The shirts have arrived, are being printed, and should be ready to ship on Monday of next week (8/14/06). Those that have pre-ordered are in the queue first and we’re excited here to start wearing them ourselves!
A celebri-bike today, as one New Yorker’s ride keeps turning up on Flickr:metrocard recycling, by nanaenay.
Apparently, this bike belongs to Andy Padre, who has commented on some of the bike’s Flickr pages. He mentioned a photoshoot with an AP photographer, so you might see this bike turn up as a feature photo in your local paper soon. Here are a few more:
Over at 2 Wheel Commute, “ajb” posts on his RAGBRAI experience, and on his quest to get the elusive Lance Armstrong picture. He spent 9 miles at 25 mph chasing (and losing) Armstrong’s posse one day, and then got another chance the next day.
Don’t miss the results…
It’s the time of year in Seattle, when I often say, “I love living here.” As the NYTimes reports, “Clouds lift, mountains and water come out of hiding, decks fill with flowers and bare limbs, and trendy menus promote a different local berry every week: strawberries, raspberries, marionberries.” And the cyclists all come out!
My favorite city rides include
- Magnolia loop – along the waterfront, Myrtle Edwards Park, up to Magnolia, and back.
- Alki path – from my house, spectacular views of the sound, people, down the path and bike.
- The Super Special – through downtown, Westlake ave, right at Red Robin, Lake Wa blvd.
What are your favorite rides in your city?
The AP reports on a new study showing that Americans are falling out of love with their cars. Let the break ups begin! And go on the rebound with “economy and efficiency.” I travel a lot, speaking about my book, blogging, and consulting and I’ll go out of my way to not get a car, bring my bike, and use mass transit. My Volvo is a great car and a pleasure to drive on the open road, but there’s no joy in a commute or drive to the grocery store.
Last week when I met a commuter who had given up his car, I wondered how many more drivers had done that recently. Have any of you? Know anyone that’s dropped their car like a bad habit?
