A Whole Lot of Riding This Weekend!

This weekend is chocked full of some fun times!

First there is the Breast Cancer ride on Saturday morning leaving from Scott's Cycle & Fitness at 10 o'clock in the morning. There are two rides available. The first is a nice leisurely 10 mile ride over into West Salem through the park along the river. The second is a 25 mile ride up north through Kiezer out into the beautiful farm land towards the Weatland Ferry. Both rides start and finish as Scott's. And both are no drop rides with plenty off regrouping points. The cost is $25 donation. For any other questions please contact the Scott's Cycle (503-363-4516). Hope to see you there!

The second ride is on Sunday and that's the Cross Crusades race #2 all the way over in Rainer, Or. I'm really looking forward to this course as it seems a little more suited to a ahem guy of my stature. I'm headed over there with with J and Melinda. And we're having to leave at a ridiculous time of morning in order to get there with enough time for check in and proper warm up. Oh the sacrifices we make in the name of fun!  I'll give you a full report on this and the Breast Cancer ride come Monday.

There is also the Heiser Farms cross race going on Saturday and a high and loud woot! to all the people going up there to volunteer and race. Hope you guys have fun!

One last thing that is related to yesterdays post. There was a really interesting interview on today with Floyd Landis. It's a good read if you feel so inclined

Keep the rubber side down,

  1. I love watching those supernatural, inhuman, extraordinary, and every other usurious adjective you can think of, Tour de France performances. Especially the epic climbs up the likes of Vontoux, Alpe d'Huez, Tourmalet, or Col d'Aubisque. ...and I don't so much care how it's done. I don't so much care if riders are injecting or ingesting tetramethylbadshit in order to get it done. I don't care if it's American or French, or Astana or Caisse d'Epargne. Here's what I do care about: I care that whomever is doing it is honest about how they did it. Nobody likes a cheat. What if the UCI said it was OK to dope? Would that make it unfair for those who didn't want to dope? What if testing stopped? What if it was self-regulated? I don't think these guys will ever stop. Even if the tetramethyl kills them - more the glory. They will do anything to win. I'm surprised nobody has prostituted their mother or sold their first born to get it done. Fine, let them. Let them keep giving us monster performances that the rest of us can covet and be in awe. So long as we know how they are doing it. Doping or not. Be honest. Amen.
