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... [anonymous comments are lame, cowboy up and put a name or start a blog]

greg and i got [2] good days of riding in this weekend, totally over 11hrs. the weather in socal has been perfect for december. today we went up and over the hill to santa monica and down to manhattan beach. the weather was ideal and apparently there was a party i wasn't invited too, as the roads were almost vacant of raging auto drivers. all in all a great preseason training weekend, tons of miles and some good efforts here and there. but mostly hours of leg speed work at high cadence. before i forget and the espresso wears off, we ran into our good friends from the iMartin days, todd, mike, joel, josh, and [?], it was really great to see them out riding and i hope we can all get it together and ride longer together real soon.

[i found a stash of dutch training treats, it's better than finding a dollar in your pocket.]

[greg and i taking off the early morning cold weather gear and getting ready to turn around in the south bay and head home. you can see by the way greg's jersey fits, he has lost a few stones and is in race fighting shape. as i mentioned before, his daily core workouts and cross training on the rowing machine is turning him into one legendary figure. be fore warned you youngsters on the team, he's 53 and will make you cry.]
