Spring is upon us and even though I am excited about the prospect of warmer weather, leaving winter behind also means that my Melbourne cyclocross season is almost over. I could venture to Lysterfield or out of the state with the DDCX contingency heading to Adelaide but the reality of a looming thesis deadline means the Victorian Cyclocross Open will be my last race of the season. Bummer.
I just don't feel ready to hang up the pink flames until next year. There are a few reasons for this:
- I missed DDCX round 2 on account of being in Montreal (see above) so I don't feel I filled my fun quota for the season,
- The North American CX season is kicking off and I am getting inspired all over again by Heidi Swift's excellent blog Grit & Glimmer,
- The "enabler" has been at it again and I have a new cross frame on the way. Squeel!
So if you, like me, are unwilling to let go or if you were watching from the sidelines in 2011 and want to get amongst it in 2012, get in touch. We could arrange some group rides, skills sessions - whatever you like. But not before I get the evil thesis monkey off my back at the end of October. If you would like to do something before then I can put you in touch with other keen beans. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
OK, back to work (read watching Lucinda Williams on you tube).
