Happy New Year!!!! (Sorry Lance)

Well it’s been so long between posts that even my son gave me hell...bit of a role reversal, but I suppose he is right.  Still...I’m gonna hafta kill him now; if only he wasn’t the son of Superman...
This isn't him...
Anyways, I’m all out of Kryptonite.  I guess I could have made him watch the Lance interviews on Oprah with me.  Watching anything on Oprah is enough to suck the life out of any real man.  Since I’ve watched it I have found myself crying myself to sleep every night, craving Haagen- Dazs and pillow fights.  Well, I still like watching movies that start with pillow fights and end with scissoring, so I think I am OK.
Actually the real reason I haven’t posted for a while is that there hasn’t really been anything edge-of-your-seat riveting enough to post about (not that I ever live the life of Bond...just a lowly Superman).  I have been managing to ride throughout these winter weeks...if you really want to call them winter.  It has been so mild...there were a couple of mid teen (temperature wise) days in January where we actually pulled out the road bikes from winter storage.  Now that was awesome!!  Otherwise, for the most part, it has been just cold enough to keep the trails frozen, but warm enough to be comfortable if dressed properly.  This wouldn’t do it...

Anyways, just been riding to get the base miles in...with structured training planned to start in February.  Remember, you can always check out the Strava widgie on the right to check out my biking activity (I know...nobody gets that bored!).

I have registered for the SteamingNostril Race in March, and for the Paris to Ancaster in April.  And NewfieSteve has agreed that we should team up to do all three of the 8 Hour Races as the duo Team DaNoofie N DaNative this I will get us registered for those.  Also, NewfieSteve is unsure of his full participation in the 24 Hour Summer Solstice due to family obligations (thanks to his newly engaged sister-in-law Joy), so I am contemplating teaming up with Ozzy as a duo team for this race...depending on what the Newf decides.
Actually I originally met Ozzy at a 24 Hour race, where we ended up a 2 man team because three members of our 5 person team bailed early on.
Riot and Ozzy post race...

On a side note, EnglishJim had a brand new (two rides old) custom built titanium 29er stolen from his home about 18 months ago, and it showed up this week (well the frame anyways), in a strange twist of events and sleuthing!!  So he will have a project to build up a second bike. as I said...not a whole lot to comment on lately.  I need more friends to crash, or something.  Or, maybe I need to take a storytelling class so I can make shite up?  Next post...”Riot’s Abduction by Alien Lesbians Mountain Bike Adventure”!!??

Stay posted!!


RIP now little Boothby.  You fought long and hard.  A cherished member of Riot’s sister’s family.
