after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

RIDE saturday

[25 april 2008]

ok, i've recovered from the heat and my rides with tim.
on saturday i started out from la mesa and headed west to meet up with tim in fashion valley, than on to fiesta island to do a few laps with manuel. after that tim i headed toward mt. soledad and i proceeded to wreak myself up it, in what was one of the first rides of the year in 100 degree weather, i swear i saw confederate soldiers on mt. soledad when i reached the top. from there we proceeded down the backside, on a decent i would rather forget [really bad concrete pads, that were raised up in every direction, usually pointing you straight into a pot hole at a grade of +15%] we then cruised over to UCSD and turned back towards the bike trail along the 5 freeway. out of no where as tim and i are doing a good clip and talking BS, a few riders from dewalt, ucc, etc. grab our tail and of course tim and i were having none of that, so tim put the hammer down, i followed and the boys behind, stayed behind. it seems that they couldn't muster enough strength to overcome tim's dieseling at 30+ into a headwind. i dropped tim off again in fashion valley and i proceed to climb my way back to la mesa in 100+ weather, uuugggg.
