Late Summer Ride

Here is the latest Cranky’s Corner video. This was in the works for a while waiting for me to film an intro, well it’s finally here. This is part of a ride I did at the end of the summer edited to some music. Thanks to The Vegan Cyclist for the editing tips on his channel, hopefully I did them justice. Now I just need some The Col Collective climbs to film on!

And for the record, the intro was filmed today when it was about 38F outside but I had my Castelli Cycling gear to keep me warm and my GiroSportDesign helmet to keep me safe. Oakley sunnies are a given.

A short (ok maybe not so short) video on me & my YouTube channel.

Help Support the King Challenge & the Krempels Center

10 Best Tips to Prepare for Levi’s Gran Fondo

My Bucket List

Well summer is winding down and with that will go the warmer weather and the increased daylight hours. A lot has happened these in first 9 months, not to mention getting married to my beautiful wife. But outside of that, other life curveballs basically shelled my event schedule before it even got started and have generally made it difficult just to get on the bike. I’ve actually done less miles this summer than I did in one month last year. In an effort to restart my motivationĀ I decided to create this bucket list as a way to capture all the things I would like to do someday. There is no particular order to these, just what came into my mind first – some I had planned on doing this year and others that just look really cool although probably unrealistic logistically & financially. This will probably be a living list and maybe I’ll even make it a page on my site, I’m not sure. I have added some context to each as to why I’d like to ride them, many are for charities that have meaning to me. And please feel free to suggest your own stuff, I’m open to suggestions and if I think the ride/race/event is a good fit I may just add it!

  1. Miles for Megan
    • Benefits a foundation in memory of a hometown girl that passed away from Leukemia 2008.
  2. King Challenge
    • Benefits the Krempels Center who is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with brain injury from trauma, tumor or stroke.
  3. CT Challenge
    • Benefits the nonprofit organization, Mission, who isĀ dedicated to helping the 15.5 million cancer survivors around the US.
  4. Phil’s Cookie Fondo
  5. Race CX again

  9. Ride all the Farm to Fork FondoĀ events
    • Bringing awareness and supporting to local farms and preserving open spaces.

    • Need to see the history and scenic beauty first hand to full appreciate.
  11. Ride & Run to Remember again (if they ever bring it back)
