I changed my profile picture to support a small local bike shop in Canada that is being threatened with a lawsuit by +Specialized Bicycles over a lame trademark issue.

Well, word from the cafe is things are looking up. So I'm gonna put my mug shot back up.

Just wanted to extend an invitation to women to join this safe place for women who enjoy riding bicycles to hang out, kibbitz, get advice, and discuss women specific bicycling issues - from finding clothing that fits right, to women specific bikes, to dealing with stereo types and that time of the month.   All women cyclists are welcome - regardless of religion, race, nationality, shape, style of riding, typical distance covered. If you identify as a woman and ride a bike, you are welcome.

Yeah, I can do that. Thanks for inviting that opportunity, +Adam Pearce .

I've done some carving in my life but never anything ever close to this. This is really an amazing piece.

Marvelous, the things some people can do with their hands. Especially for a guy like me, with two left hands and ten thumbs.

I love my 13.5 mile #bike2work. 
 
Parking this here, because I like to look at it every so often.

Pretty interesting animated graphic of music sales over the last 30 years. It goes by quick, so you have to read fast or watch it several times. (I did.)

Heh. Playing "spot SACD" requires timing to the second.

Dear Motorist

Here at the +Bike Commuter Cabal, we've been approached by a group of cyclists who recently lost a member of their own community to a car-bike-collision and have decided to do something postive. They've asked the Cabal to help with an awareness campaign titled Dear Motorist which is striving to make the roads safer.

They will be launching the campaign in the new year, but in the meantime have asked us to help spread the word that they are gathering cycling/motorist incident articles similar to this one - http://www.smh.com.au/national/cyclist-hit-by-car-challenges-police-over-fine-video-evidence-20130906-2tb68.html - to use as part the campaign. 

Each and every one of you can help. They've set up a Google form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BxKmx8X0E30f-iFZREfvGYGhKVb1LIEdVc-hQQXdzPw/viewform - as you're reading each day, if you come across any related article(s), please take a moment to anonymously submit the link via their form and help in their efforts.

We will keep you posted on further updates to the campaign in the future. Thanks in advance for your help and please feel free to share this amongst your Circles as well.

I enrolled in this long-term CPS-3 study. Today is our local enrollment. They are enrolling people from now until the end of the year. If you are interested in being part of a 20 year cancer prevention study, look to find an enrollment date in your area at cancer.org/cps3

Today I'll go in and they'll take a sample of my blood, I'll fill out another (much shorter) survey, and have my waist measured. The only other prep was filling out a health and habits history. 

You have to be between the ages of 30-65. Once enrolled you simply agree to take a survey every two years. 

Here's an article about today's enrollment locally:

Photography friends, my friend +Jeff Menter created this app. If you don't have it already, you may want it.  If you hurry, I think it's still Free.

Oh! Good to know it's on Android too. Of course I want you to have money for it, but that was cool for you to offer it up for free for a bit. :-)
