Sweet Bike - Gonna blow fools away next season

R09 Mojave8 0 Black LRG



And if you buy that I have some ocean front property in Arizona I got for sale too.

But I did get a sweet ride, hurts my though. Man I can't believe people actually ride these things for hours and hours. Just painful. Anywho I am down about 7 pounds so far and working on the last 15. I am targeting 160 for next season!!!!

Spending about 1:30 minutes in the gym with a trainer and about 1 hour on the bike. He has me doing alot, I mean alot of training very similar to speed skating. Lots of leg, core, and lower back stuff plus the typical upper body stuff I have always done.

I have lake Georgetown about a mile from my house and it has sweet trails around it. Nice 1 mile warm up and cool down on the way there and back.

Anywho, you fools betta watch out!

If you ever make into Austin w/ the bike, let me know. Walnut Creek park is sweet. Great mix of intermediate trails w/ some difficult sections. (Marked w/ black diamonds below). 13 miles of well-marked trails. You can do the enitre loop of 13 miles in about 1.5 hrs...

Try putting in 25+ miles on one of these and see how your ace feels!!! Defenitely good for on-moto endurance though...

Get some high quality cycle shorts and some chamois butter for your .
I can't believe the difference that good shorts and the cream can make in longer 50+ mile riders.
I love my Orbea road bike.

Terry Hershey park has some really fun trails if you are on the southwest side of town. Used to ride and run those trails all of the time. There is even a spot in the trail right around the wilcrest area where some guy has made a little BMX park in the woods. This guy put A LOT of work into it; all kinds of jumps and crazy .

Sweet bike! A couple of people have suggested the padded shorts I am gonna have to give that a try!

Did chest and triceps today and a good 10 miles around Lake Georgetown. Freakin is getting better but I find myself trying to stay off the seat as much as possible. I also considered getting a padded gel seat.. .Any experience with those?

Will do! I usually ride after work in the afternoons, maybe we could meet up one day after work? I don't like riding alone but I have gotten used to it. I have never been to walnut creek but have heard it is pretty sweet!
