Recreational, Exercise, Commuting, Distance, Around Town, My business involves biking
About me:
I commute to work right now and I'm going to do some centuries. I'm getting into the touring thing and have done some short camping trips and am always looking to do more!

I also do balloon twisting, though I'm NOT a clown. I'm working up my skills and am available for parties and I'll be doing deliveries of sculptures and bouquets by bike. You can check out my balloon stuff at www.balloonbiker.com And yes! I can make a bike out of balloons!


At Critical Mass, I usually put balloons in my helmet and ride around looking all cool.

Thanks for the comment Jami!  I've been a passive chainlink observer but I haven't tried to reach out and connect with anyone until lately.  So much great stuff is going on here.  Lesley

I both plan to and am biking through the winter! After busting both of my bikes (pot hole for one, overfilled tire the other) I got one fixed up with new tires and a new wheel and installed a rack and I'm ready for action! Hope to see you at another event sometime. That paranormal ride totally made my Halloween. -Erika

I know...It was time though. In the words of Mike Ditka "this too shall pass". It was getting confusing. Someone would say "you're not Nathan Fillian", and I didnt know if I should respond with a "yes, I am not Nathan Fillian" or "I know"....or "I know, that you know, that yes I am in deed not Nathan Fillian". See...where would the insanity stop?

Sure, if you want me to take a peek at the map for the upcoming ride, I'll let you know if I see any additional places to add.

Nah...I fell in between the cracks :p Good to see you too! It was a very communal dining experience...and the barefoot thing was neat too.

Jamie and I met in college at UPS in Tacoma in 1978. Over the next 29 years we lived in Gig Harbor, Olympia, Seattle, San Jose (CA), Olympia again, Kirkland. We moved to Chicago in 2007.

Which part of unincorporated Pierce County do you hail from? How did you wind up here?

How was mass? I saw you from afar...busily twisting up some balloon! Hope it was fun for you.
