So I decided that I would try this whole blogging thing out as I hit the road this summer for different biking events....that way people know where I am, what I am doing, if I am still alive and random stuff! Right... cause thats cool!??!
So obviously that time of the year again when I hit the road and am constantly traveling from state to state trying to be the next big thing on a mountain bike.....
On Thursday I headed to Utah. My bike bag was 64 lbs., the lady at the Reno aiport tried to convince me that if it was under 50 I could have not had to pay the weight fee (geezzz that would of been nice!..but we all know that bike boxes cost an arm and a leg to send through airlines)..after a bunch of people watching in the Las Vegas airport (because of a delayed flight) I was fetched from the curb by my best friend.
We went to an art fair in downtown salt lake... probably the oddest thing EVER!
Later we decided to go on a ride.. just a nice pedal around the U. Well that nice little pedal ended up costing me $306 because while riding gently over a speed bump I managed to break
- housing and cables
- 7 spokes
- kink my chain
- tore off derailer holder.
pretty fabulous I know....so the next day was supposed to be spend up in Park City at the event pre riding and such...but instead I found myself in Salt Lake City waiting for Contender bike shop to patch up the broken pieces.
I ALMOST didnt make it to registration.... but...note the word ALMOST.
I was #811. I was hoping it would be lucky.
