Bike Season 2010

After months of cold rainy/snowy weather, I'm looking forward to some proper rides. This year is shaping up to have some fun events.
Sea Otter Classic: April 15-18, Monterey

C & O Canal Trail
June 23-29, Washington DC to West Virginia

a 185 mile National Park path

Virginia Capital Trail: Late June. Jamestown, Virginia

Tour de Fat: September 25th, San Francisco

Has it been 3 years?
Heather and I loved the 2007 tour

The Ten
(abridged) Commandments of the Tour de Fat:

1. Put no means of transport before thy bike:

Come by bike because not only are bikes fun, but they help stave off some of our most wicked ills: Traffic, laziness, and pollution. Tour de Fat has a solution: ride this day, every day, and definitely when Tour de Fat heads your way.

2. Honor all other bikes:

All bikes are good bikes, and all those who ride them are good people. This is the one Bike Festival that cherishes bicycle diversity on our Cruise-ade.

3. May every generation come forth

6. New Belgium shalt not profit: Our goal is to raise money for bicycle and environmental charities. New Belgium Brewing Company does NOT retain any of the events' proceeds.


Racing in the fall?
