More links and stuff

People.  I missed the Mayor’s State of the City address on Monday – busy week, you know – but I knew from Kerry at the I Love Memphis blog that there was a highlight video from the speech.  So I finally got around to watching it last week and HOLY CRAP I’m totally in the video.  The video was shot last week – you might remember me mentioning it on the Biking in Memphis facebook page or in my twitter feed.  Good thing I did mention, because the only other cyclist who showed up besides Kyle and me was Ty from the awesome Living Loud in Midtown.  The videographer shot footage of the three of us riding in the bike lanes on Madison, then a long profile shot of me riding.  I have never liked my nose, but I approve of the video.

A combination bike shop and coffee shop?  Yes, please!

Also, my friend Aaron sent me a link to the 2012 Report on Biking and Walking from the Alliance for Biking and Walking.  I haven’t had a chance to read it, but it looks really interesting.

Star Wars biking shirts?  Yes, please!  (h/t Kyle)

My friend Adrian sent me this link about an Atlanta cycling advocate getting hit by a car while riding.  He’s OK, but the article does mention that three-feet laws are not always enough to make roads safe for cyclists.  We also need to educate the people.

Finally, I’ve been meaning to post this map of a commute ride from almost two weeks ago.

It was a good ride.  I biked north from home to Central Animal Hospital to drop off some pet-related stuff – you don’t want to know – then through Tiger Lane, the Beltline community, and finally to campus.  Then I biked home.  I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but it’s been busy up in here.

OK, be safe and stay dry – it’s raining in my corner of Memphis.  See you soon.

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.
