The Detroit Free Press is reporting that retired Red Wing Goalie Dominik Hasek might do some mountain bike racing.

Hasek, 43, lives in the Czech Republic but still figures to spend some time here, where his son, Michael, is a freshman at Michigan State. The two will meet in East Lansing this week, and Hasek also plans to be with the Wings when they visit the White House.

Hasek said he is happy with his decision to retire.

For now, he plans to run his business and play beach volleyball with friends. He also hopes to participate in mountain bike races.

It’s unclear whether he’ll be racing in Michigan or the Czech Republic.



Stanley Cup visits Riverdays

I was working at the Michigan Trails and Greenways booth at Detroit’s RenCen for Riverdays. The organizer came over on the last day and asked to pack up the booth early. The Stanley Cup was en route and they didn’t want us to get in its way. No problem. I packed everything up and jumped in line.


Red Wings Parade hits Downtown

Kris Draper in the 2008 Red Wings ParadeCup fever has hit Hockeytown and today’s parade downtown really capped off the celebration.

With a million spectators expected, the newspapers warned about traffic and parking problems ($20!). No problems for biking. In fact, it seemed like a lot of other folks had the same idea.

Fortunately I was able to get around and take quite a few photos of Red Wings, the Cup, and more.
