Don't dance near the chemicals!

Punk Rock=DIY.

So last weekend was the high school kids' tour from an undisclosed school in W_____ville. I rode out to the Ord in order to cheer them on and provide some small measure of the heraldry requisite for such a fine entourage.

I just think that's so great. These kids (are in the bicycle maintenance class(!), and many of them had put together their own rigs from the frame up. I just think that's so great) aren't using power meters or elecktrinkal shifters and they don't care how PRO your kit may be, they are just riding their bikes a long damn way and doing it for days.

The 2 brave souls chaperoning this trip are fucking heroes. MS, KB- good looking out. For real, guys. It's one thing to take one's own children on kick-ass adventures, but a whole other higher level thing to agree (knowingly) to the inevitable headaches and hassles of shepherding other people's kids on multi-day journeys to bad-assery. Y'all are making the future.

And, plus- speaking of Punk Rock, what with bike touring on the brain lately, these fine bags from Tauro Leather are worth the looking. I like them.

I wouldn't mind putting stuff in them there bags.

Also worth a look over at [RIVENDELL]...I use the Sackville medium on my back and a Sackville small on my bars, though techincally a rear bag as well. As you were.
