...I've been laid up due to some surgery. Minor kink, no biggie. Getting better all of the time.

Today on bikeportland.org Jonathan Maus wrote an article about the BLAM's next event...and a bit about yours truly too. Check it out:
'Cross Up' indoor cyclocross event coming to The Lumberyard
Posted by Jonathan Maus
Winter weather got you down? Then perhaps "Cross Up," an indoor cyclocross race being put together by Amanda Sundvor of Backyard Blam, will deliver you from the doldrums.
Cross Up will be tournament style races with two riders going shoulder-to-shoulder in each heat. Racers will ride customized Raleigh Furley singlespeed cyclocross bikes with flat bars, big tires and platform pedals. Amanda and her Backyard Blam crew have devised a course that will include some jumps, rollers, berms and barriers. Whether you like catching air or if you prefer to stay earth-bound, Amanda says the course will be a ton of fun for novice and experienced riders alike.
Or, as Amanda put it, "The course will be manageable for the novice... It won't be too intimidating... But for people that can get rad on their bikes they'll have the opportunity to do so."
As if that wasn't exciting enough, this event will be held at The Lumberyard. The indoor bike park (we shared the full scoop back in November) on NE 82nd Avenue is still a few months from its official opening, but the owners have agreed to host this event.

I am back to being one handed again, but I am trying not to let that keep me down. Have you ever seen that movie Emmanuel's Gift? It's about a one legged boy who rode his bicycle across Africa. Keeping that movie in mind I thought if he can ride his bike across Africa I can do bike repair with one hand-ish. Now I have a sweet green cast so if you want to sign it swing by the bike shop and show me some love.
