I leave for Leadville tomorrow morning, early of course. There is no other way to tackle a ten hour drive. You gotta hit it hard just as the sky warms. That way, by the time you even think about breakfast, you’re already a hundred miles away. This will be my first time going up to that part of Colorado without the whole race thing to think/obsess about. Could be interesting. I can just sit at the bar and get loaded.
And I’m strangely comfortable with that.

Subject: road rage
goddamn jonny, wtf is going on? Two road ragers directed at me and another oblivious dickhead who ran me off the road—all in the last three weeks. Is it the heat? Today, riding in a freakin’ state park south of Denver, an ass lunged at me with his car, then proceeded to tell me that bikes didn’t belong on the road, cussed me out, threw something at me, flipped me off after blocking the road, then took off.
So I call the State Patrol hot line to report it and got an earful of, “Well, why weren’t you on the bike path?” ‘Scuse my french but screw you!!! Cyclists by the hundreds use the park’s perimeter road for training. I put a lot of miles in and this was the first time I have ever reported such an incident. The fear is starting to build. Who knows what these ‘holes might pull next?
No disrespect but I don’t want to end up in a hospital bed like my favorite blogger.
Keep the rubber side down out there, folks.
