Words That Last - To Spit - Washington Post, 6 May 2013

  • Business Development:  Had a long five year planning meeting today.  Working on some cool presumptions about the future and how we’re going to beat the future to it’s destination.  I rarely get to use the word counterfactual but I did today!
  • Schooled:  I thought I knew what endurance riding was, and then I recalled the bike that Seven Cycles built for Lon Haldeman.  We’ve been working with Lon recently on something but he’s had his Seven for a while.  Lon’s list of accomplishments is hard to comprehend; they include the Double Transcontinental Record of 24-days and 2-hours; this was eventually broken by Bob Breedlove by only 1-day and about 13-hours; that record still stands.  Lon holds the record for the fastest transcontinental tandem ride – with Pete Penseyres for 7-days and 15-hours.  Lon still rides thousands of miles a month.
  • Words:  The Book project in which Seven is involved is moving along, slowly but surely.  Publishing date is up in the air.

  • Product Development:  Working on a limited edition embrocation for Honey Bikes.  Part of the Cross is Boss project.
  • Ride Project:  The Highpoint Ride is getting tighter.  Ride Studio Cafe is limiting the field size; we’ve booked the entire Greylock lodge – and some campgrounds.  We’ve got most of the rest stops determined.  And we’ve been working on the food menu.  Had some debates on what tires would be most appropriate for riders – and what gearing would be ideal.
