REI Women’s CycleFest

It was a perfect day for a ride and I rode with Pam to the REI Seattle Women’s CycleFest. Bike Hugger was there with Union Bay Cycling, Wines of Washington Cycling Team to promote the sport to women, give out schwag, and meet all the cyclists.

If we met you there, hello! And thanks for visiting our blog.



Kenny Souza: Natural Power

Hugh Forrest, of SXSW fame, tipped us to Kenny Souza: Natural Power, a full-length documentary currently in production on the course of the 2006 RAAM. I couldn’t think of a better documentary topic, what those racers put their bodies through is incredible (including riding through sleep-deprived hallucinations), and the documentary will capture, “the sacrifice, discipline and focus needed to undertake such an amazing journey.”

Highlights from the blog include Bob Roll and Ned Overend encouraging Kenny along the route.

Also see my post on “another fine day for riding” in Austin during SXSW earlier this year.



Taking a pull on the TDF Blog

As Frank announced, I’m guest posting on the Tour de France Blog for a few days. Frank is attending a funeral, spending time with his family, and I’m going take a pull for him.



More Whiz Bang Tour de France Tech

Just checked the NYTimes interactive TDF feature and it’s very whiz bangy, even more whizzy than the “ticker” from Velonews. Live commentary, standings, profiles, and more.



Seeing America feet-first, west to east

Cycling across the U.S.A | Touring Hardin

Bill Cook is a retired journalist doing an Adventure Cycling route across the USA (looks like their 30th Anniversary Premium Supported trip). Adventure Cycling got started back in the ’70s, and was called Bikecentennial when it helped create the TransAmerica Trail. Thousands of riders (galleries: Richard Rathe, general) toured the country for the US Bicentennial in 1976.

Adventure Cycling is celebrating their 30th birthday, and there’s still time to make one of the organization’s Birthday Bashes, in Boulder August 12th.

Cook is about one-fourth of the way, near the Little Big Horn in Montana, and blogging the whole trip for McClatchey Newspapers. He’s a recumbent hugger, and has a company, Barcroft Cycles, that designs and builds ‘bents, including the Dakota model he’s riding to Washington, DC. The trip was marred June 25th, when one of the party was killed in a car-bike accident in Washington state. Yesterday was a much better day: “one of those perfect days: Lovely weather, a nice tailwind, remote empty country, a long downhill run and a short riding day.”

All we can hope for.
