Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

While it does look good on you, buying a cycling cap at whole foods sounds like an Onion article.

Never let the potato convince you of much.

i was walking through whole foods and it caught my eye on an endcap...it was with some other hats, but it was kinda unique. it didn't have a price, just a WF tag so i asked a lady with a scanner gun on the aisle if she could check the price. it scanned and didn't come up in their system. she said that usually meant new inventory or something. she put a "try me for free!" (or whatever WF uses for their promo items) sticker on it and told me to enjoy it.
so it was free....!

Oh Brother I know that story. On snap back hats I have to go to the last 2 snaps. I recently ordered a had from Rivendell and that hardly fits.

North Georgia - Blue Ridge Mountains

47 miles. 5800 ft climbing. I'm pretty tired.






Works well...

One of the best climbs in the area. Tunitas Creek starts at the coast on Highway 1, and snakes it’s way up to Skyline through redwoods and next to a creek that’s super full right now. It gets fairly steep at ~10% in the middle for like a mile, but it’s a great climb and even more fun to descend.
