The 4th

Uncle Sam and Road Construction Man

Happy 4th from Uncle Sam and Road Construction Man. These two were spotted earlier this year when our rouleur ride with a climb ended at the start of a parade. Also see another Uncle Sam on a Tall Bike and why ‘merica is great!

Glass, SRAM, Sun!



Picked up Google Glass on Monday, then spent Tuesday at SRAM’s new Development Center building up my Davidson Hotspur with SRAM Red 22 HRR. That’s the hydraulic rim brake version of 11-speed. You can follow how that event unfolded on G+, where I uploaded photos on-the-fly from Glass. Reviews and opinion are all forthcoming, of course. A recap from the Bicycle Urbanism Symposium too and hey we just launched a magazine! Our next issue is being worked on now.


A clear mountain view

Now that the sun is out in Seattle, even more riding than usual is planned. I was reminded of how beautiful this place is just before the plane landed at Seatac last night.

First bike I shot with Glass was a Google one.

Enjoy the 4th and the Tour.

In Colorado Springs with SRAM and Google Glass

Smart a phone

In Colorado Springs today for a media event about SRAM 22 and will shoot it from every angle, on every device, across operating systems! Even with a computer on my head, using Google Glass. Follow along on Google Plus where I’ll upload photos and videos as we install Hydro rim brakes.

A 100 Miles: West Seattle to Enumclaw and Back


Sign post after Little Euro climb

It’s good to ride a century, test your limits, and see what you can do. I’m not in super-endurance cycling (at least not now), but hearing more about riding big miles from my colleagues and also following the trend of Gravel Grinders and Grand Fondos. On Saturday we rode a West Seattle to Enumclaw loop. The route is along the valley, the Little Euro climb near Pacific, then to the Enumclaw Plateau, and back. To get up to the plateau, we followed a thin strip of pavement towards an old mill. It’s an access road that’s grown over for the past 30 years and required some Cyclocross skills to navigate.

An old mill access road

At 75 miles and a strong tailwind, we opened it up pushing 20, 21 and 23 mph at times to an average speed of 17.5 for the day. Here’s the route with embedded photos.
