riding up 15th street the other day, I could hardly believe my eyes. Am I in china (where people carry shit loads of stuff on bikes)? is this guy carrying four new bikes on his bike, plus a hugeous backpack? yes, he was. yes, those were four new PUBLIC bikes. I should have asked him where he was headed, but all I could muster was a photo and, "nice cargo, homey."
A favorite shot from my christmas eve ride with a dear friend to see a dear friend. I never made it to my destination, her majesty's residence, the taj mahovel, as the last ferry to san francisco beckoned just as we drew near, some 20 miles out and after riding for two hours. Another ride fail, but alas no ride is a failure. As for my dear friend whose company I did not grant myself the time to enjoy, I will make it up to you (us).
