I have to admit that in the chaos of things over the last week, I’ve found my training slipping a bit. I’ve still been getting in (most of my) exercising and riding, but it’s been a bit choppy and not necessarily complete, if you get my drift. Yes, I mean I’ve been a bit of a slack. To my credit, though, I have been loosing weight and inches, so that’s not all bad. Without further adieu, and so as to not bore you, I give you the Weekly Roundup!
50K Loop NS: Bluenoser shares a bit on what he’s been up to, and it seems we are very much in the same boat. He and I both are buried alive in work, and all kinds of other crap. It seems as though, from his phrasing, that he too is trying his darndest to get in his workouts and intervals. I can’t wait to hear where Bluenoser is at on his weight loss, but for the time being take a minute to read his post from 2008/09/08. It describes things slowing down, and time for riding opening up. He also shares how these rides were taken on a homemade single speed ala a Keith Bontrager article explaining how to beg, borrow, barter and buy your way to a single speed bike. Some great picts too, BN!
Fat Cyclist: It’s so very hard to figure out when to take Fatty serious or not. I think that this is one of those times that we can assume he might (I know, really sure, right?) actually be serious. Regardless, it looks like Fatty will (not?!) be a part of a (real?!) panel at Interbike. He took a minute to give a quick Preview Of (his) Contribution To The Interbike Web 2.0 Social Media Panel.
Cozy Beehive: Ron had me rolling, and spitting water, when I read his Open Letter to Günter Mai: Getting Closer To Sub-7. Günter has apparently spent upwards of the national debt to put together a sub-seven pound bike. OK, so it’s still 7.04, but darn it, he almost there! Reading about it, too, on light-bikes.com is a riot.
Highway Munky: Finally, a quick note on Highway Munky and his site. He took a quick jump over to Wordpress from Blogger. Also a bunch of posts going back to November 2007 are there as well. Also, as a side note, for those of you who pay more attention than the average person, Cycling Phun has a home at Wordpress as well. I’m keeping it in Blogger for now, but just in case.
OK, now that you read this, get outside and get a couple rides in before summer is over. Enjoy it while it lasts, right? As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.
