That adds up to 60 miles on the dirt this week. I need to get more time in the saddle as the race is coming up in a little more than a month. Days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer, so more time should not be a problem. ... Read more

It is that time again to start riding more, and eating better. Now that the days are a little longer, that should help. Honestly, I don't want to start working on the hill climbing again, that hurts during the first couple of weeks. I have b... Read more

It is so much easier with fresh legs. My Brother in law, my son, and I rode the race course and it was so enjoyable. Not like the last time I rode it during the race. We had a great time and it motivated me to start preparing for the June rac... Read more
63 miles on dirt + 7700 feet of elevation = Tired Legs
Sunday, January 23, 2011      1 comments

Well it is recovery time now. The race went well and competition was tight in the Clydesdale division, for riders over 200 lbs. Most riders in my division rode 7 laps, I think the winner had 8 laps. I rode 7 laps, or 63 miles, and climbed 7... Read more
Tomorrow is the big day

All day long at work today I kept looking at the clock and thinking,"How will I feel at this time tomorrow while riding in the 12 Hours of Temecula race. Even now I'm thinking," At this time tomorrow I'll be putting on my lights for the night l... Read more
New bike rides great!
Saturday, January 15, 2011      1 comments

Now that I have a backup bike for the race, I just need to figure out how to pace myself for 12 hours. I am not worried about my legs and lungs. I mean, I know that I will get tired, but recovery time is pretty good right now. I am mainly wor... Read more
Built a new bike today!
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      1 comments

So, in preparation for the race, and because my son is now 6'4", I have built a new bike. It is a Turner 5 Spot and should work well as an alternate bike for the race in 2 weeks. I figure if I get too sore on my Turner Sultan, then I will swit... Read more
12 Hours of Temecula... Solo
Friday, January 07, 2011      2 comments

Yes, due to some lapse of reason I am riding in the 12 Hours of Temecula... solo. My thoughts are to just find a pace that I can sustain for 12 hours. The course is 10.5 miles long and I hope to get at least 8 laps during that time. We'll... Read more

Glad we didn't race, but we did have a great time.
Thursday, September 23, 2010      0 comments

I'm glad we didn't race. We had a good ride on the morning of the race, 45 miles, 4300 feet in elevation. In the afternoon we went to the race venue and were very disappointed at what we saw. There were no vendors at the event, even though in... Read more
Since we're not racing...

Since my team is not racing this year, we are going to do something totally different, an epic ride in our own backyards. We will be riding 50 miles connecting all the areas we usually ride in. We did the 30 mile version 2 weeks ago and it abo... Read more
Gained weight while I was being lazy over the last 3 weeks
Saturday, September 04, 2010      1 comments

I gained 6 pounds over the last 3 weeks by not riding, and not caring what I eat. That is going to change! I rode Thursday, 19 miles, and today, 30 miles, and I will only eat when hungry and keep an eye on my portions. I still have the goal o... Read more

This past 3 weeks I have hit a wall. My biking team is not doing the 24 hour race this fall, and I lost my goal that I started with to lose some weight and get faster on the bike. I NEED A NEW GOAL!... Read more
