My Space

No. Not a blog post about a dead social media site. (Oh! Sorry! MySpace is still operational?!? Why?!?)

No. Just a chance to show off a room in the house. We've been here for 6 mos. and finally got around to decorating it and moving some boxes that were in there into the storage room.

So, as you know, I've kind of gotten a little obsessive about cycling. (No, I'm not apologizing for it!). And over the last 3 years I've collected a few posters. That have sat in the tubes and flats they were mailed in.

This weekend a chain arts & crafts store had their poster frames on sale. So, I (finally) spent the money to get the frames. Got home, unpacked the prints, and put them in.

Finally, I cleaned out the room and hung the prints. What do you think?

Vive Le Tour - set of three prints by Adam Turman (  He is an artist out of the Twin Cities and has a lot of great work, not all of it cycling related.  These were a Christmas gift from the kids.

These two prints represent my commitment to LIVESTRONG.  The print on the left is by Shepard Fairey (of the Obama HOPE poster fame).  This was something I received from the Foundation for being one of the top three fundraisers for the RAGBRAI TeamLIVESTRONG in 2010.  The print on the right is by Austin, TX artist Bobby Dix, available on ETSY under the name Kollective Fusion.  He also some some real cool non-cycling posters as well (BACON!)

RAGBRAI posters from 2010 and 2012, the two years that I completed the whole route.  I did save space on the wall for the 2013 poster, as I am planning or riding all week again this year.  (Registered and, yes, doing my fundraising for LIVESTRONG already - help me reach my goal.)
And yes, that's my bike up on the trainer. I have tried to ride some this winter.

Update: 4/19 - Just ordered these two prints from Mark Fairhurst.  Can't wait to get them!

Ahh, the Spring Classics.  Where bike racers ride across the ancient cobbled roads of northern Europe.
This one reminds me of both LeTour as well as (surprise!) RAGBRAI.
