Poseurs at the starting line, SSWC09

Me and Jacquie

With a thousand overamped and costumed riders jabbering away (plus my galloping deafness), I can’t believe I actually caught Tarik Saleh’s name–he’s a fellow bloggist on “Veloquent” blog. His Flickr name is “Target Salad” and his site features the hectic start of the epic “Group Ride”/race/mass hysteria which was the Singlespeed World Championship…this beard is my tribute to the great Sheldon Brown, patron saint of cyclists everywhere.

  1. Hi Jacquie,
    Was lovely meeting you at SS champs. Loved the beard! Now back home at the desk at work, in NZ and it all seems like a dream. Thanks to you and Durango of an amazing few days – hope you can come out to NZ for our champs.
    Cheers Vicki Butterworth aka Amelia Erhart 🙂

  2. Hey Jacquie, It was a pleasant surprise to see you coalesce next to me at the start and great to meet you again. I think we met at the marin fat tire festival in 1995 or so, but I barely remember it, nor do I have photographs. Anyhow, thanks for posting the photo, and talk to you soon, maybe!

  3. J — just read your chat with Jan H. in my new Bicycle Quarterly. Now I read about your adventures in Durango and I am both happy for you and envious of you. As I prepare for my first-ever ‘cross race — on a singlespeed mountain bike, no less — I think often of you and am inspired. I will wear bright pink socks in your honor on October 4.
    Hugs –Beth

  4. Hi Jacquie! Great posts, and a great Bicycle Quarterly! I just got it, read the middle part of the Charlie Cunningham interview and now I have to go to work. Congratulations on everything! That picture of Charlie in his shop made me go “wow!” three times in a row. Awesome photo.
    All the best,
