Hey folks! Yeah, life has been busy so I haven't posted to here as much as I should. As always, the best day-to-day record of my life can be found on my instagram. With that out of the way, let me talk a bit about my past weekend, from Thursday April 26 through Sunday April... Continue Reading →
Visits with Marc and Grant
Hello friends. Pardon the cobwebs. I haven't really posted in a couple weeks for a couple reasons. The first is that there hasn't been much going on bikewise here. Short days and a five day work week mean little time for fun rides, plus we've had a good spate of wet weather. But more importantly,... Continue Reading →
A visit to Rivendell
I first visited the Bay Area in 1998. I lived there from 2000-1. I visited several times since then. Yet, I had never been to Walnut Creek, a town on the east side of the Oakland/Berkeley Hills, some 15 miles from Oakland. And why should I have? No one I knew lives/lived there, it just...

But there has been a "thaw" as daytime highs are... Continue Reading →

Junk in the front: A personal history with the Basket Bike
When I got the Raleigh Crested Butte, it wasn't with the intention that there would be a basket in the front. It's just the way it turned out. Y'see, if I go too long without a basket bike, I go into withdrawals. I don't realize my need for the basket bike until after I get... Continue Reading →
New bling for the Wayfarer
Why yes, there will be talk about the Crested Butte very soon. But first, some talk about my other Raleigh bike, the Wayfarer! After getting a rebuilt rear wheel and a new Linus rear rack, there was not much else I could do with this lovely bike, so I declared this bike "pretty much done". But... Continue Reading →
