fall riding

It’s that smell in the air.  A crisp splash of air that hits your face.  The golden leaf’s falling from the trees as it makes a chaotic blend of yellow orange and brown swirls that you pass on the ground.  Fall is the best time of year for riding.  For some it’s the time of year where you forego your usual training regiment for the polar opposite.  For others its the time of cow bells and 32c tires.  But for everyone its the time for enjoying riding your bike with your friends.   It’s pretty awesome outside, and you should get out and enjoy it before the full swing of the winter holidays comes.  

10/21

In an attempt to vent my angst and excess energy, i hope to write about some random stuffs.  first off, this time of year is super hard for me.  Off season training and school has been kicking my butt.  The time i get to ride outside has been a blessing, and because of that i have treated myself to an exceptional cool weather kit from Castelli (thanks @mikesbikes).  

The privilegio for your top paired with nanoflex bib short have provided me with excellent comfort for the cooler days of the past few weeks of october.  The nanoflex bibs shorts are a stand out because the inside of the bibs are fleeced lined and the outside is water resistant.  This paired with some leg warmers is the perfect combination for the foulest months that northern california has for us.  Don’t get stuck inside this winter, get these bibs and liberate your self.  Also, Castelli does a great job at offering proper race cut for riders that do not fit the club/american cut.  So if you have a hard time finding a jersey that fits, much like me, then i think you should give castelli a spot on your short list of apparel companies. 

These next coming months will start to show some of the winter base miles, post two-months of weight training.  Compared to last year i have noticed a higher degree of fitness this time around.  I can only hope that this will be a good precursor to a stellar next season.  

I’ll try to keep this updated as much as possible.

DO YOU PUT OUT SICK WATTS?!?

DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW?!?

Some new t-shirts were just born - SICK WATTS, in your choice of powermeter. Printed in Portsmouth, NH at Black Sheep Design on Next Level shirts. Designed, as always, by Ryan White and inspired by Steve Hopengarten.

They will be with me at GP Gloucester tomorrow, where you can buy them for $20 (cash or credit or PayPal).

On Monday, they will be on Metallic Poutine for ordering.

Shoot me an email (slamthatstem@gmail.com) to coordinate, tweet at me (@slamthatstem), or stop by the Pedal Power team tent. I’ll be at the race from 6:30 a.m. until after the Elite men’s race. I will probably spend time in the beer tent. Otherwise, I’ll tweet my location when I’m somewhere for a while.

Look, Larry.  Have you ever heard of Vietnam?
