winter timez


I don't really know snow, but i love the idea of bikes in snow. calm, crisp, bright, quiet, riding in snow. Here are two fave photos from Flat Black 66 and Amsterdamize.

Let's take a trip down Townsend

I am really glad there's a new bike lane on Townsend, it's good for so many things.
P1070782
Like unloading your car
P1070783
It's a great place to take a break from driving your taxi to chat with a colleague
P1070784
I mean it's really great for unloading your car
P1070785
oh hai, don't worry if the lot is full you can park your Prius in the bike lane
P1070787
FedEx loves this bike lane
P1070789
where else to line up for a right hand turn or back into a parking space?
P1070790
UPS also love this lane and it's a terrific spot to double park a Mercedes
P1070792
doubles as a loading dock
P1070793
buses in, buses out
P1070794
no need to pull to the right to drop off your fare, that's what the bike lane is for
P1070795
it's a good place for a stroll
P1070796
good for pulling out
P1070797
good for pulling in
P1070500
and it's for bikes too! this scenario is much better than before the bike lane, I assure you.

the taco bike on serious eats

thanks to a special friend (u know who you are, ms. g) i started using the google reader to keep track of all my favorite blogs.  I recently added serious eats to my feed after finding this nice recipe for Red Braised Turkey Gizzards and just when I was thinking I should remove serious eats because they post more content than my brain can process, i came across a feature on the taco bike.  bikes and food are two of my favorite things (I also like basura). I've decided there is serious value in serious eats, so it stays. Taco bike sound and look familiar?  Yes it does, you've seen me on this bike before.   Read full TacoBike post here.
