A bike-centric post for National Bike Month (and week)

So as many of you know, May is National Bike Month, and this week is National Bike Week. And over the past week or so I have been seeing a fair amount of bike activity. The biggest being that there are tons of people on bikes with the warm weather upon us (I just wishContinue reading “A bike-centric post for National Bike Month (and week)”

One Last Ride…

If you’ve visited this blog before then you know my interest in bicycles as not just a vehicle from which to get from point A to point B (though for this they are extremely useful) but also as human powered machines that do things.

This, I think, is really interesting. A work bicycle of yesterday being built again for today. I originally came across this at Bike Hugger, and apparently it is being built for Nella Cutlery by Winter Bicycles. I’m old enough to remember–when I was a little boy–the vegetable hucksters coming around (by truck not bike) andContinue reading “L’Arrotino (The Grinder Bike)”
