It seems to work fine for me. I poked around on there for quite a while yesterday and it loads again today. Is there something specific that doesn't work for you?

You may be banned. Have you been riding your bike with cycling shoes instead of Huaraches or Crocs? Lycra instead of yak wool jodphurs?

That's what you get for drinking Coke instead of Free Range Fair Trade Anti-G8 green tea.

I think you have to wear tweed these days.

And click your cleats together three times.

I suppose. I went home for a cup of Folgers freeze-dried.

So the moral of the story is that this girl has good taste?

Rivendell's site seems to get a little funky sometimes. Sometimes I click on menu options and they won't open. That can go on for several days. I always assumed it was a problem with the site, maybe it's my machine, but I don't have the problem anywhere else.

Rivendell might pre-screen for retrogrouchiness and affinity for seersucker and tweed riding clothing.

If you've been surfing performance cycle or ogling the latest crabon fibre goodies at weightweenies.com, your may be thwarted when trying to dwelve into rivendell.

I like the way Robbie thinks..... and everyone knows that anything that happens at night when no one is looking, doesn't really count. We all learned that as kids.
