This weekend flew by, I was definitely missing those extra days of vacationland. Luckily there’s a three-day weekend on the way. On Saturday I changed my the shoes on my cross bike from road to off-road and went out for a road/dirt road ride. Fabulous weather out there. My plan was calling for some tempo [...]
And I know I was wrong When I said it was true That it couldn’t be me and be her Inbetween without you Without you Inbetween Days, The Cure The Darkhorse 40 marked the final event on my 2010 cycling calendar. As hard as I’m trying, as of right now I’ve got no official races [...]
