the news...

heather and i are buying a house! this isn't news to anyone who i've talked to recently, but i figured it was time to let the cat out of the bag here on the blog as the process is far enough along that there's not a lot left that could go wrong...

what started as an informal look at what was on the market in silver spring one sunday morning quickly snowballed into an offer and then a contract on a little cape cod just on the other side of "downtown" (and still within walking distance to the quarry house).

the last two weeks have been a whirlwind of paper and inspections, offers and counteroffers. we should be closing in mid march and then the work really starts.

city bikes team picture

for the first time since i've been on the team we've managed to do a real team picture. thanks to temperance hall for being understanding hosts as we once again took over their downstairs bar (and having great food & beer as usual) and our waitress for steping in and taking the picture once we had it all set up. not everyone could make it last night, but here's most (well at least half) of the team for 2007.

dcmtb/city bikes mountain bike team - take 2

here's a big thanks to our 2006 sponsors: city bikes, metro gutter & home services, bell, serfas, wtb, and blackburn for making last year great and here's hoping that this year will be even better. all of the 2006 sponsors are re-upping for 2007 and we'll be adding whole foods market - p street, pedro's, and easton, with another couple in the works but not ready to be announced.
