    I do feel badly for the tandem captains because no matter what happened the stokers will blame them, especially if the stoker is a spouse.

    New cycling movie coming out. Looks pretty entertaining.

    I spent last week in Sunriver right near Bend, Oregon, site of the second annual CUF/CS organized bike ride.

    It brought back some great memories, as we drove along a good chunk of our route throughout the week. The long climb up to bachelor. The fast descent down to the cascade lakes region. The roadside rest stop with hidden ice chests arranged by HFNW and carried out by his people. The spot where I bonked and came to a screeching stop on the last climb back up to bachelor. The rocking descent back into bend with the whole group pacelining at 30-40 mph for much of the last 23 miles. Such a great ride!

    I took my 16 year old son up to mount bachelor on the third to check out the downhill mountain biking course. Hey still have a ton of snow up top, and the resort actually opened one lift for skiing and boarding for three days this week. This also meant half of the downhill course was closed due to the snow.

    But we decided to do it anyway, renting bikes and all of the gear for the day. I've done a fair amount of cross country mtn biking, but very little downhilling like this, aside from the awesome tyrolian descent with mtnbiker and bigpiney ay CUF Tahoe ride #1. Had a complete blast. My son took a couple of spills, but nothing more than scrapes and bruises.

    It was also my first time riding a full suspension bike. I loved it for descending, as it was very smooth and flowed well over the jumps and obstacles. I didn't care for it for climbing and riding cross country. Felt like too much energy was lost during each peddle stroke through the rear suspension.
