euro clash

Originally uploaded by iraryancycles.

rode this morning for a couple hours with sacha and tony kic down to oregon city and back. super chill rolling pace. very good to roll along and talk with sacha. we used to have a scheduled ride once a week but work has been too good and now we don’t get to hang out as much.
the balance between work and riding has been great the last couple weeks. i have been able to get a solid ride in before work and then maybe a little forest park mountain bike action on the way home. still have some good sensations in my legs from the tranny. daniel, greg, aaron, tony, rachel and i all did reach the beach this past weekend and had a f-in blast. we all met downtown, had coffee, took the light rail to beavertron and rode to the start. 100 miles out to the ocean in a paceline at 18mph. killer. greg and i ended up driving the pace up to 25mph for the last 6 miles and finished first on this scenic non competitive ride. hung out for a couple minutes and then i continued south into the headwind for another 50 miles to meet julie at the beach house for a ride back the next day.
when i hit the 140 mile mark i got a call from cody in iowa city. she told me that steve (g. pickle) had won the 200 mile dirty kanza gravel road race. i lost it. i was so happy and tired i just started to cry i was so happy. i remembered what it was like to win the first tranny. killer. check out the story at
yesterday i found this story too. true classic style.
