Spring Rides/Bike Tours

The time for riding has begun in the Shenandoah Valley.  With daylight savings giving us another hour of afternoon light and the gift (though perhaps a curse on the long-term) of extremely warm early temperatures, it's been great to get out on the bike.  The Big Dummy is still my favorite bike to take out when I'm home.  Even when it's empty, I like tooling around on the monster frame. 

This year's bike tour might look a little different than our first three.  We practically booked ourselves right out of a traditional tour because piecing two weekends together in close proximity to each other is already an impossibility.  But we're planning to take our rides public and instead of a sustained tour, we want to ride with YOU on a few chosen dates throughout the summer and fall.  Stay tuned for more on that.


New Bike and New Album! Best Way to Deliver Vinyl...

So, a lot happened over winter.  I bought the Surly Big Dummy, cementing my complete dedication to the long-tail life, and we finished our new album, "Lay Down Lay Low".  It is available as of March 2012 on CD, digital, and vinyl.  This picture is the first delivery of 25 records to our distributor.  It's good in so many ways!  Get your vinyl with digital download now at
