It’s finally feeling like summer!  And what did I do to celebrate?  Um, ride to the beach to EAT, of course!  I was able to convine a few people to make the 45 mile round trip ride from Anaheim Hills to Newport Beach.  We took the Santa Ana River Path which should have been easy [...]

Look!  I'm on the Globe webpage!

I’m back.
Technically, I was never really gone.  I was just busy blogging over here on a Specialized/Globe Bikes supported blog.  Why?  Because I can’t refuse a free bike when all they want from me is a little word barf–there was a bit of ranting (or soliciting sympathy, really) about the injuries I incurred while riding [...]

TV Dude.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a huge urban ride like this–I guess I forgot how much fun it used to be since I turned old [...]

Cruisin’ the Conejo was supposed to be my first organized metric century as well as Bobby’s.  Unfortunately for Bobby, he crashed hard at around mile 23 going down a long, straight decent at around 35 mph.  By the looks of this photo, I can’t stress how important it is to be wearing a helmet!  You [...]
