What remains to be said about Holeshot? You can see some great pictures from Jose Sandoval here. There is a great video that Erik put together on Vimeo here. It was a blast, best bike event I've been a part of to date. It will be tough to top.

Remains Of The Day

3 am Sunday morning...empty kegs on the track, just me and a big empty space where lots of people had lots of fun.

It always amazes me what we can do with our hands and some good old fashioned gumption...Holeshot today. It's been a long last few days. I'm beat, full report soon.

Shelter Research

I just spent $12 on these books at Powells Books. Man I love Powells books.

Nice Shot!

Brenton Salo captured this great pic of Jen and the Cycle Truck a couple of weeks ago. Pretty nice shot, eh?

One For The Weekend

We're off to camp and ride at McKenzie River Trail!

Using the Cycle Truck to pick up a new car battery, and drop off and old one. There is some pretty sweet irony there. As I was riding to the battery store, I recalled this isn't the first time I've fetched a car battery by bike. Last time was for my 1979 Chevy Nova, Green Tony. It was probably 2000, summer time in Marquette. Put the battery in the basket of a bike named "Pedro". Pedro was a great bike, until it tried to kill my friend Pipp....

CT Pictures

Boom. Check this monster out! I'm pretty stoked with the build so far. It'll have full fenders, and there will be a sign on the frame, and a deck on the rack. Otherwise, pretty much set. The fit is getting close, trying to stretch out on it as it is probably going to become my daily rider when our office moves to NE Portland and I've got to commute about 5 miles each way, instead of the 1 mile commute I have now.
I sold three bikes and a variety of other stuff to finance this sucker. And it was worth it!

Ahearne Cycle Truck

I've got the CT pretty much built up. Doing some fit dialing. Pictures later today for serious.

The Bear

JB shot this picture of Elsa Bear at the Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend last weekend. I'm a fan. Beautiful shot.

The Powell Farm

We don't claim to know too much about gardening, but we've done some stuff right this year. We picked lots of berries, and made some tasty treats with them. The lettuce did well, but it was a bit bitter for my liking. We just had some pesto pizza, so we know the basil did well. Above you can see how our tomato plants are doing. The top picture was taken last night, and the one below less than two months ago. Last night, Jenny had to lash one of the plants upright as it is getting so heavy it is threatening to take over the whole planter. On the four plants, she stopped counting at about 60 tomatoes! Incredible!

Sandy Ridge

Rode some sweet trails. Shot a bb-gun. Drank some tall boys. Ate a steak.
Pretty solid summer Sunday.
