Cannondale Bicycle Manufacturing Fabricating and CNC Shop Photos

Dale of Cycles de Oro posted this photo link to local some groups . I take it Cannondale bicycle manufacturer is up for sale. Meanwhile, if you like to see where things were made, there's a lot to see here. I think the sale is over so I'm not sure how long these will be up. Boring for some; heaven for others!

Pomplamoose music, Hyundai holiday commercials

Too cold to skate so I've been watching a lot of TV and noticed a young couple singing and clowning around in some car ads. Something about the way they were shown made me think I was supposed to know who they were. It only took one search for "hyundai singing duo" to find out that they were Pomplamoose, multi-instrumentalists Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn who've become YouTube sensations over the past year and a half or so.

How did the Minnesota Vikings' Metrodome Collapse?

Since the spectacular collapse of the Minnesota Vikings' stadium on Sunday morning (Dec 12th 2010), I have been itching to find out exactly what caused the teflon and fiberglass bubble to burst. Or rip.

Davidson College Long Track Speed Skater Earns Ice Time and a Job to Help with Training near Charlotte North Carolina

While he might want to do a little more research on long track skaters from the Southeastern USA, I am glad to hear that Erik Ducker, 18, is getting ice time and work opportunities to keep him going as he trains to qualify for the USA long track speed skating team. I'd love to share some of that ice time, but I doubt that will happen! I'd need to get some ice speed skates and gasoline to get there of course!

Tiny Nation Hosts Huge Luxembourg Pro Cycling Project with the Schlecks, Cancellara, O'Grady, Voigt

Get ready to cheer for the mouse that roars (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053084/) as Fränk Schleck and Andy Schleck plus former Saxo Bank riders (and others) will be joining them for a super team that looks pretty exciting. Other squads are looking strong, too, especially with some of the recent consolidation of major teams.

Pure Snow Footage from the Beeb

There's nothing new about snow, but there might be something refreshing about a traditional news station's website showing a video blissfully void of journalistic interference. How perfect! What better way to depict a 'freshly fallen silent shroud of snow'?

Inline Skating From New Jersey to California for Charity

Here's a story about an ice speed skater, Al Schiller, who skated "across the country" for charity. It raises some questions and sparks some thoughts...even some doubts...but is nonetheless interesting and for an important charitable cause. So here are a few thoughts and questions. I'd love to hear your impressions! 

It's great that Carley Dryden did such a long and thorough interview. I thought for the most part it was good coverage based on a nice conversation. It is clear she is friendly to the idea and to the skater. My reactions:

Northinsouth Birthday Festivities Unclear But Good Wishes Certain

I wanted to post a birthday greeting to Northinsouth to say thanks for so many years of roadskating and dreaming we could do more than laps in our beloved Country Park and along the trail up to Bur-Mil. We set our sights on Tour to Tanglewood and Athens to Atlanta when we knew so little about what we were heading for.

Inline Skating Pre-Teens Call to Help Sixty-Year-Old Snoozer Driving on Drugs: Now Who Do You Want to Keep Off the Streets?

Here's one reason to keep street skaters on the road where they belong if they have the skills (just like cyclists who have the skills, and automobilists, too). That way, they can keep an eye on the neighborhood and watch out for the safety of adults who can't control themselves and go out driving around after first buying, then using drugs.

Inline Skating Bavaria (Karlstein Bayern Deutschland) Pete Yorn Precious Stone Keith Richard Open G Guitar Tuning DADGAD Eagles

OK I found this on the Roadskater.net news sidebar. This is just a quick one that mentions inline skating in Germany. If you want to be more miserable, check out the view from the mountain, the inside of the salt mine, and the inline skating on country roads in the forest. Yowee. Sweet views. Makes me miss those NC mountains, too, though they are older and more rounded, in general. Of course, I'd like it if dude would wear a helmet, but I am happy to have someone showing some skating as part of the highlights of visiting a region.

New York City Marathon Articles of Note for Logistics, Medical, Volunteer, Event Planning Purposes

I didn't watch the NYC marathon this year, and the coverage was delayed and compressed I believe anyway on NBC (though for those with Universal Sports I believe it was live over the air free digital television...in Atlanta, for example).
