Living Vision and Biking Waukesha

Working backwards in blog posts to last week Saturday.  First up, family time Wednesday, hopefully tomorrow  will post Gun Show Footage from Tuesday night, and finally Race footage from Last Saturdays 12 hrs of Northern Kettles (I did the 3 hr…).

So we are always suppose to “practice what you preach”, so in the spirit of Vision’s mission and with the upcoming Bike to Work day put on by Bike Waukesha, we decided to do some reconnaissance  and show the kids that a bike is not only the perfect way to enjoy a day, but also the best way to go almost anywhere we need too.

Once in Waukesha our first stop was at Café De Arts, Ronsta has mentioned it many times so I had to try and I was AMAZED by the food and service.  A MUST STOP in Waukesha for Breakfast or Lunch.  And to top it off they support cycling and are a sponsor of the Bike to Work day next Friday, which would be an awesome way to try some of their selection.

And of course Ice Cream from Sloppy Joes Soda Fountain can’t be missed on a 4 hour ride in 80 degree weather.

Nothing like a Chocolate 1x caffeine powergel to keep those little legs pushing Mommy around.  She is such a trooper, smiles the whole time!0601111639a

Next up from this blog will be this last Tuesday’s Video edit of the Gunshow. I think it was one of the hardest “Training Rides” I have ever done.  Here is a graph of how close I cam to Personal Best numbers on my power meter for the duration of the ride.

I am always surprised that I don’t usually (once or twice on this ride I have)  put down personal best numbers on the power meter during hard group rides, on the Gun Show my ride numbers on the graph just hover below the Personal Best line.  Then I remember that all those personal best numbers are set, when focusing specifically, all in one effort, from start to finish, on each of those time durations…so to push the envelope on all those personal bests while going pretty much all out the entire ride and mix some stop signs and lights in…yea its crazy fast!  Want a hard workout, come check it out sometime.

Thanks for reading,

Nathan
