I finished my season three weeks ago, but that didn’t mean I had no more events on the calendar. In fact, my schedule was loaded with trips and events. First off was an Olympic race in Santa Barbara. Then we’d be off to Kona – not to race this year, but as spectators. We planned to hurry home from the Big Island in time to participate in the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) event in San Diego, followed by the Tram Challenge in Palm Springs the week after. And the list of activities went on and on. But those plans came to a screeching halt in the blink of an eye. Remember that Olympic race in Santa Barbara? Well, that’s where the unraveling began with a bike collision one mile from T2. Fortunately, the other rider was unharmed. Me…. not so much. I’m sitting here today with four fractures in my pelvis, which means no weight-bearing for 4-6 weeks. If you are an athlete or live with one, you know that hearing this is like a death sentence. Now, this most certainly is an exaggeration, but in the first moments after hearing these words, that’s what it feels like. And, in

Last year, we announced the roll-out of Boingo Wi-Fi at Krispy Kreme stores throughout Southern California, and it was delightful to see our community get a sugar Wi-Fi high just hearing the news. But some of you were a bit bummed that our Krispy Kreme coverage wasn’t more widespread. So we promised we’d keep trying…and guess what? Boingo now operates the Wi-Fi at additional Krispy Kreme stores in Nevada, Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Wisconsin, thanks to a partnership with Krispy Kreme franchisee Westward Dough! Saweet! Read the press release here. Thanks to all you squeaky wheels out there! It’s great to get guidance from the customer community, and we hope you keep the feedback coming! Meanwhile, stay tuned for an upcoming Krispy Kreme contest with doughnuts and other prizes galore.
Cycling fanatics Nancy and John Vogel met and fell in love while on a bike tour. Once their twin boys, Daryl and Davy, came along, the couple figured their dream of an extended bike tour would never be realized. But in 2008, as Nancy describes it, “the planets aligned” and the family of four set forth. The itinerary: Alaska to Argentina. Two years later, they’ve traveled 18,000 kilometers and are currently in the twelfth country, Peru. Once they reach Argentina, they may very well decide to bike on. Read our interview with Nancy and learn more about how the Vogels are re-defining the concept of “family time.” What’s the background behind the Alaska to Argentina route? For one year, from 2006 to 2007, we took the kids on our first major tour biking around the U.S. and Mexico. We met a few other cyclists that were doing the Alaska to Argentina route. “Why not us?” we thought. “Let’s just continue on south!” At the time, however, we had to accept the fact that we simply weren’t prepared for a 3-year journey into the Andes so we stuck with our North American plan for the time being and set our sights
