Although I never really stop my bike commuting during the year, the cycling season has officially started with my first criterium of the year completed. I tried a new race this year: http://www.wednesdaynightcrit.com/
I needed to scope the course so I tried the C race and got third place. So, what the heck! I did the B race after that and had to drop out with the "5 laps to go" signal (yes, that is when they really turn it up another notch!). Overall a great workout with 27 miles at a 22+mph pace. The season is in full swing!
Go ride - or race or anything on two wheels!
