2005 Hell Week Texas

Hell Week is an eight-day cycling vacation held in varioius prime cycling destinations across the U.S. It's produced by Nick and Becky Gerlich, two great people and fellow solo RAAM finishers. The original Hell Week celebrated its 15th anniversary this year and we were there to join in the fun. Held in the Texas Hill Country and based in Fredericksburg, just one hour outside San Antonio, it's a week of spectacular cycling on very quiet roads. There's lots to do off the bike as well, so much that we would have enjoyed the week even without our bikes! (But we're sure glad we got in over 400 quality miles and met, or reconnected with, some really wonderful cycling folks!) Three captioned slideshows.

2005 Cirque du Cyclisme, Greensboro, North Carolina

My hat is off to Dale Brown of Cycles de Oro for organizing and hosting this three day celebration of vintage and classical bicycles. I had an absolute blast at this wonderful event. The camaraderie was incredible, the rides fun, the bicycles beautiful, and so much more. Six slideshows!
