So i made my way down to the Swope park mtn bike trails tonight.
It's a lot of fun down there... hard, but fun. Plus it's fun just getting there, from my place you can take the trolly trail, then Gregory blvd, then boom! You're there.
I'd like to say that i went Ric Ocasek all over those trails but the truth is havent been on a proper mtn bike trail in about 3 months so i think i've lost the feel. i better get it back soon because R.I.M. is coming up!
I think i'll head out there tomorrow too since they do 'show and go' races every thursday.
Be there or be square, daddy-o.

Actually, i've never seen an electric jellyfish, but i saw a bunch of balloon's this past Thursday.
It was the third Thursday of the month which meant it was casual alley cat time down at Volker Bicycles 2.0. The race was simple... ride to a parking garage in the plaza, find and blow up the balloon's, then ride back with as many balloon's as possible. It was a magical time.
Double Nickel took it home. He's peaking right now.
See you on the next third Thursday,

How Much: Free
What you need: You and your bike, maybe some rain gear.
The rest of the juicy details will be divulged during the pre-race meeting. don't worry, it's going to be very casual. No frontal nudity or anything of that nature. Unless of course you're into that, which is cool.
Check out the below photo. You like my spoke card? It remains to be seen whether or not they will go into mass production and be available tomorrow. i may be the only person to ever have one!

We tooled around downtown kc the other night. Drank some canned beer (of the 'yard' variety). Listened to a little honky tonk music (of the good variety). Had a little Austrian schnappes (of the strong variety). Basically we just lived it up all night. Subsequently... the entire next day was basically a lost cause.
Living the dream, folks. One Hamm's at a time.

i was in Lawrence, Kansas this weekend for the Tour Of Lawrence Bicycle race. I raced two days. Saturday was hilly and i sucked big time, Sunday was flat and i felt quite a bit better. Despite that, i think both the courses are really fun and it's just a great event in a great town.
Besides that we did lot's of drinking, checked out some fireworks, and just enjoyed the town of Lawrence in general. i even got in some quality coffee shop time. So necessary.

So it's 12 weeks till the first Cyclo-cross race. I'm pumped. I wonder if i can whip myself into shape by then. Maybe i'll walk around with head phones blasting eye of the tiger for the next 12 weeks and by the time i hit the start line for that first race my muscles will be bursting out of my spandex just like Rocky in Rambo II. Or is that Rambo in Rocky II?
