2010 so far.

I took up cross country skiing. I skied 13 hours in 5 days, then the snow melted and I started riding bikes again. I was lucky twice. The first day I owned skis I went to North Park and ran into two women skiing. They were actually both ski instructors. Having never even downhill skied before, I thought it was going to take me a long time to get it. However, much like cycling, there is a sharp learning curve and after only a few hours I was pretty good to go. Then I was lucky enough to go with Sharon to the big mountain where there 20+ miles of trails. She has been doing it a long time and stopped me from making any Noob moves.

Other things:
A good blog
Cycling Inquisition interviewed me about making those dumb cartoons. However, the blog is pretty awesome and worth reading.

We/I are working on 2010 sponsors and the team. We have some frames and tires lined up it looks like. ... awesome.

Nice Pics! ...far less blur in the images when you are moving only like 8 mph or so, eh?!

I was driving to Ohio like 2 monday's ago and I noticed that from around the middle of PA up until about Youngstown all the trees had snow on them. Everywhere else it had either melted or blown off. It sure was beautiful. Nice pictures.

I would have gone for a bit of nordic skiing this winter, but it was not to be. I spent about 5 days inside on the trainer then said "screw it" and went back outside.

Wow Steevo - these are amazing pictures. I was talking to my Grandma in Canonsburg and she was telling me about all the snow and how her neighbors were all trapped. They didn't have power for a few days so she cooked on her fireplace for a few days. My Grandma is pretty awesome.
