Dream Slalom Edit

Here’s a Dream Slalom edit to bump over the Wednesday hump.



Right Side U.P.

Open UP

The OPEN U.P just arrived, and it’s like Christmas in July; at least for those of us into riding road bikes on dirt. Away from the pavement is another type of riding: acute, contrasting, and with scenery like I shared yesterday on Medium. The U.P is one of the adventure bikes I’m riding late summer and into the fall. I hope past another beaver dam.

Scott Addict CX on the Iron Horse Trail

Iron Horse Trail: Three of Four Tunnels


On a suffering scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being “on the phone calling for help,” this ride was a 2. What hitting level 2 did do, is remind us of past 5s, and we knew how to get back to the car safely. This summer we’ve been riding every inch of the Iron Horse Trail and making our way, trailhead by trailhead, towards Ellensburg. We’ve ridden through 3 of the 4 tunnels on the State’s rails-to-trails park.

Read the the rest of the story about our Iron Horse trail rides on Medium Bicycles, and in the next issue of our magazine when it drops later this week. I had a Scott Addict CX-1 with me.

Jim Made it to San Francisco

Did Jim Make it to San Francisco?


If you saw my story about the Phish concert and Jim on Medium or Apple News, it turns he made it to San Francisco. What a wonderful ending, and hey the Internet is still good for something!

Let’s Eat Grandma “Eat Shiitake Mushrooms”

Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth are two 17 yr olds out of Norwich, England who perform as Lets Eat Grandma. There music is by turns quirky, dream-like, childish, enchanting. Their video performance of “Deep Six Textbook” for NME’s Basement Sessions gives an idea of their live presentation, while their official video for ” Eat Shiitake Mushrooms” is looks like something pulled from the vaults of MTV’s 120 Minutes. In the video for “Eat Shiitake Mushrooms”, the viewer follows the two girls as they adventure on bicycles into the woods. A really sharp-eyed viewer might spot that 1) the bikes are cheap crap and 2) one of the two bikes has the fork positioned backwards.

The backwards fork reminds me of the legendary Klein with backwards fork from the early days of Seinfeld. However, Jerry never really claimed to ride the bike, whereas in the LEG video one of the girls is actually riding the bike with the backwards fork. Maybe it’s my imagination, but I think she looks distinctly less happy riding than her counterpart.

I’m not really sure which of the girls has that bike. Walton and Hollingworth look enough alike to be sisters, and to be honest they’re kinda creepy to boot.
