Atomic Bombshell

Road Trip

March 13th, 2008

Bunny MascotWe’re hitting the road one weekend after another in March. Last weekend we went up the California coast to participate in the Solvang Century. It was my first time riding over 100 miles in a single day, and boy was I beat when it was over. Seven hours of riding, and a significant stretch of it fighting strong headwinds on uphill climbs. Looking back, I’m proud of that accomplishment, but it’s not something I’d enjoy doing on a regular basis.

(The bunny on my handlebars helps though.)

Normally, I prefer 30-50 mile rides while surrounded by ten to twenty of my other road biking buddies, and of course, the one and only Jordan. I’m stoked that we’re once again enjoying daylight savings time (also known as cycling season). My office life sucks, but it’s made more tolerable when I can ride off the stress after work.

This weekend we’re heading out for yet another road trip. We’re gearing up for Las Vegas where we’ll be meeting a few of my favorite peeps on earth! I’m so excited. Good thing I’ve been so busy lately, otherwise I’d be obsessing over what to pack, dreaming about the fun we’ll have, and stressing that I’ll be too shy to enjoy it all.

As it stands, I’m worried about not having appropriate shoes for all the walking required in that town, so I wrote to Manolo the Shoeblogger for advice. To my great pleasure, he wrote about it and made suggestions. I’ll try and head over to a nearby Cole Haan boutique later tonight and find some of those Nike Air heels he recommends.

See you gals soon! XOXOX

    You must be in excellent shape riding that much. My legs would feel like jell-o after just a few miles.

    Do you know how bummed out I am that MissPrissy and I didn’t get to meet up with you and the Ninja?! It seems like our schedules never quite fit together… I guess I’ll have to see ya at Blogasm v.2

    🙁 This is my sad face!

    So, what shoes did you end up wearing? 🙂

  • 13. MissMeliss  |  March 23rd, 2008 at 10:56 pm

    Totally lost track of Blogasm – wanted to go, too. Hope it was a blast.

  • 14. Peggy  |  March 24th, 2008 at 4:50 am

    Wanted to stop in real quick and say that I hope you had a wonderful Easter 😉

    I wish I could go to things like BlogHer and that Blogasm and maybe even WordCamp but I am so money-less it’s nuts.

    As an ex-bike racer, I KNOW how it feels after you ride a Hundo, and as a “Hundo Virgin” you are TOAST! – CONGRATS!!! As a sport rider 7 hours is very respectable! If it was hilly/ish, it was VERY respectable!!! Just remember… DRINK WAAAAAAAAAAY more water than you think you need BEFORE-DURING-and-AFTER. Electrolyte drinks are also a must, and a couple BANANAS for the potassium (Powerbars, etc.) will help GREATLY. Be Safe, Keep the RUBBER SIDE DOWN, Helmeted ALWAYS! All political B.S. aside, we live in the most AMAZING country, and a bicycle is an awesome way to see it!

    Psst… Donde esta? On a long bike ride? 😉 Come back, already.

    My friend Tasha was there, LOL. Hope y’all had a good time!
