Happy indeed! Stinky Spoke was so ridiculously fun.
Here is a short photo essay a local blogger wrote about it.
(I linked the photo above from the essay)

http://woodinville.patch.com/article...#photo-8906513

This year the ride ended with a few friends in a fast paceline riding into a steadily increasing headwind and hailstorm. I was shielding my face with one hand to avoid the painful ice pellets whooping and hollering till we reached the beer tent at the end of the ride.

My wife's Traverse would barely make it up that hill at the end.

Congrats, looks like you earned every bit of that medal!

Slightly grainy scanned shot of me from the cover of my buddy's photography project.
None of my friends ride, so I'm always out alone. No good riding shots.

So this is a "joke" video I did 2 weeks ago for a friend. This is me, one of my bikes and a trainer.

Let me know if you need translation...

BTW, I'm not 202 pounds!!! ;-)

Always wear a helmet? Even on the trainer?

Good resolution, but seems a little much inside!

Me, I should probably wear body armor when i work on my bike. I don't have a stand, and it always seems to fall on me.

My resolution is "to always wear a helmet while on my bike". This was for a friend who recently had a big face to face with a car while riding here bike. So I'm supposed to wear a helmet more often, especially in winter time since the roads are a bit icy here in Montreal...

This photo was taken on the Century Ride of the Centuries (CROC) on memorial day weekend last year.
If you're looking for something new to do this year - this is a great set of rides based out of Pendelton Oregon.
3 different loops in 3 days. Check em out

Taken on my Birthday ride yesterday. Rode my 94 Schwinn Crosscut. A quick rest stop next to a water sculpture on the Western Canal Trail, at Gilbert, AZ.

Great pics, everyone! And thanks, NB, for the birthday wish
