People are funnier on a bike

I don’t know these folks, but they got at least two things right; people should ride bikes and people are funnier when they do so:

Out of office, bikes, cameras, sun, and time… sweet time.

Ok – so it wasn’t a vacation or anything yesterday, but we were out of the office, and taking pics of bikes, and enjoying a nice day and took a long, long time doing it. Fun and tiring all in one nice pita. More on this soon:

SSWC08 – The PA posse invade wine country

The powerhouses from Pittsburgh & Philly united to take on the world of one speeders this past weekend in Napa. It was a great couple of days with our Pennsylvania based crew made up of some friends from Dirt Rag , Bike Sport, Dave, the Dutch Hammer, and myself.  �

Upon arrival into the golden state [...]

Park your bike

I ran across this sign yesterday. It’s fair. I think sometimes we all think that every spot a chain or lock can run through is fair game for leaving our bikes.  It’s really not, and in the end, we need to be considerate of peoples places.
More community bike racks/parking please.

 

24 Hours of Allamuchy – too

We also have 24 Hours of Allamuchy this weekend – viva New Jersey. It’s big stuff for us. Local scene and good peeps.
We love it so much, we have been there all day getting ready. Here’s proof:

You can’t have sausage without beer – SSW 08

Yup, that’s right. SSWC08 is back in the states for the first time since 2005. How can you pass up heading to Napa this weekend to compete against some of the fastest guys & biggest partiers pushing one gear?
If you are joining in, you best not show up unprepared. A good outfit is crucial to [...]

Flashlights with staying power

Handheld flashlights.

We all have them. We all need them. We all use them. We may not all love them?

I am not sure why – our world loves headlamps. They make sense to us. We can move and work with our hands free and, lets be honest, they just make us look cool.

 

 The truth is that [...]

Wiss, not Wii, tech support

“I snuck out for a hike with the dog last night to test her new Palisades Pack and booties when I ran into a volunteer in a hard hat and covered in dirt who told me about the Sustainable Trails Initiative.  For those of us who ride the trails regularly, this is a chance [...]

The Olympics got me thinking

I like the Olympics. I have friends in Beijing competing, so I have been following. Not closely, but just enough. In my search, I stumbled along a great cycling graphic from the ‘72 Munich Olympics… this led me on a google spiral. Here are a few of the 1,000 or so posters that I looked [...]

ok, what’s next?

OR is done.  We presented our newer wares – and, yes, we have smelled the scent (at some moments – odor) of success. At the show, we presented the new EOS Bike, the Swerve, the Amp Series of handhelds, and talked about new specs – brighter lights and longer burntimes.

Here is a second cool example of spec [...]

Hitting the road. That’s what this is all about.

 

Life at PT sure is interesting, but it’s what happens when we saddle up and head out of Bordentown that fuels our passion and provides inspiration. Our travels present the opportunity to explore new places, see old friends, meet strangers that grow into old friends, and share our enthusiasm for the outdoors. www.livingonthedash.com is our outlet to share these experiences.

 

Sit back, enjoy and spread the love.
