Went skiing for the first time yesterday and had absolutely no problems, not that I was expecting any but it was a good milestone to hit because I am thinking if I can ski, I can ride! I skied with my too sons, my father, and my 5 year old niece. Brought the helmet cam and took a bunch of videos that I will be compiling later when I get some time.
While watching the Super Bowl yesterday I noticed a post on Facebook from Fabian, a former racing team member, about Singlespeed-apalooza just opened for registration. Last year I missed this because I was more focused on racing on Team NEMBA and the Root66 races conflicted but now that I am unaffiliated with any group of team I am free to pick and choose what to race. Checking with the wife to make sure the schedule is open, she gave me the green light, so I registered! Good thing that I did so quickly because it closed out really quickly, like an hour or two!
I am registered in the NY Sport division which has a total of 94 racers and unless someone wants me to wear their kit I will be wearing my NEMBA kit. It's time to start training and riding the single speed! I am going to start out light by riding dirt roads and then work my way up to trails.
