I had the great fortune to attend Quality Bicycle Products' Saddledrive out in Snowbasin, Utah this week. It was three days of learning about and riding new bikes from Salsa, Surly, and All-City.

Let me start by saying that we work with some of the best bicycle makers in the game and they keep surprising me with their innovations. Furthermore, Snowbasin, Utah was an incredible sight for this east-coaster and the riding was great.

Last summer Salsa announced that they had teamed up with Dave Weagle to reformat their two full-suspension bikes with his Split-Pivot rear suspension design. We couldn't wait to see it for ourselves. Now we are starting to see the first of them rolling through the shop.

The new Surly ECR is the perfect machine to help me formulate my aspirations for 2014. The DIY acronym, "ECR" has as many variations as the bike has capabilities. Its stable, sure-footed, and rugged; which inspires you to go further and take the path least traveled.

With a bike under my butt in 2014 I'm looking forward to being creative - to pick the route most interesting, even if it keeps me out after the street lights have turned on (and off again); to get faster and ride slower; to sleep under the stars once a week (once the spring comes); to stay organized; to keep hopeful; to reach for my toes once a day (keep those legs straight!); to write more, and better; to get the girl; to be patient; to discover new music; to stay healthy; to accept a help up when down; and to fight for our future. I don't think that this bike will give me all these things, but I suspect that the motivation inherent in the bicycle will create the situations necessary too fulfill any goal you can believe in.

Thank you to everyone that made 2013 so special. Now, Here's to an inspired 2014!
