Getting ready for Jay's Challenge

It's hot here. Real hot. And rainy. It rains every day around 3:00PM, which effectively cools the day but sometimes it just seems like a sauna. I'm getting used to it now, but last few weeks during the TDF, I was glued to the TV every morning so I didn't get out until after 11:00.

After a few days of running out of water, I decided I should take two bottles with me.

But since we got back from St. Lucia, I'm feeling better every day. I'm not sure if I'm recovered from RAAM yet. I'll find out this weekend...

See you in Vermont.

Wedding Bells Were Ringing!

Here is a copy of the recent press release about our wedding last week

Wedding Bells Ring for Tinker Juarez and New Bride

Just two weeks after finishing and placing third in the Enduro Division of the Race Across America, Mountain biking icon Tinker Juarez married microbiologist Terri Slifko on July 6 at ANSE CHASTANET RESORT in St. Lucia.

The ceremony was attended by close family and friends and took place in the Resort's Treehouse Restaurant overlooking the ANSE CHASTANET beach and the Caribbean Sea. The wedding cake sported 2 miniature bikes.

After the ceremony, the couple went to Anse Mamin where the sugar mill ruins and bicycle facility are located just to get photos at the head of Tinker’s Trail. Then, the wedding party met them on the resort yacht Serenity and sailed into the sunset.


The couple will continue their honeymoon at ANSE CHASTANET before returning to their Winter Garden, Florida home where they will be busy making preparations for the birth of their baby boy!

Some photos will be posted soon on Tinker's website at http://www.tinkerjuarez.com/.
