Whoo! The summer cycling season for me is starting up. Its 7 AM, about 45 degrees outside…sunny and I’m getting ready to head out the door to ride in the Salem Bike Club’s Monster Cookie event. This is a really cool metric century ride that goes through the Oregon Wine country. Its a well done event (actually, all of the Salem Bike Club events are well done) and the perfect start to the season as I start to get my miles back up for the summer (this week for example, I’ll ride close to 360 miles — up from the 200-225 I ride in the winter). Anyway, I’ll post an update when I get back later tonight.
