As we wrap up the year we have much to be thankful for and to look forward to. 2016 seemed to be a pretty good riding year weather wise. One of the nicest DALMAC's in recent history and very few scheduled rides cancelled because of rain. Now that the weather has cooled down and the days are a little shorter many of us are heading indoors. Keep it fun. Nothing beats riding outdoors so the challenge is to make indoor riding a little more palatable. Music and videos are often the simplest way to pass the time on a trainer. Set a realistic schedule and goals that are achievable.
Sign up for an early season ride and put the 2017 Assenmacher 100 on your schedule. That can help motivate you and train your way to fitness while imagining tail winds and sunny summer days
Keep your your bicycle in shape. Be prepared for the unexpected. Check your tires regularly for wear and damage. Keep them inflated to the correct pressure for the type of riding you are doing. Make sure that you have a spare tube, pump, and you know how to use them. Always carry your cell phone!

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day
time limit –
Also called "time cut," this is a way to eliminate or penalize the slowest riders in a race or event. After every stage in a stage race, a time cut is established by taking the winner's time and adding 10 to 20%. Riders who finish in excess of this buffer zone are not allowed to start the next day. Time limits are common in road stage races, randonneuring and sometimes in other rides like centuries, usually as a way to ensure safety.
