I try and live by Rule 5.

4:37 on the bike just now. Been a few weeks since I've done any longer rides. Ugh are my legs tired. One of the guys I ride with attacks EVERY stinkin little rise in the road. Ooof. That's regardless of whether the guys riding with him want him to go that hard up em. The other of the guys I rode with is having health issues and can't get up a hill to save his life. Combine the two and you have an 'interesting' ride.

We went in a loop and managed to have a headwind 100% of the ride.

Hope your Friday is going well

Fellow ADVriders. I recently made a video for the Salsa Cycles Video Contest using my Fargo Ti and the city of LA as the backdrop. My video made the finals and now there's a chance that I could win the Grand Prize! What's that you say? Well, it's a Mukluk Ti Complete AND a trip to Alaska to ride it!

The voting is open to the public and I need as many votes I can get. Votes are made by logging into your facebook and twitter accounts. One or the other, but if you have both you can vote twice.

I'd really appreciate it if any of you would consider voting for my video. I've never entered a video contest like this before and I feel like I have a really good shot at it. If you have any friends that would vote please tell them too!

Here's the link to my blog with the video and here's the link to the Salsa website to place your vote.

Please help send me to Alaska!

This has been making the rounds amongst my riding buddies on FB. Something for me to think about on those days when the group is recceding into the distance without moi.

Cycling road trip started yesterday.

Put both my road and my mountain bike on the back of the car and pointed it out of town. Drove 950km before I had to shut it down.
Today I get to my first riding stop in Vernon BC. Going to hook up with a good mate of mine and get a couple of days worth of riding in the sunshine.

so stoked

Submitted to the ADV Bicycle Thread for approval:
I was talking to my cyclosensei/LBS owner re: building a road bike. He said "wait a minute", went in back and came out with a LeMond Arrivee frame (TI!) and AlphaQ fork in my size. It is mine for free provided I go through him for all the componentry (much of which will be take-offs and used stuff anyways). I'm responsible for getting the frame cleaned up. It's unpainted, but the decals are thrashed.

I think this will be the way to go, but was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of this particular frame. My brief Interwebz search last night yeilded mostly positive reviews.

4707 as of yesterday. 331 miles in August. Not bad, especialy considering I nmissed two rides the week because isaac was fucking up our weather. I'm at 2357 miles. I should be at 2333. For the first time this year I'm ahead of schedule. Sweet!

Did you upload it to Strava? Doesn't count unless you did.

I'm sure one of my buddies did. Here's at least the first 2/3rds. ...at D's speed anyway. The other buddy may or may not have uploaded anything. I'm not about to join just to go look him up.
