B.I.K.E. The Movie

Fredric King, producer Fountainhead films, sent us a B.I.K.E. The Movie pre-release packet with DVD and I dug the artwork so much I scanned and uploaded it for this post.

Single Speed Across America

I couldn’t believe it either, when I read that John Spurgeon road RAAM on a single speed built by Ira Ryan cycles in Portland. I was checking in on the results, there’s a mention, and Bike Portland posted earlier on it as well…

To me that’s sorta like using a fully-loaded track bike to tour, but then again the roadies I know probably think the Bettie is stupid.

Derailed

My biggest problem with bike racing is that it keeps you from riding your bike as much as you might like (huh?). We are in full-swing “Crit” season right now. The general rule to do well is race, and rest, or maybe do short, intense intervals. Races usually comprise of 60-75 minutes of a lung-busting tour around 4 city blocks. I like crits, I tend to do ok at them, but it’s days like today (Sunny, 78deg) that I get a little miffed that I have to race a crit. I spend a solid 4 hours driving to the race, getting ready, racing, and driving home. What a waste of a perfectly good day?!

I’m tempted to race getting the Tandem back together and rolling to Portland with my wife in the STP. At the least I think I’ll be taking some time off the circuit to get back into those long, sunny rides that I miss.

iPhone in Pocket

Rode with the iPhone in my jersey pocket yesterday. It fit well in my old Timbuk2 strap pouch that I carry in my jersey. Also fits their large cellphone holder for shoulder straps.

As other reviewers have found, the iPhone is a breakthrough device that does all that you’ve read or heard about. I’m struggling with the touchpad now and I’m not going to try and ride and talk with it for a while (not that you should do that anyway).

Check our Photostream for a set of photos taken with our iPhone.
