Weekly Roundup May 14

True I’ve been putting out fires for a few days now, and I’ve been stressing pretty hard. The up side? I’ve been getting chances to ride. The weather looks like it’s going to get hellacious from now through Friday, but Friday afternoon will likely clear up in the afternoon and turn into a great day to, at minimum, ride after work. With that friends; The Weekly Roundup!

Let’s Rock…: A special shout to Yeahdog, who ran the Y-Me this weekend. Y-Me – The Thought Did Cross My Mind is the story of the seemingly pseudo-apocalyptic weather that they had to face. Also, if you didn’t donate yet there is a link that you can donate, she’s only $200 away from her goal of $1000 to go to Breast Cancer, I’m sure if we all pitch in she could get there in no time.

Fat Cyclist: I’m sure most of you reading this blog already know what’s going on with FC. In all of the sad posts and seriousness, Fatty shares the story of A Good Weekend. Check out his blog and if you’re able to, donate a few bucks to help Fatty get all the bills paid, get the needed items for Susan’s day to day care, help out people traveling in to help and such.

Cozy Beehive: Ron has a list of hilarious Tuesday Shorts but to me the most interesting might just be his follow up of the catastrophic failure of the Mavic-R-Sys failure. Also, there is a great bonus with the Marco Pantani video, nice touch Ron. Good luck on the move and in the new position with Dresser-Rand.

Bike Munkey: He’s back from holiday and apparently suffering the same issues I am state-side. The Amazing Incident Of The Exploding Tyre is a quick but funny post very similar to the issue I had last week.

Travels With A Tin Donkey: Sprocketboy takes the time to point out an awesome exhibit in the Portland Airport. Portland, Oregon Is Becoming To Bicycles What Cremona, Italy Is To Violins… is an exhibit dedicated to the renaissance of frame building going on right now in Portland. One of the key players in making this happen is one of my favorite frame builders for women, but I love what they do from an aesthetic standpoint, Sweetpea Bicycles.

Miles And Madness: Finally a quick Congratulations going out to Judi. In I Won she shares the story of how she won a sweet Fuji Cruiser! Congratulations Judi!

Also, just as an update for fans of 50K Loop NS, Bluenoser is on hiatus for the summer. Training and an exorbitant amount of work have prompted him to put the blog in a holding pattern. He does, however, assure me that he will be back in autumn, and says to say hello to all.
Well, that’s all she wrote for now. When you’re done reading this, get you butt out and ride, OK? As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.

Thanks for the shout - it made me get my act together to put some pics in the blog :)

It certainly is sad about Susan. I can't imagine what the family is going through right now. Unfortunately other families go through the same thing.

This coming Monday and Tuesday, May 19th and 20th, I'm going to be donating the earnings from my cycling and outdoor gear search to Susan's WIN fund. If you're looking for new gear, this is another way to help the family.

Thanks for the shout out. Hope you get in a commute tomorrow. The weather sucks ass BIG time here too.

Yeahdog: Awesome, Imma go checkum out now (heh heh... so AOL speak)
Ron: You're very welcome. I'd love to chat business with you sometime.
UltraRob: Hey! Thanks for the shout bro. I'm going to do something tonight for tomorrow regarding Fatty's Fund Raising and I'll throw that in it.
Judi: Hey there gal! Yeah... cold, rain, suck, suck, suck (heh heh... nine inch nails joke...) Did you notice, I heard from Bluenoser (50K Loop NS) and all is well, he'll be back in autumn when work and training slows again.
