. Cramped really badly. That's the first time in awhile, that has happened. Really nice trail, in a very rural area. We got of the trail for about 12 miles and rode to lunch in a small country store. The roads were amazingly quiet. Although there was enough, fresh chipseal, that was like riding in sand. Long drive but totally worth it, in smile factor. The sag rider Tom, kept me company and entertained for the last 18 miles. Lots of stops to clear my cramping legs. I just had not spent enough time on this trike. This has not been a good year for cycling. I'm not used to be the last guy, that isn't the sag rider.

I'm not sure of your meaning in the post. I was joshing about riding in the criterium while filming. On this team, my son Brandon invites riders to join. For a few it's been sort of a minor league to becoming pro. One of his recruits recently won the junior national championship.

I wouldn't be the worse choice however. There is at least on person with a resume that makes mine look not so bad.

Lance is (was) the owner of the shop.
