Big Thanks!

I forgot to send this out earlier in the week, but I wanted to extend my thanks to Noah from KC-Bike.net for suggesting that JCBC invite me along to speak about bicycle commuting at their annual Banquet last weekend.  It was a good time, and I think we inspired some thought, got some good conversation going, and managed to keep almost everyone awake.  Not shabby.  It was nice to see a lot of familiar faces that I hadn't happened upon in a while, years in some cases.  I don't always get opportunities, being "car-light", to get to the organized evening and weekend club rides like I'd prefer - so it was neat to catch up again.  

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things now that we've reached the "meteorological end of winter", as was recently coined - fighting my way through February, always "fun"... 
Kicking off the beginning of March with a 200K permanent this weekend - just squeezing it into February to kick off another R-12 run - and taking along a couple of new RUSA members - this is their maiden voyage out beyond the 100-mile marker, so wish them luck!  

I might need a little of that luck, myself... first real distance since July.  It's still a mite chilly, but I'm ready to start the season and get back into a routine.

More to come, including the usual 200K wrap-up report... stay tuned!
