Find the gravel when you can. Find it, ride it, and get to work in a better mood than you expected. Living close to the river and working near the airport gives me quite the choice of routes. Some offer more gravel and trails than others, but sometimes just the little bits make the difference. [...]
I get sick about once a year. It usually really blows and completely wipes me out for about three to four days. The Worlds was a hoot, and coincidentally it drained me. Tuesday morning I had a doctor appointment and that’s when it all went bad. I don’t normally go to the doctor. The majority [...]
Bike Magazine coverage of SSCXWC10 Sweet. Thanks Colin!
Heh. This is why it takes me days to put something up. I’ve been off the train for four hours and I’ve got nothing to say but huh. Or heh. Even when I leave for the train early I end up rushing. But Matt and I both made the train, and promptly set up shop [...]
This building in SE has had the same landscaping arrangement for at least four years. Normally not such a bad thing to be consistent, but if I worked at this building I’d probably get a good chuckle every day. Hell I get a good laugh every time I pass it.

For the ten people who read this blog, I supply the following info: Share the Park Directly from the site: This event is intended as a peaceful action to voice our disappointment with the recent decision by Nick Fish and Portland Parks & Recreation to say no to increased bike access to Forest Park. We [...]
A couple days late, per the usual. The Rainier race is one of my favorite cross races of the season. There is a grueling climb that weeds out the suckers, which turns right into a sweet downhill that weeds out all the wussies. The rest of the course is a slog through rough grass, and [...]
So yeah. Friday. It was a long day at the office, and by 5 I knew that all takers had backed out. This wasn’t surprising to me all that much, but I also wasn’t going to let it hamper my spirits. After a brief text session with Drew I met up at Alberta Park to [...]
I’m not from Boise, but I would be pissed if I was. Also this is tonight: Kiss your ass goodbye!
