STOP right there!

We at Bandcycle have come upon some hard times. Maj has misplaced his left arm, Kortlander's got swine flu, and Mallette grew a tail that he won't quit chasing. Personally, I don't think he'll ever catch it.

Here's the real deal. We're taking a few days off and recouping. I got the flu, and the rest of the boys are just using my sickness as an excuse to take some time off. I am currently sitting in the Kansas City airport about to board a flight back to Brooklyn to see my girlfriend for a few days, and the rest of the boys are on their way to Denver to hang with Kortlander's krew.

I know what you're thinking, this undoubtedly compromises the integrity of our trans-American cycling journey. I've thought about this and decided it doesn't. I'm not going to sit here and justify it, as I have no real way to. It just doesn't compromise it. Don't ask questions. Perhaps you disagree and will quit following our blog and spread nasty rumors to TMZ. Forget you anyhow. I'd like to see you ride this far!

We love you all, and think you're grand folks for continuing to follow our hijinks.  The second webisode is in the works and boy will you enjoy it.  In an effort to get more hits, I have decided to randomly insert pop culture links so that maybe we'll get hits in google when people search for these things.  Just ignore these...it's all a publicity stunt and an effort to get super super rich and famous.  Snookie.

Don't worry, keep it up! It's

Don't worry, keep it up! It's been a blast following you guys. SEO tip: Key words in your content are rated upon how often the appear. Focus on words about town and band names, travelling and music. Use key "phrases" which are more likely to show up in results. Maybe while you're not travelling, have general insights posts about music, etc. :)
