1 bottle of Gatorade, 1 Powerbar, and 1 GU flask

It has been quite some time since I've posted anything here and some of you might be wondering why. Well the simple fact is that the life of a working man is pretty damn boring... its wake up, go to work, come home, ride, eat, go to bed and do it all over the next day. So instead of boring you all to death, my posts will be sporadic until the racing season starts back up again. Then I will assure you at least one weekly post.
But to catch back up to speed I've been doing a ride every Wednesday night ride with Rob which I look forward to every week. It's usually at least 4 hours at night at Jim Thorpe. We've been doing these rides for the past 4 or 5 months and have been partaking in what most would call the most retarded rides they have ever heard of every week. So far nothing has been able to put a stop to these rides, and I mean nothing... not weather, injuries, or debilitating illnesses. I would say two of the most notable rides have had to be #1 the one and only 8+hour five peak night ride and #2, 3+ hours of half of the American Standard in 4 to 5 inches of snow. Lately the insanity has been spreading to the weekends as well. Last weekend it was a Philly/White Clay double header, and this weekend I started things off solo with a 3.5 hour ice ride on my home turf with some homemade snow chains (will post a picture of these babies in the future). Ending the weekend today was a 7.5 hour tour of Michaux, which began as a small group ride with myself, Rob, Matt, and Ray, but ended with just myself and Rob digging in deep for the last 4.5 hours.... And to fuel a ride like this, all you need is 1 bottle of Gatorade, 1 Powerbar, and 1 GU flask.
