Craig visits AZ, Whiskey Off Road, lotsa photos

Photo Dump.

Craig from World Bicycle Relief came out to soak up some sun and hang in the shop… just in time for me to get sick with some sort of allergy-triggered respiratory funk.

Among other things, we went to the Pima Air & Space Museum

C-141. I think the stinger on the tail is the UHF antenna?

Post-Whiskey Shred Fest

We went back to Tucson to ride… which afforded a little more recovery time for the pub-crawlers… I was still feeling under the weather and a chance to reunite with my forgotten bike shoes.

Bug Spring

Me, catastrophic valve-stem failure #002 for the ride. (tubes, not my beloved NoTubes setup)

How’d you like that descent, Craig?

Jokes about Dan’s missed career as a shop teacher never get old.
