back and forth

My two lives. My late night/early mornings life of mad crafty energy, where my fingers itch to create and my mild mannered day life of teaching, biking, tennis and the love of my life!

It IS about the bike!

So I'm not riding down the coast with BBob and gang either...hey, horary astrology said it was a baaad idea, and I had reservations and wanted to go for the wrong reasons anyway...but I have yet another, more local goal in mind.

Connected with a nice Vacaville roadie that has agreed to be a buddy in training - (another Sag, no less) and we have challenged each other to get over Cardiac and face off Mix Canyon. haha. I might get 1/2 mile up Mix, but still. I haven't explored that far abroad, really, and since it's around his home territory, I'll be able to get more 50-60ish mile rides in, since my max known route is closer to 44-48 miles.

edit: Mix Canyon near Vacaville, California. 7.7 course from Foothill road to top. 4.7 miles of climbing, 15% average, 23% near the top. Record time shared by Johnathan Vaughters and Chris Horner(yes, that Chris Horner), 33 min 27 sec.

Knitting is a great cure for the blues! In blues! Here it is:
I had dyed the yarn for a possiblity for the Sockapalooza, but ended up using the green. So I had a skein and a restless bent.

I've been riding a lot. About 85 miles in the couple of days. Tomorrow, an a.m. ride before I work the registration table for the July 4th Downtown Crit. Then meeting Nathanie to watch the Cat 1/2/3's race and have lunch. Then fireworks in the evening with friends.

I love the colors you dyed. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is all finished
