whee! road clinic and bike wanted

March 24, 2007 · Print This Article

3 hours just isn’t enough. It is enough to get started though.

We went over water bottle drills–pick up the water bottle standing on the ground and put it down again.. and cornering. Baba told many tales of racing, with emphasis on dictating the pace for the peloton– it was all well and good and informative and cool, but… dammit.. what about just staying in the peloton….

that would be a victory for this webdork.

Tuesday night clinics will be starting in April… and we gots pacelines and riding leaning on each other to go over. Having done both these skillz on the track, it’s WICKED good fun. The more the merrier. So, bellas, come on out.

And if anyone has a 52-54cm older road frame or a track frame… I’m in the market. My current commuter fixed gear is far too small. I can’t do more than 15 miles/day without my back screaming at me. So… new (to me) bike time… Drop me a comment if you know of one.

    Hi Manda,
    I could post a blog, but that means I would have to remember what you told me…

    Anyway, I just got in from a ride and made myself 2 sandwiches. As I’m making them, I realized that about this time of year, I start craving mayonaise. I slather it on a la “Undercover Brother.” Gad I love the stuff, but only when I am riding hard. The other food I’ve started to crave is spaghetti sauce. OK, I’ve finished my food and my mayo cravings are settled down until next time.

    2 sandwiches? 2? Mayo?? Now, Barb, didn’t we just have a talk about eating naughty?

    (Psst, I had a whole wheat bagel with almond butter on one side – and Nutella (Naughtella) on the other. Naughty!)

Got something to say?
