There is a new blog in town.....

B&L has their own blog, The B&L Bikes Daily Fix. Check it out.

Chicken Little is running it. Go look at the pictures of the 2008 Electra Balloon bikes.

I have been housesitting (more like plant and cat sitting) for the past week. I have been neglecting my updates, never fear. While nosing through the piles of REI bags, Crate and Barrel boxes and cat food containers, I found out that the Queen of Neoprene owns a computer. That's where I am right now.

The shop has been slammed lately, it's not even peak season. The other day I was at the coffee shop (go figure, right?). I heard two cyclists talking about shopping for new bikes. one of the cyclists had been by a shop in La Mesa and left disgruntled since no one spoke to him "not even Hello". The other cyclist mentioned he had heard good things about B&L. Mind you I wasn't wearing any work related or cycling related shirt. i didn't recognize either rider. While they were dicussing their upcoming visit to B&L, a "racer" heard them talking and recommended they stop by B&L. I don't know any particulars (B&L South? Did they buy a bike? etc.) but, it was great hearing positive criticism from "joe public".

I am grateful for many things; One~ I am excited to go to work everyday Two~ I have great friends/family & I appreciate every single one of them Three~ I am grateful for the life I have.

Why so philosophical? I have realized lately, I am a bad communicator. I get caught up with "now" and forget to stay in contact with family and friends. I think about them each and everyday but, never get around to calling them or even emailing them. I need to work on that. Maybe they will read this blog and understand...maybe not.

Part 1

Midnight Madness has come and gone. It was quite possibly the best one yet.

It started normal enough until Cinnamon decided to try on a Tri outfit, too bad there weren't pictures......Oh wait.
Wow! Glad that was the only photo.....
Is that Sasquatch coming from behind the Green Door?

12 of us met at B&L last night for a night of adventure. Cinnamon Star, Dainty, Jensifer, Tee-Bahg, The Colonel, Megs the Legs and B to name a few. As tradition we carpooled to the LiveWire on El Cajon Blvd, ordered up a few beverages and began our trek to the "ride". The group really hadn't warmed up yet and kept splitting into three distinctive groups. We regrouped at the start line and rolled into the mass. I forgot to mention Dainty had half a Chicken suit on and Tee-Bahg was Bad Santa. Ms. B and her little angels were wearing pixie wings, I on the other hand was in "Evil" uniform.
To be continued. It's blazing in my house, it doesn't help sitting with the computer.

Black Mountain Cycles

Varley is opening a shop in Point Reyes (NorCal), Black Mountain Cycles. I had been giving him caca for not showing the MTB trails up there.
