Tarmac and a Tree

Well before that bitterly disappointing Seahawks game, rode this Tarmac to a big tree. Then it was

One. F’ing. Play. One. F’ing. Yard. Run. The. Ball.

CX-1 at Worlds

Sram cx-1

An impressive list of 38 athletes from seven nations are racing on CX-1. To name a few: Ellen Van Loy, Sophie de Boer, Elle Anderson, Kaitlin Antonneau; Toon Aerts, Yannick Peeters, and Logan Owen. For the Elite Men, there’s Wout van Aert, Jeremy Power, and Tom Meesuen. I reviewed CX-1 last year and Mark V wrote about 1 x drivetrains too. It’s a great group for racing, sure…riding around takes some getting used to because of the gear ratios.

Turbo Kid at Sundance: BMX and 80s Nostalgia


A post-apocalypse, BMX movie. Yes! And it’s an official Sundance Selection.

It’s 1997. In a ruined post-apocalyptic world, the orphaned Kid survives on his own through drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water. When his perpetually chipper, pink-haired new best friend Apple is kidnapped by a minion of evil overlord Zeus, the Kid summons the courage of his comic book hero and prepares to deliver turbocharged justice to Zeus, his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron, and their vicious masked army.

Here’s a making of video from Sundance and it was adapted from this short made by the Roadkill Superstars from Montreal.



Duwamish at Work

Dumamish

The Duwamish is an industrialized estuary, and Seattle’s only river. It’s estimated that less than 1/2 of Seattleites know the river exists or that it’s on the Superfund list. We cross it at least once every ride and it’s finally being cleaned up after 100 years of pollution, from Boeing, WWII, sewage, and runoff. I took this photo at S. Riverside Drive Park where a new trail is being built for pedestrians and cyclists, and connects to the South Park Bridge. One of Seattle’s more famous citizens, Macklemore has even spoken up about our river, and joined the cause at River for All.

The Duwamish is part of the Seattle I see.
