Pushed it a bit yesterday in an attempt at reaching my goal of riding 800 miles. Would you believe that I missed the goal by one lousy mile?? I could have done at least one more mile, had I known. Well, 64 miles is still pretty good, considering... Read more

It just feels great to get out there and cycle for long periods of time. Yesterday we did 41 and today we should go over 50. Why? Cause today I can and perhaps tomorrow not. Don't want to be one of those that says: could have...would Read more

Drove 7+ hours to Lawton Ok, in preparation for Saturday's Hotter than Hell 100. Decided that after all that driving, I would take the day off from riding the bike. The nutrition was not that great due to my over-indulgence in pizza for dinner. ... Read more
