New logo, new biz cards

I was 2 seconds away from buying new business cards a few weeks ago, but I thought my old logo looked a little dated. I wanted something more simple and professional looking. You know, something sophisticated like me! (right). So I came up with this little circle logo, chopped up to look like “CD”. Matte black finish, spot-UV coating on both sides, and a white “signature box” to jot down misc notes. I think they came out pretty cool 🙂 If you’re lucky enough, maybe you’ll get one of my highly exclusive signed 1 of 500 business cards.

Climbing to new heights

1 more week until the dreaded 100 mile Assault on Mt. Mitchell “event” in S/N Carolina. I knew I had to kick my ass this weekend so I’d have a fighting chance to get to the top of Mt. Mitchell the next. This ride was sort of a last-minute decision, so I couldn’t find any buddies down to pedal next to me on the trek. Just me and my iPod jamming the workout playlist. The route is estimated at 7,000′ in 23 miles. Starting at the bottom where Hwy 39 splits (West Fork) and ending at Dawson Saddle (the highest elevation point on the Angeles Crest Hwy). You can literally start at the top, and not have to pedal at all until the very bottom. Very little flat or downhill sections on the way up. PAIN!
