training camp chez moi

so a lot of serious (but not pro) canadian cyclists go south in february or march for a week or two of base training in a location where road rides are feasible to get a lot of hours and miles on the bike. in the theme of “this recession can bite me” (awesome phrase borrowed from ejshea), we decided to have a poor-man’s training camp in my basement this weekend (and last, but one man on a trainer does not a camp make).
this is what my basement looked like for the weekend:

i only did one ride with the boys (my bike is in the middle but it’s hard to tell) but it was fun! they put about 8-10 hours over 3 days, watching star wars and old cyclocross championship races. at training camp, you basically ride, eat, and sleep, so that’s what we did (with a little hike for cross training and getting out of the house). i had fun feeding the two almost bottomless pits.
