2011 Maybury TT

A few weeks ago Allison showed some interest in doing a race this summer. We went to Maybury to practice and decided to do the 8/20/11 Maybury Time Trial. Allie changed her mind Friday night, which is fine; I am excited she even considered it. I did the time trial anyway. It could be my worse result ever but I’m glad I went. I get a little anxious when I go too long without racing and, after spending the previous week moving most of my stuff to Canton, Maybury is now my local trail and I want to support my new community and everything it has to offer.

Canton isn’t all bad. They have an Ikea. Home furnishings aren’t something that normally interests me but Ikea is kind of cool. I took Emilie, Allie, and some friends to Ikea after dance class for a cheap dinner and to pick out some cheap yet stylish furniture.

After the race I assembled an Ikea loft bed and clothes cabinet thingy for Allie. The girls are excited to move and helped clean. I hate Canton less today than I did last month. I suppose I am moving in the right direction.


  1. Hi!
    I would like to invite you to my linky party on my bike blog called ‘Want It Wednesday’. Its very simple, by going to put your name and URL address in the linky Wizard. Then on every other Wednesday, blog about a piece of desirable bike kit that you want to own or even want to brag about, remembering to link back to my address so others can join too. It is a fantastic, fun and commitment free way for others to find your blog and read about you. It’ll increase you traffic to your blog and hopefully get you more followers.

    Give it a try!!


  2. Brilliant Jez. Dan's blog has me all sentimental for vintage stuff so my Wednesday posts will likely have an old school slant. Christ I am getting old. And I think my blog is way too quirky and abiguous to ever develop a following; no offence to any of my followers who might actually follow it.
