Wilkes 100k. Loads of fun. You missed it? Wanna get your share of the bermy berm berm berms? Registration for the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek opens tomorrow at 9:00AM EST. It will sell out stupid fast. They don't even have to toss waffles at participants to bring up the fun factor. It has everything you need (minus flying breakfast).

He was the guest of honor a couple weekends ago at the Humane Society of Charlotte's Ties and Tails Gala... a function so nice that I have no place being there.
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday is the ginormous bike swap meet in Charlotte, The Big Stampede.
North Carolina's biggest tourist attraction. Yes, the same state with the Pisgah National Forest, Mount Mitchell (the highest point east of the Mississippi), the Atlantic Ocean, the Biltmore Mansion, historic lighthouses, wild horses that frolic on the Outer Banks, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
A mall. 'Merica.
Oh yeah, the swap meet. I don't have a list of "needs" per se. Just browsing. Always looking for that cheap mountain tandem, used chamois, a custom ti frame made to my exact specs, or a new ugly skinsuit.

Sunday afternoon, I'm gonna do my best to make it to the Annual Tarheel Trailblazer Year End Party. Our local trail building/advocacy club that I've been a member of (usually a paying member) for quite some time now. Never been to the party on an official basis (I made a transaction in the parking lot once), but now that Drunk Cyclist Mudman has taken a huge role in the planning, I have a feeling it will be a party to not miss. I mean, he's got the band that opened for George Thorogood at Interbike.
I just gotta figure out how I'm gonna get all the way out to Rock Hill, SC and more importantly... back home. After a party. One of the most unsafe after dark and a few beer rides I've ever done.
And one last thing.
Today, and today only, coach extraordinaire Lynda Wallenfels will be taking your questions on Facebook.... for free.
her page on FaceBook, but then you can fire away. None of my questions are very relevant (Who does your hair? Why does Dave always wear a baseball hat under his helmet?), so please come up with some good ones.
It's always okay.
