Morning Ride

No, not mine. Some guy in Canada in a well-made video that’s good enough to transcend the fact that it’s an advertisement.

Pretty slick bag design too–which I’d consider for myself if I ever get a job that requires I wear a suit (read: not likely).

30 Day of Biking–Week Three

Another week, another seven days of cycling. Commuting, taking the long way home, the weekly coffee-outside ride, a Sunday road ride in the sun (with its attendant early season sunburn), and more porteur-ing to work and a conference.

Also, the Necro-Pug is sorta for sale. Kinda.

30 Days of Biking–Week Two

After the second week of the 30 Days of Biking, I realized that I didn’t in fact ride every day. Damn.

But I did ride three more of my bikes. The Necro-Pug was pressed into service for the Saturday coffee-outside ride, the Soma ES took to the road on Sunday, and the VO Polyvalent finally returned to commuting duty on Monday.

The first and last of these largely came about because the Devil has finally reached a point where a full overhaul is necessary. There’s a stuck rear brake caliper, a rumbling bottom bracket, and the headset probably needs new bearings too. Not to mention a good cleaning, fresh brake pads and cables, a new chain, and a longer stem.

30 Days of Biking–Week One

Week one of the 30 Days of Biking is now complete, and I have indeed cycled each of the first seven days.

My initial intentions–some of which might still be realized–were to ride each of the 30 days, ride each of my bicycles at least once, take at least one photo per day and post it on Instagram.

To date, I’ve ridden every day–but I’ve only ridden one of my too-many bikes, and I’ve already missed a few days of photography and ‘gramming.

I’ll just have to do better from here on out.

The View from Here

Of late, when I stop at the market on the way home from work (sometimes after I’ve taken the long way home), I’ll pull up in a park near the market and sit on my favorite bench.

These past few weeks, I’ve been watching the ice recede. You can see what’s left of it: it’s the darker blue band on the far shore. The lake is still about half-iced.

Sometimes I’ll have a snack, freshly purchased at the market. Or I’ll just sit and look at the water and the sky.

It’s the view from here.

Stuff Still for Sale

I’m still trying to reduce the overall stock of the bike cave. As such, there are still a few things for sale. Some I’ll ship for a reasonable fee, other things are better purchased locally. Feel free to inquire about more photos or shipping, even if the CL listing reads local-only.
