Biking in Memphis!

June 27, 2008 at 10:07 pm Leave a comment

We’re settled into the Hampton Inn here just outside of Memphis in Colliersville, TN. It was a nice drive up even with a major nose bleed from Analise which started with “Daddy, my nose is running”. We turn around to see Analise covered in blood from her nose down to her chin (she had wiped blood all over her cheeks and into her hair). Kristine valiantly cleaned her up, calmed her down, and got the bleeding to stop. She was fine in a matter of minutes as if nothing had happened.

After that, we met Lennie and Kim and their kids for a fun Greek/Italian dinner in Tupelo, MS. A short drive later and we made it up here to Colliersville. I just got back from a spin around a cool park called “Eagle Lake” which had a really nice lighted bike path around a lake. There were tons of geese and even a big heron that took off when I rode by it. It was cool to see it swooping out of the water and past one of the lights on the path.

The racing starts bright and early tomorrow morning with a 72 mile road race, followed by a 4 mile mostly flat TT tomorrow afternoon, and an hour-long criterium Sunday morning. Wish me luck!

Short very hot ride. Cahaba river at the lowest I've ever seen it - at Hoover east ballfields shortly before running over fresh gum and cutting the ride short to clean it off my tire. Today's rollercoaster experiment - 20 repeats with Garmin 1000 forwards and backwards. Movie theater roller coaster (top) and Green valley rollercoaster (bottom).
