SFT Kickoff – Thursday, August 18

My dear friends and family in Bend. Please join me at the SFT Kickoff Party this Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Compass Park in Northwest Crossing. It’s a casual, meet & greet potluck, so bring a healthy dish to share. Plates and utensils will be provided. (Sorry, there’s no BBQ at the facility, but feel free to bring your own gas grill if you’re craving some meat.)

We’ll have some SFT Schwag:

Perfect Foods Bars samples (YUM!):

Giveaways from Garmin:

Schwag and sunscreen from The John Wayne Cancer Foundation and Team Duke:


Plus, good food, community and lots of smiles. See you there!


Smiling and pedaling

I was lucky enough to fit in a quick spin on the knobby tires out at Phil’s Trail last Sunday. I figure since I’ll be spending the next 10 months riding on the road, a little mountain bike cross-training is justified. Check out this great clip of our fast and flowy afternoon ride.
