I have been thinking a lot lately about racing green. Thats when you ride to the race, do the race, then ride home. No carbon footprint is left. I need to do that for one of these Intermountain Cup races.
I remember back in the day at the Colorado Point Series, this kid would ride to each venue, self supported and race. Sometimes he would be so spent he would barely finish, but late in the season he had built up some insane fitness. Riding from Telluride to Ft. Collins will do that to you. The problem being is am I fit enough to do it all? I challenge any one else to do the same, maybe some special prize should be given out to those that do it. I know a lot of you live close to the race course in Draper, maybe you should step it up and go green for this race and not drive your SUV to the race, or at least carpool. Think about it, I need some motivation.
On a different note I just got this email from my Aunt Cindy who lives in Maryland. This really motivates me. "Forrest i'm joining your plight, I will walk to work for 60 days, if you can bike for 100". Right on!
