I haven’t been blogging much lately. I’ve been too busy bicycling! HA! Summer is excellent.
Today many friends departed for far lands on bikes and I’d like to say goodbye.
Aden and Trevor took off for Colorado – Trevor for good, and Aden – well because Aden’s crazy and touring for the sake of touring. Crazy in a good way. Goodbye Trevor, you crazy fuck:
and his trike…
And goodbye Aden (this is my favorite picture of her) taken by yours truly.
Tomorrow Nova and the Ride Green / Build Green crew rolls for San Francisco. Goodbye Nova!
Last week my check came from the insurance company for the bus accident finally. $3200! Woot!
Long Haul Trucker Motherfuckers here I come!
Oh, speaking of, this was taken at the annual bike-in where we hung around Cal Anderson park, listened to bands and watched movies in this big biking extravaganza. One was a cool (if slightly boring) documentary on some intense bike race in France in 1976, largely over cobblestones (not the Tour De France). One of the personally interesting things about the film was a moment when they’re panning over this French villa on the morning of April 11 – so it was the day I was being born.
This summer has been so busy. Jeez. Dead Baby downhill race is coming. Crap, I gotta make a separate post for that.
I have to go to bed. Last pic from Tuesdays bike stop at Bens house, from left to right Courtney (visiting from Austin TX), Nova, and Trevor.
