I had a great weekend, can’t say the same for the week, but that’s neither here nor there. I was able for the first time in weeks to get out for a ride, and a stellar ride at that. It was raining, the air was extremely crisp, and the leaves covered the ground like a blanket. It made for a fun ride since the ride was in an old quarry, and the wet leaves covering the wet rocks meant that I couldn’t really see what I was riding into. Now, without further adieu, I give you the Weekly Roundup!
The Wah Report: First off congratulations are in order for Jared Roy, of The Wah Report. Jared came in, in the Bronze In Cyclocross Rider Of The Year 35+, & Crossniacs Top Team. It was a bit vague, but I am assuming that this is for the state of Minnesota, though I’m not one hundred percent sure, maybe Jared will specify in the comments section. Either way, congratulations.
Highwaymunky Blog: Woo hoo! Munky is back fairly regularly now, and this is a good thing! He took a nice little ride, an Epic Ride (OMG I’m In Trouble Ride). Thirty-eight miles as the crow flies, a lot of off road, and a metric crap ton of gear. The pictures, however, are absolutely amazing! Great to have you back in the loop Munky!
50K Loop NS: The cross bug has bit Bluenoser, and there may not be any going back. He seems to have fallen hard for cross racing. He’s already working on modifications to his new bike, and talking about a cross bike for next year. 11.11.08 is a quick run down of his lessons from his recent racing, and his hopes for future races. One Brazing Bastard: Likewise, with Blunoser’s frame building project, as of 07.11.08 he has seemingly decided that the frame to build will be a cross frame. Best wishes on that Bluenoser, and when you’re done with your cross frame, could ya make an extra in a 54?
Ray’s Racing Adventures: Ray was also out in the woods on a single track recently, when he came to a problem that was simply Annoying. Apparently, Ray fell and broke something. No, not a bone, rather a rear derailleur. It seems as though a rogue twig caught the derailleur and popped it off like a bottle cap. Luckily all of my bike have remained in one piece.
Fat Cyclist: Finally this week Fatty paid homage to all of those who were doing Fall Moab. That’s to say he was giving Advice To The Attendees Of Fall Moab This Week. He was not able to be in attendance this year, but he is sharing his years of experience with those who will be there. One of my favorites is the advice he gives regarding Bratwursts. Go ahead, you know you’re curious, check it out for yourself. Oh, and WIN Susan!
Well, that’s it for this week. Keep up the riding, before the snow is too deep to. As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.
