Where'd the spring go? Apparently winter has returned in Ithaca and its been snowing, but seriously. Its almost May!
Sylvie's headed to Seattle in 12 days. Thomas and Vince are coming up on May 18th after Pitzer Graduation. Ok, well that's all pretty boring.
Want better news?? We have another sponsor! Ithaca Water Buffalo.
They are hooking us up with pre trip milk, cheese, disposal repair and stickers. All very necessary for a successful bike tour, doncha know?

Other than that, here's another shout out to Scott Sports for our snazzy helmets and gloves, soon to be on our heads and hands all over this blog.
Keen, and Jennifer in particular, we're crazy about our socks and shoes, best looking feet on the west coast!
Sock Guy, Emerg-n-c, Clifbar, we have yet to test these products in action, but we're are excited to see where this romance goes.

Gear's here!

We promised to share in the fun and show off our lets get right down to it!

SAFETY FIRST! Check out this sweet bell? errwons gunna know when we're coming!
Oddly enough my bike at home looks an awful lot like the bike that i'll be touring with which awaits me in Seattle. Although I don't plan to bring the snazzzzzzy handlebar tape on the ride.

Behind door number two you will see my thigh modeling a key chain with a shoe on its. Also pretty nifty, eh?

And of course I saved the best for last. That's my leg and bike cog/chain belt buckle, because I'm a dork and I'm not afraid to admit it and those are the shoes that I plan to spend 1/5 of my time in on the bike trip. 3/5 will be spent in bike shoes and if I have this math thing correct the last 1/5 will be spent barefoot. Actually maybe even more barefoot time if we are counting sleeping as a time with shoe wearing potential.
