2010 Racing season through Presbyterian Invitational

Been traveling a lot this season … just over 12,000 miles to be exact! Check out the map of all the places we have driven with one flight shown as well from Birmingham to Baltimore.

2010 racing season travels through Presbyterian Invitational (Aug 7)

Plus, 305 different commutes/commute routes on my bike totaling 5,000 miles in the Birmingham metropolitan area…

Snowy commute

The predicted snow materialized, and I got to enjoy a nice long commute home in the snow. It was sleeting pretty heavily mixed with the snowflakes so some of the downhills stung as the sleet bounced off your face. Check out the pics of me and my bike after the ride home… lovin’ it!

Amazing that even with all the ice, snow, and water on the battery pack, the magnet, and the head unit – the power meter still worked great! For all you Polar Powermeter experts I know that I need to raise the back end of the meter up – I just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. The only consequence at this point is that it reads too high when there is very little pressure on the chain. Otherwise, the readings are very consistent which is certainly what you are looking for in any good power meter.

The ride definitely started out fun and beautiful, but I was pretty cold and VERY wet by the end of the ride! The red in my face is probably from all the sleet bouncing off of it! Check out the accumulation of snow on my gloves.
