Surviving the ride inside

Cyclists come up with all sorts of ways to suffer through training, especially indoors. This year in rain-soaked Seattle, I’ve set an all-time personal record for riding inside, and have timed my workouts to repeats of Law and Order. Starting at the doink doink, I’ll get the Cosmos going, usually have a rest cycle during the commercials, and ride on through until the heinous crime is solved.

Nick at 53x11 composes music for his rides, some cyclists watch entire stages of Le Tour, the best of police chases, or a movie. My wife Pam finds the most gossipy skinny-model trash TV programs and noted that if MTV actually played music videos. she’d watch those.

How do you get through the trainer grind?

Museeuw a fallen hero

Normally, we leave the race coverage to Cycling News et al, but today’s vague admission by Museeuw gave me pause. Museeuw was a hero of mine, a powerful big-ring rouleur who was also el dope. Last year, when the Landis allegations broke, I posted on what I believed about cycling and that holds true today.

I believe in the bike and don’t believe anyone else.

Carbon Commuter Wheels (Star Trek Lunchbox)

You could sell those old race wheels on eBay or Craigslist or use them to commute! Andy, from Hed Cycling sent us this photo of his commuter – Besides the wheels, I particularly like the Star Trek lunchbox action.

Bodum Saves me in Portland

I’m in Portland, visting clients, talking new technologies for bikes, and possibly going to see a new bike. After a restless night in a hotel, my Bodum travel press poured a cup of coffee with creme! Nice! While it’s not the perfect cup we’ve discussed before, the pour sure brightened my day.

Moocher gets Oscar nod

This just in: Jackie Earle Haley, best known by Bike Huggers everywhere as Moocher in Breaking Away, just got nominated for an Oscar for his role in Little Children.

As far as I can tell, he’s the first Breaking Away cast member to be nominated for an Oscar or Golden Globe since Barbara Barrie was nominated for playing Dave’s mom Evelyn.
