I’m about to put this blog on hiatus as I’m a poser who hasn’t pedaled in 3 weeks. The weather has been pretty warm, but fair. I have no excuse. I’ve just been pretty passionless about everything lately.
I got my summah slicks on the bike tonight. I plan on resuming my pedal passion tomorrow. As June is Colorado Bike Month, the next two weeks are filled with celebrations of pedal power. I’ve got a 30 mile group night ride Friday, it’s an easy trail but I want to be fit for it. Bike to work day is next week, which I really like to make “Bike to Work Week”. Mostly I just need to get out there because I know it’s what I love to do and I will be back in it if I just make myself do it.
Canadian designer Greg Papove brought Whoopdeedoo installations to a Vancouver bike path. The project interrupts the typical commute of many cyclists and celebrates biking as a fun and spontaneous means of transportation.
Anonymous asked: yeah i first thought it would be "all aboard", then i thought about it again and it seemed wrong because they're already on it, rather than in the action of getting on it so I switched it to onboard.. ehh why wasn't I ever taught this term in grade school.. -citymaus
I went with it because there’s room for plenty on the Yuba
three onboard the yuba!
@oaklavia / love our lake day! 09.06.13.
my mom says this is how they used to do back in the day in china—with her mom (my grandma) in control and her and her brother in the back—but on a regular old bike.
Bike transit + urbanism + coffee? Yes, turns out it’s possible to combine all of these wonderful things in a single creative act. The city of Zurich partnered with designers to deliver a drive-up (bike-up?) table for bikers to enjoy a cup of coffee without having to get off their ride. No need to find a place to lock up before heading inside.
As an added bonus: if you check in via Foursquare, a barista delivers fresh cup of joe right to your table (for free!).
add that to my restaurant plan
