Ride on over to my meat house.

It's been a while since this thing's been updated, but the spring is hovering just out of reach so I'm hoping you all have singletrack on your mind..... For the sake of an update,........ I took advantage of the nice temps and found a new gravel loop up north of town. It was a great ride, but it reminded me that I'm not in shape. Playing basketball with co-workers once a week and riding the trainer every now and then just doesn't cut it. Now that high school basketball season is wrapping up, hopefully I can start bike commuting to work a few days a week. Nothing gets me in shape faster than that.

After my ride I went home and made a meat house for dinner.

No, actually that's a lie. I just cooked up a couple steaks on the grill. But if you'd like to make a meat house, go here to find out how. I plan on making my own very soon. Could there be anything better?

Goats on Ice

"What're you looking at?"

Although conditions weren't perfect (lots of ice!), three amigos made it out to Manawa on Saturday. We tested our balance, technical bike handling skills, and general manliness. I was the first one to cry, but I definitely wasn't the last.

Folding wheel

Very interesting. I can just imagine myself jumping a pothole and landing on a folded wheel.

Hey, I invented one of these this summer, it just didn't unfold.
