Sunday plans

Was thinking of rolling the fruit loop 250 with the gunnar in desert storm mode. Rolls saddle and specialized nimbus tan 700x35's on. The bike was test ridden 30 miles today and is far too heavy with those tires as sweet as it looks. Back to the conti cross speeds and brooks saddle for the long ride. Look forward to laughing till I puke, then bonking off.

This summer has been a little weird for riding. With the heat, rain, and time constraints it has been harder to get the mileage in that I was putting in this spring. Granted depending on the week I am still doing 150-300 miles every week which is still great. Motivation comes and goes sometimes getting a little burnt out after putting in 5500 miles already this year. Either way trying to keep myself motivated and keep the legs strong. Very much looking forward to the fruit loop this weekend with some good friends. Expect a long write up of that after the ride happens on Sunday. Until then get on your bikes and sweat it out!

4th Ride

Had a great ride with Jill on Monday the 4th of July...a special day for us. Beautiful weather allowed us to get out for a couple hours on the bikes. I rode the Gunnar Crosshairs and Jill road the Litespeed antares. We stopped by Ari's house to catch up for a little while and then cruised northeast towards Burlington and got about 45 miles in for the day. We headed out to Geneva for dinner and found nothing open except a nice little wine shop...had a glass of wine and scoped out a spot for dinner. We ended up in West Dundee at Emmetts for delicious food and drinks. Had a great weekend with the girlfriend!
