One-trick pony
It can't have been all that long ago that I considered myself a runner, but the most running I've done in the past couple weeks has been one terrible 5k training run and the semi-regular Couch to 5K training runs I've been doing with my nephew and his frien...

Pedaling for pancakes, biking for BBQ
With memories of last weekend's butt kicking chafing me like a cheap chamois, I had a bike-heavy spring break calendar. Thursday's mountain bike ride with Jacob and Friday's mountain bike ride with Luke and Casey were both scratched due to wet weather, so S...

Baptism By Mud
Patrick's first adventure race was the 36-hour Berryman Adventure Race...on a team made of completely of AR newbies.  My brother Jim and I also began with Berryman, and though it was only the 12 hour version, the race director commented, "Why you'd want to ...

Cold day in hell
The inaugural Rocheport Roubaix was billed as a winter cycling adventure on gravel, and winter did not fail to deliver.  Memories of last weekend's glorious warmth weren't enough to stave off the biting chill of a day when the freezing point sounded almost ...

Great gravel route!
Ever since Chuck and I first rode Massas Creek road I've been talking it up, and this Saturday I finally got to show it off to someone else. Bob and I headed west to Jonesburg to check out a loop he'd put together including M...

MLK weekend on bikes
The Berryman ride over the long Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend has become a Team Virtus tradition.  In the past, we've gone the night before and stayed with Luke's family, but with this year's mild forecast the guys were all about camping.  Being more of ...

2015 Tour of Hermann
Scheduled about 90 days before Dirty Kanza, Tour of Hermann is perfectly timed to be both a hard weekend of training and a good gauge of where your bike fitness is.  Last year I arrived in some of the best shape of life and with solid training behind me; th...

Babler Cold Nose-O
The St. Louis Orienteering Club's Cold Nose-O at Babler State Park was held on the last Sunday in January. This particular meet is a memorable one for me since, several years ago, it was my first solo attempt ...one which did not go well at all. Tears were ...
