Daddy?

Posted by:

StarkesThere are a few noteworthy aspects to the photo at the left.  First and foremost, Kevin Starkes is prominently displaying the City Coach logo, allowing his coach to take way too much credit for his accomplishments.  Second, he has his hand raised in victory because he is…(wait for it)…victorious.  As previously discussed, there’s no need to throw your hands ...

NSTB100 Report

Posted by:

Nstb
Because I know this can’t wait until the morning, and because I have to be to work in 4 hours, I figured I’d submit a report of the tonight’s 3rd Annual No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn Century.  We started with 15 riders, including a couple of unfamiliar but welcome faces, and unlike last year there was beautiful weather, no injuries, ...

Weather or Not

As we proved last year when we rode the 2nd Annual NSTB100 through heavy rain and lightning, we’re not wearing frilly pink panties under our cycling shorts.  Similarly, we are not made of sugar, not a baseball team, etc.  Here’s the potential problem.  We’re also not the Metropolitan Opera.  They are scheduled to play in our fair little ...

Lesser of Two Evils

Posted by:

If you haven’t been lured by the idea of riding five hours around Prospect Park for the 3rd Annual No Sleep ’til Brooklyn Century but you’d still love to be a team player and see the park late at night, and have an excuse to have dinner and drinks with the cool kids afterward, then I’ve got just the job for you.  Come on out and deliver supplies to the group around 10:30-11:00.  You’ll have the eternal gratitude of a ...

…is "old news."  After my bike commuter post yesterday, I mentioned to Johanna that I wanted to make stickers similar to the ones that the Department Of Sanitation slaps on the windows of cars that block street cleaning, and put them on cars that block bike lanes.  Of course, Mr. Day Late, Dollar Short should have know that this ...

Words of Wisdom x 2

Posted by:

Slowroadsign378pxThe first bit of wisdom that I’ll share with you is "don’t ever get out of shape".  How’s that for Coach’s words of wisdom?  It seems that after the Miles for Mom century, I ignored that tip and slacked off a bit.  Over the last four weekends, I’ve been up to New Paltz once and Harriman 4x in an effort ...

Is It Even Worth Pumping the Tires?

Posted by:

As we prepare for the 3rd Annual No Sleep ’til Brooklyn Century, it seems that we’re not the only game in town.  As chronicled at the Brooklynian message board, it looks like some of our neighbors had a midnight bike ride Friday.  Below is an excerpt from their posting.

Anyway, here are some impressive statistics for our ride (including the jaunt over to Franklin Park).

Distance: 4.6 miles

Average Speed: 10.3 mph

Top Speed: 22 mph

We Are The World, Japanese Style

Posted by:

Yesterday’s post about Killer singing during Mooseman has generated a lot of attention, and caused me to spend an even more inappropriate amount of time on YouTube than usual.  Check out this video of Japanese We Are the World impersonators.  It’s worth the price of admission just  for the Cindy Lauper impersonator.
