it’s been a while

so due to moving house and not having an internet connection for 2 months, it’s been a while since my last post. here’s a quick lowdown on what’s happened.

1. Eva and I moved to the Bay Area.

2. Eva got a job the day after we moved up here. TCB!

3. We went on a 5 day road trip upto the redwoods in real NorCal. Went hiking, did a jaunt on our cyclocross bikes and got scared by a herd of elk and made tasty food on a fire.

4. I found out that it’s possible to get groceries by bike, even when you live in the ‘burbs, but it’s easier with a crate than in a bag.

5. I earned my chip as a vegan baker by making croissantes. They were as amazing as they sound. (and look:)

vegan croissants!!

6. Did my first cyclocross race of the season, the dfl #2 race. I was heckled by other competitors and i lost my chain for the first time since running a single ring with a jump stop. There was someone playing punk 45s on a portable turntable in amognst all the dirt. Brian Welton (visiting from philly) predicted the records were all 1st pressings of first releases. Dont give a shit!

  1. Ok, the croissants look amazing. I’ll kill for a box of them. How about this, fly up to PDX for the USGP final and I’ll buy tons of ingredients and we will make like one thousand croissants. (with chocolate in the center of some) Then during the elite race we will have a giant food fight and start throwing them at my competiton.
