Cookie, Giggles and me-self are still thankful for the amazing support we received from Gumby and T.J. at last years Trans Iowa event. Our Friendship is solid and despite being faraway and full of commitments we do get a chance to see eachother and hang out. We were so glad to have arranged schedules and have met last time in the glorious state of Iowa. I know who my friends are and keep them close at heart.
Today we drove out to Campton Hills to see T.J. race cross on his Pugsley. As usual, the 4b field was packed to the gills with riders and there was a lot of Halloween costumes out there. The race went off and it was amazing to see T.J. race elbow to elbow on his almost 40lbs monster bike. The Husker Du tires almost took the lives of a couple of Newbies but they were smart enough to get the hell out of the way because T.J. was not slowing down.
It was a beautiful day for cross racing. It was clear, windy and crisp. We stayed there for a while and then headed to finish some errands. Congrats to a fine finish and I hope we can ride together soon.
I am trying to organize a ride from St. Charles heading north on the Fox river trail to Wisconsin and back in a day. We will ride cross bikes or whatever else you want. No drop rule, stops for Coffee and lunch. Dress warm and toasty! Target Date is November 10th. Also we are looking to hit Iowa for Mission #4 for Gravel. Ride could be 85miles or longer. Cookie and I have died on the 85milers so far. Keep in touch and don't let your meat loaf,
