Progress on our 2009 kit design

Last night Tyler, Hunter, Charlie and I worked into the wee hours of the night on a possibly design for our 2009 jerseys. Right now, we are torn between two styles: tartan and mondrian.

Both seem very promising, and will guarantee a cooler style than Penn's designs. Stay tuned for an upcoming email by us or an update on here!

RPM is moving forward (not literally)

Trying to keep this as updated as possible (as you can tell), I wanted to give everyone an update on how RPM is going. With Charlie, Joe, and Tyler as coaches, it seems like everything is going off without a hitch. Everyone has gotten their initial testing done, attendance is high, and everyone is coming downstairs to the mechanics happy but exhausted afterward. There has been reports that Penn's president, Lenny, has recently given it his all quite fully. From what I hear, Mr. Klipper had spewed the remnants of his stomach contents onto Breakaway's hardwood floor, as well as another poor Penn soul. But hey, that hasn't been the first time!

Ride on!

Temple Cycling is goin' global!

That's right. Other than Phil Forrest's recent residence in the Middle East and Robin Tsukada in Japan, Marita McCormick has recently flew back from Rimini, Italy were she competed in the ITU World Duathlon Championships. Her overall time clocked in at 2 hours, 45 minutes, and 32 seconds.

Marita is the leader of a local triathlon club called T3:
If you see Marita blow past you on the trail, try to keep up!

This weekend's events

This can be you!

Our shop is holding a cyclocross race in nearby New Jersey. Registration closes tonight at midnight, but you can always head there to spectate as well. As of now, nobody has mentioned carpooling to watch it, so feel free to mention it on the listserv if you are going. It should be filled with fun, high-speed dirt crashes, lots of people, and some cycling. Here is some info on it:

T-Wrecks is looking for riding partners

Aside from his Dungeons and Dragons crew, Tyler is looking for some riding partners for the upcoming season. He tends to ride in the evenings during bad weather conditions. This is an example of Tyler on the average day as he thinks of possible riding partners:

If you are interested in riding with this character, send him an email at . He is waiting for you with some peeps of his D&D crew who also happen to ride coincidentally:

Swap Meet on 10/11/08

So far these are the people who have replied with interest in going to the Swap Meet at the Velodrome next Saturday (the 11th):

Charlie (Pending Babysitter)

Brenton and Trevor have cars and are able to drive.
Meet at the TECH center at a time TBA. (what do you guys think?)

I cannot go like I had previously planned, so does anyone want to try and sell some Temple Cycling t-shirts for me?


PS. If you want a Temple Cycling t-shirt, email me!
They're only $10! You know you want one!
