Tour de Fat

Brent, Chili-Dog, and I attended the Tour de Fat again this year on July 29th in Truckee, Ca. We actually made the bike parade this time and it was awesome. A huge number of bikers in costumes overtook the quaint town of Truckee, Ca. We even congested the town's roud-a-bout which the motorized vehicles were pretty good sports a-bout.

The event is "green" with solar powered stages, cups from recycled plastic, compost collection bins, etc. The proceeds from the event were donated to the Truckee-Tahoe Trails Foundation to support trail work in the area.

I snapped this photo which pretty much sums up the day...beer rocks!

Find out more... Tour de Fat and support a green company by drinking plenty of New Belgium beer.

Snakebite's Fall Bicycle Poker Run

The Slow Rollers Poker Run has influenced our Mid-West brethren; however, Snakebite's Fall Bicycle Poker Run will step it up a level and visit five bars! No sissy coffee shops or sporting goods stores will be patronized. Not a ride to start with an empty stomach!

Unfortunately, Sioux Falls in 1,673 miles from Gardnerville. Assuming I can average 8-10 miles an hour on my chopper, I'm not sure I'd get there in time for the September 16th date. Oh well...

I wish Snakebite the best of luck with his event!

Mooneyes Gets G Whites

As we were out for a ride in G-ville, Jeff and I rounded a corner to the sound of what seemed like running over bubble wrap. Unfortunately, we were not so lucky! Hundreds upon hundreds of freakin GOATHEADS! We made it back to the G-ville fort before going flat, but woke up the next day to that sad site of deflated rubber. On Thanksgiving day I robbed one of the bikes I'm building up (the soon to be La Ratta Rey) of this set of white walls as I did not have the chance to tweeze the tires and get rid of the thorns before our infamous Freeway Cruise. They look so good they are going to stay put. Also got some sweet iron cross pedals from J & K for my birthday!
