While I was looking for some shorts for summer riding at Goodwill, I couldn’t help but notice all things bicycle related in the store. So I had to pull out the camera and document. .. and no I did not get the leather shorts in the photo below.. they were to large … : (
Brandon is one of the fastest I know… Seriously! This guy is a beast when it comes to pushing those pedals. He’s been a supporter of our site from the get go–thanks bro! He was also a participant in our latest alleycat, the NightShift and rightfully took 1st place. If you ever get a chance to meet this guy, be sure to say what’s up!
LOL @ 1:30-1:45 “KNUCKLEHEAD he brought the bike in for ‘PEARS!”
p.s. Chris Hansen knows kung fu. Don’t mess with his kung fu.
I met up at the Lilly Pad at Main Street Garden Park to ride down to the Brew Riot with Cycle Celebration yesterday. It was a bit humid and hot, but the head winds kept us cool. When we arrived to the Brew Riot I did not expect so many people to be out there. The line to get a wristband was intimidating but it moved fast. We all drank good beer, ate tasty burgers, and hung out with great buds.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen an edit that makes me just wanna lose it! Hands down, Jensen going wild. Reminds me of my buddy Hector from H-Town.

The Long and Lonesome Road
Yesterday I rode to two different outdoor markets: The Deep Ellum Outdoor Market, which showcases local artisans’ goods (and where I ran into Colin of Switching Gears Cyclery), and the Farmer’s Market, where I went to sample and choose some tasty produce. Choosing to go by bike to these markets was great, because I got to notice lots of little details along the way, like an apartment building decorated with roosting crows (You know, “Put a bird on it”)! Cycling to these destinations also forced me to be extra selective of the fruits and vegetables I chose to purchase, since I had to carry them home with me on my bike.
This is Dallas, one of Oak Cliff’s very own cyclists and commuters, and his stunning handmade Serotta. You can’t help but stare at this beautiful piece of machinery, its faded color scheme and components. I’ve ridden with Dallas multiple times, and I know I say this about pretty much all the LOCALS, but Dallas is truly a friendly and down-to-earth guy. If you happen to be in the saddle next to this guy, be sure to bring your A game, because he can really haul.
