MOCO Epic 3rd & 4th Training Rides Cancled, Strava

Weekly MOCO epic training ride didn't happen yesterday and will also be canceled for next weekend.  With x-mas and new years there are too many schedule conflicts.  I'm going to use these two weeks get some longer rides in to hopefully get my fitness to a place where I don't feel like I need to go race pace to keep up with Dylan and Jeff.  Next MOCO epic ride will be on Jan 7th.

I received a GPS for Christmas. One of those Garmin ones that you can attach your bike. I also set up a Strava account.  They are one of the sponsors of are team.  Strava lets you download your ride, calculates your power output, shows a map of where you road, lets you compare and compete with others on climbs, gives an easy to read line graph of heart rate, elevation , power, distance and speed. It's also a social networking type of site you can follow other riders and comment on their rides.  It has made me more motivated to ride.

I'm sorry, dude, your spelling (or lack there of) is driving me nuts.
