    Review on the 2009 Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup Weekend (Event site and Links to results/photos) in Southampton.
    Again, a great Cyclocross Event on Long Island with top Elite Riders in the UCI women and men fields, packed with action, speed and a great welcoming atmosphere for riders and spectators. See your self watching the two video clips I cut from some footage and still images I took both days. I tried to catch key sections in still and video sequences in the order of riders encountering them on there laps. Starting out with a flat road sprint, moving over grass, climbing a few challenging steep, short and off-camber grassy turns, hitting part sandy single track in the woods and some enforced dismounts overcoming obstacles sections running -- all within one lap out of about 10..15 laps.

    Are you enjoying the fall colors on your bike?

    TOSREC1.JPG Do you enjoy the more brisk days of riding and watching the beautiful colors of fall? Just dress right to match your riding level -- faster = less is better, just to stay warm and protect yourself from wind. You know you are perfectly dressed if you feel a bit chilly for the first few miles until warmed up!

    Enjoy a few recent photos off fall weather riding. Here on left, high up in Connecticut on John&Py's 4th annual TOSREC.

    Update: New RP2IPBP ride fall season start time from October is 9am.

    What a beautiful day for Py's RP2IPBP ride, a chilly morning. A good sized group found together at Tildas last Saturday, Rocky Point (RP) and rolled out promptly by 8am with the chime of a close by clock tower -- one rider showed up just last minute as we almost attempted to cross the road at Tildas -- little chatting and off we go....
