Thusday Night Lights - Business
Paul, Todd and I are building the Moonmen foundation. Pouring the concrete. Cutting the trail. Our business meetings always include a ride. Riding is a Moonmen core value, we gotta ride. To keep you folks interested we know we have to keep the content fresh on the dub, dub, dub so we travel with a camera. Our intention this past Thursday was to grab some portraits of ourselves for the site so you know that robots aren't building your bikes. Though, BTW, we do strive for full robot automation by 2025, so we have more time to ride. Fort Collins is home to Colorado State University which is my alma mater. Go Rams! My school spirit is thin at best but I do have a bucket list item to attend a CSU sporting event before I die. But I digress. Our thought was to get some photos next to some of the sweet architecture the university has to offer. CSU is mostly locked up right now due to the winter break so after considering breaking an entering and/ or climbing up buildings, Pauly captured some sweet, shots outside of the under-construction, Lory Student Center.
Our time spent riding doesn't have a lot to do with mileage goals or target heart rates, (though if that's your thing, I get it) but more about wandering. We're always feeling out the landscape for what's inspirational. Both following and leading, chatting or nose down, grinding it out, these ideas are meta for Moonmen.
We peeled off from campus and headed to the Poudre River Social Trails. These trails are comprised of meandering single track built of years of randomness and erosion. The river flooded like crazy this fall so much of the trail is now gone or covered in dead fall. There's a ton of potential but there's only so much time to get after it by the light of the moon with come alongs and folding saws. Regardless it's always fun to suss out the ever-changing landscape. West of the North Shields Natural area a major flood mitigation project is underway. The elevation is desolate from machines having scraped and moved the earth. We came up on this lone tree. Pauly set up for some timed exposures. The shots are nice and eerie.
We've got some great things on the way. Stay tuned. 2014 is going to be big!
