Missouri River

Last weekend, I met up with some friends on the Missouri River. As the sun went down, a group of folks and a handful of dogs piled into a boat and headed up river to play around on the islands. I brought along the camera and here are the photos.

Como CycloCross

Last week marked the start of a new CycloCross series in Columbia. For twenty minutes each week, riders race and jump hurdles in one of the strangest sports on two wheels. Each race involves riders trying to complete as many laps as possible on a compressed course. Riders also have to clear obstacles where they must carry their bikes. The sport is rumored to have started as a winter race where cyclists could keep up their practice in poor weather.
