Hello and welcome to a website devoted to amateur cycling with a little different flavor and perspective. If you’ve been in the sport of cycling, and perhaps also dabbled in the world of racing, then you might enjoy some of what I have to say here.

Follow me on

The name of the site is “Eternal Cat 3″, but the “eternal” portion of that title was a bit of an exaggeration. I started road racing in 2008, took it somewhat serious, and managed to get my Cat 2 upgrade in March of 2014. This site used to be more about the racing bit, but now I am “retired” from that part of the sport and now simply enjoy riding my bike for fun and to keep my waist line in check.

So now what?  Well, I created this website, and blog, as a place on the internet for all of us “sort-of-fast” bike riders to collectively leave our thoughts.  I do have some training advice, a few race tactics I’ve picked up when I raced, and of course an entire section devoted to Beer, Wine and Food – my second favorite past times after cycling. Also, please check out the website for the team I belong to, Scarlet Fire Racing.

No matter what level you’re at, no matter the type of riding you do, check this out, please leave a comment (good or bad), and hopefully come away with a different way of thinking about this beautiful sport.
