Holla Memphis - you're going big-time

In case you missed it on your blog roll today, Padraig over at Red Kite Prayer (formerly of Belgian Knee Warmers) gave a little shout-out to Memphis.
The greater mystery is composed of hundreds of riders, riders I meet everywhere I go. And by everywhere I mean not just LA, but Chicago, Memphis, Boston and beyond. There are those riders who will happily sacrifice any sort of peak, any shot of ever seeing the front—except in the event of a complete mistake by them or others—in exchange for being able to ride comfortably in the pack year-round.

Nothing huge, but RKP is the big-time for all things PRO and Memphis's inclusion is nothing to blush at.

Happy to see it, y'all.

Anyway, I also wanted to announce a new venture that Anthony "Taco Rocky Horror" Siracusa and I are working on, Community Powered Cycling. Our focus is on the ways in which people use bikes and build communities and sustainable lifestyles from that common passion. I hope you'll take a look. Let us know what you think and participate in the conversation. Memphis, like a lot of other places around the country, is making this moment count, and we're really hoping to acknowledge and promote that.
