A Week in Review

These next two months are completely full throttle for me. On one side I have deadlines for pre-season orders on about 7 brands that I represent before Interbike (mid/end September).

This means a ton of driving, this past week around Atlanta and Augusta, the week before around the Triangle and the list keeps going. If you are in the southeast, chances are I’ll be in your hood soon!

On the other hand there is prep work for cyclocross season. 11 hours on the bike this week, and a solid 3 hour ride today. Legs are feeling good and catching back up with my full throttle life. Even had a 30 minute run this morning that wasn’t too painful.

Also…I’m working on my hi-vis accessories on and off the bike!

Charlotte Cycling Classic: NODA-Freedom Park-NODA

Let’s see if I can convince my GF to do this on Saturday…

From 36th Street Racing:

On Saturday August 18th, at the crack of 11AM Noda-Freedom Park-Noda, the premiere “one day classic” comes to Charlotte and Dolce Vita Wines! Event Starts in the Historic North Charlotte Neighborhood (NoDa). We will race a “tortuous” route through the notorious Charlotte Hinterland to Freedom Park and back.

We ask everyone to read and revere “Rule Five”. This family friendly ride is not for the faint of heart. The organizers have scoured the Charlotte roads and have found multiple “Cols” “Bergs” and “Pave” sections, including the world famous “Greenway”.

Registration opens at 10 am with start at 11am. A $10 entree Fee gets you a feed at the halfway point and lunch at the finish. There will be Music and awards ceremony at the finish.

Charlotte Cross City Trail

A new project is in the works within my beloved Charlotte North Carolina.

Charlotte Cross City Trail

A 26 mile trail that would connect the northeast sector to the southeast. Connecting major colleges to major downtown city and allowing many communities to be connected without the need of a motor vehicle.

It is exciting to hear that Charlotte has even thought outside of the box as far to think of this. It is frustrating as it may not be part of the current budget, but it is still lives hope in my alternative transportation heart. While I have my fingers crossed that our council will get this project pushed through on the current budget (I’ll be able to tell you by the end of the month) I am excited that we have the plans in place to see this happen somewhere in the future. Hope for Charlotte, hope for bikes, hope for making my city more friendly so my kids don’t have to always drive to be safe.

Viva La Bicicleta

Philosophy of Viva La Bicicleta 

Simple: get everyone out on a bike and riding.


Viva encourages everyone to feel the freedom one gets from riding a bicycle. You see more of your surroundings, feel the wind in your hair (under your helmet!), and get your blood pumping from being active. We then feel good about ourselves.

Tshirts and Posters available. My favorite is this awesome track poster!

This Campaign has ended. No more pledges can be made.
