Wow, that was quite a long drive! No stops, no food, sole focus was get to Andy’s quick! And that I did, I managed to turn a 6hr 9min predicted drive into a 4hr 55min Ludicrous speed adventure. Not the most beautiful route, tons of the same view the whole way, and plenty of rain to drown a crocodile. But I made it! I think I strolled into Andy and Heathers just a hair after 11PM. Just in time for some brews and storytelling. What an interesting 30hrs!
Waking up Sunday morning to a nice downpour was less than ideal for a mother’s day, but what can you do? Everybody woke up, was in cheery moods, and ready to celebrate! Heather had picked out a nice restaurant for brunch, and so graciously extended the invite for me to join. Brunch was off the charts, we had applewood smoked bacon, donuts, some other things that were like donuts but had a fancy name and had lots of powdered sugar, it was a pre-diabetics sugar freaks dream! Thanks again to Andy and Heather for allowing me to join them for their mothers day celebrations!
After brunch was the bike fit! After all the donuts, bacon, and bloody marys, I was pretty full and not looking forward to getting on a trainer to ride, but knowing that I was one step closer to racing on the CD.01, I was able to suck it up. Little did I know I was walking right into a buzz saw. Andy didn't inform me that I was going to be doing a bunch of serious intervals in order to find a dialed in fit. UHO!
All anger aside, that Dynamic Fit Unit (DFU) is unreal! This thing reminds me of the willy wonka elevator that goes every which way. You can move the seat up and down, forward and back, angle it, adjust the headset up and down, as well as the angle. And Andy, being the sly cat he is, felt like a funny guy, moving me around like I was remote controlled! I did not see the humor in this.
Mad Mad thanks to Andy and Heather for hosting me last weekend, allowing me to invade their Mother’s Day parade, and thanks to Hub for everything they have done with my bike. Huge appreciation and gratitude to all who have helped out in the process. I am very grateful!
