Trek’s Performance-Geometry

As I demonstrate in our Madone Huggacast, Trek’s performance-geometry is great for off-season weight gain …

PBP - God bless the Italians!

8pm Monday: the 16th edition of PBP leaves Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. I went for a brisk 8 mile walking tour of Paris in the morning, then went back to the hotel and got four hours of sleep.

Biker-pampered city streets?

In a poorly-written and argued editorial for the Seattle PI, Dean Trier, takes on Cascade and I presume the Stone Way issue. He rants on about several other topics and it’s not entirely clear what his problem is with cyclists, other than I think he just likes cars better, and claims that Seattle has biker-pampered city streets. Maybe he’s a Ken Schram wanna be, but uhm (long pause), I challenge anyone that thinks Seattle cyclists are pampered to join me for a ride down Alaskan Way.

Have a read for yourself and leave it to the PI to drum up web traffic with an article about cycling and then, of course, a Soundoff.

Is it satire? Maybe, but if it was, it wasn’t constructed well enough to be comedic.
