Time Trialing - August 10

OK, my little secret is out. I did a time trial and it was fun. Learned stuff like maybe I need to come up with a strategy before I'm trying to get clipped in at the start, where I need to train harder, to ignore the guy at the turn around, etc. I am pleased to report that I did much better than I expected but lots of room for improvement. Anywho, this was fun. The Davis Mad Cows and Wheelworks put on a low key, friendly, just have fun time trial every other Wednesday night. Come out and join in the giggles.

Next one is August 10 at 6 pm. http://www.madcowsracing.org/train/2005tt.html
Frozen margaritas at Dos Coyotes after provide an excellent recovery regimen.

Hmmm, wonder if I can justify a TT bike just for a 10 mile race once or twice a year.

i think the TT bike is justified...even if it's just to cruise to the store on...

I didn't adequately express my admiration earlier, you rock SK! A 20mph avg is impressive. I *do* see a TT bike in your future.

So, you two going to come join in the silliness? I wish I had done this earlier in the season to see how much our hill training program is benefitting my speed. Besides, there's always the maragaritas after.

Kim, the "Ben" Royere on the list is actually Bea from Pville.

That's all we have including triple cranksets and carried both water bottles. The list shows that someone comes out periodically on a race trike!

It is 9.5 miles from our house to the start, mostly on bike trail. Grab Robb and be at our house for a 5 pm warm-up spin to the start.
