Superlight Dahon Folder

Dahon folder

BikeRadar.com is at Eurobike and has snapped some shots of the hot new Dahon Folder. Can’t wait to check to the new gear when BikeHugger rolls into Vegas for Interbike 2007!



A Farm Kermesse

For those of you that race into the Fall and winter, Kruger’s Kermesse is coming up and it’s not only a great race, but a social happening with a beer garden and fun for the whole family. For me though, racing on manure-splattered roads near farms has always made me nervous, like I’d get some butt-bug, like Tom Danielson did.



Fixie Popularity

Ya know Fixies have passed the tipping point into the mainstream when they make the “weekend activities” section of a local newspaper … check this article from the Daily Utah Chronicle and these words of advice

“Watch out for hills,” Sjodin said. “You gotta man up if you’re going to ride a ”fixie’ to the U.”

Man up … fixies are “manly.”



Riding Denali

Someday we’ll ride in Alaska again and on the roads of Denali National Park, like this photo

From Japan (Part 18): Kanuma

i found a few more pix from my Japan trip

Maiko’s dad made sure we stopped here on the way from the train station to the hotel. Maiko’s family really went out of their way to entertain us.

Maiko’s dad even found this inn called the Cycling Terminal for us to stay. They had a cycling theme to the lobby’s decor with a number of late ’80s cycling posters. Mainly, it’s a nice but basic Japanese hotel with tatami mat rooms and immediate proximity to some good cycling.

Later on, the family and a business partner’s family took us out to a yakiniku restaurant (think Japanese BBQ), and we ate outselves silly…I ate things that I couldn’t identify. I ate raw beef. It was all good…well maybe not the tripe and liver.

Right now Maiko is back in Japan with her family. I just want to thank you again!
