Thanks Crankbrothers!

I hit my eggbeater pedal on a rock at the last WORS race of the summer and broke one of the wings off it. I talked to Crankbrothers (www.crankbrothers.com) and they said to send it back for repair. I expected a bill but instead I received my pedals back, both with new parts in place of the one that broke, without being charged. Thanks Crankbrothers!

Went xc skiing in Elver Park yesterday. Mostly groomed trails. A lot of people were out skiing.

I followed up skiing with the Illustrious Icy Isthmus Poker Run by the Viking Biking Club. Usually these are Mt. Horeb to Blue Mound to Mt. Horeb, but this one was on the east side of Madison. One of the stops was Revolution Cycles for the Art Pedaler 2009. Bike themed art was displayed in the bike shop for the night.http://www.revolutioncycles.net/

Riding to Go Skiing

The chicken man and I loaded up our bikes last night to go skiing at the groomed trails on the golf course. I bought xc skate skis last spring and this was the first time I was able to try them. Skate skiing is really hard! Classic skiing makes sense but this is like trying to learn how to play the drums. I can see the potential though, so I think its going to be worth it. Sorry there are no skiing pics, but it was very dark and we didn't bring any lights.
