Grindcore at the Almanzo 100 2013

What a difference a year makes!

Last year, I felt like I was prepared for the ride. This year, I knew I was. With some shifts in schedule and life, I've been more consistent and deliberate in my training. Add in the fact that I'm entering my fourth year of competitive cycling, and you can surmise that I'm getting the hang of it.

The lead-up to this year's Almanzo was filled with apprehension about the sheer number of riders taking the start line. A whopping 1,400 sent in postcards, and while I knew they wouldn't all show up, even if a third of them didn't, it would still be huge. And that, to me, meant dusty and sketchy. With that many people full of adrenaline, the race could conceivably end very badly, very early.

CycloFemme Lincoln Women's Ride

Join us in celebrating Global Women's Cycling Day with a fun bike ride on trails around town! We'll meet at the Jane Snyder Trails Center at 2 PM on Sunday, May 12, then head out for a fun ride! Current plan is to ride the trails down to the Haymarket for some Ivanna Cone, but it's our ride, so we can decide to do something else if we please! Our pace is parade style, and wear whatever makes you feel comfortable! This could range from a dress and heels to a full lycra kit -- it's up to you.

This ride is suitable for women of all ages! Bring your mother, your daughter, your sister, your auntie, or your best friend. The goal -- more women on bikes, enjoying each others' company and making new friends!
