I qualified for Paris-Brest-Paris this weekend -- WOOHOO!
SPOILER ALERT: I'm now officially qualified for the 18th Edition of Paris-Brest-Paris! I'll be packing my bags for France in August in the hopes of becoming an ancienne. This past weekend, the SLO Randonneurs hosted the final event of their inaugural ACP series: the Pinnacles Travel 600k.

And here's photos from Day 1 of L'Eroica California! 
I was in vintage bicycle heaven at the first annual L'Eroica California this past weekend in Paso Robles. Ever since I first heard of this event several years ago, I've been entranced by the romantic notion of paying homage to the past through this cycling celebration. It's like the Renaissance ...

Phew, a jam-packed weekend of fun!
Phew, it was a jam-packed weekend of fun! First, a big posse of us (Frankie, Jason, Kat, Paul, TBO, Wilson and myself) rode from Lafayette up Diablo; then TBO & I headed to Del Valle for an awesome camping trip organized by fellow rando Brad; then Ann, Denise and Jason met me on Sunday morning ...

Loved the ride to the junction.  And so glad we didn't go on to Mt. Ham!

I had low expectations for my 400k down in SLO since I was recovering from the flu -- but I think it was the best brevet I've ridden so far!   
This year, as I chose the brevets I needed to qualify for this year's Paris-Brest-Paris, I mixed up my itinerary again and considered events outside of San Francisco and Davis. Fortunately, the San Luis Obispo Randonneurs, a new club led by the human dynamo Vickie Backman, was offering a full ...

This whole trend fascinates me...#foodporn
 
"In #Korea, people can tune in on their laptops and cell phones any time, any day and watch people eat—and talk about eating. These “online eaters” are neither chefs nor restaurateurs, but the stars of the South #Korean digital #food phenomenon: Mukbang."

Another fine journalist who will be greatly missed has departed for the big newsroom in the sky...RIP
Mr. Carr, a shrewd and well-informed skeptic, wriggled away from the demon of drug addiction to become an unlikely name-brand media columnist at The New York Times.

Yeah, that was sad. I've truly benefitted from several things he's written...

L'Eroica California was AWESOME
The inaugural L'Eroica California kicked off this weekend and was an amazing experience. Jason and I chose the medium route (69 miles with over 5300 ft. of climbing), as we have some big randonneuring rides coming up and wanted to save some energy in our legs. Plus my easiest gear on my ...

Many of you know about my quest for a vintage, period-correct bike that I could ride for L'Eroica down in SLO. Sadly, the seller in Minneapolis was asking too much for the chrome Schwinn Paramount I had my eye on (I noticed she's since dropped the price considerably, but it's still above what I wanted to spend.)
Then this beautiful Pinarello popped up on eBay! It's an '85 Record frame painted in a "Metal Rose" color with chrome details (chain stays, dropouts, fork crown) that was built up by a shop in the South Bay. She came equipped with a full Campy Super Record group, Cinelli bars and stem and Mavic rims, so in a way, she's coming back home! (Apparently the owner rode her in a few local centuries and the Death Ride.) Thanks to Shawn for going through the pain and suffering of wrapping the bars "harlequin style" (another item that's been sitting on my bucket list for a long time), to Pudu for giving it a tune-up and to Evan for selling me a lovely TA Specialties water bottle cage and pump holder (just need to find a pump...)
“My vintage-Italian-period-correct-bicycle dreams have come true! Meet my new-to-me #Pinarello, which I'll be riding in the upcoming #leroica down in SLO.…”
