TKD Demo 7.23.05

Last Saturday Ethan and Miles did some board and brick breaking as part of a demonstration put on by their Tae Kwon Do studio. It was held at an outdoor children's fair. It was the first time they had tried to break bricks. Miles broke one and Ethan broke two. Master Dan Graff, their teacher, broke four bricks using his knuckles.

Cascade Cycling Classic

Bend is home to the Cascade Cycling Classic, the oldest multi-stage bike race in the US, and one of the most prestigous. We spent some time over the weekend watching three of the six stages. Two of those stages were criteriums - short courses where the riders keep whizzing by. It was pretty fun to be able to keep track of individual riders and their progress during the race.
