Weekly Roundup April 30

This week has no real rhyme or reason to it. Its just going to be a fun journey around the blogs that have been keeping me from getting my work done as I should. Its great to see the changes I talked about last week, remember? Once spring hits and everyone is getting out for more regular rides, the blogs start to get all fired up. With that friends; The Weekly Roundup!

Bike Munkey: This couldn’t be more appropriate. You may remember that I posted another “Freakin’ Cars” post on my weekend riding and idiots who drive poorly around cyclists. Apparently I wasn’t the only one, Left Hook is Bike Munky’s story of a bugger of a ride.

Harp Rider: While Bike Munky was out dodging cars, Harp was stuck inside due to inclement weather. Luckily for Harp he had, and shares, the answer to having to pound a ride out on the trainer. His recommendation? It comes in Feeling Good and it’s the movie Off Road To Athens.

Cozy Beehive: Ron shares a problem that arose in a race this weekend, and it’s a problem we could all learn from. Nokon Brake Cable Failure shows off the issue that Ron had with his front cable snapping, why it happened, and how to prevent it from happening to you. A must read before you go out for a quick hilly spin.

Fat Cyclist: Fatty spent the weekend with his crew doing the annual RAWROD (Ride Around White Rim in One Day). 2008 RAWROD: Take It Easy is the journey from start to finish of the guys riding White Rim this weekend. Fatty took it easy and has a whole new perspective, rave reviews, and crazy beautiful pictures from the journey to show off. Glad to hear you guys enjoyed it, next time would you please send a beer brat?

Bike Snob NYC: This week I’ll leave off with some humor from Bike Snob. Mused And Confused: Pondering The Nature Of Cycling is a great look at what cycling truly is, what makes a cyclist a cyclist, and (of course) it’s entwined in the humor of the Bike Snob. Apparently my boy Wah also was on top of his latest cycling mustache coolness factor as well with 2008 Cross Season, beating BSNYC to the punch a bit on the now infamous Dave Zabriskie moustache.

Well, that’s all she wrote for now. Enjoy the beautiful spring weather, get out there an ride already! And, as usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.
