This week so far

People.  It’s been a good week so far.  I’ve biked to campus the past two days, rather uneventfully I must say, and I ran a couple of errands yesterday.  Here’s my ride from Tuesday.

“There and Back Again: A Cyclist’s Tale.”

Yesterday I biked to campus and back again and ran a few errands after.  Here’s that ride:

The first of the two errands was the package store on Madison and McLean for some vino.  (I do love those bike lanes on Madison, but lately I’ve become much more aware of the likelihood of getting doored.  Got to keep my eyes open.)  The second was to the home of a certain Kyle W. (last name omitted to protect anonymity) to borrow a certain piece of biking hardware, otherwise known as a trailer.

Boo-yah.  Imma haul some sheet today, boyee.  More on my trailer adventures later.

Also, don’t forget about tonight’s Tweed Ride!

two for Tuesday

Just two quick things to mention before I begin my Tuesday.

1.  There’s a Tweed Ride this Thursday (26 January) beginning at 6:00 PM.  The ride meets at the Peddler Bike Shop parking lot and goes to the Brooks Museum of Art for the annual viewing of the Arrows (formerly the British Television Advertising Awards).  I’ve been on several tweed rides before and they are great fun.  Just do a google image search to see what I’m talking about.  Also, the Arrows are immensely entertaining.  You’ll need to buy your own ticket – only $8 – but it will be worth it.  Plan to be there.

2.  Check out this amazing video of a bike parked on a New York street for a full year.  Watch it get stripped!

Be safe and stay warm.  I’ll have more to say later this week.
