The Fuzz Finally Got Out! -- Log

Yes, today was the first day this year the fuzz got out. What fuzz you might be asking yourself? Why, the fuzz on my legs!

It was finally warm enough i left off the leg warmers, and opted instead for just the knee warmers. Very nice to be seeing this weather and exposing a little skin to the sun.

Took my buddy Andy out, who just got that sweet used Cannondale. He's training for triathlons, hopefully i can pass on some good cycling skills. Anyone know if you're allowed to draft in 'mass start' triathlons? (ie, not a time trial)

I remember watching the Olympics triathlon, and it was almost comedic how these guys were riding...there was one dude who was literally switch-backing up a hill! Most odd tho was that no one was working with anyone else, and so there was little drafting.. I'm guessing maybe there's a rule against this? Anyone?

Looks like Andy's got Monday's and Thursday's available for riding, so i'll prolly cruise out with him. A recovery ride on Monday is perfect, and maybe we'll do some stop-starts on Thursdays to throw in a few excercises that'll benefit me.

After Andy peeled off to go home, i went down by the water to put on a few extra miles, and ended up behind Toyota Sierra and motorpaced for about 10mins, really nice to fly along at 50kph. Thank you kind driver! =)

Heya Fredrik!

Victoria is the warmest place in Canada, we only have a few days of snow (if at all) and it hardly dips below freezing.

Absolutely amazing weekend...nice rides all 'round, plus went rock climbing yesterday...hope to get some pics up. =)

Sorry it's so crummy there! I guess you don't have a covered velodrome anywhere, eh?
