Any pics of me actually riding have been taken by Beanz, and you'll find them in the SoCal Forum in his SART thread.

Hey Beanz!
I have a mountain bike too! cept it has an engine... ha ha ha


Me racing in Colorado.


Racing across Kansas. I love this pic. A sheriff stopped us shortly after this to tell us a tornado was on the ground ten miles from us. We were on our own if we continued to ride...

Hey Flip, the tandem is awesome! It's 27lbs, fast, stiff where it needs to be and an incredible ride. Calfee really knows how to build a bike. I could ride that thing all the way across the country...oh wait...I already did! The plan is to do it again this June.

Congrats on the ride. How was the RAAM ride for you and the team? I wondered how it went, but didn't see you on friedquads and I just noticed your name on this forum and thought I should ask. GREAT JOB!!!


Did you do a ride report on here somewhere? I hate hi-jacking a thread.

My...what an encouraging comment.


Here's an earlier photo of me scaring the hell out of the 400lb mark (and consequently the other riders) at my first ever organized ride.


I'd say I'd come a long way in the months between the two pics. (and learned to wear darker less form fitting clothes)

That guy in the background was with us, MTBLurker from the SoCal forum. This was the finishing sprint to the end of our ride. Condorita had just outsprinted the guy for the win, zipped up her jersey and was just about to throw her hands up in the air. (that's why her hands weren't on the bars).


Condorita outsprinting MTBLurker to the line. Although it looks scary, the only thing hurt was his pride!

I haven't done a write up about it. I've been meaning to but life has been getting in the way and now it's almost November already!
