The 2013 Florida Challenge was an absolute blast! Lots of friendly bent folks and all kinds of really COOL bents were on hand for chapter one of the event, held on the Brian Piccolo Park road course, this past Saturday, February 23. (I didn’t get to make the 2nd part on Sunday; which was held on the Velodrom track. And NO, I didn’t place anywhere in the top 5 and NO, I’m not bothered by that either; I was there to have fun… Yea RIGHT! I even got beat by one of my blog followers! BUT out of all the COOL good people and happenings, the photo above, clearly is the STAMP of the BEST part of this event! These two little Darlings battled it out and did an absolute superb job on the track and racing too! They both lasted the entire 20 minute race and never looked like they were the slightest bit tired! Unlike EZ Geezer, that was seriously looking for an AED, after that event… For more photos and results, check out the following BROL link: HPRA Florida, Feb 23-4 2013
Some really GREAT times, stories and photos to be seen! 2 Young female participants STEAL the show! More details soon! Update 1 – 11:29AM– Yesterdays results! EZ Biker aka Kenneth Evans
WELL, I was planning on actually doing 2 bike events this weekend, BUT… my bank account says NO NO NO! So I’ll do the race thing Saturday $20.00; I can afford that and wish all my fellow cyclists a GREAT ride at the 4th Annual Tour De Broward! This event has reportedly attracted as much as 5000 riders and you can enjoy nice long stretches of road out in West Broward. This is an event, I hope I can do next year… Yea, how many times have you heard THAT?
I don’t know if anyone else has ever had to deal with this; of being awakened during the night, with that piercing BEEEEP BEEEP sound from your trusty battery backup unit. GRRR! OK, so lets try and find a SILENT battery backup? Sure they are available for a few extra… $$$…
Here is why I will not be riding on A1A this Sunday! Update! Here is a pdf map of the course, for anyone that may be around the area.
WELL, once again, it’s THAT time of the year again, when I really wish I was doing the BEST event I have ever done, Sebring! However… check out the predicted temperatures above and… It’s going to be a rather CHILLY ride! The fun will be starting tomorrow morning at 6 AM!!!
You know I’m at a complete LOSS, when it comes to those OPULANT Floating navel palaces! DREMEY cruises that cater to your every BLING desire… until… PSSSSSS, there goes the ships engine! Carnival Triumph cruise ship adrift; long lines for toilets, food… Now, that Pleasure palace becomes nothing more than a floating cesspool toilet, leaving it’s poor passengers to endure overflowing toilets, little, no food or skanky cold edibles, no air condition; the list goes on!
Now you would think, as much $$$ as it costs to build these porcelain… er floating palaces, there would be some sort of emergency (Redundant) backup power and systems overall! And what about all these fancy electronics and the capability of getting rescue ships and or supplies out to a stricken ship? I think every cruse line ship should be required to have backup system and should be certified, to be able to even sail in US waters! THIS is totally UNACCEPTIABLE!
