Bike

Sunday, August 07, 2011

I don't get this angry at cars when I bike around... But I should.

Bikes on the roof are just funny. :-)

    Cool pictures! I just spent a month in Glendale Arizona. I rode my bike to and from school every day. Great bike trails, and neat sidewalks for riding. Most of the people where quit polite (drivers) and most of the locals had their bikes hung up on their patios....said it was too hot to ride. emoticon

    I've really been envying the bike riders who pass me on my walks lately, don't have a bike,but I wonder if I could ride one after 30 years!

Airship

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Yea the wars pretty much ended their use. Fun to think of though. "What was the original intent for the 102nd floor of NY City's Empire State Building, which is now used for observation purposes since the original industry failed to *take off*?

Your answer: A dirigible terminal

At one time there were gangplanks attached to the top of the building for passengers to use for boarding purposes. This practical use never occurred because the commercial passenger dirigible business never succeeded and the building itself caused a local micro-climate that made mooring the vessels nearly impossible. It would have been quite a sight though." - From Funtrivia.com

  


Bike Parking

Saturday, August 06, 2011

I love this bike joke because it implies many things. If you look closely, it is from the Stanford Daily school. Yes, even Stanford students penny pinch by riding bikes. Yes, even they have bad days and can't remember things well. It's a small world after all.



The caption says "The seconds between when you think your bike is stolen, and when you realize you parked it somewhere else."

Qs

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Best behavior changes on a cultural basis. "If you were 'minding your Ps and Qs', what would you be doing?

Your answer: being on your best behavior

The origin of the saying is not certain, but it is English, and possibly comes from either the printing or licensed trades. It is usually said in the context of reminding small children to be polite, also known as 'minding your manners'." - Funtrivia.com

  


Bike Computer

Friday, August 05, 2011

Are Bike Computers a fad or a forever thing? I have been using a new bike computer to log miles, for the past 60 miles. So far it has been pretty fun.

    Definitely a forever thing for bikers - miles, mph, average speed - all gauges of progress & fitness.
