Current events

So I have not been posting on here lately. Life has become busier while trying to train for the tour. I am riding no less than 30 miles a day with 3 or 4 very long days during a week. The weather is getting warmer and Polar Bear season is winding down so I have to find something to replace that.
The bike is slowly getting together. The racks should be painted soon, and the logos will be on the bike in the next two weeks.
Mike at is going to waterjet some really nice Exercise Compassion logos and Carrion Cycles logos for us to put on the top and down tubes. once that is complete we can stain and spray the bike, yes STAIN!
I am an official member of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club and must say thanks to all the great people who feel like family there. All the hardcore polar bear kids must thank Eric Weiss for the peer pressure to swim in freezing water.
We had our first international Polar Bear swim with a visit from the Chinese Winter Swimmers. Check out some of the photos here:

Raw Vegan

So I've been completely raw for 2 months now. It's been great and I feel great. I have been dabbling in fruititarian, raw, macro, and all those things we crazy vegans do, off and on for over 15 years. Now I feel pretty well settled in the raw diet routine. Does anyone out their have any raw recipes to share? Advice on raw diets on the road would be great too.

Best show Ever?

My favorite shows range from Into Another playing all night long at Saratoga Winners in Albany,NY with no other band due to a blizzard, to the crazy antics (and politics) of Ted Nugent. So my musical taste has no limits. Last night adds to the list of greatest shows. Six bands can bore anyone to the point of walking out, last night the 6 bands were very different!
See for yourself:
Pulling Teeth
Rise And Fall
Genghis Tron
Converge (and they played The Saddest Day)

By the way Pulling Teeth will be playing the Day Of Suffering show!

Eco photographer?

Russ Roca the "Eco-Friendly photographer has a clip on You Tube that shows him riding his bike and trailer to a fast food drive thru. I hope he ordered a salad. Otherwise he negated his use of a bike to transport his photo gear to all of his photo sessions.
I haven't posted in a while. Hopefully that will change soon!
