I am pretty sure that every rider who knows me likes riding with me. Presumptuous you say? The truth of the matter is that there are few people on a bike who are 200+ pounds. Its not that I am slow or have a complex or any of that mess. I am just a huge rider. At least once every ride I catch a "look at those tree trunk legs" or someone conviently lets me slip in front of them during the paceline shuffle. So my new years resolution is to stop drinking sugary soda. The main culprit is touted as an energy drink and can too often be found in my hand. At $2.50 a can (from 7-11) I figure I'll be ahead at least $100 a month. My friends actually ask myself if I have throttled myself yet (today) considering I always drink this crap. Good job with marketing Coke Co, but you will no longer see me enjoying your super energy mainstay:
On a very good note, I managed to pull myself out of bed at 645 this morning and met the hilltop contes peeps for a quick 75. Beatiful day, beautiful ride. I seriously can think of no better way to ring in the new year than to get in a ride on a beautiful day. Wick broke his cleat so we missed the last of the ride. Still epic.
Doping in cycling? Not in 757! or eh, what?
