Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Trans Andes Challenge

Escape to the Andes, race 250 Miles, riding thru volcanoes and mountain passes. What a great epic race, although who really does this race? Corporate sponsorship is a must along with a reliable mix of "do it all" racers. Required, Racers who can work on bikes, speak multiple languages, and problem solve using surrounding resources. Whoa, wait a minute. This sounds like just the right race for "The Professor" on Gilligan's Island.

Flat tire no problem, a concoction of Maqui Berries, banana leaves and volcano pumice and your are ready to race! Broken carbon frame, no problem, there's got to be some Chilean bamboo laying around.

Who does this race? The field is limited to 200 teams. There are registered racers from 5 continents and 13 countries present. According to the website the early bird special registration is closed. The first 20 teams get a 15% discount. Any takers (So how do I tell my wife)?
