We've been having some pretty intense bike workouts and training rides lately and I feel like I'm about ready to race. My knee is still feeling just a bit twingy if that's an actual word but I'm able to put some good power to it. I'm going to start with the 2nd. RATL race since the first one which is next Saturday is the Flanders style ride that Jim Behrens is putting on starting near the LeRoy TT course. He has a 35 mile loop mapped out riding in and out of the Big Creek Valley to Chardon and back which consists of steep hills, both short and steep and longer and steep. He said there is around 3500' of climbing in the 35 mile loop.
Got in a good 30 mile ride with Ray Huang, Craig Hannibal and Dave Berlecamp this morning from Squires Castle in some brutal winds, climbed strong and managed to get a run in before the ride started and my knee felt good, so I think I'll start hitting the track a couple times a week now, hopefully on a consistent basis.
