My biking efforts this year gave way to my skiing efforts. But the time has come, and I think I'm ready to start spinning pedals in earnest. Given a choice, I think I would prefer to . . . I guess I better not go there.
Last year, I had several races under my spandex by this time of year. This year, I've done a couple RMRs and a couple DMVs and, as evidenced below, a mountain bike race. I flatted out of a DMV and the mtb race.

No road races yet. But, I just registered for the High Uintas Classic, a stage race no less. I debated registering for the Masters 35 division, which I qualify for as of this year, but that depressed me because I have always looked up to those guys . . . as being old. I also debated registering for the one-day only race because staying in Evanston is not exactly a vacation destinaion, but I really really like the Evanston downtown crit. I think I'll still sleep in my own bed, and if my allergies don't get the best of me, I'll plan on being at the crit. I should see if my TT bike still exists.
I figure if I'm going to ever jump in to the bike mix, I'd better do it soon and better do it head first. I really really hope that I don't suck too much.
