  1. @Puffy Excellent approach.  Worked for me.  My manager is a yoga teacher…apparently Zen costs nothing, or nothing is Zen. I will never fucking figure it out. »

A death is a painful thing to experience. Particularly, I imagine, for the one doing the dying. For those left behind, it takes time to mourn and come to grips with the change; it is an unpleasant process, but such is the way of things.The crack in the chainstay of my beloved Cervelo R3 had been weighing on my mind ever since I discovered its exist...

  1. Fuck. Me. Gently. That’s a lovely bike.  Sad about the Cervelo, but, as they say, “The King is dead.  Long live the King!” »

  1. @Steampunk I love it when rides are described as glorious.  Implies something so transcendent. »

  2. I did 105km on Saturday (1,000m vertical); this morning hit the bike at 5am to ride to yoga, attend said yoga class and ride home.  Nothing near as epic as many of you, but this is the first time I’ve woken at 4:30am to ride my bike. VLVV! »

  1. The fastest I’ve ever gone on a descent was 102kph, if I can (could) believe my long-deceased Avocet 30.  This was on the road stage of the Tour d’Olean, in New York state circa mid 90s. The thought of going that fast on my bike now scares the shit out o… »

  1. I’m not sure what ketamine based drugs Buck is stealing and abusing right now but he sure is excited about another Too Much on 100 Cogal. Everyone who wants to live the Rule #5 life, line up here. -gianni

    The 2013 200-on-100 Cogal, or for the crazy bastards repeating it from last year, The 400-on-100 Cogal (aka The Buck Rogers Knee Memorial ride, The Steampuck Gastro Memorial Ride, The What the Fuck Was I thinking Memorial Ride).

    On Thursday, June 21st starting at V after V (actual time of sunrise-How Velominati is that?!?) in North Troy, VT the second annual 200-on-100 Cogal will kick off for another crazy, painful, endorphin-induced-hallucinogenic filled, long ass day in the saddle. Last year was amazingly awesome. I will not wax all nostalgic about it. Watch the Ryan Kelly video, read the Cogal page from last year, check out the strava links: It speaks for itself.

    I will be driving support in my new-to-me 1984 12 passenger Land Rover Defender 110 with the big ass roof rack which is a right hand drive so I should be able to hand out bidons and drive all at the same time! It will also have plenty of room in case anyone gets injured and needs to bail. Rob has thrown his hat in for possibly driving a support wagon as well so support should be covered.

    Logistics will be ironed out as the time approaches and hopefully Roger, aka The 200-on-100 MAN, will help with the planning as he did last year but this time around he is NOT allowed to pay for anything!!!

    So be there and be pedaling square by day’s end or regret it for the next 12 months! It’s going to be Fooockin’ Awwwesome (insert Djibouti Dub Video here).”

    I still need to find the Djibouti Dub video but I attached the picture of my Velo Support Wagon, BABY!

    I think that this is the link for Djubouti but I cannot open it at work as it is banned! www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOmvdeNa67E

    If you do not know Djubouti Dubs, you missing out. Just google them, but not at work!

    Thanks!
