Archive for A Picture (or Video) Is Worth 1,000 Words
Video pretty much sums it up. Sharing is karma–pass it along!
When I say “bikes” or “transit” or “walking” the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials may not be the first organization that springs to mind. But each year they sponsor a “Faces of Transportation” photo contest and this year’s themes provide plenty of scope to capture pictures of active transportation. Building the Future: [...]
I’m not really the manifesto type but this video by Holstee says it all. Sharing is karma–pass it along!
I try to be an ambassador from the friendly biking nation when I ride. Since throwing a hissy fit or flipping off a driver probably just confirms their existing opinion of people on bikes (since of course we are all 100% identical, unlike those unique individuals behind the wheel), I figure I’m helping a little [...]
Even though the title on this post is a big “duh!” for those of us who ride, other may not be aware of some of the benefits. This infographic has been making the rounds and I thought it was worth sharing. Created by: Healthcare Management Degree Sharing is karma–pass it along!
I have yet to venture forth for any “adventure cycling” beyond Tour des Lacs a few years ago and the adventure that awaits when we go bikespeditioning for treats and shopping, but I can’t wait to see the beautiful photos that will be submitted to the upcoming 3rd Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest from Adventure [...]

Who can start something new when snow blankets the ground, we start and end our days in darkness, and all we can think of is hot cocoa, snuggly blankets, and a crackling fire? September, on the other hand, is the back-to-school season. To me this [...]
The quest I’ve been on for some time now isn’t nearly as neat and tidy as this Google Search Story suggests. (They only let you put in 6 or 7 search terms and I used a lot more!) It all started innocently enough: I just wanted to find some good-looking pants suitable for Chamber of [...]
You’ve seen them at stoplights: those guys (always guys so far in my own experience) doing a track stand. They’re standing up on their pedals and the bike is basically standing still without falling over. Or they’re doing little hops to keep it upright while accomplishing the really essential task of never setting a foot [...]
In September 2010 I participated in the first-ever Ignite Spokane (“Enlighten us–but make it quick”), which had the theme “Ideas that Will Save the World.” For those not familiar with the format, you have 5 minutes and can show 20 slides that must advance automatically. No losing your place! And yes, I biked to the [...]
