Not for the faint of heart

This video has been around for a while.

***PLEASE DO NOT WATCH IT IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WATCHING SOMEONE GET HURT.***

But, I have to say, this is karma. Instant karma.
Don't mess with the cyclists.

Public Transit

It is coming upon the time of year when we prove how (wo)manly we are. Snow and rain and cold and dampness.

With this, Google has announced a new search feature that should let a few of us avoid the car for a few more months, if not for the whole winter. It is called Google Transit: http://www.google.com/transit.

Basically, you can put in your starting and ending location and it will tell you how to take the bus or walk. The key here is that it will be even faster if you ride your bike instead of walking, then load your bike up on the front or underneath the bus.

We tried a search for Denver to Nederland (which is an amazing place to ride bicycles). (When you get up there, check out the caboose by the bus station. Cool Bike Shop/ Coffee Shop. )

Try it out. Take the bus. Take your bike.

Corn Maze

This has nothing to do with bikes. It has to do with fun though, so there!

Several of us went to Anderson Farm's "Terror in the Corn" last night. Between feeding the goats, hot apple cider and riding in the barrel train we lost track of time. It was $10 to get in and a quarter to feed the goats. It was $1.50 for the cider and $3.50 for the pie. It was terribly fun.

So, I am giving them a plug because everyone needs to go do this. Bring friends who you wouldn't mind meeting in a dark field of old corn. Because when you go out into the tremendously monotonous, yet creepy maze, you will prefer to know that someone will find you when you are lost. And chances are you will not be scared of them.

Here is the link: http://www.terrorinthecorn.com

It is open until November 1st. Don't be bummed that you missed it. Just find a group of friends and go. You will have a blast.
