The time change has come, and conditions for riding after work have been excellent. Grab some friends, head out and ride!

Nothing beats crushing gravel with a couple of rad ladies. So happy they could make it for the ride!
One of my non-race bike goals for 2012 was to be able to carry all my own gear for a camping trip — Mission Accomplished. Another was learning to ride rollers, checked off in February, and tonight I unwittingly checked off a third. While taking a mellow ride through Wilderness, I successfully bunny hopped a gap in the ground under the Warlick Bridge. I’ve practiced bunnyhopping without obstacles, never actually applied it successfully in a situation where it was useful. Looks like it’s time to come up with a few more goals…it’s only March!
Oh yeah, and I finished that 10k trail run in an hour and eight minutes, 11:02 pace. Not bad for a non-runner — I’m pretty sure that’s the farthest I’d ever run in my life — and I even had fun!

Yep, that’s me, sporting the “bike dork in a running race” look. All leg and goofy tan lines, Sheclismo pride blazing.
