Photo of the day

A celebri-bike today, as one New Yorker’s ride keeps turning up on Flickr:

MetroCard bike

Apparently, this bike belongs to Andy Padre, who has commented on some of the bike’s Flickr pages. He mentioned a photoshoot with an AP photographer, so you might see this bike turn up as a feature photo in your local paper soon. Here are a few more:

Expired MetroCards are often used creatively.



Good RAGBRAI story with Armstrong pics

2 Wheel Commute | Ragbrai Pics & the Lance Glance

Over at 2 Wheel Commute, “ajb” posts on his RAGBRAI experience, and on his quest to get the elusive Lance Armstrong picture. He spent 9 miles at 25 mph chasing (and losing) Armstrong’s posse one day, and then got another chance the next day.

Don’t miss the results…



Sunny Season in Seattle

It’s the time of year in Seattle, when I often say, “I love living here.” As the NYTimes reports, “Clouds lift, mountains and water come out of hiding, decks fill with flowers and bare limbs, and trendy menus promote a different local berry every week: strawberries, raspberries, marionberries.” And the cyclists all come out!

My favorite city rides include

  • Magnolia loop – along the waterfront, Myrtle Edwards Park, up to Magnolia, and back.
  • Alki path – from my house, spectacular views of the sound, people, down the path and bike.
  • The Super Special – through downtown, Westlake ave, right at Red Robin, Lake Wa blvd.

For more on rides in Seattle, see the bike maps and remember the Bicycle Saturday and Sunday weekends along the lake.

What are your favorite rides in your city?



Dreading driving

The AP reports on a new study showing that Americans are falling out of love with their cars. Let the break ups begin! And go on the rebound with “economy and efficiency.” I travel a lot, speaking about my book, blogging, and consulting and I’ll go out of my way to not get a car, bring my bike, and use mass transit. My Volvo is a great car and a pleasure to drive on the open road, but there’s no joy in a commute or drive to the grocery store.

Last week when I met a commuter who had given up his car, I wondered how many more drivers had done that recently. Have any of you? Know anyone that’s dropped their car like a bad habit?
