I must be the laziest endurance cyclist ever. Well, lazy as in not wanting to race my bike right now. Riding sure is fun, but racing is not what I feel like doing on my weekends.
So I've decided to bail on the Marathon National Championship this weekend in Breckenridge. Why? Several reasons. One, I don't want to miss the Biiklops tonight at Screen Ink. Secondly, I don't want to spend 20 hours in a car for 5 or 6 hours of racing. That math just don't add up in my book. Third, the weather is gonna be beautiful in Lincoln! Why not get some long rides in right here in The Good Life. Finally, I'd like to hang out with some friends this weekend. Well, there you have it. I just felt the need to justify my absence at the race this weekend.
Some good news on the racing front! I got an email from the Laramie Enduro race promoter the other day. Several folks have dropped out since last month. Several folks have been given a slot including myself. Sweet! I love that place. I'll be out there at the beginning of August for another crack at the Laramie Enduro.
Who wants to ride Saturday morning? Jeff is riding to Grand Island and he would love to have some company. I'm planning on joining him for some of the trip. Probably ride to York, get some brunch, and ride back to Lincoln. Wind is forecast out of the south at a pretty good clip (15 to 20 mph). Cross wind all day. Probably leave around 7 AM from D Street. Gravel of course.
