What is Almanzo? Mens Journal says, "What's the toughest challenge in cycling? For weekend riders looking to test their mettle, it just may be gravel grinding, an emerging style of cycling that's done on unpaved, backcountry roads covered in crushed limestone, granite, flint, or whatever rock happens to be around."
Taking Midwestern gravel road racing to new extremes, 100 miles on gravel roads will really make or break you. Captured beautifully by Craig Lindner in black and white.

Love these old Yamaha ads. After the jump, check out some pics from this past weekend. Took the seat and back rest off the XS 400, geek to chic! Now to clean it up, put the seat back on and scout a cool cafe style seat for the future. Almost there...

I swear as a kid I had this exact fabric pattern on a pair of shorts. Granted, they were probably worn out on the underside and elastic-waisted, but hey, this looks familiar. Any way, check out this Sunny Sports Catalina Shirt available over at Self Edge. Wabi-sabi, mate!

We headed out Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning this past weekend for some pond fishing. The weather, despite the heavy rain early Saturday, was great. It's a bit of a trek down to the pond and some trees blew down onto the trail. Nothing a chainsaw couldn't fix.
Huge cumulus clouds bobbed in the sky and a slight, brisk wind rippled the pond water. Yielding at least 3 fish each on Saturday, we called it an afternoon and headed back--you know, to grill some meat on the grill. The next day proved to be even better. You wouldn't know it by the pictures, but we really did catch a few keepers. Hope your weekend was relaxing.
