    This weekends adventures... non Revit related. =)

    Got out on my bike early Saturday morning. I turned 30, but that happened to be the same day as the DFW Tour de Cure, a charity ride for the Ammerican Diabetes Association. Sooooo, i talked (guilted) Kelly in to partaking in a 62 mile ride with me, since it was my birthday. The ride started with a lap around Texas Motor Speedway, which was kind of awesome.

    Cool pics That would be so fun to ride on a speedway....had to be more fun (sarcasm) trying to stay upright on the curves...

    Got myself a Yakima Sparetime yesterday and installed today so I can take my bike with me to Butte/Three Forks this week...won't be doing the miles you did...but I have a few 50+ rides I hope to do next month.

      Reminds me a bit of the Alpenrose Velodrome. Steepest bank in the US at 43 degrees. Weird feeling at speed looking seemingly straight down 15' to the infield!

          Aaron, just FYI, there is a velodrome in Frisco. You should check it out. I prefer riding half pipes and bowls in skate parks. Jumping things is more fun than riding in a straignt line

          Get the hell outta here, Beck has cycling jerseys!!?? :laugh:

            I already did my time jumping things, doing Downhill at Plattekill in New York State. I actually find the road riding much more enjoyable. Thanks for the heads up, i will definetely check out the velodrome in Frisco!

            Dude, Beck has EVERYTHING. LOL.

                I wish we were able to finish ou r 62 mile ride in the Buffalo TdC. We got to mile 52 when they shut the ride down due to lightning and rain. Of course that was only 5 miles after I took a pretty nasty spill in the middle of a 26mph pace line... and I had no video of that

                Grats on your ride, and turning 30. You're not too far behind me
