There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine is drunk.

~M.F.K. Fisher

On the bike: An electric mixer, an 18-year-old sourdough starter, and all the small-wares and ingredients to to have a bread baking class.

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.

~Bill Nye the Science Guy

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

Things that can be carried on a bike (#718 & #719), and a couple words…

#718 (above)…Twenty six framed photos on their way home from a show. Interestingly, in all the times I’ve transported photos to-and-from shows by bike I have only broken the glass on one frame (and it was because of my own carelessness).

#719 (below)…A brand new bike! Yup, I bought another one. A Surly Troll, which I’m pretty excited about. But more on the bike in a later post. What is interesting about this photo is that I am actually towing the bike back to the bike shop as the chain broke on it (after only three days of riding). The chain is repaired but I find it interesting that when I need to carry the big stuff or heavy stuff or long stuff I still go to my decade-old v3 Yuba Mundo. The old work horse.

I haven’t been using the trusty old Mundo v3 that often in recent years as I’ve other options these day, but when I need to haul large or heavy things it’s nice to know it’s still there, and geeze o’ man is it fun to ride.

Anyhow, on the bike: A cardboard box with 8 live vegetable plants, a book, a magazine, an extra front bicycle rack, and a small pile of lumber.

[Commuting by bicycle is] an absolutely essential part of my day. It’s mind-clearing, invigorating. I get to go out and pedal through the countryside in the early morning hours, and see life come back and rejuvenate every day as the sun is coming out.”

~James L. Jones, Barack Obama’s former national security advisor


On the bike: 47 framed photos of various sizes on their way to a show.

$170 in groceries, sundries, and dog food. Three liters of red wine. And a double order of Chinese take out.

Now if I were the type of person that liked to scrunch words together and put a number symbol in front of them (which of course is also known as a hashtag), I would likely do it to the following phrases… cars are optional, bicycles are vehicles, human powered, be the change you want to see, and freedom (and yes, I am aware the last one is a word and not a phrase but that’s what makes it special I suppose).

Urban Simplicity.
