Weekly Roundup April 9

It is that time of year again! Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner. Well, around the corner, down a mile, hang one more left and the third door on the right, ish. My tribute to spring? A quick jaunt through a few of my favorite blogs in the past week, and many with a spring flavor! With that friends; The Weekly Roundup!

Travels With A Tin Donkey: I can’t think of a more appropriate way to start a spring themed roundup. 2008 Season Really begins: Out On The Open Road At Last!, and truer words were never spoke. It’s so good to get out into the fresh air once again. Sprocketboy polished the Bianchi and got out for his first ride of the year, and what a ride it was.

Harp Rider: Harp puts you on the edge of your seat with what we should all take as a reminder. Stayin Alive On The Road is a reminder that when we get back out onto the road we must remain vigilant and aware of our surroundings. It’s a vitally important reminder that you have to be alert to cars and assume that they don’t see you. I’m a pretty strong believer that certain close calls are a given, but that we can minimize the fatal outcomes by paying attention where others might not. Glad to hear it turned out OK for you Harp!

Cozy Beehive: What better way to spend a pleasant spring or summer afternoon then with your special someone, or the kids, cruising around on a tandem. Now, you could do it with a greater deal of comfort too. Ray shows off and gives a crash coarse in the DaVinci Independent Drive System For Tandems, which allows for independent coasting. A true breakthrough in tandems.

50K Loop NS: Bluenoser shares with us the story of The Weekend ride with the now infamous Al. It was quite a journey, and turned into a hilarious bit, with quite a few friendly jabs, regarding the ride.

Fat Cyclist: Finally this week, Fatty takes a sad, sad (Sarcasm) moment and finds it in his heart to lend a hand in a time of loss. He took it upon himself to help Aqu, Inc. by reworking their press release of the unfortunate (cough) postponing of the Tour Of America. It’s not that we couldn’t see it coming, but this is the funniest thing I think I’ve read all week, and I read it, like, eight times. Edited Press Release: Tour Of America Reschedules For 2009 is a comedy work of art Fatty, Bravo! (You say that to award winning blogs, you know! Congrats, again, on the Bloggie)

Well, that’s all she wrote for now. Enjoy the breaks in the weather. As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.
