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

food haul

catering again panda This is a shot of me riding my schwinn cycle truck, cargo bike. I was catering some kind of something and had a couple gallons of herb infused iced teas and a lunch for 10 or so people.
P1050216I brought all the food on this table
and these drinks. The vintage grolsch bottle contains salad dressing.
nom nom.

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.
