I work in the bike industry which means I do not make crazy amounts of money in order to justify paying $85 for a merino wool tshirt. But, I want it so badly.

If you are a contant reader you will know my love of Strava. It keeps me motivated, up to date with my friends rides across the world and technology makes my world go around.
When I visit new places (which is weekly) I’m always trying to find new rides, routes and cue sheets. Using a split of Google, Garmin Connect and Map my Ride I’ve been doing okay. But now, Strava is allowing me download peoples routes to upload into my Garmin! I can dominate QOM’s all day long now.
Today is Bike Shop Saturday. Going right along with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and any other “holiday” created to spend money. The event was created by Cycling Utah to encourage money to be spent back into the local community, specifically around bikes.
Prep was solid into this race. Hitting about 90% of my training for the two weeks leading into the event. Could I have been at 100%? I’m sure, but I’m not a pro and I do have a life to live.
