Parts!!!

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 http://yeahiridelikeagirl.blogspot.com/ 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.
