Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#456), and Two Views from My Handlebars

On the bike…two bottles of red wine and a gym bag containing wet clothes. The views…directly below is a view of Allen and Elmwood, an intersection I usually cross multiple times a day.

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#449) and a couple pictures of snow.

On the bike…a canvas bag containing two books, a camera, and some papers. A paper bag containing various food leftovers.  Western New York got hit with heavy snow today, but not nearly as much as our friends on the eastern seaboard. It wasn’t that cold so the snow was heavy–big heavy flakes–and it stuck toContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#449) and a couple pictures of snow.”

Evening Ride…

For many reasons–mainly a bad cold, then work, snow and frigid temperatures, and most recently being out of town for a few days–I feel like I haven’t ridden much in the past week or so. But tonight it was…at the sake of sounding hokey…such a lovely winter evening for a ride. Nary a breeze inContinue reading “Evening Ride…”

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#445), and the view from my handlebars…

On the bike…a gym bag full of wet clothes and a case of red wine (I get thirsty with all the exercise and biking). Despite the warm colors in the photo below, like much of the northeastern United States and eastern Canada we are still in the grip of a cold-snap.

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#440)…and a quick note

On the bike…a cardboard box and plastic soda crate containing a gym bag full of wet clothes and nearly $70 in groceries (is it just me or have groceries become really expensive in the past year?).

About $30 in groceries, a gym bag full of wet clothes, and two bottles of red wine. It is difficult to tell but the bike is locked to a city-installed bicycle rack which were installed on hundreds of parking meters (and also free-standing) around the city in the past few years. This is awesome…excellent! IContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#437)…and a brief comment”
