Yo! Wow. Epic month. You’d think that the more epic = more posts, but unfortunately often that’s not the case.
We’ve had parties, picnics, races, travels and other stuff I can’t remember. The best stuff often doesn’t make it to my blog, like my New Zealand trip and riding the Great Divide. So while I sort these old events, here are some events in the future.
My friend Deanna Adams is racing the inaugural Arizona Trail 750, which starts today at the Mexico/US border. It’s self-support style like the 2700 mile Tour Divide race along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route from Banff to Mexico. What does this mean? No entry fee, no support, no checkpoints. Very awesome. The first part is along the Arizona Trail 300 which has been raced the last few years. The AZTR 750 requires a 22-mile bike portage through the Grand Canyon. Seriously. No bikes allowed. No rolling, pushing, pulling. It must be dismantled and carried on one’s back. Sound miserable? I wish I was racing. I’d love to be out there on this epic journey of desert, mountains, heat, snow, pedaling, hiking….gawd. Beautiful way to spend one’s days. Anyhow, you can follow Deanna’s progress here: http://trackleaders.com/aztr. Oh yeah, she’s on a fixed gear.
Lastly, the Swarm! twitter is active. Great links related to veganism, bikes, racing, streets, the environment, etc posted throughout the day. Check it out.
