Bike Blogs, Cyclocross, Local Bike Store, Mechanical
Heads up that a good friend of mine has kicked off his new biking blog, Gear Driven Cyclist. David and I formed a great relationship (off the bike) while he attended UNCW. I had the privilege of providing leadership coaching for him in his ministry adventures.
A few years ago, David relocated to the Wake Forest, NC area, got hitched, and landed the head mechanic role at the new bike shop, Spoke Cycles, in Wake Forest.
He has already kicked off with a few posts and I am looking forward to keeping up with Gear Driven Cyclist. Take time to add David Townsend to your blogroll/reader.

Biking Events, Cyclocross
Maybe it will be rainy like it is here on the North Carolina coast which will be perfect conditions to watch the live web stream of the 2014 Cyclocross Nationals in Colorado! I used to look forward to the kick off of NFL games, now I get excited to watch bike races…weird!

Bike Clubs, Waccamaw Trailblazers
It’s pretty amazing to be on vacation in another state and spot your friends from another mountain bike club gracing the front pages of the local newspaper! Yep, while vacationing in Myrtle Beach this Thanksgiving, I noticed The Sun News running a front page spread on the recent Stache N Dash cross country race put on by the Waccamaw Trail Blazers!
Just like Wilmington, people do not equate mountain biking with the beach, but WTB breaks this stereotype as they have several fun off road biking trails around these parts.
Congrats to Marshall Brown, friend and president of Waccamaw Trail Blazers, as he leads the club to continued growth each year. I still remember my first call to Marshall a few years ago and him being excited that there were around 3 off-ride riders in his club! My prediction is that WTB will meet the 50 member requirements from SORBA by 2015 no doubt! Can’t wait!
