Alleycat and Marcus Cook

good times for sure... great getting together with friends
old and new
surprised Larry aka LA Law was not racing

Brandon in town from New York
Brandon had a book of cycling images
there he is with Bruce Buckley the background
makes me think about my need to do something with my archives of images

Bruce did not have his best race... Bruce made some tactical errors... not Bruce's usual style

Chocolate City Cycling ROCKED IT!

NYC Messenger Austin Horse was in town for the Triple Crown
good dude... amazing cyclist

Kevin made a pass through the park... although he opted not to race

Morgan Scored High and Ended Up Winning the Series for the Men

Paul was supporting the event by taking some stellar shots.. as usual

Peter aka Suave was a tour guide for a pack of racers

proceeds from this event went to the COURIER EMERGENCY MEDICAL FUND
this is Rico
decades ago Rico suffered a serious head trauma as a bicycle messenger here in DC
glad to see him out and about
sad that he did not recover to 100%
stoked that his injuries were not worse and he recovered as well as he did


Michael Daily was in town for the event
here he was handing out flyers for his Philly Event

more photos to be dropped onto the Gwadzilla Facebook Page


ROAD RAGE... I have got it! RED BULL ROAD RAGE minus the taurine

I admit it...
I have road rage...
the way people drive irks me...
beyond irks me... it pisses me off

the cell phone usage
the texting and the yammering
all of it
put the phone in your purse...  yes sir... your purse

yesterday I was driving my younger son to soccer practice
it is a hectic affair
I rush out of work on my bike... get home... change clothes... grab the dog... get in my car... cross town and grab my son

at my son's "other" house I am appalled by the driving styles of the cars speeding up and down the 2000 Block of Park Road
the road has bike lanes... bike lanes that were put there after I hosted a series of community meetings and pushed the powers that be to slap some white strips on this heavily trafficked bicycle route into Rock Creek Park

Green Crocodile... if found... please return to its owner..

Hi neighbors, 

My bike was just stolen in an unfortunate accident, from 18 and Irving. It is a burgundy Liv Alight women's bike. If you see it, can you text me at 202.320.6225 ( long shot, I know). On that bike, however, was a memorabilia that was important to me.. a green crocodile shaped rubber horn. The thieves probably tossed it immediately somewhere in a trash bin in an alley. If you see it in your trash bin, can you please let me know? It would make me really happy. Yes, I did make a police report. 

thank you!
