Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone. I got out early this morning for a four hour ride. I did about 3/4 of my hill route, a 75 mile route that contains most of the big hills close to my house as layed out using Gmap. Big is a relative term but here in SE Michigan it's hard to find much elevation change. I could pick some of the biggest hills and keep doing them over and over but I wanted to see what combining all of them within 10 miles of my house would be like.

Riding the course in its entirety would net about 4600 feet of climbing. Today was only 3400 feet because I ran out of time and had to get home to get the ham on the grill. I worked up an appetite but it will be another three hours before I can eat. I guess I can snack on the Easter candy while I wait.

Here's Kevin's phone number
517-927-3228. His e-mail address is
kevinlippert@comcast.net. I think that he might have a different listed on his website still???

Give him a call. It was amazing the difference that he made in two hours. He's studied it for so long that he does a great job explaining how you should hold your bike etc. I was pretty much doing everything backwards.
