Whoo Hoo! I did my first Xcross Race Today!

And I didn’t fall down!

I’m not sure how I did but I don’t think I was last AND I think I was the oldest participant so I am pretty happy about it.

Granted, it was the Urban Cyclocross Challenge in the West Bottoms of KC, MO, so it was far from a traditional cyclocross race – BUT, my bamboo bicycle performed great and I even did a cyclocross running dismount. My re-mounts need work to say the least but great fun was had by me and all who attended. It was a gorgeous, sunny day. Perfect for being outside. It was in the high 20’s but no wind to speak of. I couldn’t feel my toes by the end of the race but other than that, it was very comfy for riding a bicycle.

I have movies on my camera that someone took for me so I will edit those and put them on my Flickr page next week.

I scrubbed, lubed, and waxed (yes, I wax my bike) the bamboo bike when I got home so it’s ready to go. I also re-set my computer so I’m starting at zero miles today. Now to start working on my 2,010 miles this year.

Tomorrow it’s back to sewing some bags!!! I’m way far behind on getting them done and re-creating my store on this site. ¬†Argh.
