You'll Be Another Year Older

And even less cool than you are right now if you don't make the Dead Baby Downhill tonite.

Ride starts at 7pm from the Canterbury. And for these folks being dregs of society...they're actually quite punctual when it comes to the start time of this. Don't miss it.

One More Time

A major piece of my commute is going to change after today. At 7pm the Bridge in South Park will permanently close by remaining open.... forever...

I understand the reasons for closing the bridge are numerous. I also understand the numerous arguments for trying to keep it operating. What I'm going to have to try and come to terms with is getting to know the staff and specials of new bars in of 7pm today...Georgetown and all it's fine establishments are no longer on my daily ride home. I woulda thought that alone would've been motivation enough for the Georgetown businesses to figure out a way to keep the thing open.
Oh one route closes...another opens.

It Took Something Like This...

For me to break my BlogSilence

Moncler Gamme Bleu Spring/Summer 2011 Runway from LAT Videos on Vimeo.

I'm still really excited that cycling is becoming a little more mainstream, but I swear stuff like this makes me want to punch myself in the face for riding a bike. Or...get into the world of fashion. Anyone think the Fashion world would be ready for what I could potentially unleash upon it?

{I do get rather farty and bloated with foamy latte's}

We're Coming Out! bad have I been at this whole "blogging" thing when I've seen the flyer for a party I'm putting on other sites...and it isn't even on the blog site that I'm supposed to maintain?! SLACKER!

Simply put...I'll be announcing the date, location, some rules, a website, drinking beer, giving some stuff out, making introductions and riping on PDX. And who knows...if enough people slip me shots of the Baby Making Juice while I'm there...I might even leak some details about a super secret project we're doing at the Raleigh Mother Ship for this event. Maybe...

If you enjoy the FaceBooks and the can find more information on the event.

All In A Wad...

Men's Journal just did a Cyclocross Fashion Shoot for an upcoming issue. Now...I might not know much about fashion, but I like to think I know a little about what to wear for Cyclocross. And I'll tell you version looks nothing like what they've created.

Men's Journal Magazine May 2010 Cyclocross Fashion Shoot from Dylan Coulter on Vimeo.

Where are the JumpSuits?
Where are the Leather Pants?
Where are the Plaid Skirts?
The Short Shorts?
The Red Suits?

In my humble opinion...they missed the mark completely. I think it's time to update my resume and notify them that I'm available for consulting for any future cycle fashion shoots they may attempt.

Did You Ride Back?

{Tequila Tonite...Tomorrow I ride}

Alright...I'm the first to admit it. I might have a 75watt bulb upstairs, but the source is only kick'n out 45watts of power. I'd like to blame beer...but as we all know, you never blame beer for your follies. Beer is like the lube on your chain that keeps things running smooth. A little bit of it will get ya around but if you're doing something big a litt more is needed to keep things running smooth. Use too much and things get dirty, messy and it ends up all over the place. Apply the right amount on a regular basis and things will run smooth and hassle free.

So on a Wednesday night where my chain ended up dripping wet...I decided I was going to ride to Portland that upcoming weekend.
200 miles. (ended up being 199)
One day. (All day)
On my track bike. (cause i've done it on gears before)
Unsupported. (what does that even mean?! I'm supportin my ass on every ride)
Alone. (I actually didn't choose friends are intelligent)
WTF?! (!)

Big rides have been documented. People have gone further. People have done it faster. People have done it more "hard core" than I did...I mean was wearing spandex and applying chamois butter like Nutella on a crepes. If I really wanted to get tough guy points I woulda rode in my Carhartts, Sambas, and a Tshirt and ate nothing but hot dogs with relish. Honestly...there was nothing about the ride that warrants any kind of anything.
So why do it? Not sure. I do know I've fallen into a rut as of late. I've been lacking motivation, inspiration, and deprivation. And this seemed like the right thing to break me of it all.


{whole lotta time to yourself out there}

{All this meant was I had another 50+ to go}

{this was the view I saw the most of}

{the search for beer}

{ and strippers. We all know that's the main reason I did this}

Did it work? Time will tell. And NO...I didn't ride back to Seattle the next day. That sh*t's dumb.

I Don't Think This Will Surprise Anyone

I was asked for one word that would best describe Cyclocross...

{give it a click if you can't read it as it is, or find your glasses}

What's kinda the list of respected people from the Cross community on this thing.

And then there's me.
