This weekend is Transiowa and my goals are the same as the last time I went in 2010; have fun, ride hard.
This time I am all alone. J-No and Dukek both backed out so I am driving down by myself. No one seems to have space so I am left to figure out sleeping arrangements for myself. Not wanting to pay for a hotel room by myself, I think I may have an uncomfortable night sleep in my car. Nobody wants me.
This will be attempt #4.
#1 was the very first edition and I was unprepared and not in proper shape for the crazy headwinds. 85 miles in I DNF'd.
#2 My rear der completely came apart 55 miles in. I tried and tried to single speed it, but no luck.
#3 No one technically finished because of the weather. Parts of the race left a bitter taste in my mouth. As long as I have a functioning bike and cue cards, my intention is forward progress no matter.
So wish me luck, wish ill will, but looks like I will be fending for myself.
To J-No and Dukek, you are dead to me.
