It's getting cold again here in WNC. Started a fire in the woodstove this morning so it would be warm when Jubal got up to get ready for school. I don't mind the cold too much, cold and wet is rough, but just cold is fine. It does take a couple of weeks to remember what to wear depending on temps.
I have never had a great pair of thermal cycling gloves but plan to invest in some this year. Any recommendations?

I'll be skipping my mtn bike ride tonight so that I can take care of some stuff in prep for the race this weekend.

I got a response from one sponsorship request. I was turned down. That's fine, I'll keep riding and having fun, and paying full price for my bike parts and supplies. Maybe my favorite local bike shop could help me out.

I'm still waiting to hear back from a bicycle company, we'll see what happens.

I do, however, plan on continuing to represent World Bicycle Relief indefinitely. They are a great organization and they are doing some great things world wide. Check out the web site.

Have a great day.

If you want sponsorship discounts, don't look to Mike Nix. But if you want to save alot of money on all your piece parts, clothing, etc you should set up a Free account on and punch in your results. Then just click on the various sponsors. You'll get at 15-50% off on most any of the offers you are given. It saves alot of money.
