Eating up all my blog time


%^$$%##@ Surf City is eating up all my blog time.

I spent a very long lunch hour checking out another possible venue.

I like imagining cross courses and figuring out how to piece it all together.

I just wish there wasn't the complications of traffic, parking, goat heads, and laws of physics.

All this cross course imagining has been getting to me though. I passed a cemetary in Morgan Hill the other day, and all I could think of as I passed the rolling green tombstoned hill was "damn, that would be a fun cross course".
And it would.



I also just have to accept that no cross course will have everything. Everything is: plenty of parking, road, double track, whoop dedoos, grass, no traffic crossing the course, no duckie poo poo, no hyperdermic needles and broken 40ounces, lots of undulating hills, scrambly run ups, no poison oak or goatheads, electricity, bathrooms, trees, and all for cheap ninety cheap.

Sigh....

Damn I love cross season.

duckie poo poo is the grossest. East coast city park cyclocross is all about the duckie poo.


I was checking out this park in Morgan Hill. It looked very promising. I rolled up and down the little grassy knolls. And it took putting the bike in the car and smelling the funk, to realize that the green stuff on my tires was not all grass.

When marscat and I see some unknown area with cute roads that are small and off the beaten track, we always think of VeloBob and "wouldn't that would be a good VP race course". Funny how your mind gravitates to those type of things.

...but a cemetary, your are focused...

How about an urban cross race that incorporates the SC boardwalk? Now that would be a whoopdedoo!

Hard core racer style.

"another ... dead cow"?

Is that why Olaf grins like a maniac when asking me if I'm gonna' race cross?
