USA Procycling challenge

Long time no post,but really, I’ve been training and getting some work done before I leave for Africa, in two weeks now. I thought I would post up while I await Hurricane Irene, which is passing directly over my house in about 24 hours. There is a lot going on, including the first USA Procyling Challenge in Colorado, which ends tomorrow. This looks like a real success for year one. Good racing, great scenery, very knowledgeable crows like the Tour of California. Congratulations to the organizers on this one.


Reflections on my first 14 er

I am just back from Boulder CO, and my first 14er experience, on Mt Yale. I had to head out earlier than I was going to, and missed a chance to climb Longs Peak with Alan Arnette. That would have been amazing, but Mt Yale was amazing enough. I’ll post details and some thoughts later tonight. The Kili climb is a mere 6 weeks away!
