Rolling dirty

You saw the bat signal, and now the ride. Low 30's, rain, and hours on gravel equals ideal ride conditions. We talked, we rode, we stopped to pee a lot. I ended very wet and cold, the fat bike is dirty. Shout out to Kuske and J-No, Juicy Peach was a no show.

Bat Signal

The call is out. 7am, tomorrow, driveway of the "state penn". Be there or don't be extreme.

Ragnarok 105

T-minus 5 months until I try to defend my title. I really like this race and look forward to lining up and conquering the forces of crushed rock with a hundred of my friends once again.

Until then, I dream of winter, cold, and fat tire racing.

And we ride.

The XRC symbol flashed across the sky. All available members mounted their steeds. My fat bike with 29er wheels unleashed it's fury, and gravel the was tamed.

On a side note, my fat tired snow bike should be for sale soon enough. Details to come when available.

If you haven't read...

Bullcrap here.

Petition to right it here.

Sign the petition unless you believe there is an income threshold for having to pay for your actions.

It started.

XRC ride #1 in prep for the big winter carnival has been completed. Topics of discussion included the Slurpee Summit in hopes of peace in the midwest, Arrowhead and using downed bodies for warmth much like Luke Skywalker, drop bar poggies, our 29'er wheels rolling in the fatty frames, cold, heat, mancaves, and not riding by accident.

A pic from our future cold adventure. Last year we started at -22 degrees.

I want to play a game.

In a tradition that spans many years Becky and I met some friends in LaCrosse to watch the latest Saw movie. If you are not familiar, Saw prides itself on having the most gory and visually horrific scenes out there. The thing that stands out the most from the movie was not the movie itself. It is the 5 very large young women that thought it was appropriate to bring their 3 kids that looked about 2, 5, and 8 years old. According to the theatre, as long as the kids are accompanied by an adult there was nothing they could do. So there you go, the latest candidates for parents of the year.

Snow and slurpees.

When it comes to the land of snow biking, things are not always what they seem. I new development in Jo Mama's world has him giddy with excitement. Details to come when more is know.

Speaking of snow biking a Slurpee Summit is being arranged. This would consist of XRC, DBD, snow, and camping. With talks commencing and the peace pipe brought out. If all goes well we may see peace in the Midwest once again. If not expect to see attempts made on the DBD's well being.

And since everyone loves a picture...

Teaching'em young

She keeps wanting a Superfly 100 like her Daddy's.  I have been able to change the subject so far, but her desire for the bike only grows.  Remember parents, when you praise something greatly, your kids will want it as well.

Cabin Special?

It is a little cool, but looks to be nice and sunny at the cabin this weekend in Cable, WI; a great place to use a launching point for many great mountain bike rides. Running a special for this weekend if anyone wants it. $100 for Friday/Saturday night. The picture is from one of the nearby hikes past some waterfalls. I plan to be up there the following weekend rocking out on the trails as it is just so much fun and plentiful.

Round 1 goes to Charly

They came in droves in the red and white clothing, but no matter, I took care of them all. Next year, at this same, time they will strike again. My belly will be ready, and my teeth primed. You are no match little ones, so bring it on!
