Weekend Riding
Charlie and Dan heading out for the Giro Ride It was kind of a slow weekend in some ways; a little lull between last week's stage race and next weekend's races up in Jackson. Somehow, even the Tour de France's   dénouement, most of which I never got to see,...

Rocky Mount
The Rocky Mount Stage Race up in Shreveport, LA, has always been a fun race despite the 5-hour drive from New Orleans. I went up last weekend with Ben Spain and Quentin Boose, trading the New Orleans rain for the Shreveport heat. We made pretty good time on...

One Too Many

Hot Time, Summer in the South
This time of year my Bianchi presents a problem that only short people can truly appreciate. With the advent of carbon frames and sloping top tubes came a whole new problem. With a normal water bottle cage there's not enough room to use anything except a sm...

Tuesday Mornings

Summer Weekend
All the ingredients were present this weekend.  Heat, humidity, and of course, rain.  With the days getting longer and longer, lights were hardly an afterthought as I rode out to the Giro Ride on Saturday. The weather forecasts this time of year are mostly ...

Draggin' and Drippin'
The past couple of days have been pretty impressive, judging by the heat index, but they've been pretty unimpressive, judging by my legs. Wednesday's WeMoRi wasn't particularly fast, but I still felt dragged-out by the time I got back home. I have to assume...

A Wednesday Morning
It's 5:25 am.  The outside of the bedroom window is completely obscured with condensation. Summer humidity.  90-year-old windows.  I don't bother to look outside, nor do I check the thermometer. I already know it will be hot and humid. I sit on the edge of ...

Low Pressure
Last night we had some magnificant lightning and rain as a line of storms streaked through at about 40 mph, so I wasn't quite sure what the morning would hold. Creaking out of bed a mere fifteen minutes before meet-up time for the morning ride I glanced out...

Not So Easy
I woke up this morning feeling stiff and creaky and achy, a situation that seems to be getting more and more frequent as my ear hair gets longer and my telomeres shorter. Right off the bat I decided I'd try and take it easy on the Thursday group ride out on...

Criterium Criteria
It's kind of nice to see a few more one-day Criteriums around here. For a while, it seemed like every weekend was either a stage race or an omnium, and although they invariably included criteriums, it isn't quite the same when there's that "overall" weekend...

On to Summer
The heat and humidity really seem to have moved in this week, so it's feeling a lot like summer around here. Following the Tour de La, I skipped riding on Monday and got most of the post-event stuff taken care of, so by Wednesday everything was closed out. ...
