Race to Anyplace?

I (Steve Marlette) participated in the Race to Anyplace at the US Steel Building today, which benefits the leukemia foundation. My groin hurts! …. Bad!

I joined a team from work to help fill in some spots. Our team participated on spin bikes with very little resistance. The race is based on miles, so the game is to spin as fast as you can for 15 minute intervals.

I ended up doing 4 intervals, three of them with only one rider in between! I now know how different spin bikes are from real bikes. It was still a fun event but it may be a few days until I can walk normally again. I also ran into a few familiar faces from Ag3r, ProBikes and UPMC teams.


Yep - The Race to Anyplace was pretty crazy.

I (Mark Briercheck) went down to the event with some of the folks from my gym. Steve was stuck on a spinner and I was on a Schwinn Airdyne. I'm not sure who was luckier. The Pro Bikes boys were on an airdyne as well. I'm a little sore today but at least I can walk.

Overall it was a pretty fun event! Maybe again next year, although I think the debate would be whether or not to sign up for a spin bike or an airdyne. Judging by the pain Steve is in...maybe the Airdyne!



Wild Ride

Saturday's sun prompted me...... Kirk Morrison, Rich Allen and Doug Frost to get out for a short ride...
...and a QUICK...
...and WILD ride it turned out to be!!!


Race for Humanity

Brian Hopkins competed in the Race for Humanity Road Race while spending time with his family in Florida. Read about his experience HERE


Riding the Deep Stuff

Went out again last night with Rich Allen and Doug Frost. Bummer about it was, the snow did not come down as heavy as forecast. BUT...as it turns out, there was plenty enough snow already on the ground to slow us down!
Wonder if I can get clearance to ride again tonight(?)!!!


Big Snow Night Ride

20+ inches of snow fell from Friday Noon until Saturday Noon... ...and what better way to enjoy the storm than from the saddle ...at night!
Kirk Morrison, Rich Allen and myself headed out Friday Night around 9:00 pm ...and had the world pretty much to ourselves.
Everything is pretty when covered with fresh powder.
By the time we got home it was after Midnight, with the snow so deep that even the smallest incline brought us to our knees ...'er, rather ...to our feet!!!
One advantage of the snow was that no kick stands were necessary to park our bikes!
The rest of the weekend was spent shoveling ...the driveway...the sidewalks ...the roof ...the deck ...and the little paths through the yard so the dogs to go "out" ...!!!
I am so sore I can hardly move : (
