April Fool’s Sun

YES! 70 degree weather hit yesterday and with it came the first sunburn of the year.

Praisejesus March is fucking OVER! One more month on my road bike and then mountain bike season will be here! WOOOOT! I think I am tossing out the Tour of Red River Gorge for Mohican 100.

Got some good riding in this week. I feel MUCH better. I will be “racing” Saturday and it’s going to be ugly. I pre-rode the course on burnt legs Tuesday night and trashed myself after 3 loops. I am dreading it big time. I am a big pussy on descents. Maybe I’ll catch them on the climb. Fuck it.

Women Of Dirt. (these women are fucking awesome, check em’ out)

LINKDUMP:

My little teammate Annie posted this link on Facebook to hot guys on bikes. They look more like douche bags on bikes to me.

Zen just sent me this. HEY YOU LESBIAN!. A turkish guy who thinks he can make you switch teams.

The Bike Snob wrote a book and is coming out. Lauren has all the 411 here.

Wicked dog video here. Pedigree dog food sucks though, so don’t ever buy it. Thanks for the video link, Jeni.

Did you hear about Contador’s hand surgery? It’s all right here. wink, wink. Thanks BGW.

Have a good weekend.

  1. …there are a few others like aso, organizers of “le tour” being bought by disney & the cyclingnews story about colnago’s development of leonardo da vinci’s flying bike but you really have to read well into the contador story to realize it’s bs…

    …glad you got some spring weather, judi & as for your race, despite having been sick, just give it your best (& i know you will)…it’s all about a learning experience, so stop worrying about shit & just ride safely…you’ll have a completely different attitude when the race is over…

  2. …joe, we may differ on politic but at least we can agree on that !!!…

    …okay, okay, happy april fools, bud…

    …sheesh – i ride like a big girl anyway…

  3. @ray – that was awesome. doesn’t surprise me pedigree would rip that off. they suck. the video was cool tho.

  4. bgw, politics shmolitics. No matter who you vote for you get government in the end. Cripes, lets talk about bikes. And booze.

  5. …tend to agree w/ ya, joetheelectrician…

    …these fucking heated debates go on regularly on this site (& at times, i’m guilty as charged) & while we might actually learn the odd new fact from each others banter, the contentiousness tends to foment divisiveness amongst folks who would be better off working towards a common goal of quality of life (cycling & otherwise) more than anything else…

    …there should be a fundamental cohesiveness…if you’re willing to ride a bike for “enjoyment” then you’re not afraid of both some serious hard work & a certain element of outright danger…there oughta be a bond there…

    …arguing about who’s version of the ‘g‘ is gonna better run the show, (& the ‘g‘ is gonna forever be running the show), really isn’t accomplishing a fucking thing…& to generalize, when the ‘g‘considers quality of life, it’s essentially considering it for the pampered elite…& nobody reading or commenting here fits the definition of “pampered elite”…

    …sometimes this site reminds me of a cat 3/4 race, riding into a headwind…

  6. Spot on; except to stipulate that ALL bike rides are, on some level, for the abovementioned “enjoyment”.

    Cripes, do you ever feel like political contentiosness (of whatever stripe and at all levels) is kinda like a bunch of fleas arguing over what the dog should do next>

  7. …re:- dogs n’ fleas…yep, & mostly the dog just keeps lickin’ & scratchin’ anyway…

  8. OK. For a few friday nights of my life a decade or more ago, I watched for the gate drop at the Chandler BMX park along side Melissa Buell. She was fast. She had girl balls. I took my boy balls and went home. Thus, the vid is good shit. Top-notch ladies and dirt. Braaaap!

    there. I said it.

  9. what ???…ya mean a woman’s place ain’t bare foot n’ pregnant in the kitchen, cookin’, washin’ dishes n’ doing laundry ???…damn !!!…

    …actually i’ve seen that vid before & definitely applauded the action of those young ladies…

    …& not to take anything away from them, but the vid that totally impressed me recently was ‘kranked 8 revolve – coastal crew‘…the infrastructure work involved, the amazing riding skills & while watching it, i was thinking what a beautifully unrestrained flow it had to it…sure, the vid was edited but those cats hadda have it individually as well as be used to riding together to pull that shit off…
    …that was bicycle fucking ballet in the outrageous setting of the british columbia woods…wow !!!…
