it was another gorgeous evening to spend on the bike

we caught up with everyone at the hut.

i was running late for the tnmwr but got word that they were heading out on the mopac to eagle. i ran into jp just as i was leaving town at 84th street and we time trialed it to catch up with the group.

the kid

the kid did alright tonight.

road closed?

we were cruising through the roca rollers and we passed through some 'road closed' barricades. sometimes that means it's closed just to cars so we kept going. a mile later we had to do a little cyclocross action across the bridge.

the ladies

jen and janna set the pace as we climb out of bennet.

dialed in

my position on the new frame is dialed in pretty close to where i want it. i put it in the big ring and time trialed the last 12 miles back to town and was in the drops the whole time. nothing went numb, props to the fizik arione saddle.

grey skies

i wanted to get some miles in before dark, and it started to rain as i headed out of town.

seven samurai

i went up to omaha for the grand opening of the new cinema. i finally got to see seven samurai on the big screen. it was well over 3 hours long, but what a classic.

jen is working on using those powerful pistons of her´s.

monday night roadie ride

we had a decent group of peeps out on the ride tonight. even little burke showed up. the kid is only 11. with his dad showing him the ropes he has a fast future.

campus kitties

campus can be a dangerous place at night... wild creatures lurk around every bush.

bikin' across america

i headed south to meet up with janna and two of her old college friends, jean and rob, who are riding cross-country for the 'wish ride across america.' janna had ridden out to meet them in fairbury on saturday (and this was after her winning ride in the state games time trial earlier that morning) and rode with them into lincoln today. damn, janna sure knows how to put in those miles.

white carbon

i'm still getting used to my new carbon frame. the sexy iridescent paint mesmerizes the rider into thinking he is fast. it's very deceptive.

oh them rollergirls...

it was a nice friday evening, and i cruised downtown for a bite with my friend taura (aka skelataura). we ended up at ali babas for some chicken kebab. i dig taura's old school b-stone bike with a sweet set of velocity deep V track wheels. no doubt the years living in san fran and having bike messengers as roomies had an influence on her choice of parts. (and yeah, i finally got a new camera phone)

i haven't been posting lately because i need to get a new camera/phone. so in the meantime... let's see what happens when ultra chic meets bike messenger culture.
