Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

For a little light humor I wanted to share what I found to be my Best, Worst, Biggest and Weirdest moments of 2014.   Best Bike I rode:  Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Discovery:  3M Scotch Brand Super 77.  We’ve all seen riders abandon the Tour.  When they do someone “Peels” their number off.  Note, they don’t unpin the number.  Have you […]

My bike got very stuck in some mud.  Can't believe I didn't go over the bars.

Bears, Singletrack, and Pavement

A while back I wrote this on Facebook, “Every year I say I’m going to ride less and do more hiking, fishing or trail running, anything but riding.” So can someone explain why two out of the last three weeks I have ridden over 200 miles, climbed 25,000+, and been in the saddle more than 20 hours? Maybe the shirt […]

Caged Tiger

Caged Tiger

Metaphorically speaking I’m a caged tiger… Of course my life is much better than that of any caged animal but similarities are there.  Last night I saw a video on Facebook about a woman who could supposedly communicate with animals.  She was conversing with a black panther who was very angry and growled at anyone who came near his enclosure.

The End of Riding Season

The End of Riding Season

It’s been a while since I last posted anything (Sept. Thomas Lakes).  It’s hard when you live in a place like this to want to spend any more time than I already do on a computer  at work, when I get home.  My life has been taken over by cyclocross season.  It ended on Thanksgiving for me but soon nordic […]

My Life by Pictures

As you can see my life is still filled with bikes at 40.  I look forward to more exploring on the bike as the summer progresses.  I learned yesterday that my new bike won’t be here until mid July now.  I’m bummed as that means less exploring the dirt roads of this great state.  I’m pretty sure I’ll be selling […]

Settled?

Settled?

Once again it’s been a while since I posted on here.  I have no good reason besides I haven’t been compelled to write anything.  Part of it was it was winter and motivation was low, while some of it had to do with my need for things to be just right.  Either way I just haven’t desired to sit down […]

The snow came soon after the racing stopped.

Dirt Bag Living IV

It’s been a long while since I posted anything.  Motivation has been hard to come by when it comes to posting so I apologize.  That’s not to say I haven’t been doing much.  On the contrary I have been doing a lot, except working.  I installed solar panel systems for the month of November but then because of red tape […]

Searching for WHAT? II

Searching for WHAT? II

For a long time now I have laughed, scratched my head, smiled, and at times been dumbfouned by some of the search terms people enter into my websites search feature. I decided to start documenting them. Some times I will make fun of them, other times I will offer help on the subject and some times I will ask “What […]

10 Reasons Why I Love Colorado

10 Reasons Why I Love Colorado

So I’ve been here in Colorado for over three months now.  During that time I have fell in love with the state.  I knew I would like it but my list before coming here was short and unproven.  I have put together a longer list of reason why I love Colorado.  I figured now was a good time as I’m […]
