Hey Andrew-
Not sure about the finer points of Strava (whether you have to make an account or not). I use ridewithgps.com for some motorcycle/bicycle stuff, it seems similar. Here's a pic (of something like what you're talking about, that I just drew up).

Thanks! It's all easy training rides for now, but will be a job to string together multiple 50-mile days, six in a row.

Should be a great ride, and a nice season for it. Are you staying in B+Bs along the way? I always find myself riding (motos) up that way, I gravitate towards 128 and comtche-ukiah road.

Crashing on floors of family and friends first few nights (Napa, Healdsburg, Boonville) then at motels/B+B along the coast. No camping gear to weigh us down! Riding with a friend from college, we used to take long day rides to clear our heads after engineering exams

Thanks for the tip, that's a great tool. Here's my better route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2183399

Strada Bianche is this Sat.

Think 'hilly Paris-Roubaix in the sun of Tuscany' and you've got the idea

I think this image is one of the big reasons I when NAHBS is covered incessantly on the cycling websites.


VeloNews NAHBS 2013 Awards

Best Beard: Kevin Batchelor, Mosaic Cycles. This is without a doubt the most hotly contested category at NAHBS. There are, in fact, more beards than bikes here, and the show's acronym secretly stands for North American Humongous Beard Show. So it is with great pride that we present Mr. Batchelor with the coveted Beardie, awarded for his most fiery beard. Honorable mentions also go to Josh Culbertson of Avery County Cycles and almost every other male at the show. Photo: Matthew Beaudin | VeloNews.com


Not my cuppa, but if it floats YOUR boat...

I was pretty stoked that Bishop Bicycles from Baltimore won a category.

Though, I'm not familiar with "Yelp!", this guy uses it for everything. Based on his RR, it must work pretty good, especially along the coast.

stupid, isn't it??
i mean, there really isn't that much new or different going on there, but seriously? has being one of the hipsters become so important now that even VeloNews has nothing better to report on?

no joke!
especially considering how beautifully Bishop executed this head tube arrangement, it's a pity Shimano didn't have something more worthy.
(Bishop; very nice guy, BTW, and one of the few builders doing anything i find really interesting these days,...)

He should've used something like a Grand Cru crankset and, then, stripped and polished the rest of groupset to match. Better yet, there's enough vintage, Campy drillium stuff around to build the rest of the bike around that beautiful frameset.
