Centennial Grounds is used for parking at the Mann, picnics, hidden campsite homes, dog walkers, a football team practices over by the site of the sighting of the Madonna. The hand of the Statue of Liberty sat on the edge of Centennial Lake. And its a good place, though flat, to get some hot laps and cx work in.
Maybe its one of things I love about cross the most, these sorta forgotten places, that are green, beautiful personality of places. These green and brown spots that I ride, if there were rules, and overseen, regulated and nice, I'd guess most likely I'd be kicked out. and I like that.
It was steaming, and hot, and I did cx work. and I liked it. Damn it! Love it, the people, courses, muck, heat, beer, cold, bitterness cold. and there are always those three pine steps to dream about standing on!
