A few of you might have already seen me zipping about at rides and races on my first ever new bike build. I love it. This steel framed Road Logic rides like a dream. The perfect amount of flex but still responsive enough when it needs to be. The build is not quite complete as I’m still figuring out wheels (thanks for the temps, RLIII) and some other nice matchy-matchy bits. That will just give me another excuse to take more pictures of Ritchey the Robber Baron.
Kudos to all the folks who came out and raced the Here Comes the Girls Alleycat this past Easter! It was great to see our die-hard New Orleans Alleycat participants in addition to a bunch of fresh faces coming together to race and raise money for a great cause. As always, a huge thanks to Drew Stephen who continues to make much bike party every year. Oh, and Yeah You Ride welcomes First Overall, Skip Town, to the club!

Tonight I will head to Baton Rouge to race in the last of the 4D Spring Track Series races. I bought my Fuji Track secondhand in the summer of 2009 and this spring has been the first time it’s ever made it to the velodrome. It’s been a painful good time trying to learn the ropes of track racing, which is both physically and mentally demanding.
Fret not about missing out on all the track racing because in September there will be a Fall Series leading into the LAMBRA Track Championships. Get yourself up to Baton Rouge to practice in the meantime, as the track is open and free to ride during the day. For more info, join the Baton Rouge Velodrome Association Facebook group.
