FGOB – Bibs that Fit Me! Louis Garneau

OK, a bit ago I informed you that the tight ass cycling gear was a necessity. Hopefully you are already sold on that. If not, grab a pair and give it a try. Like I said, I recommend bibs over regular shorts, especially if you have a gut like I do. It's just much more...

KoS Strava Group – Shhhh Let Me Have My Moment!

I snagged this picture a while back but forgot to post it. I had a pretty good ride week back in September and it was around the same time I saw an invite to join the Knights of Sufferlandria Strava group. Obviously I jumped right in to claim my rightful place. I...

My 2016 Tour of Sufferlandria Results

Another tour has come and gone. This is my second Tour of Sufferlandria. It is the Greatest Grand Tour of a Mythical Nation Ever!! Seriously, it's a bit crazy though. Last year I was just getting into riding indoors when my friend Tyler introduced me to The Sufferfest...

The 2016 Tour of Sufferlandria Starts …. Now!

The Tour of Sufferlandria (ToS) was the indoor cycling event that got it all started for me last year. A 9 stage, 9 day indoor cycling suffer extravaganza billed as the Greatest Grand Tour of a Mythical Nation. I trained for it, I rode it, and it led to me...

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria – Stage 8

2015 Tour of Sufferlandria – Stage 8

I can't believe I survived to be typing this post. I did not watch any of the three videos in today's stage ahead of time. So I had no way to know that this stage of the tour was all about sprinting. The first video had sprint intervals and they were tough, then I...

3000 Miles and Counting…

3000 Miles and Counting…

I've gotta say, I'm definitely enjoying my indoor cycling trainer. I picked up the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine 2 about a month ago. I'm still not extremely excited about indoor training, but I'm happy to have my season extended into the crappy weather. Cycling is one of...

DJ Odawa – Reconstruction Volume III

I admit it, I haven't been posting nearly enough music on here! Especially lacking is the quality music that comes out of The Voodoo Empire. Well, let's fix that, Cyrus recently posted a mix up on his own site, djodawa.com. I thought it best to cross-pollinate a...

Cool Critters

A while back, Ankhj and I went to the art exhibit thingie in downtown Toledo to check out what was happening. One of the buildings was full of handmade stuff and we fell in love with a booth full of handmade stuffed monsters. I promised the girl I'd mention her on my...

Last night was a killer ride. The temperature was …

Last night was a killer ride. The temperature was amazing and it just fel super nice out. I only had time to do 30 miles and still barely made it back before dark. I hate riding in the dark on the crappy Toledo roads. I'd love to keep riding in those exact conditions,...

Simple Little Test Post

Just did a good deal of reconfiguring of the backend here on my personal site. I'd like to roll the changes out across the Empire, so I need to write a post here first to test everything. Cheers!

Another New Palette – Turkeys!

I love being able to swap out colour schemes in seconds! Definitely one of the cooler features of my theme here. Out with the Hallowe'en colour scheme (that was hard to read) and on to a turkey inspired theme! I'll probably keep this one in place until December, then...

Hallowe’en Scheme

Thanks to the ease with which I can completely change my colours on this site, I decided to cruise around kuler to find some Hallowe'en inspiration. I found a lovely combination called All Hallows Eve, which I decided to run on here for a while - it'd fun to be...

Deactivated Jetpack Comments

Well, I tried a little experiment, with using the new commenting system that comes with Jetpack. It did not go well. Replies wouldn't attach to their comments, comments wouldn't work, load times were bad, and many times folks just couldn't comment. We will go back to...
