If you don’t mind getting blown off the road, cycling has been great lately.  However, some of us object to riding sideways down the road when we’re trying to make the front tire go straight. 

The weatherman says we may have a break this Sunday afternoon.   The forecast isn’t great for Saturday.  Usually Sundays are leisure rides, but if enough of the go-fasters show up, we’ll take two groups.  Meet at the Pryor Creek Recreation Center at 1:30 p.m.  As always, rain or temps below 60 cancel. 

The Claremore group is scheduling weekly called rides on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 departing from Bike About Bike Shop in downtown Claremore (next to the railroad tracks near the gazebo).  Janice Whittaker at Bike About says we are more than welcome to join them.   Also, don’t forget to support your local bike shop…and theirs is the most local until Wayne retires and decides to open his shop! 

And speaking of Spring Fever, Glen sent me information on Tulsa Area Triathlete “dry run”  for those who would like to practice for the Claremore Spring Fever tri on April 19 (and I know several of us are going to do that).  The practice is Saturday, April 11 at the Claremore Rec Center at 8 a.m.  Eric, from TAT will give the newbies a demo on making transitions as well.  Put it on your calendar and I’ll send more on this later as details become available. 

And last but not least, the call for cyclists to participate in the RSU parade in Claremore has been cancelled.  Too hard for many of us to leave work to participate.

And as usual….Here’s the bicycle quote for the day

Marriage is a wonderful invention: then again, so is a bicycle repair kit.
