Almost time for some structure

3hrs of just riding around last night is all good. After todays putt-putt I need to add some time on the damn trainer. I haven't ridden my trainer more then 5 times in a couple years. I'd better start some hard efforts to harden up my soft ass, lungs and legs:) Would like to try some rollers, they look more like something I would like compared too being stationary on the trainer. Turning the Monkey back into a 1x9, while I love riding single I need something with gears for those hard efforts outside. Even the Bianchi is going to be geared back up. Aren't there some early gravel races or some shit put on by the All9Yards mates. Hell I'm even going to purchase some licenses this year, haven't had a license to race in 5yrs. Riding home from the prison today...supposed too snow....anyone been on Targhetto lately?

want to work on yer balance...ride Standard J-11:)

met these hobo's last night for some safety....

this hobo even had bags on his rig with scooby snacks...

Hilly Hundies are what make your pussies hurt, you know you want some!

A word to the wise: Booneville gravel is the consistency of preset concrete...when it's not ice. The last hill heading west towards Booneville is all ice, but not just your regular ice, it's like criscoed ice as the Stanley Steamer truck found out. He was off the road near the top of the hill and had to be winched out, after words he slip off the road again. Never seen ice like that, actually had to walk in the snow on the side of the road to make it up the hill. It should be melted by June though.
