Ok, so this blog has been pretty quiet for a while. It's because I've been adhering two my own two "rules of blogging" -- 1, Don't blog when you have nothing to say and 2, Don't blog when you don't have time to do a decent job.
So I haven't finished a race in 7 seven weeks (see rule #1) and I spent this past weekend moving into a new apartment (#2). So I've had more pressing concerns, like getting some freakin blinds up in my room since you can see straight into it from the street.
Anyway, I also attended Justin's wedding last Saturday. Ordinarily going to a wedding is not a bike-blog-worthy event, but in this case Justin is a big biker (well as much as singlespeeders can be called bikers...) and the event featured a "bike procession" (precession?) after the ceremony, where probably 40 people rode mostly beater bikes 3 miles from the church to the reception. Highlights included...
A bike with 36 inch wheels....
and of course, bride and groom on a tandem!
And check out the crazy double-cassette action on the recumbent:
Recently I hooked up Google Analytics on this blog because I have a thing for numbers. The results were surprising to say the least. Here's the map for visitors in the last ten days:
Would you believe that the second most common visitor location is Syracuse? And freakin' Anchorage cracked the top ten? I guess I have Jess and Laura to thank for that, and I guess that means I might actually have some nordic readers.
Blogging about your own blog might be the lamest thing in the world so I'll quit now.
In other, less visual, news, since I now live just 1 mile away from the Fells in Teele Square I decided that instead of doing boring old road intervals I would go do some MTB intervals at the Fells tonight. I learned a few things --
1) There are too many people in the Fells to hammer for 3 minutes on a mountain bike. Next time I need a quality workout, I guess I have to go back to Eastern Ave.
2) It might seem pretty light out, but you're always just a broken chain and some clumsy attempts at fixing it away from riding in the dark.
4) I need a new chain.
