Tomorrow I’m going to ride my first 400k in 4 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long already. So many things have happened since then that I don’t even remember much about it. So here’s a trip down memory lane and my post about the So Cal Beach Cities 400k. Check out the pics […]
A few months ago I met Lee through the internet. I was riding my local BikeMS event for my Mom and my good friend Aaron. This was my second year riding the event and the first year as a team captain. Our Team Upness ended up raising over $7,000! Pretty cool. Around the same time […]
I wasn’t there, but I wish I was. Check out this report and the pictures from this event. Looks like Irving and the crew put on a great event. The final gif is the best. I was thinkin’ about how much fun pedalin’ bikes is and this pic sums it up. Makes me think of […]
Saturday I’m planning to ride the OC400k brevet. I need to take the next few days to rest up and make sure the bike is ready to go. Most importantly that my head is ready. My legs feel good so I just need to the head to keep me going. Gonna be tough not to […]
For this weekend’s brevet I knew that my GPS would run out of power at some point. I have a Dyno hub on the Pelican but I don’t have a way to charge the gps AND power the lights at night. So I brought along my Brunton Inspire battery pack. I had to plug it […]
(Click the pics to see them in a lightbox) Somethings you just gotta face head on. This 300k was one of those things for me. The day started out pretty good. I felt strong and made my way to the first checkpoint pretty quickly. I chatted with Ryan briefly at the start and we rolled […]
Tomorrow morning I plan to attempt my first 300k in 2 years. To say I’m nervous is an understatement. 2 years ago I was on this ride and I kinda freaked out. I did not want to be out there. I did not want to pedal. I was over it. I’m not sure why exactly […]
Yesterday I posted a link on facebook to John Prolly’s report on his AWOL trip. I made a sarcastic comment about Specialized (the company), which I don’t like, but the link was to the PiNP post and, well I came off like a dick. I didn’t mean to be a dick to John but it […]
The best things about bikes are the people you meet pushin’ the pedals. It’s not about how fast or how far. It’s just about the goodness of the people. Check out this video by Swift Industries. They nail it.
Here are a few pics from last weekend. It was c-c-cold up there, but man is it some good ridin’. I really love that place.
