Perry Roubaix

Had a great time riding the "Perry Roubaix" this last Saturday with some folks from 21st Ave Bicycle and Swift Racing. Some chose to go very very fast.  The fastest riders I know finished the 50 miles in 3 hours and were dropped by the leading group around mile 35. That's insane. I was really pleased to finish in just under 4 hours with help in cross and head winds from Carl and Nick who rode with me most of the way. 

The weather was beautiful and the new bike build was perfect for the mix of large loose gravel, pavement, and hard packed dirt. I am quickly gaining ultimate confidence in the 40c WTB Nano. 

Undoubtedly the best part was hanging out with some rad people and getting to see some country that I haven't seen. I'm really looking forward to the Dalles Mountain 60 next month. Check out the 21st Ave Bicycles blog for some more photos and another write up from Nick. 

 Great weather, great roads

Scenic as fuck

It's Alive...

The Cross Check is finally back together and I took a quick 10mi shakedown cruise in Forest Park. It looks great and rides better. More to come on the whole process maybe, if I get around to it before I forget it all. Hopefully I get busy riding and don't get around to it.

Bunyan Velo #5

Check out Bunyan Velo Issue #5 with some great photographs and articles. One of which features yours truly as one of the most unsuccessful bike fisherman ever.
