Singletrack Celebrates #5/Armstrong & Andretti at Indy

To say I've been a little lax here is an understatement. Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. That, and truth be told, when the nice weather finally hit this weekend I took some time to read a book on the porch. Not a great book, but still...outside, reading a book. Anyone who lives in New England knows that this might not be possible until at least mid-June some years due to cold weather (or snow), but warm temps arrived this weekend. Woo-hoo!

Here are a couple of things I've noticed in the last few days, though:

Chipps and team over at Singletrack are celebrating the magazine's 5th year. Congrats to them!!! It seems like only last year I was not-so-patiently waiting for the next issue to arrive in the post (anyone who knows me knows patience isn't my strongest suit). Now they come regularly and have some of the best photography anywhere. I look forward to every single issue. If you are a cyclist, or if you just enjoy breath-taking photography, you need to pick up an issue. I know in the US they are carried at Barnes & Noble so issues are easy to find now.

The Singletrack crew is celebrating in multi-media style. Carlton over at BikeBiz.com is reporting that now, not only can you listen to Singletrack podcasts, you can advertise on them as well. And, if that isn't enough, they have started a blog! Check it out at http://blog.singletrackworld.com They always have something fun going on over there. Happy 5th Anniversary Singletrack! (note: blogger is acting up and I can't hyperlink in a normal way to this link...grrrr)

Lance Armstrong drove the pace car at the Indianapolis 500. LiveStrong shirt and all. That had to have been fun. But 19-year old Marco Andretti nearly stole the show from everyone. The Andretti legacy lives on in that talented kid.

Just some cycling related tidbits for today. Thanks for stopping by.
