Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Today I went on a subtle couple-hour city loop ride with my friend. I snapped a tourist-esque pic when we stopped by the bridge

The fairytale is ending tomorrow night. You're sending all your snow-dumping storms south to us, where we will get two weeks of straight rain. Thanks. Jerk.

On the plus side a) you're a badass for riding that thing in the snow and b) Tahoe will finally get snow that isn't man-made. WOOOO BOARDING!

p.s. staying on topic:

During my first century. You can't tell but this is a section of "Marshal Wall" that is ~13% grade. Notice the suffer face.

It was a pretty fantastic ride all around. Headlands scenery can't be beat, IMO. Another of my favorites from that ride:

This was the Rapha Festive 500 Century the day after Xmas. The last shot was on the top of Ridgecrest Blvd, also known as "The Seven Sisters".

Dish out the hurt, Jandro. By the way, I think twitter suggested I should follow you. I thought I didn't know who it was so I put it off. Then I couldn't find you again.

Had a very pleasant 18 mile ride last night. Mid-40s, light winds, very comfy in sweater & unlined windbreaker.

Graffiti equals street cred, right?




A "one & done" at a local bar


Mid-20th century middle school. For some reason, I like this architectural style for schools (maybe cuz it's the era when I grew up)

Thanks.

It took 3 or 4 attempts to get that. I started out too close, then went across the street, then used telephoto. I always feel that anyone watching me would think I'm bat schit insane being so meticulous about taking a pic of a bike in front of a school (or many of the other pictures I take). But it's my hobby, so there ya go.
