\ racing ...09 recap. If I didnt race bikes I would have lots of free time.

Done racing bikes for the year. 1900 miles or so raced. + 21 hours of cross. 71 races started. I had a power meter this year, so it is kind of neat to look back on the data (not the power data as much as distance/time)...

High Month: Included riding down to the beach.

month | duration | distance (mi)
Aug-2009 | 91:39:30 | 1339.95

All of the other months until September hovered between 950 - 1100 miles. I stopped keeping data at the start of cross. I am guessing I will end up with somewhere around 11,000 miles for 2009.

I honestly think the highlights of the year were
- Riding in Colorado in the Spring.
- Doing Battenkill as a guest on haymarket
- Bike trip to the beach photos 1 photos 2, and photos 3

I am putting my race bag away for a few months. Trying to plan some winter adventures.

I spent my first day of the off season putting in new wood floors for the kind of in laws. 14 hours straight or something. They look awesome. Will finish tomorrow and maybe post pictures if I dont mess them up too bad. I feel like I got hit by a train from being on my hands and knees so much.

I havent touched a bike since sunday.

I love that you keep track of this. I'm going to try and do the same.
See you in Cali soon!

It's odd that you didn't put tour de strongland mtb race...why?

steve k! said...

genuinely surprised you did not mention or at least asterisk the trifecta.

Lenore said...

what's the difference between 42nd and field?

Mike said...

Dude, you don't have a job, so isn't all your time "free time" ?

steevo said...

Dear Lenore,
I will pay you 1 gazillion space bucks if you ever finish in the "field" of an individual time trial.

Kirk Morrison said...

Congrats on a great season. Excellent blog and highly motivational ! Thx.

Craig said...

Like Kirk said^^^^
Also, a great mix of training and racing last season. I also did the Mohican last year. What does the DQ refer to? BTW, how did you like the Wilderness 101?
Best of luck in 2010!

I didn't know you had kids? How was trick or treating?

Hi!! My name is Amy, not sure how I came across your blog, but I am new to Pittsburgh and want to buy a cyclocross bike. You seem like quite an expert in bikes and I was wondering if you could help me!
