Running on 3.5 hours of sleep, so this is brief. If you missed the Stooges last night at the 930 Club, fear not, you can listen to the show on NPR. Not quite the same but it's better than nothing. And the next time any of you try to use the "I'm too old" excuse for not riding, think of this: Iggy Pop is getting ready to turn 60 and last night he made most bands that are a third of his age look like they belong in a nursing home.
Update: I forgot to add the great tour rider the Stooges have.

A few things to keep you busy. Rat-tat-tat.
From our friends over at Dirt Rag comes an action item that needs immediate attention: Valley Forge Trails Targeted for Closure. Public comment ends April 6ht, so get on it. These trails are located in PA outside of Philly.
Also DR related, go check out the soon to be released 'zine Urban Cyclist.
You snooze, you lose. SSWC registration is full. Looks like a few of us locals are making the trip to Scotland. Now we just need to find some cheap airfare.
Via the kids at Ride Lugged comes this link for a video that has girls cycling set to a great tune. It's a promo for a movie called Monkey Warfare that looks worth checking out.
Traveling with your bike can be a pain at times. This solution looks to make your life a little easier. Cool idea.
MD hard rockers Clutch have a new album out. Get it. Here's the video for the new single. You can check other videos of them here
Speaking of music, the Stooges are slated to play in DC tomorrow night. I'm going to see if Iggy's still got it. And speaking of Iggy, Spearmint did the artwork for the recent Single Speed Punk Bike Enduro. Said artwork is now on some T-shirts for those interested.
Biking? Hell yeah. Put in a nice 25 miles on Saturday with Andy at the mighty Elizabeth Furnace in the George Washington National Forest. Wow, I love this trail.
Beer? Got that too. A few of us pedaled to the local brew pub for a beer tasting/dinner last night. A little pricey but the food was great and the beer wasn't bad either. Each course, including dessert, was paired with a different beer. I love to eat mousse! (Hint to the energy gel companies: make your gels taste like mousse and you'll double your sales)
