Sue and Dorothy at ride start

Susie is riding again
Yesterday afternoon we went on a bike ride with our friends Dave and Dorothy. It was a 14 mile ride, but it was significant in that Sue rode for the first time in about a year. She did really well and said she felt very good. After the ride we went over to their house where we had a great barbecue. It was a lot of fun.

Lupine Loop Movie

Lupine Loop Trailer
This short video is a trailer for the movie I shot last weekend at the Lupine Loop Ride. It is a totally tongue in cheek short. I plan to burn DVD’s from the movie for friends.

On the passing of George Slough Sr.
I hardly knew George Sr., but I have appreciated his craft. He built a lot of wheels that are on my bikes.

The wheels he built for me are the best wheels any wheel builder ever built for me. They have held their true better than anyone else’s and still hold the tension he put on them.

I used to see him at the shop occasionally and will think of him often, like when I am riding and look at and feel his wheels spinning under me. His touch on my wheels has made my rides better. Every time I am riding on the road on the wheels he built I will be feeling the road through spokes he patiently tightened with his own fingers. His wheels ride true.
