Best of 2009

Returning from a tropical vacation
to -20F commutes in Anchorage in January.

***

Fun rides on snowy trails in spring sunlight.

***

A spring road ride from Anchorage to Hope,
and the tasty burgers at Tito’s at the end.

***

The Denali Highway.

***

Team Muschi Schmerzen moving up to 13th place
and shaving more than an hour off our time
from the previous year, because this time
we actually had a clue what
we were doing in the Fireweed 200.

***

100% organic bike racks.

***

The usual big rides on the Kenai:
Devil’s Pass, Johnson Pass, Res Pass.
Spectacular, as always.

***

Stickers.

***

Riding the hell out of our new local trails.
(Or trying to.)

***

Crashes.

***

Falling into cow parsnip on the way to Crescent Lake,
then spending hours with my leg feeling
like it was plugged into an electrical outlet.

***

Rain. Leonard. Enough said.

***

Crewing for Monkee and Jules during
the Soggy Bottom 100,
and watching so many Faces of Death
roll through checkpoints
late in the race.

***

Moab.

***

Fruita.

***

Tater, buddy.

***

One word: Mankini

***

Happy New Year
