yes yes. it’s been a minute. living life. exams. deadlines. etc. but my mind is still made up about tomorrow’s race – Turkey Du Duathlon out in SUNY Old Westbury. westbury was my stomping grounds back in my early college days – mad love to the M.A.L.I.K.‘s. nonetheless, i have been preparing in minute-but deliberate ways. yesterday i purchased my very first thermal midweight base layer made by sugoi. i wanted something simple and affordable, considering tomorrow’s race is my last for the season. this bad boy should hold a brother down in the beginning of the next season (early spring) and cool mornings upstate – should i feel so inclined (no pun). i should be ok with this and my fleece (a jacket is next on the list – all things in due time). but that’s it.

speaking of gear the major taylor association has the dopest jersey i’ve seen thus far:

Major Taylor Commemorative Jersey

The Major Taylor custom, limited-edition cycling jersey features a 1900 photograph of Major Taylor taken by E. Chickering in Boston; the Worcester, Mass., street sign for Major Taylor Boulevard with the city’s “Heart of the Commonwealth” symbol; and the 1899 world champion’s nickname, “The Worcester Whirlwind.” The jersey, made by Louis Garneau, is Micro-Airdry fabric with a 14-inch hidden zipper and three rear pockets. The fit is semi-relaxed, a little less snug than pro cut.

yes i know i’m new to the sport, but so farthose jerseys with lime green, hot pink, safety orange colors with flags and logos all over the place make my head hurt -not too fly to say the least. you are hard pressed to catch a solid color one. so when i peeped this one, please believe i was excited. the only thing is you gotta get your order in by the end of this month – November 30! find more info here.

the major taylor ironriders cycling club also has dope cycling outfits for the general membership and the official race team. i’m on it!
