Ken Woods Memorial Road Race

This past weekend was the Ken Woods Memorial Road Race in Cannon Falls, MN. This race has become a staple in the Minnesota racing scene and, for many, signifies the official start to the road racing season. The 21-mile loop encompasses rough roads, wide open farmland, and plenty of wind.

2012 in 10,000 Miles

This past year has truly been the best year of my life. I had some amazing opportunities, met a ton of new people, and improved my overall health and happiness. I owe most of this to cycling. Cycling has become the most important thing in my life and consumes my work life, home life, and recreation. At the beginning of 2012, I set two goals for myself for the year: Ride 10,000 miles and drop 40 pounds. I am happy to say that I can check both goals off.

This was also my first year racing, both road and cyclocross, and I have to say, it went better than I thought it would. While I might not have been winning races left and right, I always finished, I never finished last, and I always had fun. I was lucky to have had the support of a brand like Foundry Cycles to help me out as I entered the world of racing. Without their support and their bikes, my year would have been much more difficult.

I know that 2013 will be just as good of a year, if not better. My mileage goal for the year has been upped to 12,500 miles. This will definitely be a challenge, but it’s one that I am more than ready to take on. I am beyond excited for what 2013 has in store for me. See you on the road! IMG_0987 Continue reading

Rapha just released their latest film from the Rapha Continental project. I have to say, I think this one is my favorite film from this year’s contributions to the project. There is a perfect blend of busy, city riding and long, get-lost-on-country-roads type riding. Go here to read about the ride.

The Weekend

This weekend was busy. I had some friends from Chicago in town playing a show on Saturday night that were staying with me so I didn’t make it to the cyclocross race on Sunday. I did still find time to ride though.
