Blow shit up.


Work is crazy right now!

I got back from Ohio, got run down with work, got food poisoning at the movies, barfed for a couple days, raced the Oregon state road race and was pretty wasted from it, got a cold from it and work being so busy, one of my mechanics hurt himself and can barely work and my other mechanic is quitting to go back to school!

Yikes, seems I am back in the swing of things. Life is chaotic.

My little bike shop being super busy is a blessing and curse. I will (and any other small business owners you may know) moan about this to my grave. I am too busy to get any quality training in and not busy enough to hire more help. The precarious balance.

I generally dislike the firework holiday but, yesterday it was pretty sweet. Oregon is in the middle of a heat wave, which is fine by me. I ate way too much watermelon and avocado. A dog pissed on my bag and later on my bike. Pete drank a “car-bomb”, we rode out and watched a friend run a marathon, ate at Proper Eats in St. Johns, I took a nap and called my top secret cycling professora to hash out a training plan for cyclocross.

Did my first proper cx ride with some jogging and dismounts. yes!


The Veloshop is hiring a part time mechanic. Bring a resume by the shop.
