Been Tooo Long

So I haven't been blogging much lately. I've been riding a decent bit. I'm at approximately 2100 miles year to date.

Noel recently had a great fundraiser for Team where she organized a Poker Run & Bike ride in the Davidsonville are and raised thousands of dollars for Team. It was a ton of fun and I think everyone had a great time. Over 100 riders came out and it will likely be an annual event.

I did a ride with Jake this weekend up in Baltimore called the Tour du Port. He knocked out 22 miles no problemo. I'm pretty confident he'll be ready for a 40 + mile ride next year. Maybe I'll take him down to the Hains Point new years ride where folks do laps all day and drink hot chocolate. We'll have to see.

Below are is a course route and some photos from the ride.


Other than the recent rides I did a bunch of metrics this year and a century in early august. I hope to keep riding during the fall and winter, but fear too many evenings I will be consigned to spinning on the trainer -- more because of the early darkness than because of the weather.

I am hoping to jump on a new ride with the folks from the Bike Rack in DC this Sunday to see how it goes. Its a weekly ride with 40 and 80 mile options. I'm going to do the 40 mile version because I fear I won't be able to keep up with the pace for a full 80 miles.

If I get my butt in gear I may blog on it Monday morning.
