Tour de Bikes!

‘Tour de Bikes!’this last Saturday was the 11th year for the ‘Tour de Whatcom’ bike tour with the proceeds going to charity. The Tour de Whatcom is a beautiful bike tour hitting lots of scenic highlights in our area with at least 500 riders this year. It was my third year as a volunteer parking bikes when they come off the tour and head for some food and drink at Boundary Bay. It’s always a fun day! Thanks for ridin’ by today! bb >*<

Bandit Cross Race 1.31.15

CCX_logoBandit Cross – Cascade Cross Series ~ Cornwall Park :: Bellingham, WA ~ (click logo for their website & registration info)

Brought to you by Fanatik Bike Co. Race Team this Saturday, January 31st.

“In 2015, this race has been re-named from Chiller Cross to honor the memory of Bandit, Ryan’s Australian Shepherd who assisted in the build out of every Cascade Cross course from October 2006 to January 2014. Rest in peace, and mud, Bandit!” Bandit the CX dog-Whoopsie stump

“This will be our fifth time out in January, and we’re still the only cyclocross series in the PNW to cross into the new year. It is one of our most popular races, which leads us to believe it is obviously a good time to race ‘cross’! We will be racing on the same weekend as Cyclocross Worlds this year, so you might also call this Bellingham Bandit Worlds!”  

Have fun all you cyclocross racers and fans out there! Thanks for ridin’ by to check this out & happy biking always… in all weather. bb >*<

‘neon white with ribbon…parked outside of ‘Brandywine Kitchen’ on Commercial Street as sun was setting a few days ago. I thought the red & white ribbon tied w/ a bow on the handle bars was a nice touch & the sun turned the white into neon!
