A buddy recently told me I’m too intelligent for lap racing.  Dunno bout that.  Maybe.  Perhaps everything pales in light of the intense stimulus of the dual Grand Loop experience this spring.  For now I’m going with Shane’s assessment more or less – brain and body need new stimulus.  That’s the beauty of cycling, there are soooo many ways to get your spin on.

Yesterday I went out for a rolly singletrack ride on the Lev, but with a twist.  I picked a roughly 2:1 gear and stopped shifting.  That was an hour of fun that was so sorely missing last weekend.  I’ve never had a SS bike and have spent a grand total of 10 minutes on one.

See where I’m going with this?

Out with adversity, in with diversity.
