a dude named Marcus

timbuk_marcus.jpg Back I think in 97 or 98, I bought a tri-color messenger bag from Alki Bike in West Seattle from a dude named Marcus. The bag was a shop sample, I got a bro-deal on it, and more importantly started a long-term friendship with Marcus. He wrenched my bike for years and also drank lots of beer with me. I rode with that bag just last week and today is Marcus’ birthday.

Tonight at Beveridge Place, we’ll drink with beers from Schooner Exact, his craft brewery and celebrate.



North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2008

Best City Bike NAHBS 2008 is set to roll into Portland next February 8-10. I’ve wanted to attend the show that has been in San Jose in recent years. Now that it’s only 200mi away, I have no excuse. Maybe we’ll need to organize a ‘Hugger ride down - our own STP (and back) in February. Fenders would be a must.

Bicycle Film Festival

I still try to stay tuned in to my other home-town, the Second City - Chicago! The Bicycle Film Festival 2007 will be rolling through later this week.



The Jones Soda Pedicab

We rode over to the South Lake Union Block Party on Friday and spotted the new Jones Soda Pedicab. Made by Main Street Pedicabs, a version of their Pedal Pickup, Jones will load those up with sodas for the Seahawks games this Fall.
