Blue Grass State Joins TSB!

The boys from "Love The Pain" a unique blog site, have joined the mayhem and will start representin' TSB in the south in 2008. Doug Roemer and Brian Segal are newer to the sport of cycling, but have always had a passion for COOL PEOPLE and COOL STUFF...which is why they will be hanging with the crew from TSB!

They are the start of TSB's GLOBAL CALL OUT PROGRAM. The recking crew from the south will dable in a variety of events this summer. Both have an interest in road racing, mtb XC racing, tri's, running events and the wacky sport of Cyclo-Cross. I'm not sure if its the beer or the cycling part of the Cyco-Cross they like more...we'll find out soon enough. Other parts of the GLOBAL CALL OUT PROGRAM will be headed up by Kimi Yamanaka of TSB's Japan cycling team, and Kyle Tabor will pedal for us in the wind's of Chicago. All the original Michiganders will keep it real on the mitten scene.

1X9 Designs - The Best Cycling Sportswear

1X9 Design was born from a need for cool casual cycling apparel. Unlike many of the boring or "loud" t-shirts offered by the mainstream bike industry, they focus on making designs that are clean, simple, and fun, but still express cycling. However, you will always find 1X9 Design's apparel with distinctive and progressive styling.

Their goal is to deliver "Apparel Geared for the Cyclist"!

So, go ahead, treat yourself like a pro, pick up a new 1X9 shirt!

Michigan Sports Calendar

If you look to the right side of the screen you will notice a new Google Calendar that I just added. I called it the Michigan Sports Calendar and would like to have any and all endurance sports added to the calendar. For the time being, I have only added a limited number of events and they do not have a time, location, website or any other information added to them.

For example, if you want to see an event that is upcoming, use the month box to move forward to June and click on a day the month of June will appear with either a linked number in the date box or a color coded box for a particular event. Click on one of the date boxes with a linked number and a pop-up appears with a list of events for that day.

The way I have the events ordered:
- Blue is for a Mountain Bike event
- Green is for a Multi-Sport Event
- Red is for a Road Cycling event
- Yellow will be for a running event
- Brown will be for an adventure race

If you would like to add a calendar to your site, choose one or all of the following links. Please share this link with anyone that you think would benefit from the calendars and when you do, post the teamsandbag.blogspot.com link so people can come here to access the calendar.

Entire Calendar

Over the next month or so, I am going to update the events, websites, times, locations, etc. I am still working on updating the event list. If you would like an event added, post a reply or send me an email through blogspot or gmail.

Ghost Bike

A Ghostbike is a junker bike that has been painted stark white and afixed to the site where a cyclist has been hit or killed by a car driver. Ghostbikes are intended to be memorials for the fallen and reminders to everyone to SHARE THE ROAD with one another. Ride safe and give cyclists a break. Reckless riding and driving kills.

Visit Ghostbike.org for More Info.
