RUSA 1000k Event in March 2019

RUSA 1000k Event in March 2019

Last year I didn’t ride all that many RUSA events. I injured myself in late April, and had to take some time off from riding to heal. Then when I was over the injury I had to ramp my fitness level up. Unfortunately I wasn’t all that motivated to do the ramping. Anyway, that’s why I didn’t ride all that much last year. However, I did do enough riding to get all but two events done toward a second RUSA Cup. At this time I still owe a 1000k event, and a Fleche event. Come March 9th in about a month from now I plan to tackle the 1000k event. And in early May I plan to tackle the Fleche event.

Yesterday I discovered that the registration for the 1000k event was open. It will be starting and ending in Salisbury, NC. The two overnights will be at a Super 8 motel in Lumberton, NC. Click on the map below to see the route in more detail at RWGPS.

Monday RUSA Ride: Metric Century

Monday RUSA Ride: Metric Century

The weather has been cold lately. I didn’t get all that many rides in for January. I was able to get 3 RUSA rides in, and 5 PFW rides. Over the weekend I got a PFW ride in. And today I was able to get a RUSA ride in. Once again I found myself straddling my 1976 Schwinn Paramount track bike with a 60″ gear. I chose an easy ride, and I just turned the pedals over without putting much into it. Somehow I made it through the ride in about 4.5 hours. Phew!

Sunday PFW Rocky Hill Ride

Sunday PFW Rocky Hill Ride

Today I lead my 6th PFW ride for the year, and the first one for the month of February. Yesterday was pretty cold, and I wimped out and cancelled it since I just was not in the mood to do it. Today the weather was much warmer, and clear. I had three guys show up: Peter, Jeff, and Rick. They were all on road bikes. Had a good time. I was on my track bike as usual riding a fixed gear.

Click on the map below to see the route we did. The rest stop was at mile 20 as usual. It was the Dunkin Donuts by the Princeton Junction train station on Princeton Hightstown Rd.

Ins and Outs of Doing a Short Brevet

Ins and Outs of Doing a Short Brevet

This video was supposed to be about burning lots of calories in a single bike ride. When I watched it my takeaway was it was just a long day on the bike. Said another way, it was about riding a brevet.

PFW B-Ride on Sunday

PFW B-Ride on Sunday

Had a good turnout for the ride this morning. There were 7 of us clipping in: me, Peter F, Drem, Rick, Ira, Jeff B, and Ralph. The temp was hovering around the freezing point when we departed at 9AM from the Princeton Fitness Club in Rocky Hill. I was the only one on a fixed gear bike. Ralph mistakenly thought there would be hills today – so he brought a road bike along. Everybody seemed to have a good time. I thought we rode pretty well considering it’s only late January now. Today’s ride was my 5th one this year that I have lead for PFW. 5 to go, and I can retire for yet another year.
