Chris King 2010 Pretty and Strong Calendar

Image
Pretty and Strong  enters its 7th year as a special edition and we are pleased to continue our strong relationship with the Oregon and SW Washington affiliate of Komen for the Cure. For 2010 we are excited to present a calendar benefiting Komen for the Cure in partnership with the talented photographers of PDXCross.com. Our shared effort with this calendar is more than an intimate look at the joy and tenacity of the women we see racing cyclocross each weekend during the fall. It's a call to awareness for early detection because breast cancer still doesn't care how fit or fast you are on a bike. Please make an appointment to see your doctor and circle the date on one of these great calendars. Our sincere thanks to PDXCross, The Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate of Komen for the Cure, and to all the women who race & ring cowbells with us each weekend. Price $15 order it here...

Exposure Lights has a model with 960 lumens

Image
MaXx-D The MaXx D packs the biggest punch for its size and weight available anywhere. No cables and connectors to come loose or get wet and all in a tiny package that weighs an incredible 320 grams with the mount included. The MaXx D is super bright with an even beam pattern to give you great peripheral vision and depth perception. If you need as much brightness as you can lay your hands on for technical offroading or just to make ensure motorists will always see you on your commute – this is your light. As used by Pro and Amateur racers across the Globe – used by the current Moab 24 hour champs. Compare the value of lumens to other products of lesser brightness and you will have change to spare – dare we suggest you compliment Maxx D with an accessory like the Joystick for a combined 1200 lumens at $550! Compare us against Lights and Motion Seca 900 $650, NiteRider Pro 1200 $650.00. These systems use external batteries and cables – need we say more! Specifications: Weigh

GOBA 22: It's not your grandmother's quilt trip!

Logan - McConnelsville - Marietta - Athens - McArthur - Logan GOBA 22: It's not your grandmother's quilt trip! Oh, it's so much more ... revel in the rolling scenery of our Appalachian countryside. Dance to the rhythms of fiddles, washboards, and dulcimers. Let your dreams flow like the mighty rivers paralleling our bike routes. And of course, come to appreciate the quilt pattern as tradition but with a twist: it's now an exalted art form as well as a rustic landscape backdrop. The good folks of southeastern Ohio are sewing up a patchwork of experiences for you on GOBA-22. Bring your tent, your family, and your bike and get ready for the trip! more...

Wend Magazine

wend   (wěnd) v.   wend·ed, wend·ing, wends v.tr.  To proceed on or along; go:  wend one's way home. v.intr.  To go one's way; proceed. [Middle English wenden, from Old English wendan.] Wend: Who we are. Wend is a forum for real people, writing real stories about real adventures and real environmental issues. As an independent media group, active in both environmental activism and the outdoors, we realize that part of going off the beaten path means making sure the path doesn’t get beaten. We are a magazine that understands that to advocate for the majesty of nature, we’d be hypocritical to print on paper that comes from destroying it, and thus, every issue of Wend is printed on locally sourced, FSC certified paper. Our mission is to educate and inspire, as we see travel and experience as revelation that enriches our lives, and makes us better world citizens. We travel not to escape but to challenge ourselves and discover the humanity that every culture, big or small, p

2009 Dirty Dozen Results, Article, & Stats/Matrices

http://www.dannychew.com/dd_09.html http://www.dannychew.com/dd.html 2009 DIRTY DOZEN RESULTS The 27th annual Dirty Dozen was held on Saturday, November 28th. Another (6th consecutive) good weather (sunny skies and a high temperature of 46 degrees F) DD allowed for a record turnout of 186 riders (as big as the Tour de France pack/field) including 98 (53%) rookies. There were a record 17 riders over 50 years old. 13 year old Andrew Reay became the youngest finisher. 10 women showed up for the 3 place, $300 prize list. For the first time, I offered a prize list (equal to the women) for the men. For the first time, I had riders sign release and liability waivers. 4 former winners rode: Defending champ Steve (Stevo) Cummings, 1991 winner Gunner Shogren, 1986 winner Bob Gottlieb, and myself. 29 year old Stevo won his 6th consecutive DD, but was challenged by youth - capable of ending his reign if they keep improving. 21 year old Bob Stumpf won the first hill. 19 year old Sam Morris

We were that fired up. There are few bikes more simple, obvious, practical and versatile than an urban/suburban/bourbon 3-speed with twist shifter. The frame and fork are based on the tough, oversize round and box section shapes of the Folsom, but with bosses for water bottles, r
