California Love

This past weekend I was finally able to get out and have a good, enjoyable ride. I didn't go very far due to time constraints but I made it to the end of the Murdoch trail before I turned around. I am so ready for some singletrack. I still haven't taken my new bike on a real trail ride yet that didn't feature frozen ground or ice and snow. I am thinking that opportunity should be just around the corner.

In other news, after spending all of last week at home, I am again on travel for work. This week I am learning about composite airframe structure design at UCLA. I have to admit, I've said a lot of bad things about Los Angeles in the past, but this part of the city is beautiful. Its hard not to be caught up in the glitz and glamour of it all.

Everyone who knows me well, knows that I am making eating well a priority this week. Expect posts in the coming days with some details. I have found some great inspiration in this area, and its time to get out and eat...and learn a new technical skill.

Eating well while traveling? You'll have to tell me more...I can't imagine.

Put the Racing Ralphs on the El Mar this weekend. Let's find some trails soon.

Robb,
I don't mean eating healthy, I mean eating the good stuff.

You'll have to let me know what you think of the RRs. The combination of low weight and volume is unparalled.

Are you planning to race on the 5th?

Still planning to race...may pick up a tent and camp out so I don't have to drive in the AM.

Hope the dirt's dry enough soon...I love the road bike and the gravel, but this is getting ridiculous...must find a trail...

The RR's are huge...can't wait to test 'em out. I think I'm gonna love 'em.

As a side note, I think I'm going to sell the Reba I picked up this winter. If you hear of anybody looking for one, let me know...brand new...never even got it installed.
