Home Sweet Home: Adjusting to Life in the Hood

So, I've been home for a couple weeks now. It's been a nice transition, there are things I miss about being in Europe, but overall it's been great to be back. I've started doing some real work for the HP Chrio-RPM Mortgage Cycling Team doing their blog and social media presence. I'm also working part time at a local shop, West End Bikes. The job is great! All I have to do is hang around bikes all day, and help people find the ride of their dreams. I've been riding a lot too, it's been great to get back to the old roads. All of this has made it hard to find time to do my own bloggy internet stuff, but I'll try and get some stuff up when I can.

Last weekend I did an Uphill TT in Corvallis, Oregon, about two hours outside of Portland. It was a challenging and fun race. And although I didn't do as well as I'd hoped I did about midfield for the mens 4/5. Given that it was a race that only attracted climbing nuts, I consider that a decent performance.

At the end of the month I'll be doing the Baker City Cycling Classic, a three day amateur stage race. That will be a great test of my form and is of what I'm training for at this point. Other than that, I'll just have to sneak off to whatever races I can. My schedule is pretty busy at this point, and now I have to dela with races conflicting with my work schedule. But, I'll make the most of it and get as much bike time in as I can!

Stay tuned.
