Oh, and I rode about 13 miles yesterday--to work and home. First ride since about October. I'm glad the weather (and new gloves and pants) allowed for it.

did 45 miles today, went down to Fiesta Island and did 3 time trial pace laps. On my way back, I crashed when I took a turn too fast, skidded on sand, then got stuck in the crack between 2 concrete slabs and ate shit.

No offense bro...but you need to do some handling drills or something.

It sounds like you have been diving in head first which is great (IIRC you had a post a while back about buying a bike, then you started hanging out with the college team, then you had get replace your bike because you destroyed it, then you broke something else...etc) but you gotta be careful.

Bike handling skills are built up slowly over time--and with careful practice and balance drills...even learning how to fall without hurting yourself.

My handling skills are actually fine, I just have shitty luck. I've actually only crashed twice, once during crit practice about 3 months ago and yesterday. The incident with my bike being destroyed was actually a testament to my handling skills seeing that I was able to stay up after my rear wheel locked up going 30+. The problem with my rear wheel was that I used a really shitty tube when I replaced my flat a couple days ago and during the Saturday group ride I went on, I somehow pinch flatted without even hitting any major bumps. I had to go an extra 4 miles to get to the regroup point to catch up with my buddy to fix it. I'm actually upgrading to Mens C's very soon since I've been doing well in my races. Also, every time I HAVE fallen, I've never hit my head and only land on my left side. Yesterday, all I got was a scrape on my elbow and a small tear in my shorts at the hip w/ some roadrash.

53 miles on a new route yesterday through 20mph gusts

I might see if I can fit a ride in this evening, since there'll be light out after work.

135km...huge headwind on the way out that seemed to have mostly died once I was halfway back
post #238 of 404
My new computer tells me I did 7.4 miles on my way to work today. Not sure if that's correct. Probably more accurate than Google maps, though.
