I mapped out a route using Topofusion around Pakoon Basin in Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument a while back.. It has crazy features on the map like Negro Head I had to see with my own eyes. Here is what a Negro Head looks like in the middle of the desert. Roads go forever and […]

One of the most challenging aspects of staying on top of my game is understanding how to manage change.  You'd think that if it worked once it would work again, right?  Nope.  It is never that simple.  The reality is things are always in flux.  Understanding the ebb and flow of this (un)raveling ball of […]

Oct 1 I ordered the ANT+ updater for my PowerTap MTB hub.  This gizmo upgrades the firmware in the hub such that it transmits on 2 channels:  1 to the power tap computer head, the other channel on ANT+ sport.  The ANT+ channel is a semi-open protocol and several devices speak the language.  Among them […]

...is the next destination. September 20-21. I talked with an official at USA Cycling who confirmed this is going to be the venue for the 2009 and 2010 NORBA National 24 hour Mountain Bike Championships. Well I haven't done a 24 hour solo since Worlds last year and am in just the right mood for […]

I love my Siren SS.  The bike feels as good and natural as anything I've ever ridden.  Bike and rider blur on this steed.  Yet, racing it in a geared class is a losing proposition.  If there's one thing I learned racing TransRockies on a SS, it's that going with one gear is a major […]

That fancy new PT Disc wheel is still not on a bike...I tried yesterday but the rear triangle on the bike it was to go on doesn't have disc mounts!  Geez.  It was a bummer at first...big ride day on the plan.  What to do?  Take the SS of course ;)  32.17 has been the […]

It's been a tough week.  Change and uncertainty are running free reign right now - and that can be tough on my ocean liner sensibilities.  On the flip side, change presents opportunities.  In this case, I have the time to focus on what I really enjoy. Take this guy for instance.  With a strong history […]
