“[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

$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).

On the bike… two 8′ boards, a new log rack, a tripod, a camera bag, a smoke detector, duct tape, and 3 liters of red wine.
I had to go the the big box hardware store today, which is about 4.5 miles from my house, so I brought my camera to make it more interesting. Sometimes it’s not so much about the destination as it is the journey. At least that’s what I’ve read. Anyhow the photos below are as follows. The building below is where Spot Coffee is located, the photo isn’t so much abut that building or business as it it the billboard located on it’s roof. Next is the Church of the Assumption in the Black Rock neighborhood of Buffalo (as seen from an overpass). Below that is the iconic HH Richardson Towers (also known as the Buffalo Psych Center). Next is Colonial Circle. Then a random railroad track photo. And finally, the view of the evening autumn sky from my front porch, shorty after arriving home. I haven’t made it to the gym in more than a week for a few reasons, but today I road probably 12 miles on a really heavy bike into the wind while loaded with a few things. I was huffing and puffing. And now I am tired 😉
