It's full but...

From the Turning Wheels for Kids website:

"Due to overwhelming response from the community, we are unable to accept any more teams or individual volunteers."

If you want to do this, just let us know - we can still get you in under the TWW name. You'll just have to be on your best behavior and dress appropriately.

See ya all there!!!

P.S. - PF, I'm definitely there now so you need to show up because I'll certainly need a back rub...

Sad, sad day

Terrible news reported out of Australia. Greg of the Wiggles fame will no longer be performing with the group.

Too bad it wasn't the wacky Asian guy Jeff - I was hoping to cash in on that gig.

EPO vs. T & A

Yes, this photo was posted before, but there's an interesting discussion going on on the oV Channel...

Here's the previous post that used that photo. Not sure if this photo can be posted too often. Yes, I know, my name is PIG.

As we ride through Temescal, there maybe some activists present (whom we should support) trying to keep the A's in Oakland.

1000 Bikes!!!

TWW will have one of the largest contingents there. Come and join us - it will be like a big par-tay. What a great cause. If you've been wanting to do some volunteer work this year (you know you should), here is a great opportunity.


Bringing smiles to kids one brand new bike at a time. Last year 452 new bikes went to children in need. This year we are pushing towards 1,000 bikes!!! Let the fun begin.

Finally! We ( are getting back to you with our most humble plea…

To all of our eager volunteers regarding our “Bike Build 2006”:
Thank you for being so willing! Thank-you for being so patient!

We have a date: Saturday December 16th.
We have a place: South Hall of the San Jose Convention Center . Here it is: It is BIG so we have room for everyone.
We have a start time: 8:00 am.
We don’t have a finish time because we will be there until all 1,000 (more or less) bikes are built. Did you know that 1,000 bikes lined up end to end would be about a mile long?

Has this ever been done? We don’t know!

Here’s the deal: We need you and your family/friends/even enemies to come help us assemble 1,000 new bikes for under-privileged and health challenged kids of Santa Clara County . You can stay for the duration or for less, either way this will be a great day!

They start like this:

And end up like this:

Only more! Lots more!

Here’s what you need to do:
Recruit your helpers: Co-workers, teams, family, whoever and let us know how many will be there. We need skilled and un-skilled volunteers. We can pair up willing learners with a skilled person. There are also other needs besides assembling bikes such as quality inspection, tracking inventory, shuttling bikes, cleaning bikes, filling tires (only 2,000 tires!) loading and unloading trucks, tool support, food distribution, and more. We simply ask that you come eager, happy and willing to serve the youth of our area.
We do ask that minors come with a parent or other responsible adult.

Please see attachment for tool lists and more specific information regarding the actual bike assembly process.

For groups and teams: If you want, please bring a sign or banner identifying your company or group. We want to know who you are and recognize you in our pictures and press. Be prepared to have it free standing as we cannot hang banners on the walls.

Please RSVP with your expected numbers of those who can participate by November 30th.

Just a note: Some groups already have team leaders to save me from having to interface with everyone. If you are part of a listed team, please report to your team leader. Team leaders contact us ASAP with your expected numbers.

If anyone else wants to head up a group, let us know. Otherwise, everyone else contact us at:

2007 Jersey Idea

Well, we're starting to think of jersey ideas for 2007. This collage idea was submitted by Eve - frightening I must say.

Dayamn frightening.

Next idea puh-leeze. How about the Hooters Hula Hoop girl instead?

What a beautiful country!!!

Well, she said she hoped this didn't end up on the Internet, but when you paid as much as she did to get a bod like that well a little additional exposure surely isn't going to hurt. No it's not going to hurt... and don't call me Shirley! If you want to join her fan club, let me know, I've got her e-mail address... :)

Hula Hoopty (1.1mb)

Filmed live on location in Phoenix, AZ.

I see a perfect event for VB Surf City CX series... or at least a good costume for next year's Halloween race.

BTW - You need to have Quicktime installed to view.

Fond memories of Boggs...

Dang mobile blogger isn't working correctly, otherwise I would have posted this yesterday.

Was on a plane to Phoenix today when they said, "Your flight attendants today are Heather and Jaimi." I kid you not. Although not nearly as tasty as their namesakes. Woulda been really trippy if the pilot said her name was Mo.

Who Says this site can't keep up w/ current issues?

We missed the TWW Olympics :(

Well, we missed out on the TWW Olympics this year. But maybe next year we can do something bigger and better. And perhaps mix in the VB's and Meeces to add to the fun.

Here is a short video (19.1mb) from a previous event. Good fun.
