Summer Surf Safari

Been having fun going swimming here in Seattle, but man do I miss the real beach. After chatting with my good friend and photographer, Daniel Looman, I am excited that we are going to go surf sometime soon. Which of course made me day dream about the beach life I wish I had. Of course, I will need a ride to get out to the beach…

And a ride for once I’m there, if they match that doesn’t hurt either does it?

 

Pharrell’s Phunklectic Style

Pharrell’s fun-funky-fantastically-eclectic-mix-and-max-pattern-floral-embroidered-colorful style makes me HAPPY. He has begun doodling on his jackets and then having those doodles embroidered! How awesome is that? This recent interview with GQ really just made my day, not only talking about God, but his responses in general are just the opposite of snobby.

What I think I love most though, is that he is having fun with what he is wearing. He is not stuck to a certain trend that is deemed cool but is just wearing whatever he feels like! That is fashion to me.

Evolution Killed The Track Bike

Trek T1

I lost all of my photos and files etc a few months ago when my computer crashed. I know, I know, you’re supposed to back up everything, but I didn’t do that. So last night I went photo digging online to find all of the bikes I have ridden and their various forms. Here they are in chronological order:

I’m looking forward to getting a new bike built up over the next month and getting back to riding the bikes I’ve grown to love so much over the past 7 years. What a journey it’s been so far, both in breaking parts and bones, gashing tires and flesh. Ready to keep seeing where the fixed drivetrain limit is.

A huge thank you to all my sponsors over the years: Leader Bikes, Sizemore Bicycle, Resist Parts, SKYLMT, HoldFast, Coal Headwear, Zlog, CSK, and all the other supporters.

RESCUE

Painting by El Greco 1560 A.D.

Stumbled across this poem I had written for Leah Dankertson’s blog, Rough Hewn last advent. Based on Romans 3:9-26

None is righteous, no not one.

No one understands
no one seeks God
All turned aside, worthless they have become
no one does good, not even one.
Their throat is an open grave,
they use their tongues to disobey
the venom of asps upon their lips.
Their mouth curses with bitterness.
Their feet are swift to shed blood
ruin and misery in the paths are done.
The way of peace they have not known;
no fear of God within their bones.

Yet

The righteousness of God manifested;
law and prophets bear witness to it.
Through faith in Christ those who believe
with no distinction, deemed free.
Propitiation by His Blood
and rescued from the sinful flood.
Righteousness shown at present time;
justified are those with faith in Thine.
