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?
T-39, similar to the ones I learned to wrench on way back when…
The Whiskey Off Road
(even better than years past- check out epicrides.com)
We set up early Friday and the weekend took off from there…
Craig brought Dingus, the Hammerschmidt-equipped Siren
We worked late into the night…
and earned some time off the feet.
Congrats to WBR-Siren racer Lynda Wallenfels on the decisive win of the women’s 50 Proof, new Siren racer Johanna Healy on the 2nd place finish in the 50 Proof, and to WBR-Siren racer Dave Harris for the 5th place men’s singlespeed finish in the 50 Proof.
Katie clears the airway
Johanna- new to the Siren Team. She took 2nd in the women’s 50 Proof.

Matt gets up with the get down
I was still feeling under the weather and turned in early… missed the pub crawl
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.
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.
