With the shop being closed on Wednesdays for the winter and the darkness setting in early these days I took a different approach to cyclocross practice this week. A quick midmorning jaunt to Palos to ride the trails. It was beautiful out, great trails, not too much mud, and quiet, very quiet. It's great to get away from the city and the noise for a couple hours. Sold out of 9 ball diaries today! Rumors flying about new races for 2009? Oh man, oh man. I feel some double weekends going down for Chi cross cup 09!Nope not my cross bike but it has the same wheel size so it counts. 29er and belt drive, love the spot. Took 5 minutes to pressure wash it down after the ride, thanks everyone!!!
