Time to move on

I’ve spent a whole week in the Rincon Valley. I’ve ridden the AZT along there many times. I’m becoming familiar with the amenities in the area (post office, library, Safeway, etc). Too familiar--it is time to shove off and see another place. Why the hell do you bother to live in a cramped little trailer if you’re just going to stay in one place?

I’m off to the Pima Valley-Catalina-Oracle area. Gonna probably go set up at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo venue for a while. Get a first taste of the race course, check the scenery there, maybe spent a little more time on lonely desert country roads.

Definitely time to step up the training a bit. I’ve pretty much been trying to do long-ish rides, but with no intensity. Just getting used to riding a bike again. I’d say that’s done. I’ve now got less than 5 weeks to race day. Time to go to bed tired for a while.
