CX, Black Sheep Cycles, Cartel and I have fallen

I have been beyond slack I have had tons of ideas and thoughts about what to write..then..life gets in the way.  Actually that is not true..I get lazy..if I could do this without typing I might get to it each day.  I posted my class schedule..THANKS for not showing up to my classes..Where is the love people??  I am a yoga teacher who wants to race cross this season and I need $$$ to register.  If you feel overly guilty I am willing for some random sponsorship ( kidding..or am I?).  I have been riding -but, not as much as I should.  I feel like I can not remember how to do anything when it comes to CX.  I remember how to make the “I think I am going to die/puke face” I remember what everyones kits look like from behind and I remember loving ever minute of finishing.

We have closed the bike shop..Black Sheep Cycles has moved into our house..every morning I wake up to bike bits and pieces and a rooms of frames.  We are still selling goodies but I miss seeing customers and chatting on the phone to suppliers and other bike people.  The day we finished moving out I was crying (full on ugly cry face)..by myself in the car,in traffic and no phone.  I wish I could explain to all of our customers and friends how much we love and appreciate you guys. I miss you guys and I am always up for a coffee or peddling on a bike.  I feel like I have lost all my friends (so sad but so true).  Folks in our neighborhood just don’t enjoy chats on campy or sram….steel or carbon…How much does your wheelset weigh?  Shoot me an email so I can catch up with you guys…

Black Sheep Cartel is still around and under new management!!!! I have taken over the team and I hope it to be built of folks who love to ride.  We want to create a group of people who work and ride well together. Chris Thomas is our KC connection and has been with the team since last year. Alan Wages is the guy who knows what is going on ( on and off the bike) . Pip Gregson (me) is the person who asks and answers questions. We have a few riders for the Cross season and we want to slowly build from there…Questions concerns..just wanna give us love..you know where to find me.

To end on an odd and high note…We no longer have to hear the commercials for “I have fallen and I can’t get up”.  Good thing the bbc posted this sweet new protection from breaking a hip.

I am thinking this would be big during the CX season or at least a night out with Zeke
