I just bought this Ohio t-shirt from HOMAGE.
I was pointed to this by fellow ohioan Ali, who recently gave me a shout-out for pointing her towards campfire goods, a couple of t-shirt guys in akron, with a ton of midwest-themed clothing — I have their midwesterner tshirt.
I’m a sucker for any bicycle-themed or ohio-themed piece of clothing.
Man, if someone were to come out with some sort of “I Bicycle in Ohio” t-shirt, I think I might instantaneously combust with excitement.
The folks at Gothamist are in love with this trailer… and after watching it, it makes me wanna jet off to nyc with my bike. Fun fun fun..
This reminds me… a few years back, there was this trailer I saw at the Opera Plaza Cinemas for some bicycle movie… I think it was set in New York as well (so it’s not MASH or Macaframa), and the trailer ended with a shot of a cyclist slamming an opening taxi door shut to avoid getting doored..
From those guys at MASH.. Here’s them in Austin with noneother than… Lance Armstrong. Awesome. That said, the one I found on YouTube isn’t as high quality as the one on the MASH video page, but I can’t seem to embed that one… lame.
Bikes make me happy.
Dana organized another bike trip down to the pigeon point lighthouse last weekend and it was awesome… This year, I biked down the first day and the sagged it back the 2nd… I think I could have ridden back, but yah, I guess I felt a little lazy. And besides, I’m doing boot camp like four days a week now, so I don’t feel like a total schlep. The ride was awesome. Friday rained enough to cancel my regularly scheduled baseball game on Saturday (which I was quietly happy about, since I couldn’t go), so I was a little worried about the weather for the weekend. But, the weather was absolutely gorgeous the whole weekend.
We met in the morning at the panhandle to start the ride, and headed through the park to ocean beach. The waves were awesome… like huge and breaking magnificently our entire ride down the coast. The route took us through Daly City, past devil’s slide to Half Moon Bay.. From there, we continued down the 1, stopping in San Gregorio for a beer, and then up and over stage road to Pescadero for lunch. We rolled into the hostel in the afternoon, and settled in for a relaxing evening. It was awesome.. The ride wasn’t too bad, about 60 miles, with “rolling hills” as Davin liked to call them. Yah.. California is awesome sometimes.
All pictures from everyone are being gathered here. Good times.
I submitted my bike to fixedgeargallery — where I was bike #4,999 — soooo close to the 5,000th bike, who won a t-shirt.. (dangit!!). Anyway, this weekend the New York Times published an article all about the fixie phenomenon that is apparently all over Brooklyn right now…
Beep! Beep! It’s the hipster highway!
For real though… I *love* riding the fixie around the city. It’s been my regular ride around town for a few years now, and honestly, nothing beats the feeling of zipping around traffic with your feet solidly connected to the wheels. Some say, it’s transcendental.
