Summer Heat, Katrina Week
Lost horizon on the lakefront. Late August is always tough around here. It goes without saying that it's hot and humid most of the time, and there always seem to be a bunch of big expenses to drain what little funds are in the bank account. Just to add to t...

Visitor Cyclists
The Tuesday morning ride heads out on Lakeshore Drive in New Orleans As the contact email for the NOBC and LAMBRA websites, among others, I get my share of emails and messages asking about riding in New Orleans.  Many of those come from visitors who are com...

Rapides
At 4:15 am I headed up to Alexandria, LA for the Rapides Road Race on Saturday with fairly low expectations. Pre-registration numbers had been extremely low for this one-day, mid-July event.  The race distances were pretty low -- the Masters race, for which...

As I Watched It - Tour de Gulfport
"What the F*@#??" I'm pretty sure I said that out loud as I glanced down to see my left foot flailing in the air, suddenly unattached to the pedal. It was the start of the Tour de Gulfport criterium . I'd gotten in a decent enough warm-up, was adequately hy...

Summer Cold
May 28 Morning Ride group      For a while I refused to believe it. That scratchy throat feeling slowly poking its way into my consciousness on a Monday afternoon at work couldn't actually be a summer cold. I tried to ignore it, but by late evening there wa...

Return to Routine and Unfortunate U-Turns
The only thing that has been routine for the past couple of weeks has been the riding.  In fact, it's been routine enough to qualify as dull, but at least I'm starting to feel like I have a reasonable base again. The weather has been, in general, pretty nic...

Protocol
Mid-summer mornings in New Orleans can be a lot of things, but windy is not usually one of them. For the past week or more we've been under this big high-pressure system that's made for some uncomfortably hot weather, punctuated only by a few short but dram...

Acadiana Action
Last weekend I headed over to Lafayette for the annual Vuelta d' Acadiana . This year they had dispensed with the Saturday morning time trial, and with the Masters criterium not scheduled until after 4 pm, I was spared the usual pre-dawn rush. Of course, ha...

Bonts and Breaks
I was a little surprised today when I checked Strava and realized that I'd logged four weeks of riding without a single missed day and between 240 and 280 miles per week. It was only during the past week that I started to feel good on the bike again, so alt...
