My OWLE Bubo is on its way

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Likely one of these. Got my e-mail with tracking number this evening.

A Hat for my Cat, thanks to Terry

5128_100419400778_547330778_2472943_1494762_nToday, I received my Catlike Helmet from La Bicicllette in Vancouver, Canada via the good graces of  Terry Stankunas [BROL Member tytrike]. Terry and I worked the Giraldo Tour and have both commented on other BROL Threads. We are also Facebook friends. Terry made easier the purchase of a helmet that is in high demand. Thanks many times to Terry for doing a friend a favor. If I am fortunate, I will ride with Mr. Stankunas one day.

Catlike Whisper PlusThe Catlike Helmet in made in Spain. I have the Whisper Plus version. You may have seen riders wearing it in the Tour de France.  I certainly noticed it when Mark Egland on Big Cat, HPV wore his to ride with Mr. Giraldo. With Mark’s good wishes, I perused getting one, but in black—what else?

Tour of Discovery - Day 83 038 So, where is the black hat to go with my Catrike 700. Here it is…

A blooming model sure would have made this task easier. Anyway, you have some idea how the helmet looks on yours truly. Photo from my iPhone. It’s about the Catlike Whisper Plus Helmet anyway.

Thanks Terry!!!

Don Saito has been moving ~ Days 244-251

Artaca CA

Yesterday, I linked to Don’s post from Day243 . Today, I see he has added 8 articles and is now in Artaca, California. The 3 days there has given him some upload time. He is getting ever closer to home—San Francisco.

A testament to human strength & endurance

Congratulation to John Schlitter, ultra cyclist, RAAM Racer, and rider extraordinaire. This is extracted from the ‘Bentrider Online Home Page.

Bacchetta’s own John Schlitter was the top points finisher in the UMCA’s Ultracup standings, finishing ahead of all other bicycle types and age groups, and a very tough international group of UMCA and RAAM racers.   John’s 197 point total was 7 points ahead of the next European upright bicycle racer, and 30 points ahead of the next American upright competitor.

53 year old John has been on a roll over the last six race seasons, starting with his Race Across Florida all bike record in 2004, and current RAAM recumbent records in 4 man (2005)  2 man (2007) and solo (2008), among many other records and victories listed here…

Here are the 2009 year end Ultra cup standings…

I watched and cheered John in his 2008 Solo Race Across America. John, we are all proud of you! Again, CONGRATS!

Take the peaks & the valleys ~ 11/09

The daily statistical curve remains relatively flat, although declining. Our average daily pageviews remain at 270 [given the highs and the lows]. This trend favors the 100K Milestone Contestants who predicted the milestone would be reached later, rather than sooner. OTOH, I expect an uptick soon. Weekends are generally down anyway. Some hot Silk stuff [or coverage of a cycling event] will perk that curve up. I have neither at the moment. Thanks to all who come over. –jim
