Cleaning Out the Drafts: A Saturday morning stroll (aka. Commute then to Točna)

DISCLAIMER: Gratuitous use of the letter č in this post Originally written June 12, 2007. So Verča and I headed out for a Saturday morning ride. We weren’t in a hurry, because it was supposed to rain all week-end. But by the time we roused ourselves it was nice and we took a quick jaunt. […]

Week-end Biking in Prague

So just a quick couple of pics from this past week-end. Verča hasn’t slowed down too much being 6 months pregnant. She does seem to have figured out how to take better photos than me though. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, this was a nice fall ride in Brdy, 20minutes south of Prague. It […]

Rapha Continental Centre Ramble Write Up

I helped put together a Rapha Continental Ride, as the spoke card below denotes.  Some editors from Bicycling magazine showed up and rode it as well, and wrote it up, and gave a shout out to not only this humble, dust cover’d blog, but also to the neglected but viable dirt road database.  We thank […]

rapha ramble ‘recon’

i was invited to chart a ‘rapha continental ride’, ie a bike ride in the continental style: dirt roads, mountain passes, grand vistas.  it will be part of a published series of rides documented in a classic style, ie from a van with medium format cameras, hanging out the window on 40 mph rutted descents.  […]

It’s finally here. The RideLugged Spring Opener.

Ah the spring opener.  Where we get to see how fat everyone got over the winter and how annoyingly slim Joe stays, regardless of the season. Yeah so, I thought 45 miles was a decent place to start.  Now: for the fat asses, (me) and the ladies (me) there will be a short cut back […]

Pavé Pavé Pavé!

Pavé Pavé Pavé! is a blog written by Whit Yost, a Philly resident with a love of all things cobbled, sweaty, and Euro.  His new site is a handy guide to the Spring Classics, with links to good coverage, informed commentary, and actual first hand knowledge of some of the courses.  I’ve been meaning to […]
