#30DaysofBiking: Halfway Mark Plus One

30 Days of Biking is going swimmingly this year — or is that a mixed metaphor of sorts? I’ve been on my bike every day so far and putting in lots of miles. I traveled for several days but it was for bike events so that made it easy to keep going. Here’s the round-up […]

#30DaysofBiking, #30words, #30pix

In the major leagues batting .500 would be worth millions. In 30 Days of Biking, it means I didn’t get on my bike every single day in some of my attempts in the past couple of years since I heard of the event and started signing up. That’s okay, because some things really are bigger […]

Every Bike Picture Tells a Story

On any given day your bike and accessories tell some kind of story about you, your riding, and your community. Here’s one snapshot. This fun bike rack is in the street (taking up–gasp!–a car parking spot!) in front of Kaffee Klatsch, the German bakery/coffee shop on Lake City Way near our neighborhood. Since I ride […]

If Bikes Were Cars and Cyclists Were Drivers

Picture It: Faces of Transportation Photo Contest

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: […]

A Life Manifesto on a Bike

I’m not really the manifesto type but this video by Holstee says it all. Sharing is karma–pass it along!

Miss Manners Would Approve: Dealing with Drivers

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 […]

Biking Is Good for Us: An Infographic “Duh”

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!

Capturing Bike Beauty and Inspiration: Adventure Cycling’s Bike Travel Photo Contest

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 […]

Getting Married in Bike Style (A Blogspedition)

Today’s post is in honor of Eldest Daughter (my baby!), who at the tender age of 20 years old gets married today to her “Love Bear.” In advance of dissolving in tears in my mother-of-the-bride dress (which I shopped for during 30 Days of Biking), I did a few searches for bicycle wedding images and […]

Why We Ride/Resolve to Ride—A Blogspedition

New Year’s resolutions come at the wrong time of year. 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 […]
