Every month is bike month.
And every day is bike to work day.

At some point last year
the apathy of others
killed my motivation.
I came to realize that:
just because you have a bike "event",
doesn't mean that cyclists will show up,
or care.
No matter how accommodating
you try to be.

Unless some highspeed lightrail
pops up over night,
and gas goes to $8 a gallon,
I'm not placing any bets on 'change'.

But I did do an interview for
The Business Journal on,
what I'm know for,
the Token Bike Commuter.

We'll see how it went.
I tend to say really stupid shit.
Those people who still call me
their friend,
must have a judgement deficit.
Or be easily amused.

was a Bike Safety class for Pre K
and second graders at the elementary
school. Best described as trying to
give kittens a bath, after feeding them
sugar. Doubt there's a way to measure
any success with it. For the 80 second
graders I resorted to the secret stash
of blinkies in the messenger bag.

Some kids were psyched.

Sure some teachers were not.

And it's off to work.
