Is thing on???

Spit, sputter, cough, BANG!!

This thing still runs? Shit. Going to try and make a run at the blogitty thingy again. Last post was about… yeah who gives a turkey. This weekend bring us to the longest gravel bike race. It takes place in Iowa. Yep ya read it right IOWA. It’s kinda down right riduclus when ya get right down to it. 322 some miles on gravel and dirt roads transversing the state. Iowa flat? No not one bit. Never ending hills for a hell of a long time.

This year the nice fella over at Mountain Bike Radio will be hosting live race updates. Another cool feature will be us riders can call in and leave messages on the site for you to listen to during the event. If ya want some late night entertainment stay up and listen to the riders call in during the wee hours of the morning after riding for over 24 hours with no sleep. Now I may call in and check in and I might not .

I would go into my bike setup for this event but it’s nothing speical. My Giant TCX from Cycle Works will do the trick. 100ozs of water and a shit ton of sugar laden calories with a load a caffinne pills and gels should keep my rolling. Oh yeah how can I forget the little “creature” that sits on my right shoulder during the night. Never says a damn thing but I keep checking to see if he/she is there.

It sure feels good to write again this is really good. I must keep this thing up and running. Its good for my mind. When I started this I said I would keep the content interseting for the reader. Maybe all my posts don’t have to be about cycling. Thats something to work on.
