My Tour Pool 2015 page is up! Check it out daily after each stage to see how terrible my team (Florky) is doing (as it does every year!).

(p.s. From now on I will copy/paste the above text every year. See 2014)

Homemade Bike Rack Mount

June 1st, 2015

Below are some photos of the homemade parts I made for the truck that my old bike rack can interface with. I used pieces of shelf rail that hold the Yakima feet, and attach the whole stack to the rails on the side of the bed. This arrangement allows me to dis/mount the rack in a minute or so, which is how things have worked on previous vehicles with the rack, and I’m happy that it can work the same here. It’s not the prettiest thing, and I suppose I could paint them black so they blend in better. Anyway, they were about $250 cheaper than the “official” Yakima system, so a little unsophistication is acceptable.

Lotsa Rain

May 19th, 2015

According to this map, below, here in Boulder we’ve received roughly 300% of our normal precipitation over the last 30 days compared to normal over the same time span. It’s also been colder than normal. I’m kinda tired of all this rain and I’m ready for drier, warmer weather.

Unfortunately, for all of you west of the Continental Divide, you can see that the rain totals are not as impressive.

Clicking on the map will take you to the NOAA website with more information than you can handle. For example, here’s the disaster that is California.
