This Post Delayed Due to Unanticipated Additional Awesomeness

05.16.2012 | 11:53 am

Dear Reader,201205161149.jpg

Due to some extra unanticipated additional awesomeness, I am having to do some rewriting of today’s post describing the secret second part of the contest I described yesterday.

I’ll get that post up late this afternoon, or quite possibly this evening.

It will be worth checking back for.

In the meantime, please feel free to speculate on what the second part of this awesome prize will be. Better yet, please feel free to go ahead and enter the contest, so you have a chance of winning something I absolutely guarantee any bike lover would enjoy.

    Here I am refreshing your blog every three minutes all morning, totally psyched for this next, crazy awesome post (is that sad or what?!) … and then I get one and… Noooo!!! It’s another teaser! It’s like an episode of Lost — no answers, just more questions!

    Looking forward to this evening’s update!

    I’m hoping for a lifetimes supply of pie and guacamole.

    After yesterday’s post I was already imagining the winner getting a bike. What more could there be? More than 1 bike? A celebrity appearance? (Who could be bigger than Fatty?)

    I’d like to see your jersey collection all laid out on your driveway. Not just a picture. Then I want to pose in the middle of it and send a picture to my DH as evidence that my collection pales in comparison to yours, Fatty.

    I will tell him that all cyclists have such collections.

    Then I will order another jersey or two from Twin Six.

    A lifetime supply of Dr. Lim’s but mix?

    I apologize for being off topic, but I have a question for Fatty – or anyone, really.

    Fatty has posted about some good body wipes for commuting without a shower. Anyone remember the name of those?

    Thanks all.

    Actionwipes! They were mentioned near the end of RAWROD part 3.

    Like the others, Action Wipes. And here’s Fatty’s link from ‘Things Fatty Loves”

    You will provide a tow rope to haul me up the hills? (I live in a very, very flat area so not much of a climber)

    Either that or Johan Bruyneel will be driving the chase car yelling “pedal faster you idiot, you call that effort?” for the full ride.

    But seriously. I’m guessing the winner gets to keep the perfectly-fitted machine.

    I think you left us a clue at the bottom of today’s post. It’s OXO Cube’s.
    Look them up.
    cheers Limey

    So awesome for you and Johan to arrange departing from Utah for arrival in France in time for the Tour!!

    So thriled to see shipping confirmation today from TwinSix for the 100 MoN kits – checked the order and am now fearing only my purchased entry was shipped and 2 won entries didn’t get received – Say it ain’t so!! Keeping my fingers crossed that the other entries are shipping later??

    @AKChick55…in answer to your question from yesterday (apparently I didn’t close my browser so hadnn’t seen this post), I will repeat my reply here:

    Last year seems most of us Fatties stayed at the UC Davis Hyatt Place…it’s about a 3 minute bike ride from the LIVESTRONG happenings, or a 10 minute walk. Here’s the link if case you are interested:

    Also, last year if you made your reservation thru thru the LIVESTRONG link you got a discount (I don’t know if they (Hyatt) have that link this year…last year I made our reservations, this year my brother made them).

    It was a great place (a bit pricey to my low-bucks lifestyle) but wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. And make SURE you get into town Friday, so you can be at the TEAM FATTY Cycling Hall of Fame evening…it’s reserved for JUST US (thanks to my Sist’a AngieG…AGAIN!) Had a blast last year, it was a great way to kick off our Fatty-fest LS weekend!

    So, you got Lance to agree to ride?
