s24o rednex drunkade fire jumping party action

jay, john, dan and yours very truly set off saturday evening for some stealth camping.  upon arrival, i noticed with some chagrin that my chosen stop was kinda close to the road, a fact that went unnoted last time, cause there were leaves on the trees.  this caused mild paranoia, but we set up shop, […]

rural tools

not really a biking post (other than being at the cottage for week-end biking), but.. it’s sometimes interesting what tools you find laying around over here in the garden. you might have thought it was the 1st of May not the 1st of October?

It was a campagnolo 10 speed record, short-cage carbon, ti, aluminum, and plastic affair: Needless to say the part that broke was the carbon outer plate. Not the alu knuckles, plastic pulley wheels, ti and alu bolts, or even the steel pivots. The […]

The Shins are from here. 4:11 AM Apr 30th from TwitterBerry Good morning! Feeding kids and getting ready […]

Who Likes The Trials Riding?

ok, again: the happy yum yum ride.

yeah, so, it didnt work the first time.  maybe no one HEARD that there is more food than riding.  More drink than pedal.  More relaxing than huff puffing.  Well, here it is, again:  The Happy Yum Yum Ride.  We gotta pick a date that people can make, and really, let us know, and if we […]
