25.6 mile bike ride yesterday, deer everywhere! Bike on a Trail - July 20, 2011

After a week with absolutely no bike riding I thought I’d really feel the difference in my cardio on yesterday’s ride. Surprisingly, not only did my cardio feel great, but my energy and endurance seemed exceptionally solid. I think part of it was that I started riding early enough that the heat was not too much of an issue, and also the humidity was relatively low (my sunglasses were only fogged up part of the… [Read more]

A bit more on the Cotton Carrier; August “100 Challenge” open for entry. Thomas Vanderham tearing up the trails... with a huge DSLR!

In yesterday’s blog I mentioned a product I recently discovered called the Cotton Carrier. The Cotton Carrier was designed to allow photographers to securely carry their DSLRs while doing all kinds of activities–even “extreme” sports like mountain biking and skiing–and also allow photographers to have their cameras ready to shoot in about a second or two. As most of you know, I have been searching high and low for something like this. I’m not the… [Read more]

Chastised while mountain biking; New recipe: Acapulco Chicken Stir Fry! Bike on a Trail - July 13, 2011

Yesterday I hit the trails quite early in the morning. The temperatures were a little cooler than what I’m used to (at least at first), but the humidity was so bad my sunglasses and camera lens kept fogging up. I wound up doing 24 miles, and I wish I’d done more. When I got back to my car I felt like I had another 5 or 6 miles in me, but I had to get… [Read more]
