Old School Chums

This is the 1982 Providence Country Day Varsity Cycling Team.

This was my senior year. My second year on the team.

Shortly after Solo chided me for not posting an obituary lately I found out Fred Cusick died yesterday.

Fred was the voice of hockey when I was a kid. Fred and Derek Sanderson are still my favorite Bruins announcers. Even throwing Dave Shea in to the booth with them couldn't screw it up.

Summer is functionally over.

I missed my major objective of the summer when I opted to not go to D2R2. It was a tough but good decision. I just do not have the fitness required to enjoy the ride.

I did manage to lose 18 pounds and ride, to date, over three times the miles I did in 2008.

So far I have a bit over 102 hours on the bike and another 30 on the trainer for 2009.

Piddly numbers for bike racers and even keen recreational riders but a world of difference from the inactivity of the last few years.

I'm slow but I'm riding.

See ya on the road.
