  1. Hi….What are you wearing to protect your legs? What type of wraparound sunglasses?

  2. 91 degrees in April? What’s up with that? I thought Oregon was supposed to be a cool state temperature-wise.

  3. Hi Ken,
    Well, that shot is a still from an upcoming short film that is in production currently. I was wearing the following: Outdoor Research (OR) Sunrunner cap, Edge polarized wrap-around sunglasses, Mountain Hardware Way2Cool face buff, Nike RCB jersey, Sansha tights, Wigwam Diabetic Sports Crew socks, and SIDI Dominator 5 Pro shoes.

  4. Hi Steve,
    Yeah, that was a freak of a day, the 30th of April, no less! The past week has seen rain, and it is currently raining. Usually the 90 and 100 degree days don’t hit the Oregon coast until summer, so everyone was shocked to see 91 so early. The wind was also blowing gusts up to 12 that day, so it stayed marginally cool on the trike. A little breeze is all a triker needs to be a cool cat!

  8. And just think of how much faster you would be if you took all that garb off. :)

  9. No apology necessary Steve. I love laughing, especially at myself, because the farther from being normal I am, the happier I am. I suppose that’s why I pedal a tricycle at an age when many folks are starting to die off. And you’re right, that garb causes drag and air turbulence, but at least it’s faster than what I normally wear, and more comfy too!
