My New Favorite Bumper Sticker

i speed because i have to poop

The yellow bumper sticker in the middle of the tailgate says, “I speed because I have to poop”

Supplanting my previous favorite bumper sticker, “Honk if you love peace and quiet”, is this gem.

Alpine Odyssey. Team Alchemist throws down with Lance

Ken and Tom at the Alpine Odyssey finish

Ken and Tom went down to Crested Butte today for the Alpine Odyssey, which is a Leadville qualifier, and which recently got some press because a fella named, Lance, decided to enter. They were able to hang in the lead pack for about 6 miles, riding right beside Lance for much of it. According to Ken, he had his game face on, not (Jenn) Dice-style chatty Kathy.  Lance was ready to rumble, but so were the Alchemist boys. Ken finished just over 5 hours and in 14th place. Tom finished around 5:20, and took home 21st. Both were in the top quarter of their divisions.

During the race, Ruth, Grant and Max cruised around town on their bikes, sipped ice cream shakes, and enjoyed the fantastic weather. They did pause from their escapades when a tourist asked to get a photo with them.
