Yesterday while I was picking up my ride packet for the Hotter’n Hell 100 I was asked to participate in a study done by the good folks at UNT. I’m game. The pre-screen was easy enough, I have to do a 45 minute survey this afternoon and we will see. I am kind of excited.
Got my new Gatorskin tires and new tubes for the ride tomorrow. If things go as they have for the last few years, there will be no less than 20 flat tires in the first mile of tomorrow’s ride. I cannot understand why people will come from all over the United States and 30 foreign countries around the world to ride 100 miles in 100 degree heat with raggedy tires. There is a logic bomb there that has yet to go off.
One group of cyclists I would love to meet tomorrow is the transplant team from Houston that ride as the “Organ Grinders”, complete with really cool jerseys. In any case, looking forward to a great day, meeting new people and making a few new friends along the way. The blog tomorrow will be post ride so don’t look for it until, let’s see, finish line-3:30(Hopefully), 30 minutes to get to the car and get home, say hi to my lovely wife, shower and 2 hour nap, around 6:30pm, my time. Until then, then.
