Orlando – New Years Day Ride and Tri County Tour

On January 1st, I kicked off the New Year with annual NY Day Ride in Orlando. This was my first large ride last year as it came about 4 months into my cycling experience. The 2015 edition was huge (over 500 riders) and fast. My KBS teammates and I played around up front for at least half the ride.
On Friday the 2nd I explored the West Orange Trail with the family (Zone 2 for me). Then Sunday I rode up thru Volusia, Orange and Seminole counties for an 80+ solo ride. Starting off the new year with a 200+ mile week!

1/3 – Solo Ride

Fun Weekend (Riding)

I departed from the training plan this weekend to go on two “Fun” Rides rather than what was on the schedule. Saturday was a Windy Solo 52 Mile effort and Sunday was another 50+ day with the Rotton Riders, Village Cycle Shoppe and Bob’s Bike Shop. It was fun sharing our WINDY coastal rides with the group from Orlando.

After 14 months on the bike I finally realized that I need to make sure that I have fun event when training for any challenge. I was still able to accomplish a 10+ hour week in the saddle and enjoy doing it!

Horrible Hundred 2014

My first Horrible Hundred is officially in the books. Rolling hills are definitely a new type of challenge for me, especially living on the coast where our hills are 20 mph headwinds or causeways.

Had a good time riding and hanging out with Paul Ricci from Cycling Across America; Taylor and Kelly from Primal Wear. If you have a shop, event or club these are definitely 2 organizations you want to be affiliated with.

Cycle4Alz (Cycle 4 Alzheimer’s) 2014 – Inaugural Event

On November 2nd, 2014, over 100 riders ascended on the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation in Melbourne on a chilly, windy November morning for the highly successful inaugural Cycle4Alz event. This was my first experience planning and directing an event. We had great sponsors and volunteers helping along the way; a special shout out goes to Bob’s Bicycle Shop for their on course support (and the beer trailer…I mean bike trailer).

Century Season is Upon Us!

Training for the Vuelta PR 2015 is going well and I personally will be using the century charity rides as a tune up for PR. There are several great ones to chose from and my company is putting on one as well.
