Overdue (Night ride and Sony Open)

I apologize for being m.i.a! Last week two awesome events: 1) night ride through downtown. 2) Sony Open.
I met up with my friends Ryan and Jon. We've been talking about doing a night ride downtown and we finally did it. Ryan custom built his own fixed gear and brought that out, while Jon brought out his mountain bike. He's in the process of picking up/building his own fixed gear also. All that mattered was we got to ride. Meeting point was Fresh Cafe, previously featured in past blogs. (I really have to do a blog just on them). We rammed around the streets of Honolulu for a bit and decided to head downtown to a place called Manifest to grab a few beers before heading back. It was an awesome time with temperatures in the mid 60s and not too many cars on the streets. Ryan and Jon were also stoked about how free we could roam the streets. I'm still working up the skills to take some video while riding. Though it was the first ride, it definitely won't be the last.


Lock it up!

Over the weekend was the PGA Sony Open. My first one and it was super fun to watch. It was definitely an experience being able to follow the pros from hole to hole while holding a cold beer in your hand. No cameras or phones were allowed into the course so I could only snap some pics of what was going on outside. I didn't realize how much pressure these guys are under with huge crowds watching every move they make! They were damn good! I don't golf, but I definitely admired the skill and patience you need to be good at the game. Overall, it was a great experience. I did have thoughts about how It would've been awesome to be able to jet through the course on my bike.

The weather was pretty nice I'd say...

  1. ramsey and I actually had a discussion about you recently. ramsey said you interviewed her and that you drop by fresh cafe frequently. she asked if I knew you, and I said "yes, but he never comes riding with us anymore." then I frowned. come riding with us, wesley!
