Time to hit the road this weekend for some serious training...
Saturday heading out for the Tour of Smithville Lake. Leaving the nest at 9:30 am to meet The Wheel Cyclery guys at 10:00am. Location: Discover Vision Center, North Oak Trafficway and 152 Hwy (Normal Tuesday night ride location).
Good ride today and a great turnout. Saw some old teammates and guys who brought back some old (and painful memories :-)) It was like a "who's who" of the Northland: Randy Cartwright, Dan Jordan (RAAM Finisher), Ryan Halloran (2x Missouri State Criterium Champion), Curt Shelman (Former KCA President and current Butt'r expert), Jud Milham, Pastor Fred Herron, Eric Tiffany and the ghost of Dave Wathen among others.
Sunday most likely Mark's Gravel Grinder.....Ended up bailing out after a full day on Saturday including a jazz show (In Old New York). I was too tired and opted to sleep in and hit the Smithville trails in the afternoon. Got in one lap with old Buzz before the trails started to get a little muddy.
