rockin the park blocks

According to WillyWeek readers, the BG is cooler than iced coffee. Once again, we've been voted Best Bike Shop in WW's yearly Best Of issue. Boo-ya.

Another big winner was Molly, who won the award for Best Transgender, All-Vegan Bike Shop Owner. Big ups.

I singlehandedly won the award for Best Commuter Racer this morning when I beat the 14 bus up Sandy through traffic all the way from 12th to 53rd. On a fixie. Uphill. Big ups to me.

Pretty sure I'm gonna win the Best Beer Garden Heckler award at the Portland Crit this Friday (as long as Tuckerman's racing). If you think you can challenge, or maybe just want to watch a master at work (by master I mean me), while watching some dorks ride around the Park Blocks, come on down to the Art Museum around 6. We'll rock out.

On a more cinematic note, if you haven't seen An Inconvenient Truth yet, you should. Seems that Al Gore has kept himself pretty busy since the 2000 election debacle. If you are trapped in your house or have no access to a movie theater you could also check out thier website, which is pretty hot, in a fact-ey kinda way.

Did you know they serve Tots at the Side Street watering hole? Discovered that little jem at Solomon's retirement party. Tater Tots. I know. Awesome.

I missed PIR this week, which made me sad. I'll get to do the State Crit Champs this year for the first time in 3 or 4 years, which will make up for it. Till then, I'm praying for a field sprint again... Just have to figure out how to fill Skerrit's tires with cement.

Starving? Have you seen Dean recently? He's really been packing on the old ounces this year...too much hanging out with Ping Pong.

Shannon, no kidding on the poundage. I snapped this photo of him out at PIR the other day.

Dean, maybe you should race up sandy on the fixe a few more times a week.

Yeah, I know, I've been a bad influence on Dean. There were way too many chips and cookies during the sale (real AND generic oreos. And yes, I was the one who introduced him to tots at the Side St. And I was the one who convinced everyone to get the cheesy tots AND the nacho tots. So next time anybody beats Dean at a race, remember, you have me to thank for it.

Are you using the word "gay" to mean "lame"? Here in America that's not cool. Try using "retarded" instead.
