Pisgah/Dupont adventure continued

Beautiful Dupont senery ED kicking it on the top of Big Rock Candy Mountain! Crazy enough to see an airstrip in the middle of the woods, but the basketball goal put it over the top. If there was a ball I would have worked on my free throws. The camera did a nice job of…

Day 2 of Secret Training

Day two started with my famous blueberry pancakes and bacon for the crowd. Lots o’ coffee, lots o’ looking at the maps and thinking of what to do. It sure is nice to go ride and not have to have any concept or concern for time. We decided that a super tour of Dupont was…

Starting to get behind…

For the pre-game preparations I thought I would replace the two year old tube in the indy fab’s seatbag while at work. Well, when I…

Friday Night Lights

Did some Townsend to Cades Cove out Rich Mtn. last night after work. Super bitchin’.

Coolest bike? ever

Was looking at a bicycling magazine this morning at work and was reading about Austin, TX bike rides or something and noticed that one of the shops was Austin Bike Zoo, so of course I had to check it out. What I found appears to be some beautifully crazy cyclists that made this contraption. It…
