Interview on

Wow! I don't think I've ever had anything like this published about me at any time. I've written some pieces that have been published in magazines, but nothing about me. It's kind of an odd feeling reading something that is about you. But I think I can live with it. Read the interview on Thanks, Gary!

And knowing that an image of Ross Shafer sans helmet might bring out the helmet police, in all fairness, he simply forgot his helmet. We were riding out Chileno Valley Road when Ross looked down at his shadow and said something to the effect of, but probably more profane, "oh crap, I forgot my helmet." We also got to play cowboy that day when we came across a calf on the road and proceeded to herd it back into its pasture, our cleats click-clacking along the roadway. Fun day. Thanks again for the ride, guys!

Oh, and that limited edition titanium Salsa pictures is actually owned by my friend Noah.

(What's playing: Matt Curreri & The Exfriends I'll Be Here from a CD that, coincidentally, Chuck Hoeffer from PCC sent to me this week. From Chuck's note, Matt is a customer of Chuck's and says he's a "super nice guy." Which reminds me, I've got to call Chuck today.)
