On Apparatuses and Straining Vital Organs

It's off to the races for this year's Omaha Cycling Weekend. For me? No, not to race, but to watch and volunteer.

How about an early morning training ride for those of us not racing? I'm going to bring out the TT bike for this one since I haven't been on it in a few weeks and have triathlons looming. I'll promise to only ride in aero when in the lead. Also, I don't intend to hammer, but just get some good miles in aero position. So if Fred and Mike would like to join, please do. If not, I'll do a solo tempo ride followed by a run afterwards. Here are the details:

Straining Vital Organs on Apparatus Inaugural Ride
Where: The Coffee Shop Formerly Known as Caribou
When: 6:00AM
Route: Winds out of the NW - Arlington or Ft Calhoun loop
Distance: 40 miles

For those of you who will really be straining vital organs during this race weekend: have fun and race well. Katherine and I'll be cheering for you!

Bicycle races are coming your way
So forget all your duties oh yeah!
Fat bottomed girls they'll be riding today
So look out for those beauties oh yeah
On your marks get set go

That one's for you, Bryan.


  1. Whoops, late response. I'm officiating the races this weekend, so no riding for me. Ugh. Woulda been nice too. It's perfect weather out there.

  2. as promised -- vital organs have been strained. Thanks for coming out last night.
