DC needs to be more progressive...




.

say it ain't so...


like taking candy from a baby...

is Someone Stealing "Ghost Bike" Memorials and Selling them on Craigslist?

lots of scaffolding around the city

I am typing words about this person on the bike
telling you that he is a messenger
expressing that he has been a messenger for a long time
making mention that he also volunteers at some bike events hosted by WABA


some wonderfully mod cycling gear

clothing by Road Holland
a wonderful blend of fashion and function

this girl is a Happy Meal!

riding a bike to work is news!


LeBron James beats traffic to the Bulls' game by riding his bike

a flat tire is usually a punctured tube


Marc is no rookie
getting a flat without a tube is a rookie mistake

whether a commuter, mountain bikers, racer, or courier
no matter what sort of cyclist you are... it is vital to carry a few things on each ride
a tube, a pump, and a multi-tool

a flat tire can turn a short ride into a long walk

bummer.

I have never been in a sweat lodge
but I have ridden my bike real hard

Capital Bike Share in the wind


this guy is moving pretty good
but it was pretty much riding rollers in a wind tunnel

funny... just got an email SPAM from an old Clydesdale competitor

Bike Shop Coffee Shop...


although I never really considered it...
I used to daydream about there being a Bicycle Shop-Coffee Shop in DC
a place where people could meet and fuel up before a group ride
a place where people could meet and drink coffee to talk about rides and riding
a place where people could get their bikes fixed as they drink coffee
a place where classic cycling films play year round... with weekly movie nights and weekly urban night rides
where is this places?

not dc
"Bike shop cafes have sprung up in Minneapolis, Portland, and other bike-mad cities in recent years (Portland even has a bike that is a cafe). But few, if any, do triple duty as bike manufacturing facilities."

in Chicago...

Chuck Norris Endorses Newt Gingrich for President

I am open minded...
my vote is not so simple as voting my party

how about this?
if Newt Gingrich can convince all the woman in the United States to allow an open marriage
then I will both endorse and vote for Newt Gingrich
