Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2013

This Sunday I’ll be riding my motorcycle like a gentleman. I’ll be participating in the worldwide Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is all about riding dapper, having fun and raising awareness for men’s health issues. There’s a fund raising component too, so if you feel so inclined, please click the link below and drop a penny or dollar in my virtual fundraising hat.

Vermont Open 2013

The US Open of Snowboarding has been moved from it’s long time home in Stratton, VT to Vail, CO. Vermonters aren’t just going to sit around and sulk though. For three days (March 14-17), Stratton is hosting the VT Open, celebrating the pioneer days and spirit of snowboarding. I’m glad I was at Stratton for the last edition of the US Open and hope to be there for the first edition of the VT Open.
