Today we had a team ride at Elevate in Orem, which is an awesome facility! They had about 8 computrainers that we all rode on while watching the '06 tour on the projection screen. I rode about 2 hours which was about all I could handle. I was riding single which meant I really relied on trainer resistence, which the computrainers were great at. After about two hours I went out with Matt to do hills. Unfortunately, with my gear ratio I couldn't make it up the steep foothills in Provo we planned on doing. So we did some smaller hills, 9th east a few times, and then came back home. It was a good ride but I think I'm going to put my gears back on.

10 degrees

Well, here we are in the middle of an abnormally cold January, where it hasn't gotten above 20 for a week. Sometimes you just have to get out and today I couldn't resist. It was only 10 degrees so I bundled up and went out. I only had time for a 45 minute ride, but at the end I was still warm enough to keep going . . . which measn I'll have no problem getting out in this insane cold anymore! I was out on my road bike that I've got set up as a single speed right now. I've got it at a 50 x 18, which is a great all around gearing.

A Blog?

So I guess I'm starting a blog! Probably I'll just be writing about my cycling, etc.
