Extreme Cycling in Alaska

alaska_girl.jpg Researching routes for an upcoming tour in Alaska, I found Up in Alaska a blog written by an, “Alaska journalist who likes to bicycle in horrendous conditions and eat goldfish crackers and Pepsi for breakfast.” Right on. Seeing a photo of Jill riding in the rain reminded me of our tour a few years back.

Seattle Bicycle Touring Club

SBTC wrote to say hello and cool. They’re an informal group of recreational cyclists promoting rides and fun for its members. There’s a lot going on in their clubhouse, including maps and a gallery.

Bikes, Beer & BMX

This weekend’s Bike Expo is nearly upon us and I’m excited to be bringing the “best of” to those of you who aren’t able to make it out for what is arguably Seattle’s mecca of cycling culture. While I am personally hoping for some dry weather, a light drizzle will certainly not keep me from hitching up the trailer and hauling the family out to kick off the cycling season.

Between the 150+ exhibitors and a packed presentation schedule, I plan to bring plenty of cash for the beer garden and a comfortable pair of shoes. You’ll find me in my Bike Hugger Shirt, camera in-hand.

Bike Expo this Weekend

Bike Expo is this weekend and Kelli will blog all about it, including beers and BMX (I don’t know if we’d ever cover BMC without a beer enticement). Kelli blogged for us last year and posted how NOT to ride the STP.

Another allergy season

“Hello allergy season,” I said yesterday in the afternoon … “I see you’re here to totally kick my ass again!” With the unusual weather pattern this year, I predicted lots of pollen and a difficult season. After years of allergies, I just get in the best shape I can, ride tempo and easy through the worst of it, and relax.

I’ve been as drugged up as Rush Limbaugh, tried herbs, and even acupuncture, and it all comes down to the fact that I’ll feel much better once the trees stop doing their thing.

Even worse is the summer smog and I watch the air quality here.

Anyone else feeling it like me and how do you cope?
