Managed to watch #slayingthebadger  again. That's twice now. I figure about 22 more viewings should cover it. #cycling

I started riding #cyclocross  last year. After my race, I often stay in order to watch both the men and women's open so I can learn better skills (and the beer). After watching this guy race many times last season, I grew to admire his style on the bike. But now that I learn more about him as a person, and absorb that information in the context of a complex problem in a very difficult sport, I find that I admire his style off the bike too.

I missed the verse in Ye Old Cyclocross Testament that read, "If thou attempts to race without gloves, thou will blister and bleed from the hands."  Will. Not. Try. That. Again. Ever.  #cycolocross   #joeysok

I recently rode a couple hundred  miles in Washington County Maine. I have to give a big shoutout to the drivers up there. They were probably the most cycling friendly motorists that I have ever encountered and I deeply appreciated their willingness to share their roads. #cycling   #downeast

Here's to the "holy shit" realization that Camille Paglia is probably one of my "nearest neighbors."   How does that even happen?

Hmmm. Kind of scary how efficient G+ hasn't gotten with their "You may know" feature.  <sarcasm>It's almost like they were reading all my emails</sarcasm>.  #privacy

I know this is going to be sad, but I am a climber and I need to see it.   #Boulder  holds the film down Aug 20 - 23 at the Dairy Performing Arts Center.  Going to be a lot of shaved legs in the theater. #cycling   #pantani   #movie  
In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia – a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions – the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which ...

I am an "old school" kind of guy that usually goes to barbers. But today I went to Amore. Sam and Kym were very friendly. Kym did a wonderful job cutting my hair, educating me about some hair products -- turns out that Dial soap, my old standard, is not an official hair care product ; - ) . I had a lot of fun and they are highly recommended!

We were driving across Wyoming in late March when my son smartly decided that we needed to stay in another a corporate motel/hotel like we needed a hole in the head. So he got on his iPhone and started looking for hot springs. He's bright, he knew he was going to have to get mom to sign off on this side-trip, so he found and suggested an old hotel with some historic charm. Once he started to read the reviews out loud, we almost decided against making a reservation. That would have been a mistake! We enjoyed our stay a great deal. We were there in the off-season, everything was charming and slow, and maybe that helped to make it fun. We had lovely conversations with the entire staff, the owner Gail, and the chef (who is well trained, I am sorry I have forgotten his name). Is the building old? Yes. That's the point! It's an historic old building and it has its charms -- and shame on the people that stay there and don't find them! If you are looking for the Waldorf; well, you are not going to find that. But if you realize this is Idaho, and you are looking for an interesting place in an interesting little town with some bonus hot springs thrown in, this place will work just fine. We did eat in the hotel dining room. The review about 'the worst food' is three years old (and I cannot imagine the current chef worked there then). Yes, the menu can seem a bit pricey in these little boutique places but it is part of the experience. We bumped into the chef, we discussed the menu, he made recommendations and they were all very good. The owner filled in for someone that needed the night off and it was fun to talk to her about the hotel. She recommended a nice regional whiskey for me at the end of the meal. In peak season, when the place is full, they probably need to adhere to a stricter level of discipline; but we had arrived late, settled in late, and ate dinner late. They graciously extended their "soaking" hours for us so that we could enjoy the hot springs as long as we did so quietly. We appreciated the personalized give and take that occurred. So if you have reasonable expectations and prefer things charming and interesting rather than perfect, I think you will like this place. We sure did. I should also mention that our dog was welcomed as well and we would happily stay here again.

I had to the pleasure to fish out of the Bend/Sunriver area for four or five years. I cannot say enough good things about Fred Foisset and The Hook. He is a top notch guide, proprietor and human being. If you are visiting the area and need a guide, he's your man. If you live in the area and need a good local fly shop, he's your man. He doesn't have customers, he has friends. If you are in Central Oregon, The Hook should be your fly shop, particularly if you want to explore the magnificent still water opportunities in Oregon. 10/10.

Recently moved to Boulder. I brought them my beloved Wilier Team Izoard. They installed compact cranks, a new cassette on a new wheelset and a new chain. They fixed a few other issues and problems. They explained and priced everything clearly before the job and called me when an unanticipated issue arose during the job. They did first rate work and the bike rides perfectly. I had to wait about 10 days to get my bike into the shop but they did all the work in one day and it was worth the wait. About 6 years ago - when I lived in Seattle - I ordered a pair of hand-built wheels. I had posted a question about wheels on a cycling forum and the reply from this shop was so straightforward, informative and lacking in bullshit that I asked them to build wheels for me. Those wheels are still true and ride great. Vecchios is a no-nonsense, high competency shop that does the work right.

Just relocated to Boulder. Stopped in to get my fishing license and bearings. A first rate experience; these guys are passionate and care about what they do . . . no doubt that includes catching 100s of fish when they are on the water, but it also includes taking care of you when you are in their store. Stop reading reviews, go to this shop.
