Washington State Gravel Grinders? via:r/GravelGrinder


I moved to WA about a year ago, and have been searching for a gravel group for a while now. Is this just not a thing in Washington? If any of you have any info on even just dirt road maps of WA is appreciate it.

Ride: Another winter Eastwood ride

Ride (Rochester, MN): Distance: 9.2mi, Elevation Gain: 819ft, Moving Time: 00:56:18, Average Speed: 9.8mi/h

Above are the heart rate charts for the ride. It was a good workout, spending the most time in zone3 Tempo, though the combined time of about 35 minutes was spent in the other 3 zones I hit, zone1 Recovery, zone2 Aerobic and zone4 Subthreshold. The big dip in heart rate at about the 50 minute mark was when I stopped to take the above Instagram shot.

Finally, I was poking around Sporttracks and generated the chart below which I thought was a little interesting.


It's the total distance I've ridden each year since 2008 along with the total hours ridden. I'm approaching the 4k for miles. This is the most I've ridden since I've started keeping track, and I think easily since I was in my 20's on Oahu. Things seemed to work together well to allow me to ride more. As we get closer to the new years, I'll post more about a year in review with charts to compare against previous years and other insights. As well as goals for next year.

Arthur, The Stray Dog who joined a Swedish race team and refused to be left behind via:TrendingVideos on YouTube

Adventure racer gives stray dog a meatball, dog follows him to finish line of 430-mile race Arthur is the greatest dog in the world. Published on Nov 23, 2014 Meet Arthur the stray dog who followed an extreme sports team during a grueling 430-mile race through the Amazon rainforest and refused to leave their side until the finish. This is the most extreme version ever of Homeward Bound. A Swedish adventure racing team was stopped for a meal in Ecuador before the final two stages of a 430-mile race through the rainforest when they saw a miserable-looking stray dog. Mikael Lindnord, one of the racers, pitied the thing and tossed the dog a meatball to eat. The dog, who the racers eventually named Arthur, then followed them for the rest of the grueling race, through deep jungle and mud on a 20-mile trek, even swimming alongside the team’s kayaks for one portion. Arthur became the fifth member of the team. He made it to the finish line, then was cleaned up, got his shots, and brought back home to Sweden. The story is almost beyond belief. Before one of the segments of the race – a 36 mile kayak around the coast – organizers warned the team that taking Arthur along posed a risk to his and their safety. They tried to set off without him, but as they left he jumped into the water beside them and started desperately paddling. Lindord, heartbroken by the site of Arthur struggling in the water, picked him up, put him in the kayak and let him stay for the rest of the journey. The gesture prompted a standing ovation and cheers from spectators watching from the banks. The team came in 12th, but Arthur is definitely my MVP for the entire race. After the race was over, Arthur was cleaned up and brought home to Sweden, where we hope he gets some rest before his next big race.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos doesn't shop at Costco!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
