Usually, hibernating mammals put on weight in preparation for the long slumber of winter. Humans tend to put on weight while hibernating... well, I have at least. I have recently found that riding a bike is just like riding a bike, i.e. I still remember how. YAY! Throughout the last 3 months or so, I've probably logged a whopping 20 hours on the bike. Some year, I'll work on holding some semblance of consistency... or at least do a real winter training program. That would mean not getting caught up on the rest of life though. Life and work have been a bit all consuming lately.
On another note. I need to sell a car. It's time to retire my 1996 Saturn SL1, because we've come into another vehicle with less mileage. The Saturn has manual transmission with 110,000 miles. Single owner well maintained. I've also got a thule roof rack with two bike carriers. I haven't used the carrier much with the car, because I can fit a bike and a bunch of wheels in the back without the rack.
If you're interested, or know anyone who is, give me a shout in the comments. I do need to clean the CX mud out of the back still though... after the cleanup, I'll be posting it on the car sites.
When does racing season start again? Time to get the legs back on.
