Yeah... I gotta' slow down! My beautiful wife tells me about it all the time, and this morning on the way to work, it was confirmed by the LPD yet again. Luckily it was another warning, but the message is clear to me -- it's time to cut out the speed racer antics in the car -- on public streets that is.
I can't say I won't ever toe up to the line at one of our fine Nebraska SCCA races at some point in the not too distant future, but racing cars stands in direct time (and budget) conflict with racing bicycles. And there lies my problem -- I still love to ride and race bikes, and that takes a lot of my time... But I digress.
The irony of my getting pulled over is that I was actually running ahead of time this morning, so I had no need to speed. I was still pretty much on-time even with getting pulled over, which is pretty amazing for me!
With that somewhat stressful start to the day, I'm looking forward to a sweet ride from MWC tonight at 6. The weather doesn't get any better than this, and the conditions in Wilderness Park are ON TIME! Nate and EP were talking about throwing in some alley cat antics on the way to the park, which sounds like fun. Urban doubletrack to suburban singletrack -- yep, that's the ticket!
Tonight's ride will likely mark the return of a special bike from my past. With no bike sponsor this season, I've gone back into the vaults and called one of my old favorites out of retirement to back up my Dos Niner.
Hope to see y'all there.
