Its hard to find time to ride when working 12 plus hours a day in the middle of nowhere.  Right now im on stage 3 of a 12 stage frac job. Its 3:30 am and I would really prefer to be in bed right now.

Here is a pic from last week.  I was in perryton texas for 12 days working with the directional driller.

I rode 3 laps solo around lake hefner yesterday.  It was my fastest solo day on my bike by far. 18.5 mph over 29.2 miles. Eventually I would like to average 20mph.

It’s amazing how much crap you can stuff in a Fit.

Kilo tt

Posted in Uncategorized on March 12, 2011 by themateo


I went on my first real ride today on my kilo tt.  I got the bike for christmas from my girlfriend.  Up to this point I had only rode it around campus.  It felt really good today but the ride is super rough unless the road Is super smooth.  My first upgrade for it is going to be a new set of pedals and straps. Im a total newb when it comes to bicycles.  Any good sites or forums I can check out?

Yeah Buddy!

Went through my first tank of gas in the fit.  I got 299 miles out of 8.8 gallons which is equal to 34 MPG.  I am pretty happy with this number.  This was using crap 10% ethanol gas and in very cold weather.  My commute is about 80% highway miles.  I think that once it warms up and using non ethanol gasoline i can reach 40 MPG.
