Man, what do you think of the Lance thing?
I have heard that a lot lately. I ride my bike to work, for dinner or breakfast, downtown for different events, and recreationally. Never raced, though I have been known to, in my youth, go for personal land speed records. Nonetheless, many acquaintances often ask what I think, or if I am upset. I do, as friends know, have opinions about…Continue

Old, forlorned, rusty, dis-used, abused... Renewed!
Remote, isolated, dejected, unlinked... Connected!
Apart, broken, bent, forgotten... United!
Worthless, scruffy, scrap, discounted... Valued!

Change can be subtle or
Change may be great
Change is why I can't eat
a Dinosaur Steak
or Nail to the Door
A rock in a river
Worn down by the war
A reef's up on Everest
With one loud voice, or
Perhaps Dillinger's Biograph
Movie Night choice?
The wheel on the Auto-car
or the Velocipede
A heart the motor
or fossil-fuel grease?
Change can be…Continue

I don't really care what the cranks are made of
I don't mind the enormous tattoo
I never mentioned the mustache
I thought "rock it!" and
Maybe Ride Bikes with you
I just learned what's a 'fixe'
Hope you can handle an 8MPH cruise
A good bike is any, to
Maybe take a Roll with you!
Champagne is cheaper than gas
Why pay a health club for two?
It feels truer than traffic, to
Maybe Ride Bikes with…Continue

After a humiliating fumble and classic, not-to-be-soon-forgotten 500-point robbery just after the starting gun, bk managed to regroup and retain his championship status as Bag Footsie Champ with a dazzling 2000 points and the final, epic, off-trail snare of a full-size garbage bag!!! What a way to blast-off the 2012 Spring Bag Footsie season!
Was the math and Earned Snag Averages miscalculated in my initial boast? Yes. Is this an historic sport in the throes if its infancy? Of course!…Continue

Bag Footsie, sugar-britches. Looking at your feet won''t help ya! I'm up here. Bring any bike you want.

Every litter-bit helps! We have all seen the urban tumbleweed: The lost and forlorn shopping bag! E-Gads! Well, beloved, Here is a fun way to battle them!
Without stopping your bike, using your foot, try to snare an errant, wind-swept shopping bag! Grab it, stow it and properly recycle/re-use it. Careful! Extra points for style!

Here in Uppsala, a city known all over Sweden for its bicycle culture, the new Home Zone makeover of a major thoroughfare has created mass confusion and no small amount of anxiety for pedestrians, so reports our local paper, Uppsala Nytidningen. You can read a working definition of Home Zones at activetrans.org, but according to Sweden's motor vehicle code, it's a section of street where pedestrians have priority over cars and bikes. Motorists are permitted users, as long as they drive at…Continue

I'm a Vlogger and have always loved riding a bike...so the two have fit together like peanut butter and chocolate. I Got an "action camera mount" sent from a friend living in Japan and it has really come in handy. I experiment with different positions and today was risking a little, but I mounted my camera on the fork.…Continue
