Remembering Pat Malach – The progression from local races to national ones and then on to world tour events isn’t something only racers do. For Pat Malach it was writing and race reporting. Pat started a blog in 2008 called Oregon Cycling Action, worked his way up to covering bigger events around the country, and eventually became an editor with CyclingNews covering professional road racing all over the world. Ian Boswell of Bend, OR rose through the ranks as a bike racer at the same time and shares his thoughts in a beautiful tribute on Pat who passed away earlier this week. Thank you, Ian, and tailwinds to you, Pat!
Spoke’n Hostel on Path Less Pedaled – Russ and Laura from Path Less Pedaled hosted a livestream with Spoke’n Hostel proprietors and bike touring all-stars Jalet and Pat from Mitchell, Oregon. We tuned in live and it was fascinating to see the comments come in from viewers all over the world who know of this wonderful 5-star oasis. Thankfully the interview is recorded and available on Path Less Pedaled‘s YouTube channel. Lovely people on both sides of this interview. Check it out:
Just like you, we find ourselves on social media a little bit more than usual and that’s not altogether a bad thing. We’ve been able to pay a little more attention to our friends and to enjoy the world as seen through their eyes. This post reminds us of the spring “snow” everyone loves.
