Drink Up!

And if you're out exercising, you should be drinking even more!

Testing my set-up for the Roadmelt ride to Yosemite.
So, here's the deal. I'm riding my bike from the Inland Empire to Yosemite with a small group of guys. The ride is called the Roadmelt and it's purpose is to support the Snowmelt organization.

Here's a little info about the ride:

The Snowmelt - Roadmelt Bicycle Expedition 2012
This year we have decided to take on a bicycle expedition like no other. Keeping in the spirit of The Snowmelt, this expedition will partly focus on an environmental issue that affects us all. This summer our journey will take us from the coast of Southern California along the waterways, north to the source of California’s water. Over approximately eight days we will cycle 500 miles to San Francisco and then east to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. This expedition will be accompanied by a civil engineer, biochemist, nationally ranked cyclists, and The Snowmelt founder and leader of the 2011 Denali expedition. The goal will be to film this expedition in order to create a documentary that will relay both an environmental message focusing on sustainability and our impact from the overuse of water. The film will also document the journey and emotions of riding a bicycle 500 miles through sometimes desolate and remote areas of California.

Tuesday Night World Championships

The calm before the storm.
I've never really liked the title, "Tuesday Night World Championships" for our weekly Sunset circuit training ride here in Redlands. To me, that title has a negative connotation to it, or sounds sarcastic, like people take it as serious as a Pro Tour rider would take the actual World Championships. Don't get me wrong; people do take the Sunset ride serious. There's no rainbow jersey on the line, but bragging rights are almost the next best thing. Personally, I've always taken the ride seriously. It's the one day a week that I can consistently stomach doing hill intervals. And we all know that if you're not doing hill intervals, you're likely to go nowhere when it comes to bike racing. So, come on out on Tuesday night and do some hill intervals with us, if you can stomach it...
