Agony and Bliss...

The Outlaw's 1903 Agony...er...Adventure Ride II went down yesterday, and I have to say it was probably the toughest single-day fixed-gear ride I've done to date. No surprise there, really. Sixty-six plus miles in the end, up and down what I have to believe are some of the toughest hills Frederick has to offer, paved or gravel-coated. Hope to have a write-up with pix soon. Okay, that's the agony half.

The bliss half is, well, the Bliss. The Bootlegger's Bliss is happening Satyrday, November 3rd, and promises to be the greatest mountain biking, homebrew-tasting event on that day in the mid-Atlantic region within one hour of DC, bar none. Come out and enjoy up to 20 miles of tight, fast, and fun singletrack, followed by a sampling of some of the area's best homebrew.

If you're interested in attending, please:
  1. Send an email now to BBpotlatch@gmail.com expressing your interest. You'll receive an email reply within a day or two with more information.
  2. Read this post for an explanation of the event and some details.
If you plan to brew and bottle, get it done today—you're pretty much at the deadline now if you want carbonated beer.

If you plan to keg, as I do, you still have some time to procrastinate, but not much.

Hope to see you there.

The Surly looks sweet. Dude your arm is as big as your leg. Get a hand bike, or lay off the roids. That home brew sounds potent.
PEACE.

Bit of a fisheye-lens effect there, my friend (just a bit). No 'roids--I value another part of my anatomy too much, ha.
