i am downright giddy with excitement. this nice big box from cannondale arrived on my front stoop today, and inside is a brand spanking new never been ridden before sweet silver cyclocross bike. last year, i was perfectly happy to watch the spectacle that is cyclocross and ring the cowbell, cheering from the sidelines. but this year, i plan to partake in the madness. should be fun as soon as i learn to dismount. fellow runners be happy - i will be doing a little bit of running this fall as i (try) to hop off a perfectly nice bike and run with it.
