Gone Fishin'


I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

Make list for commuter bike upgrades for winter
Started going through that. A co-worker at REI wanted to know why I just didn’t order in the bike I really wanted before dumping money into the old gray mare. I don’t know why either, but upgrading the trek is a way to keep a great bike relevant, I guess.
