This past weekend, the Thanksgiving-themed LSM/Carve Off was held here in Long Beach, California, and was preceded by an event featuring the master, Fred Welch of the Trikke Academy, conducting a riding workshop in a parking lot near Rosie’s Dog Beach. All who participated got some great tips and a reminder that no matter how long one has carved, the basics are still a good skill to brush up on.
Not that I am brushing up. I’m still learning, even after three years. A friend likes to quote Trikke inventor Gildo Beleski, who says that, even after all these years, he’s still learning new ways to ride. Can you imagine the miles, stances and moves that have been perpetrated on his 3cv?
As for last Saturday’s ride, I was grateful for many things. That I pretty much did the course (coming in last, but finishing still). That I was with friends I hadn’t seen in a few weeks, and friends I just met. That we met for pizza, not turkey sandwiches.
So what else has Trikker Chick been up lately? Here now, my week in the rearview…
Of course I am thankful for all I have, so I wrote it all out for the world to see. I am proud of my accomplishments and who I am, who I know and what I do. Let’s just say I’m thankful. So I created a thanksgiving post as yummy as cranberry sauce, on turkey. Keep your forks off this page, please.
I also considered the rule of three, not just in three wheels. Have you ever noticed how things are presented in threes, as in Three Musketeers, Three Blind Mice or three wheels? Here’s why…
In the spirit of the holidays, I dug up an old post on Bike Guys Have Cool Toys. There are some pretty sick toys out there to be mounted on bikes. Where are our toys, t-shirts and mass produced specialty items? Are there any aspiring entrepreneurs out there?
My final thought for the week is on naming my carving vehicle and the song that put to music the whole affair with my Trikke, which could also be called obsessive, excessive and complete. These are all good states of mind when considering a life affirming relationship with myself, on the back of my carving vehicle.
