Two solid hours of riding at Chrystal Ridge. Good times!

Great weekend.  Relaxing evenings at home, had a blast a Saturday's cyclocross race and mountain biking today.  Got a bunch done on the kitchen remodel too.  Excited that the dishes are going back in the cupboards and the food back in the pantry tonight.  To celebrate, I made some yellow fin tuna steaks crusted in sesame seeds with a salad for dinner.  Yum!

Awesome day for cross! Warm enough in the middle of November to ride in a jersey and shorts! Rode over from home as a warm up and the race ended up being about 40 minutes. Ended up 23/43. Not quite the top half I wanted but I rode hard and am happy. Fun course with a hard run up, some fast single track, and a few good corners. Having a blast with cross.

Happy Friday kids.  Plan for the weekend is to do some cyclocross tomorrow and maybe some mountain biking after that.  Working on the kitchen remodel will be spread across the whole damn weekend.

Wouldn't it be cool to be able to embed youtube videos on BT?  I think so.  Then you would know that link is to a cool BMX video.

Took the Superfly out for a night ride. Rigged up an old light that Lori had in the basement for a few years and the battery held a charge for about 40 minutes. Had fun cruising around on the multi use path and down by lake Michigan.

Self portrait at the start line:


This is the pedestrian bridge that you rode under just before the finish.  It was the way in and out of the beer area:

Sunset at the lake our cabin was next to:



Our crew.  Jim, Lindsey (who finished 11th in pro women), me and Lori.



Mountain bike racing is fun.  Really looking forward to next season!
