New York Bike Rides

David Byrne writes about riding bicycles in NYC for nearly 30 years, including the early years withTalking Heads (iTunes) where they made fun of him for being like Pee Wee Herman. While noting how exhilarating riding across town is

“A ride across town gets the adrenalin going as one heads to work or to the studio in the morning. By the time one arrives for a meeting one is fully awake blood pumping, on alert ” having often just had 3 near-death experiences.”

In the bike shop: Schwinn Girl

Schwinn Girl popped into the bike shop with a loose shifter cable. We all agreed the bike was way older than her and it was a 50s or 60s era Varsity. She was convinced it was from the 80s, but loved the bike just the same and for her it seemed like a fashion statement.

Tour de Blast

Pam and I rode the Tour de Blast on Saturday. Still not feeling well, we backed the pace off after I blew on the first climb and rolled it recreationally with the thousands of cyclists.

Tour de Blast is a well-ran, fun event with stunning scenery of Mt. St Helens.
