November 2009


Beginning this afternoon (Friday) the yearly Jingle Cross Rock cyclocross race will kick off.  Our humble shop will be sponsoring the Women’s Beginner category.  All racers registered for that event will be entered into a drawing for this:

The Masi CXR frameset!  Ooh la la!!

Events continue all day tomorrow and Sunday.  Steve will be out there racing, too, so consider it your chance to heckle him!  Even if you don’t race, it’s a fine time to hang out in the precious sunshine and beautifying mud.  Bring your muck boots, and we’ll see you there!

For those who will be biking out to the Johnson County Fairgrounds, the McCollister Bridge is now open, connecting South Gilbert Street over the river to Old 218.  It’s a lovely ride, if I may say so myself.

Thanks to all the folks who gave kind feedback and encouragement about the previously posted Tales of Woe & Conquest of the Bicycle Commuter.  A few people told me they look forward to seeing the next five pages, and, well, that’s where I was perhaps unclear.  That comic is over.  The end.  Sorry.  It was a ten-panel comic, not a ten-page comic.

Anyway, because I feel a bit lame for leading good people on, I thought I should mention that I do still make comics.  They’re similarly autobiographical, and I sell small, staple-bound copies for $1 a pop.  If you’re really a fan, I also have a few handbound (i.e. hand-sewn) anthologies for $40 from a limited run of 27.

L-t-R: Awkwardly Put #11 zine for $1 and the big ol’ anthology for $40

I may consider posting the occasional page from my zine on this here blog, but, trust me, it makes more sense when it’s read together, like a journal.

Whoa, blast from the past!  This is a short comic I did way back in 2005, at the tender age of 27.  It’s a total of ten panels, so here we go, two panels each day this work week.
