Spring is in the air!

Temps are starting to rise, the days are getting longer and the usual events of Spring are finally underway!

We fired up the grill for the first time in 2011 and let our Kiwi roommate go to town on making one of the best burgers I've ever had!

It was mmmmmm good!

When it's sunny and 70* in March, every cyclist goes up hill on their weekend ride so we decided to as well. I hadn't been up to Sunshine Canyon to Gold Hill since the 7200 acre fire last summer so we gave it a whirl. It was really sad seeing all the houses that were burned to the ground but also exciting to see several new ones already rebuilt. I can't say that climbing 4000ft is very easy at the moment but we did it as easy as we could and made it home alive :)

After our ride, we slammed a quick lunch then headed to the CU Research park to watch the first bike race of the year. It felt great to be back outside watching bike racing while cheering and getting our cowbell on! I even had some killer sponsor correct cowbells going on - thank you Timex and Maxxis! Our new roommate, Paddy had a great race while helping his teammate take the win and the rest of the crew finished strong and safe!
