Weekend Riding

Prepping for an upcoming adventure, on both Saturday and Sunday Kathy and I did 4+ hours of riding with our bikes loaded. Saturday's ride included the Centennial Trail between Seven Mile and TJ Meenach Bridge. There were a couple of shaded stretches that still had snow and ice. We're not as sore as we thought we'd be and we're stronger than we think we are.

Creative Ceramics And America's Game

Over the years, Stephanie and I have watched a couple of contestants fail on Wheel of Fortune. In one instance the puzzle showed "GO TO THx FROxT OF THx xxxE". Everyone but this unfortunate contestant knew the last word was "LINE".  She decided to solve and said, "GO TO THE FRONT OF THE CAVE". There was shocked surprise from everyone as you would expect.

In her ceramics class, Steph made me a very nice mug to commemorate the event.

Music Time

Here's a song I wrote called In The Morning. I really need to practice more. You wouldn't believe how many times it took to get a halfway decent video of this.
In The Morning.

This is something Stephanie and I did for fun. Stairway To Gilligan's Island complete with storm.

Lilac City Live

Lilac City Live is a lot of fun. It's exactly what you would expect of a talk show but on a smaller budget and with local talent. This is pretty cool, Spokane.

There Was A Bike Fight Tonight

Soulful Soups and Spirits hosted Bight Fights put on by The Bike Hub. It was fun but it was also hard work. Go as hard as you can for 60 seconds. The loser is eliminated and the winner moves on. I did a very respectable .55 mile but the animal I was up against did .66 miles. What a relief--for me.

Bike fights will be held the next two Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm at Soulful Soups. $10 gets you an entry and two beers--tall cans of PBR, Rainier, or Oly (I think. I stopped them at PBR.)

Because that's where the fun is.

It's Cyclocross Season Again

I raced in Moscow, ID yesterday. I wasn't prepared for racing but I raced nonetheless. Well, I wore a bib number and rode around the course until I had to stop. I'm about five pounds heavier and I haven't trained for 'cross at all so it was no mystery to me why I wasn't as fast as I've been in the past. I usually do more than one race because I really enjoy being on the course. Yesterday I did the single speed and Cat 4 back to back. Then I had a couple of hours rest before the men's masters 60+.

To top it off, since I hadn't even ridden my cross bikes before the race, the single speed race was my practice. While approaching the barriers shown in the picture it was like I forgot how to dismount and I wiped out. It was pretty funny. Fortunately, the worst of it was a small flesh wound.

Me in my Sunday best.
