first week has been pretty interesting. highlight (if that's the right word) has been the crash during the sprint finish on stage 3...

Today was the first time we took the baby on the bike, he loved it!

Felt so good to be in a bike, I did have to wimp out n the final hill home and walk the bike up, but I haven't been on a bike for two years!

I did wear a helmet, I just took it off for the photo.

Ha, I actually made my husband do it and I pushed his bike up the hill! I am going to bring the baby carrier so if I can't make it up the hill today I can put him in the carrier, cause yeah, the bike is pretty unstable with the baby on the back and no parent on the front.

In other news, we saw part of the Tour of California yesterday! It was really cool and so fast! We also glimpsed Lance Armstrong in be of the cars following the race!

I'm so bummed I missed the days when the Tour was nearby. I am going to try and watch the remaining stages online, though.

the smartphone apps for both the giro and the tour of california are worth a look. unless it's a glitch that will comes back and bite me financially, both are free and both have coverage live-streamed during stages.

steephill.tv has links to Giro coverage, fyi

b) SAGAN!

Cav is pretty much unstoppable. he STOPPED PEDALLING mid sprint today and still came from behind Goss to pull out a full bike length. amazing.

Doing the East Bay Rally Cat race today. Should be interesting - 40 miles and 5,500 feet of climbing on mixed terrain (which means I ride my cross bike). Hope I don't die on some gravely fireroad descent!

Well, I didn't DFL, which is something!

I also found out that I HAAAAAATE my cross bike. I knew the brave levers didn't work for me, but I had no idea how much they didn't work for me until I rode the thing 40 miles and had some real dirt descents to deal with, not just the kiddie stuff I'd been mucking around with in the park here. I realized partway down the first dirt descent that I couldn't depress the levers enough to bring myself to a full stop, which was bummertown. I also realized that while the geometry/fit of my cross bike is okay for city riding, it's painful after more than an hour. It also has me up too high so that I can't put a foot down on uneven ground or dab the side of a track if needed. My decision to sell it has been majorly validated, because it made the ride a lot more difficult than it would have otherwise been.

Even so, I finished, and it was a tough-ass ride, so yay!

Haha. Sounds like a new team cx bike is on the way?? Cross bikes started with really high BBs to get over obstacles/whatnot and most of them are still like that now so everything in the geometry is shifted up compared to a road bike. Its sometimes hard to be in the saddle and still touch a foot down depending on the bike.

Yeah, I know. In the city, and the smaller rides I've done, that's been okay, but I think I need something that fits a bit differently. When I bought it, I had only done road riding, so I didn't really have any way of knowing what would work for me in a cross bike. I'm hardly an expert now, but I have ridden a lot more dirt, and I've definitely got a feel for what I want in a cross bike, and unfortunately, the Jake doesn't seem to be it. There are other issues too, like the fact that it weighs in at 22+ pounds for my 49 cm frame. I'm going to test ride a whole bunch of bikes and see what's up, but I've definitely got my eye on something...

Thats the best way to figure out what you need/want though. Instead of spending a ton at first and finding out that bikes not right for you. A light bike is definitely beneficial when your tired and trying to make it up the runups! going new or used?

Hot damn! 210 miles in under 24 hours is wild on roads, but on a mountain bike course! My legs shake to even think about it.

In other leg shaking news I just got back from my first solo ride of any reasonable distance since I fracked up my knee last fall. It felt so good to be out in the fields on my bike again. It also gave me an opportunity to re-figure out some quirks that I want to look at which will lead to the rest of my day off looking up bike parts :)

Amen. That is insane, and my hat is majorly off to that guy.

I'm on the fence about signing up for a 50 mile mtb-ish thing:
