A triple triangle for gravel and just about anything else from GT bicycles. I’ll ride the Grade next week in Park City during PressCamp.
Down at the docks
We took photos, did touristy things, and heard about the Cortana road map from Marcus. I used to work on the MS campus and hadn’t seen Lake Bill before or heard those stories or seen the walk of fame, so that was fun. Passed on the Chihuly experience, because my local cup was filled to the brim last year with glass art.
Rode the Brompton to the Seattle Waterfront for a trip to Blake Island
As my intro to Dan’s notes on mobile photography says, “We’re back with Tern in Vegas for another social ride during SXSW V2V next month.” We’ll have Lumias with us and I expect some of the new MSFT crew will ride too.
When a black cat crosses your path
Our 13th issue drops in a month with a Friday the 13th, so that was an obvious theme to the strange rituals and superstitions that accent bike culture like flavorful, crunchy salad toppings.

KEEN went back to what made them famous, the sport sandal, and reinvented it with a couple of cords. What they came up with was UNEEK.
Using innovative two cord construction, KEEN UNEEK molds to your feet for the perfect fit. The two cords and a simple, free-moving cord junction design allow the upper to move and adapt to the shape of foot. This construction provides freedom of movement while providing security and structure. The lightweight PU midsole delivers durability and comfort while the high traction rubber outsole with razor siping ensures secure footing.
If you’re out biking on a tour or just exploring neighborhoods beyond the one next to your own, it’s nice to slip on something other than cycling shoes and walk about.
I find that the UNEEK sandals have a lighter, thinner sole that perhaps has a bit less arch support than other KEEN sandals. Not my choice for running, but they work well playing around in the city or on the rocks and in the water of the shore. They kinda remind me of woven moccasins. I would say they run about 1/2 size small. $100 retail.
