2 tickets to paradise



gravel

Originally uploaded by iraryancycles.

got my tickets to iowa today so i am for sure doing the trans iowa in april. funny to look forward to something so brutal as a 325 mile gravel road race in the spring time.

i am looking for sponsorship to help cover the cost of travel to and from iowa. i hate asking people to pledge money or sponsor something because in most cases it is a chunk of money but after realizing how many wonderful people i have met through riding, racing and framebuilding, if 50 people kicked down $10 each, it would cover my plane ticket to iowa. think of it as buying a friend lunch or a couple cups of coffee. the $10 would not go un appriceiated either. i am thinking of either postcards or t shirts for thank you gifts for sponsors. any feedback in this dept would be great. if you want to kick down $10 please send it to me at:

524 NE Church
Portland, OR. 97211

i will put your name on the list of people that kick ass and you will receive something from me in return, including praise and updates from my gravel road race campaign.

thank you all.
especially cd and the colonel g. pickle.

    What form of money do you want? Cash, checks, Dracmas?

    [hmm. lost a comment somewhere…]
    take 2:
    ira, you are likely too young to remember, but the beatles sang “your mother should know” so ask your mom if she recalls wonder warthog, one of my favorite heros from the 60s. in every episode, the little rodents whom he sought to save would have to come to his rescue, with the rally cry of “wonder warthog is in trouble!”
    so it is only right that i send you $$.

    I’ve got two tickets to paradise
    Got a surprise especially for you,
    Something that both of us have always wanted to do.
    We’ve waited so long, waited so long.
    We’ve waited so long, waited so long.
    I’m gonna take you on a trip so far from here,
    I’ve got two tickets in my pocket, now baby, we’re gonna disappear.
    We’ve waited so long, waited so long.
    We’ve waited so long, waited so long.
    I’ve got two tickets to paradise,
    Won’t you pack your bags, we’ll leave tonight,
    I’ve got two tickets to paradise,
