List of Stuff and Things to Join!

Hey Readers,

Some of this is local oriented, but it should be interesting for all. Just look at the photos if you are not interested. So here goes:

1. Should be in Denver for the North American Handbuild Bike Show, NAHBS next weekend. Hoping for some blog gold resulting, maybe some brief interviews if I get media credentials. If you see me say hi, I will have some TSBC pins for give away and trade...

2. Speaking of pins, the Tarik Saleh Bike Club is loaded with pins again, now would be a good time to join! tariksaleh.com/tsbc, I got some good ideas for future TSBC stuff, but need to get some pins moving...

3. Hey! Did you know the South West Nordic Ski Club is a non profit and you can claim tax deductions on your membership AND your donation? Did you know we finally got permission to groom into the caldera portion of the Canada Bonita? And it is groomed right now? Electronic (and traditional) donation available at http://swnordicski.org/. If you live in town and use the trails, please join up and consider donating to support our spectacular trails and volunteer groomers. If you don't live in town, we are still a 501C3 non profit and we welcome any donations!

4. Speaking of Beer, Los Alamos has a beer co-op happening, they are having a membership drive - Los Alamos Beer Co-op - I finally got off my butt and threw in for a lifetime membership. I think this is the kind of thing that we need in town to make it livable. So local peeps, please consider it!

Ooof, in town trails are in great shape but disturbingly devoid of snow for Feb. Dammit.
I find your lack of snow to be disturbing

5. Speaking of Trails, our sweet trails are one reason everyone who moves here stays. Consider joining IMBA which is an international non-profit trail organization. http://www.imba.com/. Membership includes membership in your local IMBA club, Los Alamos Singletrack Association for Los Alamos people, you may have your own elsewhere. IMBA does great work on creating and maintaining trails and access for mountainbikers and all trail users. I have been a member for 10+ years now, and have seen great things from the organization all over the country. The IMBA and LASA crew has recently been involved (with the county, forest service and other stakeholders) in both post-fire trail reparation and in some significant plans for improvements and sustainability of our awesome trails. So join them too. If you want...

Well that is pretty much it, hope to meet some of you and see old friends at NAHBS, I will be back next week with some race reports, including where I finally win a race, and the week after that with some NAHBS goodies.

Hey TS - hope to see you at NAHBS next weekend! We'll be wrangling the kids, so schedules hard to hold. We'll look for someone who looks like you and be sure to wear a club pin...

I'll be there on Friday then heading north for x-c skiing.

I like gratuitous burrito shots. And burritos in general. Could we have a club of that? Or maybe the "burrito of the month" could be an added feature to TSBC. I'd love to get one in my P.O. Box every month! ;-)

As a Denverite, I'll be here and will be proud to buy my new club's eponymous leader a beer. I'll send you my number through email. I probably have some Denver B-cycle stuff for trade, too. Nick and/or Cass, the world travelers wintering in NM may be here as well.

Nordic, Jeff, Andy! Yep, hope to see you all there. We should be leaving thursday evening, but I am bit concerned with the weather and may end up driving up Friday morning. Email me off line if you want my number and we can hook up. I believe I will be at the show Friday and Sunday and at the Rene Herse Anti-show thing sat night. I am planning on heading out to leadville for an XC ski race really early saturday morning from denver.

Adventure! I can't imagine that they ship well, but I have hand carried them to San Francisco before. So I can probably get one or two to portland for you when/if I get back there.
