Fans of the show, know that bikes are often featured – just last week they had barrel bikes and last season bakfiets. Fans also know that they contestants are always in taxis and planes. I’d love to see an Amazing Race on bikes.

Attended the Bike Works auction last night and 60K was raised for their programs.
Bike Works has been working for kids, bikes, and community in the Rainier Valley since 1996. Our programs invest in young people and encourage bicycling as a clean and healthy transportation alternative
Fabric Horse makes some great looking bags, and their newest release–designed to fit into the basket on a bicycle–also helps make the world a little better place.
All the proceeds for the bag, which is made of 90% recycled materials with a wooden bottom and recycled seat-belt straps, goes toward funding Fabric Horse’s skill building educational trip in St. Thomas, Jamaica. Fabric Horse will lead a skill building workshop at the Johns Town Women’s Sewing and Craft Collective at The Source Farm, which will lead to better job prospects for the attendees.
Of course you don’t have to buy a bag to donate or to follow along with this mission, just check out the Fabric Horse Blog for more information.
Ran an errand on Bettie to pick up a Torker cargo bike. That’s bike on bike action and both were cargo. Add a fixie next time and we’ve got a menage a trois.
