CorioVelo 10,000k Challenge.

Last year I after having talked to several athletes, cyclists , commuters etc. They all mentioned that it would be nice to have a challenging goal. A goal that you wouldnt have to go to a place to complete. A goal that you could count your everyday training. This is where the 10,000 km challenge emerged. 6,214 miles around that. Cycle, Walk, Run, Row anything human propulsion. The only thing not included is lifting weights. If it can count miles or you can count miles it counts. It is all on the honor system. Several flyers are at bikes shops but if you want to enter, Email coriovelo at the following email address
For those who have entered send in your entry forms and I will mail the rules to you. RIDE ON. The ox.

Consistency is the keyword for the day. No matter what piece of equipment and how much it costs, if you are not consistent it is just another piece of equipment.

Congratulations for CorioVelo Athletes

Congratulations go to the following CorioVelo Athletes.

Matt Young who rode from Seattle to Fort Worth. We made sure his equipment was right , guessing the terrain and weather on the other hand, was a whole new ball game. He rode for Cystic Fibrosis.

Frank, Ironman Athlete finished 3rd in his division for the REDMAN IRON DISTANCE triathlon. Good Job Frank, Next year we will work on more numbers.

Scott S. Scott rode the Texas Time Trial 100 mile championship in 5 hrs 11 min. He was third but some major cramping on the last lap. (I have to research what went wrong on the nutrition and fuel) So Scott finished 6 th. Heavy competition. This was the National Championship for Ultra Marathon Cycling Association

By the way CorioVelo means hurricane wheel. You should be pedaling enough to produce hurricane force winds with your own power. Corio comes from Coriolis effect. Velo is french for wheel. Till the next entry.

Degray Half Ironman

The Degray Lake Half Ironman is upon us. This weekend the pilgramage continues as a host of athletes will go suffer in the heat. Last year , the heat index was well over 100. Look out for Eric to smash the course, Frank to burn up the course, Kelly to catch everyone on the bike and the run. Julie will be setting PR's on the bike and swim. The OX, well lets just say OX are for hard work. So I will just be working hard out there. Second short read for the blog.

Kudos to Eric and Frank

This is my first blog on my blog. Kudos go out to my buddies Frank and Eric. See, Frank and I have a ride we do called the IRONGOAT. It is basically the Goatneck Ride(see Goatneck in Cleburne) plus another 40 or so miles. I am a 2 time IRONGOATER. Whereas as of last Saturday Frank is a 3 time IRONGOATER and Eric a 1st time IRONGOATER. I was going to do the ride but some bad salmon from a local restaurant gave me Montezuma's revenge. Short blog, but good enough for some good reading.
