Plain Pedaler Contest 2014 - Pedal The Plains | Facebook

I’m in a competition to cover the 2014 Pedal The Plains as a rider/blogger in September. I need some help to get there. So I’m asking my online friends for that help. I’m not asking for money this time. Just a mouse click. No big deal, right?

If you’re on facebook, can you go give the pic at the link above a like or a comment? If you’re on twitter, can you share the photo link with the tag #HighPlains and @PedalThePlains? If you can do both, that’d be awesome. 

I’m starting out way behind, but I’ve got a few days and plenty of people. I know I can get to there. 

Update: Also, if you’re on instagram, please go give the photo a like there as well: MatthewPR_ Plain Pedaler entry

Thanks friends.

The drama played out before us in professional sports has become grotesquely artificial, and the energy lost as a spectator sitting on a couch saps what really should be poured into participation in life’s adventures.

We call this chasing grins … the only rule that applies is to sit and spin with all your worries be damned. Start living the manual life today.

I just found this inspirational for my current endeavors.  
I’m sure he wasn’t taking a jab at the Tour De France.

Imagine if you had to sell your bike

(Or, for the extra lucky folks, imagine if you had to sell ALL your bikes.) 


That’s the position that Kristin found herself in.

Thanks to overwhelming medical bills–a result of her ongoing fight against cancer–she had to sell her bike.  

For those of you who don’t know about her, she is the founder of Go there now and bookmark it. 

No, seriously. I’ll wait.  You can thank me later.

Someone asked where to get one of these. It took me hours and hours of googling for “SEAT POST BOTTLE OPENER” to find it, but DAMN I am glad I was able to find it. PHEW!
