Impromptu Ridge Runner Ride

Jonny and I rode the Ridge Runner 52 mile route. The marks are still down. It is amazing how keeping the group small makes the ride go faster. Last year on many rides we stopped a lot and the stops were long. This year we have been riding faster and getting rides done more quickly. We did 66 miles and ended with 16mph average. Weather was beautiful. The mayor of Freedonia was out and he was vocal. As soon as we rounded the corner he came out of his house and started to utter. Granville was holding their Gran Prix races, but we were way too early. Good ride. I did break my seat a few miles from the house as we were heading down Kitzmiller.

And it is broken.... Selle SMP Evolution broken seat rail

Ahearne Cycles Racks

Flask and Flask Holder from Ahearne Cycles

Spaceman Flask Holster "It really says something about the bike industry when someone can leave his or her mark in this business by making a flask holder. Yes, a flask holder. As in, something that carries your private reserve liquor. Surly has made a flask for several years, and one night, Ahearne and his friend Billy Spaceman were trading pints at a local dive bar when they had that "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if..." moment. They decided to design a flask holster for the popular Surley flask, to be named the Spaceman Flask Holster. Little did they know that this seemingly novel little product would help Ahearne break into the bicycle business." – Dirt Rag Purchase one here....

Columbus Underground Meet up June 24th

I want to ride over to this event. I am thinking about riding on the cruiser bike so it would be a leisurely ride. From Tao Trucks Columbus In the course of our taco trucking we have found some amazing food, met some great people and spotted a few other bizarre things too. We thought Los Guachos would be a great venue for a CU meet (meat?) up and we know that the people who have already tried it will agree. We heard nothing but resounding praise for this truck. Los Guachos is the only truck in Columbus to serve al pastor (marinated pork) right off the spit. It is really, really good and their tacos and gringas (al pastor served with caramelized cheese) are crave worthy. Meet up will go ahead rain or shine. Bring cash as the trucks don’t take anything else. The food is very reasonable and there are soft drinks available. Commerce Square is just off Sullivant ( map here) and there are lots of other taco trucks nearby if you want to try some others.
