Had a great late night photo shoot for a Seven Cycles project this evening.  The images are going to be memorable.  Of course, I took photos of the photo-taking.

I got to work on the Rasputitsa winners’ jersey for Honey Bikes.  Just got them back in time for the race this weekend.  This has been a great project with the awesome team at Rasputitsa and Dirty 40.  It’s going to be a great ride this weekend!

It’s Tumblr time.  I’ll be tracking my rides in New Zealand.

Project:  New Zealand Traverse

If I can get my phone to work properly in the opposite Coriolis effect I’ll be posting to the Tumblr for a week – in real-time.

Thanks to Seven Cycles, Ride Studio Cafe, and Honey Bikes for letting me sneak out for a week.  They won’t even notice that I’m gone.
