Vernal Equinox 2008 RideCivil report

March_08_RideCivil-2What a great spring ride. We had a nice intimate crowd (less than 20, more than 3 although pretty close to that number) and fantastic weather. We spent just a small amount of time in downtown (route here) , voting instead to head up towards Queen Anne, Eastlake and then under/along I-5 back through to S. Lake Union. We stopped off at the Cafe Venus/Mars Bar for a bit of food and some beer before heading our respective ways.

My favorite part of the ride was the smell of spring in the air, shocking lack of rain, and how much sun we all got. I’m still tan from it!

We’ll resume our normal 2nd Friday schedule for next month’s April RideCivil. Check back here for details. Photos from the ride at the Bikehugger Urban group.

Rechargable batteries take a lickin

takes_a_lickin.jpg I prefer my lights to run on double or triple A batteries, mostly because I can get rechargables and even if they run out I can usually bum a replacement. On the down side, good rechargables can be pretty spendy. This is why when I heard something fall off my bike this evening I circled back. Hell, that’s $20 of batteries I thought. I have no idea what the driver of the SUV (who was driving slower than I was riding I might add) was thinking when he ran right over my dropped battery pack.

The battery pack is dead, shattered into a hundred tiny pieces. The replacement should be about $3 at the local electronics store. The batteries though? Seemingly unharmed. The moral of the story? Don’t let your battery pack fall onto the road, but if you do, use rechargeable double AAs.
