Bonus Miles and a Day in the Sun
     It's already been three months since my last brevet or permanent post, and I'm happy to report that my current R-12 streak is still in place, as well as a pretty solid streak of commutes to work- the most consistency I've demonstrated in years.  Most o...

Retrospec... what the heck is that?
This has probably been a really long time coming, so better late than never. A few years back I had some Dirty Kanza  aspirations, but no bike.   Alas, I've been ever fond of the concept of under-biking  ... the smile on my face in some of the photos from t...

Leavenworth - Oregon - Leavenworth 300k: "This is what we do."
"The weather (and route) is what it is.  You can either handle it, or you can't."   - Les Stroud I chose to preface this post with this simple, and one of my favorite, quotes; said at least a decade ago during one of my favorite episodes of one of my favori...

What ever happened to those fancy bags?
Something about the crunch of fall leaves and the need to pack an extra layer or two for brisk fall mornings brings me back to cycling baggage.  Those fast summertime brevets with the tiny repair-kit seat bag and empty jersey pockets are slipping away... ti...

The Summer Retrospective ... gone?
  The massive, 20,000-words-or-so post with the full summer retrospective and ride reports dating from June suffered an accidental deletion this morning, and after some rather frantic and unsuccessful clipboard recovery and cache scouring attempts, I simply...

On Commuting
My rhymes and structure  and meter aren't great but I know how I  feel, so, I'll lay it out straight. The alarm sounds.   It's dark, .... ...but the coffee is hot.   The daily decision -  to drive, or to not. Zip up the bags,  air the low tire Out of the dr...

Post 7-Eleven
The concurrent pursuit of R-12 and P-12 awards has been interesting, thus far, having wrapped up this third month of action.  I'd almost forgotten to do it, in fact - the old habit of only pursuing one long ride per month being the "norm" in some ways had m...
