Road Diaries

On Tucson

I went to Tucson to train for the first time in 1994. That hit me a few weeks into my trip this year; it had been 20 years since my first winter there. Since then I've been a snowbird in a lot of other places: Gainesville, Tallahassee, Orlando, Tampa, Austin, Athens, San Diego, Winston-Salem. But eventually, once I was a full-time rider again (and single), I started going back to Tucson every year. Of all the factors (weather, terrain, riding safety/accommodations, community), Tucson may not be perfect in any one area, but it has the highest overall score.

Holy shit, March!

It's been a while since I've been able to blog, so I'm going to take the easy way out and just string together all the photos on my phone from the past month. It's been three months since I left home. Three. Long. Months. I still have a bunch of stories from the 'cross races in January I need to tell, and hopefully I'll get to it. But now that I'm finally back in Boston, it seemed like it was time to do a little review.

First, beer:


Wilmington, Savannah, Samsula, January 9, 2010

Man, I've had this blog entry half done all week! The Cycle-Smart January Cyclo-Cross Tour is under way, and if I don't blog about it, it didn't really happen, right? But when you're spending three days in the car, racing three days in a row, trying to work any time you can sit still with an internet connection, the time to stop and reflect and report on what your up to is limited. It's why I rely on Twitter so much. I can dump all the voices in my head out through my phone, and into the world.

So at least, for now, I'm going to use the photos I took to get you up to speed.
