Greetings from beautiful Heflin, Alabama. Â I’m here for the weekend visiting relatives and enjoying a few days of constrained options. Â One of the best parts of spending a few days away from home is the fact that I can’t do much else except read, work on a crossword puzzle, or write. Â All of my work is at home and I have practically no choice but to relax. Â Too bad my bike is at home too.
Anyway, I don’t have much to share with you this week. Â I’ve been gone since Wednesday morning and have barely touched my bike since last week’s Cycle Memphis ride. Â But a friend of mine shared this link with me. Â These are some seriously awesome cargo bikes and the videos are quite entertaining too.
Speaking of cargo bikes, Cort over at Fix Memphis posted this about a new cargo bike the Peddler is “renting” out for interested riders. Â I plan to sign up for a day and write about it.
Also, here’s a flickr set of pictures from the Cycle Memphis ride.
And lastly, the petition to support dedicated bike lanes on Madison has amassed over 1000 signature, four times its original goal of 250. Â Let’s keep spreading the word and show that the momentum is on our side.
One more thing: do you like the band Wilco? Â Do you like bikes? Â Well, here you go.
Have a good weekend, everyone. Â I can’t wait to come home and enjoy the cooler weather.
