Backwards bike. Left goes right. Right goes left.

Intriguing way of demonstrating how we all have a reprogrammable bias.

Kicked my butt

First ride in the snow.  Harder than I was expecting, but lots of fun and well worth it. (Need to wear thicker socks next time.)

Rode out on the Schuylkill River trail and then back along the power line.  Lots of x-country skiers along the trail - initially tried following the ski tracks but discovered it was easier to ride in virgin snow.   I really liked the late afternoon winter light on this section of the trail.  Thinking there might be a fatbike in my future.

Finally got around to putting the new 'designer' KMC chain on the bike. Shifts nicely on the stand - will see how it feels in the woods this weekend

Twenty minutes into what should have been an hour+ ride, my seatpost snaps right off. Was little nervous riding back to the trailhead with that jagged piece of metal back there.

Photos from five-day Grand Canyon mountain biking trip with Rim Tours at the beginning of July.  Biked down Arizona trail to the Grand Canyon park border and then across to Locust Point and the Rainbow Rim trail. (A good number of the photos are actually frame grabs from video taken while riding, so quality isnt so great.)

Doing some cleaning and found this.  Putting it here so I can throw out the paper it was written on.

The Plan

In the Beginning was The Plan
And then came the Assumptions
And the Assumptions were without form
And The Plan was completely without substance
And the darkness was upon the face of the workers
And they spoke among themselves saying
"It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh."
and the workers went unto their Supervisors and sayeth,
"It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, 
Such that none may abide by it."
And the managers went unto their Directors and sayeth,
"It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
and the Directors spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another
"It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
and the Directors went unto the Vice Presidents and sayeth unto them
"It promotes growth and is very powerful."
And the Vice Presidents went unto the President and sayeth unto him,
"this new Plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency
Of this company, and in these Areas in particular."
And the President looked upon The Plan, 
And saw that it was good, and the Plan became Policy.
This Is How Shit Happens.

Trying to read posts on +Google Reader with +Chrome is an exercise in frustration lately.  Pages freeze as soon as you try to scroll past a post with a video in it.  You'd think they could at least make their own browser work with their own web sites.
