Carey Lowery and other stuff

Check out Carey Lowery's blog.  She is racing at Burn 24 this weekend and is doing a really cool fundraiser:
                                                              Off The Beaten Path

 My road wheels are being rebuilt by a friend.  My 5 yr old rims were pretty dished out and I was concerned about rim failure leading to a face to pavement at 35 mph incident.  That would not be fun.  I was pricing wheelsets, and when my friend, who loves to build wheels, offered to take care of the build,  I jumped at the opp!!!  

So, I'm riding the Siren to work.  It is just as comfortable on the road as it is on the dirt.  Mtn bikes I have had in the past, tended to get uncomfortable when I road them on pavement, in the same position for extended periods.   Not this one.

It's always exciting to get unexpected items in the mail.  Even more so when the item is white and it matches my bike!!!  Check out Kinetic Koffee.  I'm drinking some limited edition Guatemala Santa Isabel right now.  Kinetic is some of the best coffee I have ever tasted.  Well balance roast,  no ashy aftertaste.  Mark loves what he does and it shows in the coffee.  And he donates a portion of proceeds.

Well, I signed up for a race.  I was feeling a little off kilter, not having any races going on.  So, it worked out for me to sign up for this one.  It's gonna be a blast!!

Hey Stephen -- I keep forgetting to tell you ... Mark's wife has started to bake energy bars -- I didn't get to sample (not gluten free yet), but he SOLD OUT at Sea Otter -- you should check 'em out!

My name is Stephen said...

yes, I knew he was doing that, they look and sound delicious. I'm going to have to sample some soon.
