Espanola

It has only been seven months since my last post. Cyclocross season came and went. My successes were few, but in general I rode better in 2016 than I did in 2015. By the end of the season I was almost getting back into race shape, rolling head to head with teammate Rich Caramadre, at least for a few laps.




We spent the winter in Florida, and are still here now in late spring. For Florida, it is almost early summer. I can't blame the perfect weather for my lack of miles this year, but things are starting to turn around. I rode well over 100 miles this past week. Yesterday I rode 53 miles cyclocross fixed gear from Espanola back to the shanty. I have always wanted to ride the Old Brick Road, a 10-mile section of the original Dixie Highway, that was built in 1915. After about five miles it turned mostly to sand with a few bricks still visible now and again. I hit another mile or so of brick roads in East Palatka, then rode the Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail on the way home.



There will be more rides to come before we head back to Utah, so I will do my best to post more ride pictures.
