Jacquie Phelan at Seabright brewery Sunday
For the folks of age to remember Alice B. Toeclips, and that aren't at Boggs.
Jacquie is supposed to be at the Seabright brewery in Santa Cruz this Sunday Evening. Seabright is celebrating their 20th aniversary. They are a sponsor / supporter of Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz.
Good food, good beer, good times.
Trailworkers is doing work in Wilder on Sunday.
PTB is hosting trailwork at Waterdog also.
time to climb
Seabright is all about bikes
Charlie (owner) is a good dude and an excellent MTB rider (for an old guy) from way back, and supports local trailwork. Stop by and throw down, in a weird way it'll make you feel good. Good brew, and food too.
dude....I'm callin Charlie right now!

Props to Seabright
I sorta panned Seabright's beer a bit about a year ago on this here forum and I just wanted to state that I stand corrected. The last couple of times I've been in they've had some really interesting stuff on tap, including a strong ale that blew me away. Major props to the owner for all he does to support the local bike scene as well.

That was an easy decision for me as I had to stay local to show a house 4 sale over here. Jacquie is a trip and a half. She has so many great tales of yesteryear that you just don't see in print much -- except on her blog.

She connects well with people & you can totally feel her compassion for other upNcoming riders. Oh Yeah: that Seabright Brewery Blur lives up to its name.
***I'd like to see Jacquie do a spoken word tour with Henry Rollins***
everyone drives a Used Car
Did you see her calendar? I'm linking to the item on lulu.com, but if you click the "Preview this calendar" option, there will be mud and nudity.
Jacquie was a lot of fun at Seabright last night. She is a colorful character and an inspiration for how much fun mountain biking is. Many in the crowd were delighted to hear her speak and it was a personal honor for me to speak with her afterwards. I thanked her for those many years of being a columnist for Bike Mag in the early '90's for illustrating that mountain biking had a distinct and eclectic culture.
Seabright's 20th anniversary is May 14th. They are really proud to serve the Santa Cruz (and mountain biking) community with great beer, food and a patio for all those years.
Seabright also had a change of brewmaster within the past year. The Resolution Red - one of my past faves - was a recipe of from the old brewmaster. Jason the new brewmaster decided to do his own new twist on the red ale and created the "Sacrilicious Ale" which could be the best ale that the brewery has created. Even Charlie - the Seabright co-owner - who gave up drinking about 10 years ago recognized the aromas coming from the vats as a true winner. The Sacrillicious is so good that they always seem to run out. Get it while (if) you can.
Somewhere I have a signed copy of that RockShox add from back in the day (its the first picture in the calander preview). What a great shot. Got it from Jackie back at a race in the early 90's. She was a hoot, and really encouraged my friends wife in her race.
