Some Love for Chasing Mailboxes
I was checking my blog stats to see how often my mom was visiting the site nowadays and I noticed that I had two people linked here from Chasing Mailboxes, which is a great local bike blog primarily about a kind of cycling that is completely foreign to me: randonneuring. While I write about the nonsense I see during my twelve miles on the bike daily, at Chasing Mailboxes you can read about their
thousand hundred kilometer (kilometre?) weekend rides (also known as brevets, which I believe is also a kind of jaunty hat) through pastoral farmlands and up the sides of mountains. Whereas I sometimes bike down Pennsylvania Avenue, they bike to Pennsylvania! Serious respect. And when they're not doing that, they tackle the hard-hitting bike issues like the difficulties of transporting frosted baked goods. So, in the spirit of scratch-back-ism, I heartily encourage you to check them out.
