did you ever try a bike cover so you can keep your bike safe from the cats or is that not durable enough?
That is a good idea, I'll check them out this weekend. They (the cats) are knuckleheads and I can see them popping a tire.
Dan,I've been absent from the blogs for a while - You doing LP is new and great news for me to hear. I will not be racing LP this year, but I am going up there as a volunteer (to secure my slot for next year). I signed up for security at the beach so I will have plenty of opportunity to look for you and cheer you on throughout the day. You have proved that you are one tough cookie and this is a great goal for you this year. You will love it! I look forward to seeing you there.
