    I’ll be lacking a bit of spunk on this post … as energy levels are barely recovered from yesterday’s madfast BJM blitzkrieg of sic and twisted magic carpet rides up and around wilder campus shoots.  but, with deadlines and caffeine bubbling … let’s get straight to it then ~


    theabbey_santacruz.jpgThere’s a new’ish place to hang out and do coffee-house shenanigans in SantaCruz.

    The Abbey” … is a big chunk cut and renovated out of a church on the corner of Mission and Escalona.  Converted ~ and soothingly eerie in its homeysafe but communal atmosphere.

    It’s easy to miss, hard to forget, cake to park at, and pretty kickin’ with soundtracks that stray.

    Check info on the Event ~ if you’ve ever wanted to see up close and personal what a bike rider looks like if they race with the fastest horses in the world … well, here’s a damn sweet chance.

    It’s up in the Santa Rosa area … this weekend … where the temperatures will hover around beautific, and the skies will beckon you to put your 80 in.


    cwc-lg_2.gifSo, if you can’t come down and swing crazy with us at our SurfCity Cross race, why not get in your long ride with an exceptional crew and for an excellent cause. Cruz, Cozza, Nydam, Sayers, and maybe some other celebrity pedalers will show up and spin it free.

    It’s a fun way to support your local youth cycling organization … sign up online, or just show up that morning to reg (830am) and ride … with some very cool people.

    Team Swift … working to create champions.

    Yup … this is the time of year to get yourself exposed to and motivated by all the cats who make bike riding more than just silly hats and color’d spandex.

    Levi the Conqueror will be showing his badassness in support of the NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League at a Gala Dinner/Auction fundraiser you can reg to attend.

    There is also a silent auction that just started … (more info)


    The League is the coolest thing to ever happen, btw.

      YAhoo for all the cool stuff going on. Since it’s right down the street and Tony Cruz, Scott Nydam, my pal Mikeyhavoc Sayers will be there, the Santa Rosa – Junior Team Swift event on gorgeous roads is not to be missed.

      And get this, Steven Cozza, up and coming star of Garmin-Chipotle will be back from Europe to ride with the group. How radical is it that this cat came up through the Swifties from snot nosed little kid to Euro Pro????

      No better thing to support than cycling for youths! Get ’em early, while they’re still impressionable = a brighter future for all.
