Red E

The Red E is now the best coffee shop in Portland to meet for group rides. And by “best” I mean “closest to my house”. It’s full of PCC students pretending to work on stuff but actually just checking their Facebook status. It’s also full of “creatives” meeting about things on...

Ninkrossi CX: Octobe...

The rumor surrounding the new Ninkrossi CX course was that it was going to be flat and smooth. Which is apparently secret code for “not flat” and “not smooth”, a code I assume was developed on the OBRA forums to coax unhappy Sherwood fence sitters into going to Washugal instead. Well played, Washugal. On...

Photos from the Ninkrossi CX race in Washugal. Photos are primarily from the 2:05 and 3:00 races, with some from the 11:40 and 1:00.

Sodastream

I just bought a carbonated water machine. I bought it because I like carbonated water more than flat water. And because Mark has one, and I want to be more like Mark. I showed it to C, and her first question was “Can you carbonate urine?” but I explained that the instructions recommend that you only carbonate water....

Mt. Tabor Series – 2010

I really want to talk about the Mt. Tabor series, but all I can really discuss these days is my new slow motion camera. It’s just like a regular shitty old digital camera… IF A REGULAR SHITTY OLD DIGITAL CAMERA TOOK AMAZING SLOW MOTION VIDEOS! The uses are limitless. Unless you’re like me, in which case the uses are limited to funny faces and flying kittens. So let’s just set aside the details of the tabor races for a second, and instead feast our eyes on this… Yea. It’s a race video. In slow motion. With a crazy kid spinning around like Stevie Nicks in the foreground. The Mt. Tabor Race Series is exactly the same as it was last year. And the year before that. In fact, I think they just change the dates...

Now with more cats.

So the website is back. It was here. Then it was stalled. Then it was totally gone. And now it’s totally back. One hundred percent. Some people will say that the Vitamin D is what got us motivated. Others will say that it’s Editor’s fancy new smartphone that allows him to send and receive funny messages. And...

Mississippi Crit – June 12, 2010

I have to say that this has been one super fun week of cycling. It’s been so fun that it almost makes me want to start talking about cycling again. So consider this my triumphant return to the world of competitive talking about somewhat competitive cycling. I welcomed myself back by going for a truly stellar bike ride before attending a BBQ on the route of the Mississippi Crit. I’ve been listening to people recount the amazing end of this race for 24 hours. Even my coworkers are talking about it. It’s practically an internet meme these days, like the sneezing panda or Star Wars kid. Though he swears “this has never happened to him before”, the tiniest sprinter is a premature celebrator. And he prematurely...

I realize that my job is starting to get to me, because every time I sit down to try and write something it comes out sounding angry. I’ve been in front of the computer so long, I’m starting to refer to the recovery period during races as “buffering” and then getting frustrated when it doesn’t...

Canby Ferry – ...

Every time I attempt to write about the Canby Ferry ride, my fingers go all autopilot on me and I type “Candy Fairy.” Which is certainly creepy, and obviously points to some deep seeded childhood issues related to my love of “tasting the rainbow.” Which is drug talk. asics soldes If your drug is...

Heiser Farm CX: Octo...

Ah, autumn. nike air presto The mornings are crisp and foggy, and people have again begun tweeting preventative excuses for their poor race performances (“I’m so sick” or “I’m working so hard” or “I haven’t been on the bike in X weeks”.) So much has changed since I wrote...

2010 Portland USGP

Forties and fifties of people came out on Saturday to watch the celebrities of a small subgroup (cyclocross) of a much larger not-so-popular sport (cycling) that doesn’t get a fraction of the media attention of Juniors Figure Skating duke it out for overall supremacy at PIR. Maybe it’s because cyclists never have...
