I learned at a meeting tonight that Rover's Run trail will be closed. Not "we recommend you don't use this trail," but "we're serious, don't use this trail. If you do, it's trespassing. If we catch you, we'll give you a ticket." It should be announced tomorrow. By the mayor.

So, folks, that's the latest in the saga that is Summer '08. The cold summer. The bear summer. The high gas prices summer. The injured friends summer.

Kevin and Jon on the field.

Good things about this summer: I got to work with a great crew at the shop. Singletrack Advocates is building 8.5 miles of luscious singletrack right here in Anchorage. We started playing bike polo. I learned about Flight of the Conchords. There's still more summer to enjoy. I think on Wednesday, I'll ride with the Dirt Divas. I want to go mountain biking. Oh yeah, that's it.

I love Flight of the Conchords! Their lyrics are so funny. one of my favorite episode is called "The Drive-by". Can't wait for the new season.

Have never seen the show (no cable), but love Business Time (& others). Two guys at the shop were singing it one day and now it's becoming a summer theme song. Very clever guys.
