For many, this weekend is the COP's Columbus Fall Challenge but for an elite few, it is instead the Aspen Gran Fondo. A seat opened up on the 6 seater VW bus that Marty is driving and he offered it to me but 100 miles, 12,000' of climbing and all I have on my legs is 67 miles as my longest ride for many weeks? Love to go but geesh, that would be suffering on a level I'd rather not visit. Marty, Steve Fields, Dave Chesrown, Philippe, maybe Luke are going. Apparently the event does not track overall time but instead times the hardest climbs.
I coerced one of Marty's personal business cards from him. Intentionally I have obscured the details because little people like you should not know these things but with this card, it will open doors heretofore unavailable to the unwashed, like me. I will start with the Hooters at Easton and work my way up. A busy weekend for me to be sure.
I was informed that fashion rules require that cyclists wear a sock with a 4-5" cuff. Unsure of what I use, glancing down I was relieved to discover I am fashionable, at least with this one item. Billy C is likewise in fashion but....
....Jon Morgan is not. Look at those tiny foo-foo socks he wears. He was in the running for "Best Dressed Cyclist of the Year" but not after this. Well, not sure where or if I will ride this weekend. I am obligated to be at CFC and have been invited to a cookout afterwards on Saturday but don't know.
