More YouTube Cycling Fun

I have no idea what's going on, but it was shot at the Philly race in June this year and the guys are wearing cycling shorts.

Dude, WTF?

Basically Riding

Rode 25 miles last Friday, 50 on Saturday, took a day off on Sunday and then rode 30 today. With the weather warmer for at least five or six more days, I should reach a pretty decent volume for this time of the year. I need at least two more 50+ mile rides before next Saturday, when I'll be out of town and off the bike.

New team kits come in this week. I'll be sure to model them for everyone.

What The Hell

Periodically this blog gets kind of popular. The hits start picking up mostly during Grand Tours when I've traditionally posted lots of stuff about the pro peloton. July is a particularly busy month, with 70-100 hits per day (wow). The winter months, as you can imagine, are pretty dead. I don't post much, people don't visit's more or less a ghost blog.

With this in mind, would someone like to explain to me why Peloton Fodder had over 350 hits on November 26? There were less than 30 visitors the day before!

Thank goodness all activity has returned to normal (20-30 per day). I wouldn't want to think I had an actual audience...

Gym Progress

As my focus shifts from the gym back to the bike, I'll take a second to share a current weight lifting status report:

Body Weight: 175
Bench Press: 205
Squat: 275
Leg Press: 420

Not too bad for a skinny little twerp like me. With just 11 weeks until the start of the new road racing season, I can now shift to base riding and away from super heavy lifting. Time to slim down and speed up.

If anybody needs me, I'll be on the road somewhere freezing my ass off. Ah, the joys of winter training...
