Last Post of 2012

Well. I've gotten in three or four garage rides since my last post and finally got to my 5000 mile goal for the year. The final score: 194 bike rides for 5,021 miles. I rode .25 mph faster this year, which may or may not mean anything depending on the comparability of the rides.

I did a very nice metric century in Tennessee where I chased down, however briefly, some famous pro riders, completed four of six stages of Cycle Montana before falling ill, and lost about 15 pounds give or take. I also rode up Glendora Mountain Road outside of Los Angeles on the 4th of July and met Volosong and Mr Beanz on that ride. Videos and photos can be seen by scrolling back through the blog pages so I won't repost them here.  Well maybe just one (that little line behind me is the road up GMR, by the way):

I've been on prescription testosterone supplementation for nearly a year now and  almost feel like I've been aging in reverse. Middle aged men, get tested!

It has been a very darn good year. In 2013 I'm going to a week-long cycling camp in Rimini, Italy and will ride up Passo Gavia in mid-July. We're also going to see a stage of the Tour de France, the one on Mont Ventoux. More on that soon. For now thanks for reading and Happy New Year. 


  1. Hi,

    Thought I would try to reach you here. Tried the bike blog but I need 50 posts. You are very encouraging.
