Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#584) and why I like to shop with a box…

On the bike: a gym bag full of wet clothes, and a box containing $49.99 in groceries. So when you are on a bike and grocery shopping you have to get creative…even if it is a cargo bike. I find the best way (for me) is to strap a box or boxes on the bike,Continue reading “Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#584) and why I like to shop with a box…”

Playing with light (or the light is playing with me…or the incredible view from my handlebars)…

A couple weeks ago I rode out to the tip of Bird Island Pier in the Niagara River during the daytime and during an unexpected fog (click here to see those photos). And tonight–being determined to teach myself all the manual controls of my DSLR camera–I rode back out as the sun set to snapContinue reading “Playing with light (or the light is playing with me…or the incredible view from my handlebars)…”

Things that can be Carried on a Bike (#583)…

A book bag containing–among other things–three books, a camera bag with a dslr camera and an extra lens, a tripod, six larger interlocking terracotta tiles (geeze o’ man were these things heavy), and three plastic buckets with lids. Urban Simplicity.

A tomb, a hawk, some geese, a lot of statues, nested eggs, and a few other things I saw on a Good Friday’s ride (and a few words, too)…

Okay, so a couple things. Firstly, I apologize because this is probably way more pictures than you care to look at on a blog. But I just couldn’t choose so I thought I’d load a bunch. Anyhow, today of course was Good Friday. And you probably gather by now that I am not a literalistContinue reading “A tomb, a hawk, some geese, a lot of statues, nested eggs, and a few other things I saw on a Good Friday’s ride (and a few words, too)…”

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#582), and a few other things I often carry but don’t usually mention…

On the bike…a camera bag and book bag (wrapped in a plastic bag because it had just begun raining), and 108 copies of Gourmet Magazine in hardcover bindings (on their way to a local used book store). Something I have mentioned in the past but don’t often mention these days is my bike(s) as aContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#582), and a few other things I often carry but don’t usually mention…”

A few photos from a mini-excursion (or, a few things I saw while riding my bike today)

After I left work today, and wanting to enjoy the rest of this beautiful spring day, I rode my bike to Broderick Park and Bird Island Pier. The park itself is interesting because it played a somewhat major role in the underground railroad. Situated on the shore of the Niagara River where it meets LakeContinue reading “A few photos from a mini-excursion (or, a few things I saw while riding my bike today)”
