Spring Teaser

Mother Nature was only teasing us with a small dose of spring but I will take it. It felt great to get out on the roads Friday & Saturday and feel the speed of the skinny tires for the first time in 2009.

On the highway north of Tetonia

Saturday's ride threw me a little curveball though. 2 1/2 hours into my planned 5 hour ride I started to experience pain in my right knee just above the knee cap. I know my saddle height is correct because I adjusted my saddle Friday before my ride. Hmmm. I may go see Fitzy for a quick fit check this week just to make sure.

Speaking of injuries; this is a request to all of my riding buddies out there.

STOP HURTING YOURSELVES!

No more broken collar bones, dislocated thumbs, torn ACLs, or dislocated patellas! I am looking forward to riding with all of you this summer so be careful out there.

Make sure your cleat/pedal interface and alignment is good.

I can't express how much I wish I could ride with you now.
