Hello friends! It's the start of the holiday consumerist frenzy in this part of the world. And even though you may feel above it all, maybe you need to get someone a gift. Or that you just want to get some cool stuff yourself. I don't blame ya! Over in my Store, I have some... Continue Reading →
Three Speed October: Did you participate? It’s time to check in.
Hello friends! Yeah, this is long overdue, as the Challenge itself ended two weeks ago. What can I say, it’s been an interesting couple weeks. Now is time for me to get back on top of all this.
Did you participate in the Three Speed October challenge? Please get in touch. Summarize your rides thusly:
- Tuesday: 7 mile trek down to the river on the Superbe.

Chehalem Range Ramble for tomorrow CANCELLED.
Yeah, I hate to do a cancel with less than 12 hours before the ride starts. And yes, I realize that I cancelled last year's ride. And yes, the weather is supposed to suck tomorrow. But that's not the primary reason for the cancel. Basically, it's mechanical. The front brakes on the Bantam are having... Continue Reading →
