Oh man oh man oh man! This is it! I’m a nervous wreck between getting everything ready, dealing with some bike issues — really? bike issues the week of my ride???? — and what I’m hoping is just congestion from pollen?? Canadian Ma-Ma was in town last night on their way back up Toronto from Florida, then we have a rider driving up from Colorado to participate tomorrow, etc, etc, etc…… yeah, I’m stressed! But once we are on our bikes tomorrow, it will all wash away! AND, you won’t have to listen to me jibber on about it until next time! HA!
Oh! And for those wanting to know where to go at the Park Of Roses, look for the following guy, in the following jersey, & the following bike (you can call her Clem) sitting by a big pink poster board at a picnic table!

Are you riding? I hope so… I hope to see you there. If not, keep an eye out on the tumblrs, twitters, or facebooks for updates & mobile photos!!! And those of you needing info on the ride, follow the link below or click on the sign above!!!
Oh man. It’s intense in my head. Seriously, I can barely hear the music blaring in my headphones! I was going to try to write about Cocorosie today or maybe catch up on some tsuruloosies, like the new National song out or that new Blitzen Trapper (mp3 via MFR), there’s even something called Twin Sister that is hot I’ve never heard of but you know, I can’t… I can barely focus, plus I’m working on a new mixtape for Crane’s Day and honestly, the idea of “evaluating” a song or album or whatever just sounds…. Daunting.
So instead, we are going to dip into the archives. Now, I’m not a traditional man, or hang with traditional men (though I do like to chill and try to read zen – dang, got a sudden urge to listen to “Steal My Sunshine“), but it seems on important bike rides, I tend to share this little bicycle mixtape we built last year. We’ve had a lot of new readers join us since we last presented it in August for our 100 mile Pelotonia bike ride (WARNING: photo of my shaved gams after the link), so how about we pop this up again?????
Okay, seriously, my brain is toast, so this is it. I LOVE YOU ALL, HOORAY FOR BIKE RIDES, HOORAY FOR BOOBIES!!!! HOPE TO SEE YOU TOMORROW!!! But for now…
