Footbike a 5k for a Cause

Here is a shout out to all of you Footbikers who want to be involved in an event,

but think 26 miles is a little crazy.

We are joining the 17th annual 5k run, walk and roll for the Brain Injury Association of Utah.

The event will be held on May 21st at 8 am at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City.

Registration is only $20 before May 9th and then the price goes up to $25.

You can register online at

I will be riding with Chris and two of my boys to support Charlie our little 4 year old neighbor who experienced a brain injury 3 years ago.

Salt Lake City Marathon 2011

Another great event behind us. We had 5 kickers total for the 25 mile tour. We started out in a rain storm (yuck), but then the weather cleared and the streets dried out and we had a lovely morning kick. One T and The Cannibal finished in 1:28, Super Sonic had a time of 1:37, X finished around 1:40 and Larene who was a first timer finish at 2:04.
I don't have any pics yet, but if I can get some I will upload.

20" wheel is faster.

After some feild research... I think I have determined that the larger rear wheel does increase my overall speed and it takes less effort to maintain higher speeds. I haven't done enough on the hills yet to decide how much that will slow me down. Maybe after the 3" of new snow melt I can get back out and find out.
