Happy pi day...


Just got back from training camp in Lexington VA. We dropped 12-13 hours of riding in three days. All of it was pretty intense. Friday was a wet 90 mi jaunt in the mounains that put us on the blue ridge parkway for a while. The descent into buena vista was awesome. A bit sketchy but there is something about bombing downhill at 45+mph in the rain. It made the climb up Vesuvius worth it.

It was a shame that is was cloudy most of the time we were there as the area has some awesome views. Below are a few pix of the hills surrounding our weekend home base.


But the sun did come out for a little while on Sunday morning. Lovely.

JT, that is how it all began. I honestly miss the days of slogging away for 3 hours into a headwind to have a glorious 2 hour tailwind return trip. Hope thing in CU are going well, say hi to the IBRC peeps and your dad for me.

cycling is such a landscape-aware sport. I can say a dozen things about the Sublime, Picturesque, Horizon, Deep Space, and Nature in regards to those photographs. In other words, I need to drop these Landscape Theory books RIGHT NOW and hit the roads on bike.
