As you can tell, we go to a lot of bike races. This weekend, I finally got tired of being only a spectator and agreed to race. It was surprisingly fun. I even got on the podium, much to my surprise.

Sophie likes getting on the podium, but Sophie’s experience of our many bike-racing weekends is, mostly, hanging out with her friends.

Ain’t they cute? Those people who complain that kids these days don’t get enough time outdoors, or enough time to run around free-range, or enough experience with diverse ages, or something, have clearly never met cyclocross kids. If they did meet cyclocross kids, though, they would find a whole new set of things to complain about.
Still, now that the season is almost over, and it’s almost finished sucking up every single weekend, I am starting to actually enjoy many aspects of cyclocross.
