Coffee Day

I was planning on getting out for a few hours this morning on the road bike thinking that the trails were going to be wet. The rain this morning though is keeping me in since I have been a little under the weather. In turn this leaves me with a morning filled with coffee drinking and catching up with some other items.
While on the computer I came across some pictures from this past years Mora Vasaloppet. These pictures were taken from my wife's sister in-law. Don't worry, I don't have skiing on the brain.


Thanks Rachel.

Time to go hit the weights now.

New ride

Last night I was able to take my new Cannondale Factory Racing team bike out for a quick spin. The bike of choice for 24 hour competitions this year is the Scalpel.
So far it feels great and the Sram XX has a super smooth feel. More to come after I get some time off road with it.

I will catch up with this blog someday here soon. Lots of fun stuff going on in the bike world. Life has been just a little hectic lately. Busy in a good way though.

Hope everyone is having a great earth day with this beautiful weather.

It's Go Time!

I am sitting here this morning after another quick night it seems like. Getting through the regular morning routine of drinking coffee, getting the bike ready, and looking ahead of what is in store for the rest of the day. The only thing that differs is that I am looking at a map instead of just so called wing-ing it; destination- Elk River, MN.
The wind is brutal this morning in a not so pleasant direction with a little bite to the air to remind us that it is still the beginning of April. Plan on leaving at 8am to make it be 5hrs to Elk River. (I am taking the round about way there.)
