If you like what I'm doing, and you want to help, you can always buy me a Coffee....
We got out late last night, which allowed me to get this little bit of footage on my way back to the car. I just thought it looked cool.

Tonight I helped film a promo for an event coming up in August. I'm hoping I can make it, but anything can happen.
The event is @roadamerica12, And it's an endurance bike event in Wisconsin. The only problem is the timing. I don't know if I can make it yet, but the venue is really fun and the premise even more so.
Either way, while the crew was filming their thing, I filmed this. (I'm old school, it's filming.) #cycling #video #roadamerica #TeamNuun
Had to stop to return a phone call, and when I look behind me I see this. Enjoy.

And as an addendum to my last post, @teravail rampart tires do pretty well on tarmac transitioning to wet gravel transitioning to compacted mud transitioning back to tarmac.
The glacial drumlin trail is interesting, that's all I need to say.

A quick thank you to the random stranger that helped me out here. While riding on the #GlacialDrumlinTrail I came across a down tree that blocked the trail completely. a rainstorm has rolled through here earlier today, and I guess it was rougher than we had thought.
With somebody's help who wasn't exactly dressed for heavy lifting, we moved the tree to the side of the road. It wasn't until here that I realized that the tree knocked over a sign when it fell.
I prop the sign back up, kind of. Hopefully it gets found and properly reinstalled. in the meanwhile, good deed for the day, we cleared the trail without tools. Not a long road home

A bit earlier in the week, I had to break up the needle and thread. I wanted to save patches off of something I wore out. But after two years of solid service, that happens.
so I had to do some hand sewing to put the patches on to my frame bag. And added a new patch that I've been meaning to do. 🎒 @rockgeist 🚴 @salsacycles 🥤@nuunhydration

This is a metaphor for my life.
Something that I'm trying again is wearing bib shorts under mountain bike shorts when I'm riding my tour bike. There's a lot of reasons, I'll save it for another time. But the pair of bib shorts I'm wearing today is from the @amdiabetesassn #TourDeCure. Hence the metaphor.
Just looking at me you wouldn't know I'm a diabetic. It's not until a layer gets pulled back you start seeing it. I know it's there, and I know that if the driving part of my life. You'd be amazed how much I have to work around it. But for most people, they have no idea. I could go into statistics about prediabetes, diabetics, and how many people are affected, but I have a feeling you already know that. I'm tired of it. And I really want it to stop.
There's a reason to make this post, check my bio for a link to my tour to cure page. I'm currently fundraising for the American diabetes association with a goal of $3,000 to qualify for an event in New England. Any adult donations are appreciated.
