So, you think you can climb a hill on your bike, huh? Well check this out: Fargo Hill Climb I've always been fascinated by how those really, really skinny dudes can go up hill so fast and I've come to realize that it is all about physics. You see, if you are a little skinny f__ker you can go UP hill faster. Why you ask? Well, why is there air? Just because. And remember: "gravity is not just a good idea, it is the LAW!" So, what's a guy to do? For starters give up the crappy food, loose the belly, and start climbing hills. Sounds simple enough right. So, if I keep the same strength and lose a few elbeess' I'll be able to go faster uphill. Let me think about that again over another glass of wine. After all, there is no extra calories in wine so I'm safe right?

I know, I know. It's been ages since I updated this thing, but hey, now that I'm on FaceMagnet, I can't seem to find the time to update this Blog very often. So here goes.
What's happened since Nov of 2008 anyway. Well, a lot of the same old shit, and of course, work, work and more work. But, I have found time to ride many, many miles and that has been a bonus for life. Let's see: 51 rides, 1,749 miles, and 49,891 feet of climbing so far this year. Not bad for a working old man, eh?
I would go out for a ride today, but some asshole turned up the wind machine, and turned it full blast! As you can see from the insert. It's a howlin' at 27 miles per hour around here. And judging from the trees bangin' against the house, it's every bit of that 27 miles an hour. So, today I enter the dreaded home gym for some real work on some muscles that haven't seen exercise in awhile. Oh boy, soreness tomorrow. Well better get to it.
