Dale Brown's Photos from the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Austin, Texas

I received a note from Dale Brown regarding his photo sets and wanted to pass it along...nice shots of handcrafted cycles.

Texas Road Rash Inline Skate Marathon 2008

I had 5 skate practices in 2008. Practice #2 and #4 went badly.

I signed up for half marathon since 5k wasn’t offered. I packed the camera that I hadn’t skated with since Euroroll 2006. Time flies.

TXRR has matured and runs like clockwork under Richard Littrell and the City of Round Rock.

Saturday Elimination (11 laps, last man out)

Game plan:

Location

Dell Diamond
3400 E Palm Valley Blvd
Round Rock, Texas
United States
30° 31' 36.8688" N, 97° 37' 51.5316" W

Texas Flyers at the inaugural Houston Inline Marathon

It was a fun and relaxing weekend with a nice hotel.
Wish more skaters were there.

Ironman, the Melodrama: A Diabetic Brother, Oprah Winfrey, a Herniated Disc & an Ironman Challenge

A few distant friends asked why I quit inline racing. To make a short story long, below is the answer.

Ironman the Journey

I looked at the freshly opened gel pack: is it gonna make me puke or save me from meltdown? My lower back ached at mile 7. 19.2 miles go to. This Ironman thing was hard.

"Midlife Crisis. I can't afford a Porsche."

"Lost a bet."

"Can't find Tour de France on active.com."

Inline Skating the Hotter'n Hell 100 Wichita Falls, Texas

Hotter'n Hell 100 is the biggest bike ride in Texas. To finish full distance, the rider needs to get to Hell's Gate at mile 60 before cut off.

In zone 2, I skate 14 mph on smooth pavement, 9 mph on rough, and 7 mph on the really rough with fresh legs. Mathematically, I need to average 12 mph to make the gate.

Below is my event report:

Found some photos of Texas Road Rash 2007

It looks like a blast and I wish I could have been there. I found some photos and think I see Artem in some of them, but wasn't sure as I didn't know if he was going to this event...

I saw pics of Brian and Andrea, too.

And I love this one of deep, meaningful tunes in front of the porta-potties:

Corpus Christi Grind Fine Smells at First Whiff

Oh I wish this were about fine grind espresso wafting through the air, but no. Of first blush it seems hopeful, even. I wonder. The City Council of Corpus Christi, TX has authorized the Police to write tickets up to $500 for skaters grinding city property. That's cool because it's about grinding not rolling, as Police Chief Bryan Smith explains...
