But we're back.
Early this year, a small number of Mangs continued to ride consistently on the weekends - and it shows in their endurance and strength in our current rides. Some of us kept active in other ways but many took to other winter activities, pushing out our cycling training to early March, but also putting on display what makes this team so much more than just a cycling team. In many ways, we've become like lots of small families within a big family - doing movie nights, parties, picnics, and just providing friendly support for each other in many areas of life.

Whew! I'm not sure if I can keep up with all this diversification, I'm not sure if I captured everything we did over the past 5 months since the last entry. But it's all good - I'll catch up on the next post. Even though cycling is what brought many of us together, friendships tie us to each other in the other areas of life. At least now that it's Spring, everyone's starting to focus on their cycling training again to get ready for the summer rides...and there are a lot of them coming up. More on those on my next post. Here's hoping for another successful Mang/Aling year of movement!
