East Michigan Cycling News

My mom brought some bicycling news to my attention this morning from the east side of Michigan. My mom is cool!

SpokeSongs Bicycle Tour – Saturday, May 15, 2010 – Ypsilanti, MI
Mountain and road bike rides will start and end at The Savoy followed by a concert with The Steel Wheels Duo. Sounds like a great time!

Police Search for Driver who Hit Cyclist Monday Night in Detroit
The driver of a black Ford Crown Victoria or Mercury Marauder struck a cyclist on the west side of Detroit last night and went so far as to remove the license plates from the car before fleeing the scene. The cyclist is in critical condition. I hope they catch the driver and prosecute to the greatest extent possible. What an awful human being. My thoughts and prayers are with the cyclist.

Swim 1100 yards, Run 35 min (approx. 4 miles)
Swam 100 warm up, 12x25 sprints, 3x200 threshold, 100 cool down
Ran for 35 minutes, but I’m not sure how far. I’d guess around 4 miles – give or take.
My legs feel almost more tired running after swimming than they do after biking. I wonder how they’ll feel after I’ve done both!
