The Pieces Begin to Fall Into Place...

March 10, 2018


Sandy & the majority of the crew for Team Cycling for Autism are veterans to the Race Across America scene. For me, however, it has been a steep learning curve in a short amount of time - I'd never considered it possible for me to participate in such a huge event! Sandy has been very patient explaining rules and strategies, getting me set up with the behind-the-scenes details, and we've both thrown ourselves into our personal training programs. With 95-ish days out from the start of Race Across the West (June 12th!), it already feels like crunch time. Last Sunday, Sandy and I met to look over the equipment from RAAM '16 and bang out some travel details. Later that week, we met up at Hodson's Bay Company, our local bike shop and sponsor, for our equipment needs/retail therapy - more on that later!


And last night, we got together with Tim Lescun, our crew chief, and Nathan Birt, my partner-in-crime, to really consider numbers and strategy. Of course, we did it over some tex-mex - after all, my New Years "Resolution" was to Raise Hell & Eat Tacos. I made this goal before knowing I was in the Dirty Kanza 200 Event or Craig's injury would prevent Cycling for Autism from RAAM... In any case, Tim & Nathan really brought in their number crunching strategies to consider the needs of Sandy & I and how to manage our crew. Best of all, we just enjoyed one another's company and stories. 

Until next time...
