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...

NL day 1

[isn't she purdy, thanks masi]

so today was the first day back on the bike in NL, after a rest-bit fighting mosquitos in sweden. it felt great to get in some good flat miles on the masi single speed, ahead of the the six day season [throw that in to make tim jealous]. i put in about 50K today and should be ramping up to about 100K by weeks end.

the masi worked great and the single speed was a perfect choice to bring with me this time to train around rotterdam. the bike lanes in NL are great, although the speed of public traffic is a drag sometimes to deal with. the few K on the paving pave is also a good workout, especially when you throw in a good headwind. even with a strong bike culture here, it still amazes me how the drivers on a single lane road buzz bikes.

[all old school]

[the scenery was not bad ether]

[LA river or NL canal?]
