Happy New Years (...again)!

This is the same post copied from my LiveSTRONG blog in order to determine which site I will use for ongoing posts.

So, I have been wondering if it would be worth my while to write a blog.  I have no aspirations of becoming an internet phenom like the Fat Cyclist.  I really don't know if people would be interested in the angry exploits of an engineer that likes to ride his bike.

The thought of writing came to me over the holiday, when I was watching Julie & Julia with my wife.  I saw it was a way to vent, and perhaps destress myself after an annoyingly long day at work.  I have been doing such via facebook, but maybe this would be more interesting.  I know I am a little (way?) late jumping on the blog train, but saw LiveSTRONG has the option and decided to give it a go.

Several of my online friends have blogs, and update them (semi-) regularly, so here it goes.  I will try to post once or twice a week, when the mood strikes me.

I will try to keep things mostly about mountain biking.  It shouldn't be too hard to do, as I am pretty involved with the whole MMBA thing.  This is also the start of my second season racing, and my first season training.

Last year, I rode my bike.  That was the training.  Ride on Mondays with the group, maybe Thursday at Anderson, and race on the weekend.  No computers, no heart rate monitors, no plan.  2011 will be just the opposite.

In 2011 I will be racing in the singlespeed sport class for CPS as well, so I will no longer have an advantage over the slow geared folks, stay tuned to see how it goes.
