    Hi bike friends!
    I am in the process of putting out my first documentary comic book and I could use your advice.
    The book is about the Race to Alaska, a non-motorized boat race that starts in Port Townsend Washington and goes up the inside passage to Ketchikan, Alaska. It's a really crazy race that pits stand up paddle boarders against carbon racing yachts.

    I'm coming to the UK at the beginning of May and would love to bring some copies and maybe have a little event. I'll be in both London and in Leeds. Can you imagine a boat club or adventure group that would love to host a talk and a book signing? There are some elements of cycling, but it's all adapted weird old bikes turned into a boat pedal drive, and probably not that exciting to the LMNH crowd.

    Also, if a comic book about boats sounds like your jam you can preorder it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nha­tttnichols/boats-bears-and-bad-ideas-the­-race-to-alaska

    Thanks for any advice, and if you just want to have a drink and a catch-up while I'm in town let me know! I'm down for rides and beers too.

    I just bought a pair of Patagonia ones under a time crunch (pro deal) and then read the reviews. Looks like it's not for sprinter legs either. I'll see how they fit when they get here, but maybe I should check out the Dakine ones. I don't like the look of ones that are super baggy, but I also need to be able to ride up a hill without loosing blood flow.

    Hmm, I've been hoping for something less commutery, but you're right. When I had a pair of those they fit really well in the legs.

    I am sure there is basically no chance you still have this, but if you do I would love it. I'm a tall human that is constantly trying to commute in jackets that don't let me reach my bars.

    So, I have a little mtb bike shorts problem. I need mountain bike shorts, but I have the legs of a track cycler. Who owns shorts that actually give enough leg room? I Bought some from yeti that were.... form fitting.

    I'm sure they'll be falling all overt themselves to talk to someone of your hue.
    How do you feel about Atlas Shrugged and plagiarism?

    I live in Washington State so I'd love to put a plug in for heading up the coast towards the Olympic Peninsula. Tonnes of beautiful roads, plus a fair bit of bike trail stuff if you don't want to ride with traffic.
    A good chunk of the peninsula is in the rainshadow and is likely to be dry in the summer, if you're getting closer to the days and realize that it's wet looking where you planned to ride.
