One Sweet Ride & John Beargrease

This Moots is one cool winter ride. I would love to have one myself. Next month this bike and it's owner will be racing towards Nome Alaska across 1,100 miles of frozen Alaska wilderness.

The John Beargrease Sled Dog Race began in Duluth yesterday. It will end in Duluth after nearly 400 miles of racing along the North Shore of Lake Superior. I was up along "The Shore" twenty-five years ago for the first one. I've always had a fascination with sled dogs. They are amazing animals.

Makes me want to get some great big tires for my 1 x 1.

When we lived in TH, some friends of ours put up Susan Butcher while she did the Beargrease. They said she was nice, but she did not appreciate all the time and money spent to support her, the crew, and her dogs for the many days they stayed at their house. Bitch.
