Weekly Roundup September 24, 2008

It’s been a progressively better week this week. Things have been markedly better at work. My life took a bit of an upswing in general, actually. I think I’m going to pull the trigger and say that I owe it to riding into work on Friday! So now I want to try and get a ride into work in more often. Not to mention it gives me an excuse to start thinking about a dedicated commuter bike to add to the quiver. Then again, that might result in divorce if I’m not careful. OH! As an aside, I think I’m still interested in the half-cocked idea of a cycling trip to Nova Scotia next year. Anyone in? Anyway, without further adieu, I give you the Weekly Roundup!

50K Loop NS: Bluenoser had, what sounds to be, an amazing ride over the weekend. On 21.09.08 he posted a great follow up on it. Apparently I also missed the memo on “Beat The Hell Out Of Lance Armstrong Week”. Why do I say that? Bluenoser took a shot, albeit a funny one, at Lance. Not only did Bluenoser, but also…

Cozy Beehive: Ron took a shot at Lance this week too. This shot had me thinking though, and admittedly I need to spend more time looking into this, but Ron posted his quick view of the Financial Health Of The LiveStrong Foundation. Again, I really need to look into it further, but it seems two things really stand out here. One, the $5,391,455 more than they took in. Two, the CEO Mitchell Stoller took a whopping $311,423 paycheck. A better than DOUBLE the average salary of the top 5000 CEO’s of NON-PROFIT organizations. Say it ain’t so?! I need to look into this.

Highway Munky: Highway Munky had what looks to be a really sweet Early Morning Epic. You could check out a quick story and Great pictures on that post.
Also, he had a great review of some equipment, including some sweet Flats I may have to look into for the MTB.

Fat Cyclist: Finally this week Fatty makes me jealous. Fatty will be spending the week at the infamous Interbike in Nevada. You can follow his journeys on his website, Fat Cyclist – http://fatcyclist.com. The first two of his week long journey are up now.

Don’t forget about the ride this Sunday, September 28th at 10:00am. The ride will leave from the Ohio Erie Canal, Independence, Ohio (just outside of Cleveland proper). Check out more info at This Post. As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.

I promise to lay off the big guy from here on in phun. And anyways the real Cycling God is Eddy.

Come up to NS for a ride anytime. I'm sure I have an extra box of Kraft Dinner or two I could feed you.

i am going to vicariously live cycling adventures through you over the next two months. i am thinking about getting a trainer just to peddle since this arm cast is prohibiting me from hopping on the saddle. make sure you get a few good rides in before snowfall for me.

Good luck with the commuting to work more often. Are you going to see this through all the way to spring?
