Has it really been a week since I have updated this site? Apparently yes it has. I know how you all hang on my every post, follow me like disciples and feverishly read and digest every word I write like it was a great prognostication telling of future fortunes and greatness. I have let you down making you wait a week for any of my wise tidings. My most humble apologies and may the fleas from a thousand camels infest my armpits!
After months of waiting we Michiganders are in that time of year that delicately balances upon “I wore too much riding” or “Sheesh I didn’t wear enough” it’s a tough time of year for we noble people that call the “Mitten” home we are seemingly always in a state of weather related flux. I mean seriously how many people out there have to wear 3 distinct outfits for riding…at the same time? There is a saying here in the Great Lakes State….if you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes it will change. It is not uncommon for you to start out in winter riding gear and by the end of your ride you are in summer gear. You think I am lying…ask around. People from Michigan will regale you with stories of sunburn and frost bite that occurred on the same day. I have to relearn my dressing tactics from last year and have not quite got it down “just so” yet having spent Saturday sweating profusely and Sunday a shivering frozen mess. I am in the process of writing a “How to Survive Michigan Cycling” guide that I will be posting on the site very soon. As usual it will be chock full of sarcasm and hilarity.
In other news I was asked to do something truly AWESOME last week! What you ask? I will tell you once it goes public and official but it has to do with the American Diabetes Association. Needless to say 2011 is going to be an awesome year around these parts.
Stay tuned and stay away from the Halloween candy!!!!!!
P.S. The word “Michiganders” is not corrected in spellcheck….which gives us from Michigan some Street Cred.
