    Crusty Bits #1 Pictures

    I think I got at least one decent shot of everyone who participated in the first Crusty Bits. Enjoy!

    I think I managed to create a web album through Google. Here's the link. If it doesn't work, I apologize.

    There are a few additional pictures in it.

    Awesome shots, nice job. The Hillside trails are killer this time of year!

    Nice pics, Maura.

    (Except for the one in which I'm covered with the evidence of a wipeout!)
    Enjoying the meaningful pursuit of meaningless fun.

    Crustifiable Evidence of Fun on the Hillside


    Good Pics Maura. Thanks.

    My favorites are the shots of the riders coming across the lake with the Chugach Mts as a backdrop. Awesome. In particular I like the one of Greg wrapping around the corner at the bottom of the downhill.

    BTW - The link to Picasa works fine. I wasn't aware of this service it looks pretty good. I think I'll probably start using it. For those that haven't looked at that link yet it's worth it because you can view the photos at full resolution and even download and save any of the images you may like.

    FBBB Inspired Hawtness

    Finally I've gotten around to posting this.

    First I must say that with all the Frigid Bits gatherings I've attended this past winter I've had more fun in one season of winter than the last ten. It's been great to strengthen my friendships, renew old friendships and make new friends, with who - and it goes without saying - share the same passion that we all do. If they didn't they wouldn't have been out there in the first place. It's interesting to note, when chatting with the Frigid Bit-ers that, in most cases, what gets them out there and what keeps them coming back is the comaraderie and social aspect of what we do. "I saw the Frigid Bits mtbr.com Alaska forum and had to come out to see it for myself." That's what I heard quite often from new comers.

    I can't thank Carlos enough for inspiring us to get out there, regardless of the weather, to enjoy wintertime cycling, friends, food, and spirit. Believe me, if it was only about the riding I wouldn't be out there every weekend. The post ride activities are what makes it so much fun. Hanging out with my long time team mates; Andy, Greg, Joe, and Nick has just been the best. I can't wait for it to continue with the 2007 Crusty Bits this summer. I too am a believer now when I hear Carlos say; "The soon to be a regional Mt. Bike shrine and possible tourist trap, The Frigid Bits Burn Barrel"

    And now let's get a little more serious. At the first Crusty Bits this past weekend, I demonstrated, to a few select riders a secret method of chain lubrication revealed to me by the Dalai Lama himself. This technique is of such promethian proportions that I requested of each young grasshopper, that was taught this technique, not to reveal it to anyone as it was entrusted to me by the Dalai Lama to only show it to those riders of sufficient wisdom in the ways of cycling and who had wore through a minimum of 50 Pearl Izumi chamois's and suffered the cankerous blight of a thousand saddle sores, in order to be enlightened enough to comprehend and grasp the enormity of this knowledge. Well..... One of those so called englightened grasshoppers posted the instructional video on MySpace and now a hundred million turdhoppers know the secrets of the Dalai Lama. Sheesh!!

    Man, was that a load of crap or what. I don't think I've strung together so much bull in one sitting since I was in high school trying to get a date with the hot cheerleader that sat in front of me in Northwest Literature. Anyway click on the link below to see what all the fuss is about. Remember - Kids! Don't try this at home!

    26 year old chamois

    Damn Speedsk8, I've gone through alot of chamois in my day, but my original set of Pearl bibs with a leather chamois is still intact from 1981. I've got a long way to go-the Lama-he's a big hitter, you know?
