After a long cold winter (except for the glorious NZ part), the first real sign of spring: The start of the New York Cycle Club's annual spring training series, called the SIGs. (Don't ask why.)
For a fourth year I'm a co-leader, after kicking off my cycling career in 2007 as a Siggie. It's always been one of the greatest experiences ever, and once again this year our group is filled with talented and fun people. Plus, of course, it's fantastic to be getting the season going again.
I hadn't ridden in two weeks and instead had been deeply engrossed in news and other matters, so I'm feeling the effects in this post-ride state. But it's a good feeling.
Tomorrow, I ride again.
This week also included a very exciting development at work, a fairly major promotion to a very fun job. But since I can't talk about work here, that's all that shall be said on that front. It's definitely a very good thing, though.
