OK, I don’t follow professional bicycle racing very closely at all, but I do watch it a little, and my interest is steadily (but mildly) growing. So I’ve decided that Evie Stevens will be my new favorite racer (in women’s cycling). Why? Well, because she has the same name as my oldest daughter.
Now, while I’m excited about Evie, I’m not necessarily a fan of HTC-Highroad, and I’m definitely not a fan of Mark Cavendish. (Though, I’m not exactly sure why, because he is mad fast, and it’s quite a rush to watch him sprint.)
So, why a post about racing on this blog? (Granted, it’s not the first one, but I’ll admit it’s a rare occurrence. Then again, the blog does claim to be about all things cycling, no matter the bike, or style, or speed.)
Honestly, I’m just looking for something bike-related to read and talk and get excited about. The winter’s just getting underway, and I miss riding. I still get out, but not like I do in warmer weather. During these short days and long months, there are wrenching projects and news feeds about pro teams gearing up for the new season. But when I can’t get out and ride a bunch, all I want to do is buy more bikes and parts and gear, which is sure to get me in trouble if I’m not careful.
What are you doing to pass the time?
