Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There’s something wrong with a society that drives a car to workout in a gym.

On the bike…Eight 6-foot boards of lumber, two new shirts, a new pair of pants, and a camera.

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

Leave a comment

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 wish more of them would follow the rules of the road). Anyhow, I thought I’d post a few random photo representing this. Pictured above are two bikes which are part of the brand new Buffalo Bike Share program…I have been seeing these bikes everywhere. Below are two friendly guys (And I am really sorry that I cannot remember your names) who are offering free breakfast or take-away lunches or coffee from Cafe 59 (in recognition of Bike Week). The chap on the left is from Rick Cycle Shop right across the street, and on the right is from Go Bike Buffalo…thanks guys! The next photo down shows a full “parking lot” at the local JCC (you can see the Mundo in the distance). Next are a couple photos of random bicycle tire sculptures I’ve been seeing around. And the last photo really has nothing to do with bikes other than I pass it everyday while riding one…but I really like it. Anyhow, to quote Freddy Mercury…get on your bikes and ride!
