I have some big news, and those of you who follow me on my socials or Strava might have noticed a lack of posts over the past couple of months. While there was a week of sickness and a 2 week vacation there have been some other things brewing in the background that have kept me from riding/training/racing. I’m not sure the surrey and cruiser bike rides on vacation count.
My wife and I are moving to the Charlotte, NC area! We are so excited as we have been talking about moving south and getting out of NY or a few years now and low and behold I received a terrific job offer and we should be moving over the next few months.
Of course nothing is as easy as it sounds and it has been calls with banks, realtors, relocation people every day for a few weeks now, not to mention I’m finishing up my old job and trying to prepare for the new. Then there will be lots of flights and stays in hotels until we actually move. Not looking forward to that.
Hopefully things fall into place soon and I can experience some new and exciting adventures in our new city. I think the NC/SC cycling scene is far superior to what we have in this area of NY.
Any TrainerRoadites have any recommendations for clubs/routes etc? I have found some stuff online but always open to suggestions. Oh any good bike shops to rent road bikes from while I’m living out of a suitcase? I’m probably going to forego any more structured training for at least the summer and just get out and enjoy the riding. Maybe some fondos if I can get some type of fitness back.
