Another reason to love PBV (I thought this is what this thread was going to be at first)

We continue to be AMAZED by the community’s support for our healthcare staff. Today, Pete and team with Pork Belly Ventures LLC delivered and set-up two of their PHAT trailers on the Immanuel hospital…[Read more]
All I wanted for Christmas was a shiny red bicycle. 5 o’clock Christmas morning, I run downstairs and look under the tree and what do I find? Uncle Alfresco, dead on the floor, shot through the back of the head. Plus no bicycle. It was a disappointing Christmas on many levels. Vinnie Antonelli in My Blue Heaven. An awesome Steve Martin movie if…[Read more]
There was a young fellow who was quite inventive and was always trying out new things. One day he thought he’d see just how fast a bicycle could go before it became uncontrollable. He asked his friend, who owned an old Mustang, if he could tie his bike to the bumper of his car to test his theory. His friend said, “Sure.”
I was supposed to have landed in Paris this morning and would have been at the finish of Paris-Roubaix next week. I was able to push that trip back to the fall. If Ragbrai gets cancelled, I’ll have two weeks of riding around the house (or somewhere else) since that vacation is locked in. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail because we should be…[Read more]
We lived in a really nice area in PA. Riding in a group on a charity ride, a car came flying by us on the center line. I held my ground as the car went flying by. When asked why I didn’t get over like everyone else, I said “If I’m going to get hit by a car, I’m OK with getting hit by a Bentley”.
You can ride Ragbrai out of shape, but why would you want too? My theory is that the bike riding should be secondary to all the other stuff going on. Being in shape gives you more energy to do other things.
The weather has been terrible so far. It’s 60 and raining or 40 and clear. I got in 25 miles today with gail force winds. Tomorrow will…[Read more]
Make sure to refill the pitcher since you drank all the koolaid. The CDC has been on top of this since before the Democrats started calling President Trump a racist for banning flights from China. Hopefully it will be blown over by the end of July. I have serious riding plans for this year.
Enjoy your time until the Cubs are statistically eliminated.
The simple answer is rhubarb. The best piece of pie I ever had on Ragbrai was blueberry. I came up to a stand on a lovely 100 degree day and they had just pulled out some pies that were completely frozen. I ate it like a popcicle. The best ever.
Trucks seem to be plentiful and no worry about running out of hot water. I prefer them over the locals because you never know what you will get in a building. Most schools are not set up to handle that man showers.
I’m glad I did the 5 boro once (they took an awesome picture of me in front of Radio City). Riding across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge was incredible. Riding wise it was a nightmare. 40k people zig zagging across 6 lanes. Then they had a wreck and shut down the route for over an hour. I also loved having to go there to pick up your packet the…[Read more]
