Interbike and CrossVegas 2012

Interbike and CrossVegas bring the entire world of cycling to one place. Nowhere else will you see so many pro's other than at the Tour. I saw some amazing stuff this year, I don't just mean the 2,000 - 6,000 dollar category, I'm talking 10,000 to 20,000 dollar bikes and components! Carbon fiber bottle cages, sun glasses, number mounts. I thought Garneau had the best booth though, Chrissie Wellington and Louis Garneau were both there signing their books, awesome people and they were free to chat for a while too.

I had the opportunity to work the race registration and results again this year which is always fun. It gives me a prime spot to watch at the finish line and some swag and who doesn't like swag!?!

Recently after a long spell of posture deterioration I had the chance to visit a customer near exotic Tullahoma Tennessee. Never heard of it? Well it's about an hour south of Nashville. You might not expect much from such a small town but everywhere I go I try to make a point of exploring the local area by looking up the best Strava segments and going for a run. And this time I wasn't disappointed.

Since daylight savings time ended (why do we still do this?) we've all noticed it getting dark a lot earlier but undeterred I took the chance to go for a run after finishing up work one day, headed to the nearest Strava segmen…

Keeping it Clean

What does the rock care if it is broken or chiseled or drilled, or painted or marked or scarred - it's just a rock. When you look at a cliff face or mountain what do you see? Just a pile of rocks? Let me tell you what I see, because I can hear you all so earnestly asking...

I see a landscape that has been meticulously crafted and constructed by a passionate and devoted artist. An artist who masterfully works in oils, water, sand, wind and colors and angles so precisely to reflect light and create shadows perfectly at any angle. More valuable than the greatest oil paintings, ornate silk Persian rugs or magnificent tapestries. To me a landscape of cliffs, rocks and mountains is a priceless work of art. But unlike the paintings, sculptures, and silk rugs that are forbidden to be touched, felt or walked on this, the ultimate work of art, is made to be experienced by every possible sense.

I feel a simple peace in natural landscapes. A peace that otherwise only comes in the most special …
