I'll get to camp in a sec but I wanted to share a pretty cool day I had the other day. One of the classrooms at my wife's work has been been doing some fun stuff with cycling as a topic. When I first heard this I donated a ton of stuff for the kids to use and my wife took pictures in of me and our team (of course). Tara works for the Franklin County Head Start Program that helps low income families attempt to break the cycle of poverty and give children opportunities they may not have otherwise. The kids loved the stuff so much we decided to set-up a little appearance there and spend a little time with the kids. So I took my teammate Ryan Gamm with me.. he is about the size of a little kid so I figured they would relate well to him:-) We took one of our bikes in and talked a bit about safety and how our bikes work. It was great to see how excited the kids got and how curious they were about everything. We finished the day with Ryan doing some laps on his bike for them... with his helmet on of course:-) Was a great day and I wanted to thank everyone involved for letting us spend some time there. Hopefully I will have some pics from this soon and I will post them as soon as I get em. Looking forward to doing this again!
Okay, onto camp. I have been getting ready and excited to get amongst it. Looking forward to getting all our new swag but mostly getting together with the team. Camp is always a great time to get together and start that "family" bond. I am a big believer that the tighter our family is the more success we will have. So I know I will do my part to make this the closest family so far. I leave in 5 days.. can't wait!
Training has been great and I am all set up on my new rig. I know I said I was gonna post some new pics but I am waiting for the finishing touches and will have pics up in the next couple days. Jimmy B made the trip down from Kent and fit all the guys a couple weekends ago which was awesome. Our bike fits take so much time up at camp it will be nice to have mine done. Although I do plan on spending tons of time with the Jim, Andy and Tom (our Wobble Naught fitters) to fine tune and perfect my fit:-)
Team Cars are ready to roll!
Jimmy B doing his thing...
