Broken Ribs?

Hi. Yeah, I know it's been awhile.

Here are some of the things that have been happening:

-Business is still cranking. It will be our best year ever! Thanks everyone!
-I took a week off and went on vacation. I had the opportunity to do a ton of fishing... striped bass (rockfish), bluefish, fluke, tuna and even shark fishing for the first time. It was great! My father-in-law caught a 300lb blue shark. Sweet.
-The Wilderness 101 mountain bike race came and went. I had to skip it this year because of work. Trevor, Timmy and John participated and reported the hardest race of their lives.
-Raced the Cranky Monkey series instead and had a nasty crash. I think that I broke a rib but I am to stubborn to go to the doctors and get an x-ray. So I have just been resting.

Team Family Bike Shop is preparing to race in the 24 Hours of Allamuchy mountain bike race, August 26-27. It is a team relay race. Our team(Trevor, Timmy, Bob and myself) have a good chance of doing well. Hopefully we can get a podium finish.

The best riding of the year is coming up right now! After the crazy heat wave we've had the temperature is finally cooling off and the humidity is dropping. All of the end of season century rides are starting up at the end of August, culminating with the Seagull Century in Salisbury, MD on October 7.

If you need any work done on your bike before then come on in and mention this post for $10 off a tune up!

Thanks for steering me toward the Giant TCR Comp 2. I'd say the bike rocks, but that wouldn't do it justice. The full carbon and sweet geometry make it just eat the miles up, and the tiring road vibrations and bumps don't wear me out half as much as they did when I was riding my old alu-framed bike. The less the road beats up on me, the more I can beat up on it. (Yeah, that's the song us old guys with sore backs sing). I'm blown away by how good it is - it's that rare piece of equipment that actually makes you faster, by making it *a lot* less stressful and fatiguing to put in high volume and high effort base & build training mileage. Can't wait to try it on the upcoming centuries.

Good luck at Allamuchy.
