Two cardboard boxes…one containing approximately forty dollars in groceries, and the other is a case of red wine. Essentials.

Living car free is possible, and in all weather conditions (dress accordingly and studded snow tires help). Examples (top-to-bottom)…on my way to work in the morning, arriving at my second job, and out for beers in the evening. It is possible.I’m jus’ sayin’.

Tuned and ready…sort of.

Okay. So my winter bike is all tuned up and I even upgraded the rear wheel from a 3-speed to an 8-speed internal. At the first sight of snow the studded snow tires go on it. This will be the third Buffalo winter with this bike (last year was trying to say the least), and it of course replaces my beloved Mule which was nicked from my ex-wife’s garage a few years ago. At any rate, the bike seems ready (just had the new rear wheel and internal 8-speeed put on today and love it) but I’m not sure I am. Last Winter was exhausting. Hopefully this one will be a bit milder.

Things that can be carried on a bike (#573), the view from my handlebars, and a brief comment…

 On the bike…groceries, sundries, dog food, a gym bag, and an order of moo shoo vegetables.

So the weather was just beautiful today and this evening…40F which feels like a heat wave after the past few months. And I was particularly enjoying this sunset as I rode (and pulled of to the side of the road to snap a photo) because the day after tomorrow we are supposed to get another foot of snow. Good thing I still have snow tires on my other bike.

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 can carry it to my bike to myself.

Sales Person: [smiling now, as if I’m teasing him]

Second Sales Person: No he’s serious…he’s “that guy with those bikes.”

Me: [smiling]
