Falling Behind

I suppose I make too big of a deal out of this blog sometimes, and i’m trying to get to the spot where I just don’t give a fuck anymore, and don’t have to view it as a big production or some sort of half-assed business opportunity. Between that, and being behind on a goal…

“Country State of Mind”

Sometimes I have these delusions of grandeur, like i’ve been doing all this cycling stuff for so long, and i’m SO experienced, but i’m really not. As far as long-distance cycling goes, i’m still very much in my infancy, and it’s been recognized in rides that i’ve done of late (they have been super hard)….

This is a Real Bike

It’s been almost a year since my last post, and let me tell you, 2015 was an eventful year for me…well, in cycling anyways. I’m very proud of my 2015. In total I rode 8,700 miles(70% of that alone), biked in 3 countries(other than the US), got to ride in Europe twice, did a 600k…

Night Riding

I know it’s been a long time since i’ve posted, and i’ve really appreciated the encouraging words in regards to writing again. It’s always hard for me to fathom people reading this, but I suppose a few are. So to you I simply say “Thank You”. Moving on… A lot has happened since my last…

Home…or at least it used to be

I’ve always been a night owl instead of a morning person, but there’s a certain time, in either category that you’d like to put yourself in, that you’re basically getting seclusion out of both no matter what. I really like that about both. However, your mind is completely different in each, and both have a…

Late Start

There’s always something to say about NYC. This year I was able to ride there on three separate occasions on three different bikes. For me, that’s pretty cool. Just as in all the other times, the last one did not disappoint. This last time I was able to get in 2 rides. One, sun up,…

No Cohesion

I think the funny thing about riding a bicycle is the moments I fear most are the ones I tend to remember the best. I haven’t had too many accidents on my bicycle, but it’s really some of the most vividly remembered parts of my riding. Fort Worth was the most recent accident (last week)….

“Time Off”

Time off… It’s far and few between for the rest of the year, and for our singer (Bj), it happens to be even less. Between 10 days from now until the beginning of November, we’re basically gone.  In that time we will have gone as far Northeast as Boston, and as far Northwest/Southwest as Seattle/Los…

Northsheesh, Ass Berry Pork, New York Shitty

Touring life can be hectic, and the last three weeks have not been without it’s fair share of frustrations, lack of sleep, drinking and a few long over-night drives to name a few things. It’s hard to explain what it’s like touring, but I could probably relate it to when you drive your family, or…

Why i’m here.

My name is Kevin and I play drums for a band called American Aquarium, hence the name of the blog. Although the band is not the focus of this blog, i’m sure it will have it’s fair mention. I’ve been playing drums for over half of my life now (16years), but have spent the last…

Another Useless Blog is Born

For whatever reason, I have convinced myself that it would be a good idea to start a blog. It will mostly be an open journal for myself, and mostly an excuse not to drink, be productive and post more pictures of a bike i’m riding in front of something for the sake of art and…
