10 from Austin: Doughnuts at Gourdough’s, the walk from South Congress to dinner at La Condesa, looking out at the South 1st st bridge, country music at The White Horse, one of the many modern homes I loved.
While I was in Austin, we drove the hour and a half out to Snow’s BBQ in Lexington, Texas. If you haven’t hears of Snow’s read the New Yorker piece and if you are in Austin make sure you make the drive out there.
Good times hanging out with my niece in Cleveland last weekend.
Riding up the coast of California from Santa Cruz, Deux North’s 8 riders test a new bike built for every kind of road. After 2 days and 200 miles, the group meets the story’s narrator, El Chapulin (The Grasshopper) to listen to his story, tell their own, and compete in an event that he created over 15 years ago. On the final day. the 100-mile Grasshopper Adventure Series race serves as the finish line for Deux North’s Hunt 4.
So proud to be able to continue to tell these kinds of stories, thank you to my partners in this Dylan and Aaron (they actually did 99% of the work) and to Specialized and especially Chris, who believed from the beginning that we could bring this bike to life. Hope this is a reminder to everyone that the fun stuff happens when you get off the main road.
