'07 Team Gear

The new team gear finally came in today. So after organizing everyone's order I decided to go on a short ride in the new duds. They are bit darker than I expected, but I think they stand out really well. I like the mountain motif and the flow of the jersey into the short design. Nate really did a good job, considering he doesn't design jerseys full time. Be sure to thank him next time you see him.

Scott and I rode the BST above Orem/Lindon, just a short 45 min loop, but it was nice to get the lungs working for a bit. Scott graciously acted the photog part simply because he didn't want to change into his new gear and have the pictures taken of him I think.

So now I just have to get the team t-shirts ordered and then work on the other dozen things I have on my list and then perhaps in November I can relax a bit.

Lazy Blogger

Ok..So I haven't been the most diligent of Bloggers. Sure I have plenty of excuses, work, family, scouts, organizing a bike team (two, sort of) and of course training. Everyone has demands on their time, right? (except Chris and KC apparently, just kidding).

So I'm resolving to do better, to get a digital camera even - my wife won't let me use hers. I WILL start making updates to this blog. Why? Good question, I suppose because there are a few people out there who might actually click a link from someone elses blog and find what I have to say interesting, informative, perhaps even pathetic, hence making them feel better about their own life of quiet desperation (yes that's borrowed).

So I'll have Adam give me some lessons on posting and graphic design and you'll see an improvement. Sometime soon. In the near future. I promise.

Aside from that little confession and resolution here's the current state of affairs:

The Mad Dog Team is looking good this year. We have alot of good riders, many people who believe in the cause and are willing to help us achieve our goals of community awareness and involvement. We will hopefully, be better prepared and advertise more effectively this year.

We will hold monthly guided rides open to the public, we will have two trail maintenance days and we will put together a race for the community this August. Alot of work ahead of us, but I think it can be done and will be helpful to the cycling community.

More updates to follow.
