Boulder Base Camp





I ventured to Boulder, CO just over two years ago to pursue cycling and today's ride reminded me why it was the right move. Nothing is better for your modivation than training with a group of elite athletes who share your same determination and focus. Today's train was powered by the likes of JHK (Fisher), Scott Moninger (Health Net), Chris Baldwin (Navigators), Chuck Coyle (Vitamin Cottage), Pete Lopinto (Sierra Nevada), Doug Ollerenshaw (Health Net), Heather Irmiger (Gary Fisher) and of course the boyz from Tiaa Cref (just to name a few).



It was pretty much a Roadie enduced day in the saddle and being the only mountain bikers in the group (besides JHK), Ranno let his true feelings be known, "Dude, I feel weird, like I am on a first date or something".



Chuck went for the triple threat in the Little Debbie department! I never want this to turn into a site about how much I train or how much my bike weighs .... it's all about the lifestyle. This gas station shot is a perfect example of how we manage on the road, whether it is training or traveling, we get by.

In other news:

Check out fellow "blogger" Ashwin's site for his new pro interview features. Thanks Ashwin for featuring me as your first athlete. Check it out...

Btw, Nick Ranno will no longer be referred to as "The Diesel". He shall now be referred to as Nick "Short Bus" Ranno. This update goes into effect immediately.

Anytime you mix cycling and cowboy boots, you have my vote! Damn Girl...

Ah yes, the Dirty Debbies. The highest caloric intake for the least amount of money.

Excuse me Mam, but can I get a case of Zebra Cakes to go for me and my pose? It's a long ride home.
