Red Rocket

This bike was like bluegrass music to me – I’d never buy it, not my thing, but certainly appreciated the artistry, craftsmanship, and style.


Spotted at the bike races this weekend.

Frankendork Pursuit Tall Bike

When you’re a frame maker tired of turning out custom bikes for other people… What do you do? When you’re Marty from Geekhouse Bikes, you build yourself, (perhaps the world’s first,) custom pursuit tall bike. Why? Because you can. This little number is lovingly named “Frankendork.”

Bike to the Sound

I’m not entirely sure how I missed this, though as I mentioned previously my bike hasn’t seen much love recently. And at five weeks post-partum, I’m still not quite ready for any big rides. This afternoon though, I laced up my shoes for a quick six-mile run down along Shilshole.

You can imagine my surprise when I turned left off the Burke-Gilman, only to see all the bikes headed straight ahead, continuing on the newly completed extension to Golden Gardens. The cyclists enjoyed a nice wide lane, beautiful landscaping and a route well-protected from the adjacent road.

I’m excited to take a quick spin across The Locks this summer and test out the new road. Though, I’m certainly turning around at Golden Gardens and bypassing the hill climb to the top of the park and into Crown Hill.


Don’t know the story here, but that’s a great shot – riding right down the highway.

Take Back The Tour

Like Andrew, I too will be watching Le Tour for another year. I’ve been glued to the tube for three weeks every July, since long before Versus was all hip and OLN showed fly fishing marathons every weekend. Back when Indurain was king and there was only one broadcast each day that my father and I taped on worn-out VHS cassettes.

How far we’ve come in fifteen years. Replacing VHS, I curl up each evening with my DVR remote to watch the early morning broadcast in an effort to minimize the “Roll-factor”. New this year, just for geeks like me, experience the course using Google’s Street View.
