Back on the Bike

So I've been back on the bike (for a period that will remain untimed) and it feels great. Not so much that my shoulder feels brand new, but just pedaling around in the sun and the feel of the wind is great. The shoulder doesn't feel bad at all on the bike, no worse then if I was drenched in sweat riding the trainer inside. All I can really do is stay seated and do no pushing or pulling on the bars. It's great though as it forces you to use nothing but leg muscles.

Last weekend since I wasn't gone racing like I normally am this time of year I got the opportunity to go to the Indy 500 from Sherri (mother in law) and Larry. Larry has gone for over 30 years, but recently has ownership over 8 seats every year, and they saved me a seat this year. I was able to take part in their traditions that began with eating donuts, followed by a drawing to pick drivers to win a trophy, walking to the track from the same spot 2 miles away, eating fried chicken, cheezits, and chocolate chip cookies, walking back and taking a photo based on how well you did in the picking of drivers. I showed my rookie form by finishing last and lack of knowledge as I had picked two rookies myself, out of the three we each picked. The whole thing was so much fun and I have to find a way back next year.

Me at the race track. Thanks for the sweet hat and shirts Will!

The following day I headed up with my bike to my Uncle/Aunt's and Cousins Inlaws lake houses. My wife left the previous day as she didn't want to spend the Sunday while I was at the race all alone, so I left early Monday morning on my bike to meet up with everyone. I left plenty early as I was able to arrive in time for my second breakfast at 10am. Nothing like having 120km's done before 10am. The weather just so happen to be subpar that day so the activities of the day were minimual, but I did find time to partake in my first race back but I lost to Alex a 3 year old rider with lots of power. I was very dissappointed in my peformance and am going to have nightmares about that baby blue streak that went flying away from me. My luck continued to fail as Jeff and I sat with fishing lines in a lake with apparently no fish.

As for future races go it looks like Fitcburg will be my first race back. I was looking at Nature Valley for a while, but that would have been just over the 4 week mark and that would be on the edge of safe as any crash would probably sideline me for another 5 weeks. I really, really wanted to do it as it is a big race for the team, but with the way everyone is riding now I think they will do just fine without me.

That's all for now
