April showers bring May flowers

Yeah. Too bad it's still March. So, showers (consisting of rain... not snow) just bring frowns to skiers, puddles to my driveway and leave me with a need to think up excuses on why I probably won't work on my "rainy day list" today, which is indeed a rainy day. See.

Never say never
All three of you that actually look at this bloggity thing probably remember me spewing about how I'm done racing. And for the most part, I am done racing. That doesn't mean, however, that one can't partake in some "organized cycling event" in which one pays to ride a predetermined route.... albeit with a number on the front of ones bike.
Event info here
Yeeeaaahhhhhh.... sooo, I just might have to check this one out. I mean, just look at the flyer. They don't even call it a race. It's oficially a "MTB ENDURANCE RIDE" I've heard lore of trails there that have a "mooreish" feel (as in, you'll want to ride more) and leave riders with a serious case of the permagrin. Mmmmm.... permagrin. Way I look at it, for $150 I'll get camping, breakfast, marked trail all day, at least three aid stations on course (free cookies!!), dinner and "craft beer" at the finish, then more camping. Depending on what's available at the aid stations, I could come out of this thing with a positive net gain from the buck fifty I'll spend on the entry. I really can't think of a better way to ride a new area with literally zero trail knowledge.
Will I win? Hell'z no! Shit, I might not even finish! I will, however, prolly get to ride some epic trail and surely meet some interesting folks.... ya always do at a bike race. See.
