What is 252 miles, starts at 4 a.m., and has many hills and valleys? It’s the D.C. Randonneurs 400K brevet. Ha ha ha!! I may be laughing now, but I […]
Today was Bike to Work day! Of course you all knew that. In a fit of irony, Felkerino and I rode away from work and headed to the Rosslyn stop […]
This year I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and riding with Ritchie, a D.C. Randonneur. The first time I saw Ritchie, I had to rub my eyes and take a […]
Washington, D.C., is a lovely city for bicycle glamour shots. While what might come to mind most readily are pictures of bikes and monuments, that is not entirely true. One […]
In case you haven’t noticed or don’t live in the area, it’s PRIME TIME for tourists. I love watching tourists. It’s also a requirement if you are a pedestrian or […]

I am a big fan of the Surly Long Haul Trucker. Fellow blogger and cyclist Mike B. owns a Surly LHT in my favorite color, truckaccino. Mike is also a member […]
I know Felkerino will be doing a roundup of this brevet on my favorite news source, The Daily Randonneur, but until he does, here’s a quick summary from the stoker.
Previously I wrote about “panda portraits,” which are typically self-portraits you take while riding your bicycle. This past summer, though, Felkerino and I worked on taking photos of each other […]
