SICK WATTS (It’s a T-shirt)

YEAH!

Some t-shirts. Design by Ryan White, as he’s my design dude. Here’s what they look like in Illustrator:

They will cost $20. I should have them with me at Gloucester on Sunday (and a Square reader!) so track me down and you can buy one (or coordinate with me before hand). Cash or credit BABY.

Printed on Next Level shirts at Black Sheep Design in Portsmouth (printers of the Portsmouth Crit shirts this year).

Sizing is similar to American Apparel.

After the race, they will be on Metallic Poutine for $20 + shipping.

So…yeah.

Share your sick watts in your choice of power meter.

Ask Ryan A Question – Commuting to Work

Former UNH person Bella knows that I ride my bike to work, so she emailed me a “a few questions” and I obviously responded like an insane person with 1600 words of commuting KNOWLEDGE. For many of the people on this Internet Website, this may be old news and you may not care. But maybe others will like it? Who knows.

If you have other QUESTIONS FOR RYAN you can send them to ryank at exit17 dot net, and I think I’ll get them.

LOOK AT ME.

I’m all up in the front page of the Charles Coaching site.

This is interesting because:
1. My legs look awesome.
2. This was taken at the Portsmouth Crit when I was in a break with Aidan.  A few laps later, I SMOKED HIM for a $100 prime.  It was great.
3. Aidan looks sad because he doesn’t have an amazing beard, like I do.

Thanks to Hunter for FEEDING MY EGO.

HEY!  GUESS WHAT?!?

I’m doing the Ride On Washington – riding from Boston to DC over five days.

I’ll be joining Internet superstar Chandler Delinks, leg juice wizard Pete Smith, best friend in the world Tim Johnson, and, um, other people?

I don’t know who else.

We’re raising money for Bikes Belong, which is super important to me because I ride my bike a lot.  If you read this site often, or follow my Internet presence, you understand that I ride my bike to work.  And by working to make cycling safer and easier for people, Bikes Belong makes my commute better.  That’s two hours and twenty minutes PER DAY that Bikes Belong is trying to make better!

And the more people that ride bikes, the more people are healthy, the less we spend as a country on health care, the longer people live, the better everything is!  And then we can build more amusement parks with the saved money.

Hopefully I’ll be making more #TJROW-related posts regarding my PREPARATION (aka studying townlines along the route so I can WIN) to constantly remind you to support my ride!  So do that.  Please.  For the bikes.

Professionalism

I recently included this in an email for work:

I also hope that someone has seen How I Met Your Mother, season 7, episode 11, in which the Barney says the following:

 

Barney: You know how I got a guy for everything? Well they’re all in New York –my suit guy, my shoe guy, my ticket guy, my club guy. And if I don’t have a guy for something then I have a guy guy that can get me a guy. And oddly enough, his name is Guy.

 

Great Training Spreadsheet Update!

YES!  Mr. John Healy updated the Great Training Spreadsheet – and you can download/find out more here.

It’s really awesome.  I use it every year.  My favorite thing is that you can track equipment usage.  For example, I rode my TT bike 40 miles last year.  Which is why I’m selling it.

Let’s Hang Out In Madison!

I mentioned it on Twitter, but I am going to Madison for ultra-spectating of cross nationals!

I am very excited.  I can’t wait to hang out.  I am going to yell and scream and probably freeze to death.

I’m landing in Madison at 1 p.m. on Thursday, and am heading out at some point on Monday.

Speaking of which…is anyone out on the INTERNET driving from Madison to Minneapolis on Monday?  I will give you gas dollars, as I’d rather not rent a car take the bus.

Tumblring

I got le tired of trying to use the crappy “Press This!” button for WordPress to post interesting things from Tumblr.  So, using the tutorial here, I set up a tumblr so I can easily reblog/like things, and push that to this site.

SO, if you want to push Tumblr to WordPress, DO IT.

Race Announcing is HARD.

Being the selfless person that I am, I told Colin to put me down for “whatever, at any time” for Ice Weasels.

Which meant that to meet him in Somerville, I had to be out the door from Dover at 4:40 a.m., which also meant that I had to get up at 4 a.m. so I could have an appropriate amount of time to poop.

Hoooray.

At some point Colin also asked me if I could announce.

My brain heard “announce”, but my ego heard “talk into a device that amplifies your voice and projects it across a farm”.

GREG AND IAN SHUT UP I AM TALKING INTO THE VOICE AMPLIFIER.
