Beautiful day!
Black Hawk Creek....
Cody + Kelsey....
My Sweetie....

I headed out to Hudson yesterday morning and averaged 10.1 mph for my efforts. Godddd!!! 25-30 mph headwind dead out of the south. Met Kerkove on his Six-13 on my way back, just south of Waterloo. At that point I was doing 25mph with the tailwind and stopped for a minute to talk to him. Said he was out working on his tan. Sounds like he had a pretty good sufferfest going on. He and Jackal are getting ready for next weekend's Ouachita Challenge down in Arkansas. Good luck guys!

At least it was in the 70s. Beautiful day!

The Colnago comes off the trainer this week and hits the road. It's gotta happen!

Jackal went out and did the New Hartford loop on his Six-13 at about the same time. Whoaaaaa! He said he had the same kind of averages into the wind as I had. (more hills out that way!) It was killer. He met Super Saul out on 27th when he was returning to town. Like Kerkove said.... In the midwest, the wind is our mountains.

Went to lunch with Jackal and Moo along with Baby Rhea. Lot's of cyclists out and about downtown but not so many out in the country. I wonder why?

Watched Milan-San Remo on the tube then watched Valentino school the field at Jerez. A pretty good Sunday. My gophers are done with the NCAA hockey tournament after a defeat to the UND Fighting Sioux yesterday. Go Black Bears!!!!

That's it for now.

Ride safe.

Peace out, yo!

Glad to see Blue giving love to the Black Bears! Being a "Mainer" by birth U-Maine hockey is the one "stick and ball" type sport that Maine has done well with.

Go Bears!

On the riding front we didn't see temps like you guys did but still warm enough to expose at least a bit of flesh on a ride. I've got to say I'll take the pain of hills over the pain and frustration of wind! 25+mph headwind! Yikes-

Keep those wheel's turning!
