Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#569)…and a few words

On the bike…a gym bag full of wet clothes, and an order of bean curd and mixed vegetables. With the “big thaw” happening right now (the temperatures finally broke the freezing mark, at least temporarily) it was the first time I have ridden the Yuba in more than a month (because the Torker has theContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#569)…and a few words”

Things that can be carried on a bike (#566), and a brief comment…

On the bike…a case of red wine and a gym bag. A brief dialogue… The Sales Person at the liquor store: Would you like me to carry the case of wine out to your car? Me: No, but you can carry it to my bike. Sales Person: [blank stare] Me: But no seriously I canContinue reading “Things that can be carried on a bike (#566), and a brief comment…”

Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…

These were taken on two separate nights; the top photo last night and the one below tonight. The weather has been pretty much unchanged…bitterly cold and somewhat constant snow.

There is somethingContinue reading “Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…”

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#561)…and a few words

On the bike…a case of red wine, a gym bag full of wet clothes, and about $100 in groceries. A few words…It’s interesting, I think, of some people’s reaction to carrying stuff on a bike. I’m so accustomed to it that I sometimes–often–forget that this is not the norm for mainstream America.
