Taper

I'm tapering . . . . . I'm sitting on my ass doing nothing.
A necessary evil I suppose. It's a nice day and I could be out riding. I've got a lot to do to prep for the race: packing and planning and shit - but I don't feel like it.

Last big race of the year. Still not sure how I feel about it. What will be will be.

The Vegan Princess brought her bike over last night so that we could throw a lighter set of wheels on it to make her 24 hrs of loneliness effort a tad bit easier. Well, I got the bike lighter for her . . . . took about a pound of dirt off of it. Am I the only person I know who cleans their bikes? Anyway . . . . Tanya will be all set, after a bushing change, to kick some butt at HAN. I'd wish you luck, but you don't need it - you're going to be flying out there!
** Thanks a tonne for the prezzie for working on your bike Tanya - completely not necessary but very appreciated indeed!

Will get out this week for a few easy spins. Had my last hard'ish type ride with Mark on Friday - a Gats road loop. Made use of all the lovely hills over there - attacked on all the climbs, speed, power, laddy dah, laddy dah, laddy dady dady dah.

Hey everyone, if you need your bike cleaned just bring it over to Craig's. Say you need to borrow a part or need him to show you how to fix something. Then say you have to be somewhere. When you get back, the bike will be clean. Craig can't work on a dirty bike. My bike looks like new! I can see my reflection in the chain rings!!

For the record, I was going to clean my bike before the race...honest!

Good Luck to you too Big Ring! You're going to kick butt just like Solstice.

A pressie is a present/gift. Picked up the slang while living in New Zealand a few years ago and haven't seemed to get rid of it.
