I need to relax

Slept late yesterday for the first time in forever. I'm constantly exhausted with my new store being open and getting busy. Riding has been cut back unfortunately due to the long lists of "always something else" to do. The extra curricular work outside of the normal business day is tapering off so I should get back to riding in the mornings soon. I need it! Rode yesterday with a good group of guys out at The Hulk trail. It was nice to ride with no agenda, no GPS, and just have fun. Only made it one lap but rode one loop  five or six times because it had a super fun floater jump into a 180 degree berm and another jump up the ridge. Then we stood around trying to clear a tough little double with a crummy run in. Tried it 10 or 15 times and I think I was sliding sideways into the face more than half. Ugly. Finally got over it somewhat smooth and rolled on home. I think a 12 foot roll in with a six pack leading into that jump will work just fine. Maybe one day! Good times. Back to work!

Busy, busy, busy!

I can't seem to check everything off on my daily to-do list these days. Things just keep popping up. Makes the time pass quickly though! The shop is moving along nicely, repairs are coming in and inventory is showing up. Bikes arrive today! The website is up and running now as well. Starting to feel better on the bike as well after resuming riding again ( I was only off 10 days but it seems like a month!). Anyways- here's some more pics of the store.....stop by and say hi when you can!

Coming in 5 days soon.

Haven't posted in awhile as I've been kinda busy getting this together. After twentysome odd years of working for other shops or the bicycle industry, it's time to open my own shop. Liza and I had been talking about it for awhile. I didn't initially want to open in November but a great storefront opened up right where I wanted to be and at a great price. was now or never time. After a mountain of paperwork, permits, and government incompetency, The Myrtle Beach Bicycle Fix is a go! Got the building ready to go this Thursday and Friday with the help of Matt and Brad, Installing showcases and workbench tomorrow, merchandising tues, and inventory shows up wed. Open for business on Black Friday- Nov. 23rd!
I'm going to be providing professional mechanical service, suspension re-build/ tuning, custom wheelbuilds, bicycle fit services, coaching services, parts and accessories, rentals, and of course....bikes. Stop by to get your fix of anything bike related!
I have a Facebook page- check it out- here. No website yet- almost...I'll post that link as well. I'll post more pics and info when I've got it!

Brunswick Psychlo- X

Great race yesterday up near Wilmington. Starting to get some decent legs again. Still starting slow but now I feel good 30 mins in instead of 55 mins in! Every week gets a little better. Lots of short intervals are working as I can accelerate a bit out of turns now. Anyways- good race, good $, a DJ spinning all day, and a great group of people! The course looked a little so/ so on my pre-ride laps but once you dial in the corners it was really fun. I'll try to be back next year!

Next Race.....

Here's the flyer for the race this weekend. I wanted to race at Salisbury for the 4th round of the NC series but with this only an hr. away.......


Drove up to Boone, NC for a four day weekend with Liza. Spent the weekend camping with the R-Pod, Canoeing, taking part in the Halloween festivities, checking out Boone, and stopped by for the third round of the NC Cyclocross Series before leaving town. Really fun race with a great atmoshpere and a fun course! The weather was actually very fall instead of 80 degrees and dusty like last weekend at Southern Pines. Rode much better this race too, doesn't feel like I'm dragging a trailer out of corners quite as much now. Looking forward to next weekend's races! DH
