The challenge is over for me. So - I missed a day - I think it was last Thursday or something. Then I skipped Saturday…and Sunday. I was (am) sick, and I’ve got an, um, issue that is making riding a little less than pleasant right now. I didn’t ride today, and I won’t for another 2-3 as I drag my family across the globe to Australia. Once I’m settled there, it’s GAME ON! I found a great resource for cycling in and around Brisbane. I’ll be riding my new bike (pictures coming) and keeping BikeHugger in the loop on all the cool things I see during the adventure.
If you want to make a difference on bicycle transportation issues in the state of Georgia, a big chance comes up next weekend.
It’s the second “Georgia Rides to the Capitol” event, with the mayors of three suburban cities (Decatur, Marietta, and Roswell) joining Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin on rides to the state capitol in Atlanta. Distances range from 5 miles (Decatur) to 21 miles (Roswell) one-way.
The rides are timed to arrive at the Capitol around 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6. Police will escort the rides inbound but not outbound.
In honor of the Oscars, WashCycle offers a Top 10 Bike Movies list. We all know what’s at the top of the list, but this list offers some good variety, and a couple of films I’ve never seen. And I’m a sucker for the line “Still includes best method for proving one is in Texas.”
Also, any movie list that includes Better Off Dead rocks, by definition.
Any reports on the ride? The ferries full o’ bikes?
