How to Shower: Women vs. Men

This is pretty darn funny. Of course, considering how many guys shave their legs in cycling...

The REAL truth about da PAB

Seems like someone was embellishing his story a bit about how he became known as da PAB. Well, you knew TWW's reporters were going to work overtime to figure out the REAL truth.

And here you have it...

It's all about the Benjamins...

Sweet fancy moses!!! Sorry, yes, it is old news, but I've been out of town and away from computers and stuff. Caught the last two TTers on ToC when I see BJM's name #2. Holy crikies! Freakin' good stuff.

Remember us little folks when you go even bigger time, okay?

I'm bummed though that my DVR at the computer doesn't get the Vs. channel so I can't do any fancy screen captures and video... :(

post V-Day poems

These are entries to a poem contest with the most romantic first line and the least romantic second line….very funny !!

Tonight our love will make us one
Please leave quietly when we are done

When I look in your eyes you take my breath away
…no really, yours smells worse than I can say

I love you madly
So why do I want you to go away so badly

You are rich, beautiful and vibrant
And I crashed you car into a hydrant

My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
Marrying you screwed up my life.

I see your face when I am dreaming.
That's why I always wake up screaming.

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you are not.

Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,
But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.

I thought that I could love no other
…that is until I met your Mother.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
sugar is sweet, and so are you.
But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,
the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head.

I want to feel your sweet embrace;
But don't take that paper bag off your face.

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes
-- Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

My love, you take my breath away.
What have you stepped in to smell this way?

Sea Otter Time Baby!!!

Come one, come all. Can I say that without getting in trouble? Anyhoo, join TWW and the Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) and volunteer at the Sea Otter. We'll be doing the Dual Slalom. A great action packed event - and you get the best seats in da house!!! And not to mention you get a nice little schwag package (T-shirt, festival pass for the entire weekend, and lunch). Not too shabby for a little of your time. If you're lucky, maybe you'll get to speak briefly with April Lawyer like I did - hopefully you won't frighten her though with some semi-stalker remarks... Really your honor, I meant no harm.

(this is April Lawyer if you were wondering why a scantily clad women is in this post - of course, do we really have to have a reason?)

Givin' up MTB'ing for...

So I went riding quads with a friend on Saturday at Hollister SVRA. I have to admit, it was a LOT OF FUN. Let's see, no lung/quad busting climbs, swoopy trail riding, sliding around turns, climbing steep a$$ hills with little effort, and high speeds. All on the dirt. The draw is strong... I actually felt guilty afterwards - normally after three hours of riding a MTB, I'm pretty worked. Not so with the quad.

Strange though - definitely a different culture out there. And as my friend said, "You'll see a lot of overweight people out here." And it is so noisy everywhere you ride. I swear I kept hearing someone riding right on my a$$ - but everytime I looked back there was no one. Turns out is was my tires making all that noise.

It was definitely different picking lines - normally you see one line, and go for it. Not so easy with a quad since you had the two tires in the front. You needed to find two good lines to get through tough sections. There were areas that I wish I was on my MTB because I could've gotten through much easier and faster. I think a motorcycle would be an easier transition. And what's up with the 5psi pressure in the tires? What a crack up.

The guys I rode with said I was a natural. I was able to keep up pretty good with them, and I was on a 250 semi-entry level quad. They all were on 450's. The last time I rode a quad was at least 20 years ago. I nearly killed myself then when I flipped it over on me. The impact was so hard that I crushed an aerosol can of flat repair between me and the pavement (it was in a fanny pack). Next time I'm trying one of the big bad quads.

But there is no way I can ever leave the MTB... so much more pure.

Will we see this in 2007?

There was some rumor floating around that we would see this in 2007 on le dirt. Enquiring minds want to know...

Oh BTW, the black shorts with stripes has been chosen for the kit if you were wondering.

Core Workout

Hate to move that previous photo down, but I guess some new content is in order. Has anyone tried the core workout in the newest Bicycling Magazine? Not the one pictured here, but the one with the dude and the chick on the cover showing off their abs.

That is some tough she-ite. 100 scissor kicks near the end of the workout? Sweet mother of pearl...

Just wondering if my core is that weak or that program is that tough.
