So I have felt bad at the lack of posting in the recent weeks. This being the case, I think I’ll start to post more often, but not necessarily with more content. Sounds great huh </sarcasm>. This way, I’ll hopefully post more than you guys comment…though I do love the comments.
You’ve got to understand, that as of late I have been extremely busy. Not just a little busy, but so busy I do not have a free moment other than the time I spend with Jordan…and no offense, but Jordan gets her time before this blog does. But fear not, if I take a little time more often to post short tidbits like this one, maybe things with pick up around here.
Watch this video. It is exactly how I maneuver and manage traffic on my bike in town. It is sage wisdom, and personally I think it is the only way that bicyclists (1) can ride safely in urban sprawl; (2) can effectively assert their rights to the same road; (3) spread the inevitable truth that bikes are here to stay, and will only grow in usage as Americans wise up.
We have such a long way to come here in America. In Europe, bicycles are much more a way of life, even though the majority of the people there are per capita more wealthy than Americans. Bikes aren’t just for the poor, DUIs, or ‘trendy’, they are the most efficient way to transport yourself and everything else you would need within a city. Here is another good video about how bicylce and pedestrian friendly cities promote health, prosperity, and human dignity:
Things to come:
- My most recent proposal for funding
- Awesome beef stew recipe
- Tale of last weekends failed, but very entertaining field work
