I love riding the steep banks and this was a racing workshop for new track racers

There were several college riders in the group and so much strategy to think about

It is a blast going all out on a fixed gear bike, I just have to remember I have to keep pedaling as I crossed the line.

Then time to bar hop/eat. We passed a place called The Pump House on the way to the velodrome, so we started there, drinks and wings while sitting on the roof top bar watching tubers on the Catawba River.

Then following a recommendation, it was a seafood dinner at the Rock Salt in Charlotte (this is a wall on a bike shop)

After the race, I wanted some peace and quiet, this place covers it! Until almost dusk, then a thunderstorm hit, including pea size hail…. I didn’t bring my rain fly because I didn’t bother to check the weather. Opps!

This is what I carry everyday, I wanted to clean the back and check what I could take out. Very little was left out… I posted the picture on Reddit and took some crap, but it’s my adventure mobile and it serves me well over the last 13 years and 326,000 miles.

A quick trip to Carolina Beach for Mother’s Day camping. This is as empty as I have ever seen Freeman Park, it was so nice!
