Bad Numbers


Its quite a bit colder than yesterday. And I knew that was going to happen. I should have rode yesterday but Mondays are a busy day in a bike store. Its re grouping from the weekend. Lot of ordering stuff and lining up service bikes.

I also had a doc appt and it was not all good. Nothing extreme but just more weight related issues. For the first time I’m on medication. I don’t like that. One would think that at some point I would say enough and do what I need to do to lose the weight. I might just be there now. I can reverse all the bad numbers I got yesterday. Im just glad I still can do that. And I understand there is a point of 20140422_083450[1]no return. Duty now for the future.

Im also going to talk a little about the upcoming weekend.

The Cheesehead Roubaix is Sunday. Its just a local ride put on by a nice guy for free. Unsupported. Its a blast. I did it last year. But Im thinking of skipping it this year.

John ( the organizer) has put a lot of time into this ride by himself. And all of us thank him for sure. But I think there’s a chance that this has kinda got away from him. Just a little. I mean no disrespect but this might be a disaster waiting. I remember heading out in the lead group last year and was in it for the first 8 miles. It was very hectic. I get nervous when Im wheel to wheel at 20mph with people I dont know. Most people up there know whats going on but it takes one overlaped wheel to have a bad day.

Here John speaks out about next Sunday.

Also, I was thinking of starting 30 min sooner to miss the craziness and let them all catch us later when things have calmed down a bit. Either way I wish John and his free event all the best of luck. I’ll make my decision later this week.

But first I have to get thru this week. I hope to get at least two rides in before the weekend. And that looks like Thurs\Fri with rain calling on both days….

So…will have to wait and see.
