Let's see what's in the box...

Why, it's a shiny new Shimano Ultegra drive train!

Check out the beautiful (discontinued) color (the crank, not the hair!).

What are these? Earrings? Is that a DuraAce bottom bracket under my chin?!?!

Bang bang! (Yes, this is how I spent my tax return).

Extra big thanks to Linda for the photo shoot and installation. Stay tuned for project updates!

I-205 Bridge Path

This is it! In the rain. With traffic. And a cyclist.

It's actually not bad. 3 loud miles that are over quick.

A Ride With The Bicycle Transporation Alliance

About 100 people came out for this 54th Annual New Year's Day Ride. It was very cold. Frigid even.

We took a route showcasing bike route improvements such as the fabulous new bike crossing at Going and 33rd and the still-under-construction "cycle track" on NE Cully. It's a sidewalk, it's a bike lane, it's its own thing!

At last, we arrived at Bike Tires Direct for coffee and cocoa and cookies.
