Does this mean I’m a bike geek?

Sprightly, is not a word I would use to describe my rise from bed at 5am this morning.  Although, I have to say, my enthusiasm is still tipping over.   So much so that it appears I find myself going to spectate at the 2012 UCI Track Cycling World Championships this evening.  Now those are words I never, never thought I would write.

I promise I’m not a bike geek.   At least I don’t think so.

But back to the point: I made it out for my first training ride this morning.  Every second was hell. Every. Second.  In the end, I was riding for two hours all up, around a beautiful but painful lap of undulating hills and descents.  Exhausted and crutch-battered, I made it into work, where the MD asked me why I was “walking funny” (what the hell must he have been thinking at that moment?!).  Oh sweet, solid-saddle joy.

And I’m told it gets even better. Fabulous. Rawhide 2012.
