Took a different route to work than my usual (followed a co-worker's route), and discovered that there's a free repair stand some awesome resident seems to have put together.

+Ben Folsom There's some notes that indicate to me that it may have been vandalized and then fixed a few times.
"Please do not vandalize the bike stand. I put it here for everyone to use. Happy many families kids & young adults, etc are doing so!"
"_Nobody_ can use this now. If you had stolen it at least you would be using it!"

In Boston, a new program empowers doctors to give low-income patients a cheap bike-share membership.

Today feels like a good day to brew a beer.

Not a brewer, but I do recognize some of those flavors. Looks like a nice crisp, and slightly fruity concoction, AKA delicious. Good luck!

Over 20 years ago, my New Years Resolution was to not make any New Years Resolutions, and I've kept that resolution quite well since then. I think it's finally time to break that resolution.
Most new years resolutions don't work because they are vague ("get more organized"); don't translate into specific action very well ("lose X pounds"); are often contrary to our unconscious resolutions (things you don't really want to do); and/or because real resolve happens when you realize a problem exists and must be changed, not an arbitrary calendar rollover. All that and more is why I chose not to make resolutions.
With all that in mind, for 2014 I resolve:
(1) I will ride 100 miles in a day by my 40th birthday (mid-July)
(2) I will keep track of (log) some basic health metric data (weight and blood pressure)
For the first: I'll set some intermediate goals with specific dates. I'm hoping some of my bike-riding friends can help me with the training ride. It's all just some arbitrary numbers, really, but it seems like a quite doable goal with a bit of training. Heck, I think some of the 50-70 mile rides I've done have been harder than a flat 100 mile ride would be...
For the second: I figure tracking the information is good motivation for improving the numbers. Actually losing some fat is the real main goal, but that's a vaguer and harder to reach goal that I've already been making progress on. First step: new bathroom scale!
Sharing these resolutions publicly should help motivate me to keep them. Also, I'm hoping some of my cycling friends will help me out with the first resolution by going with me on training rides...

Anybody interested in the ultimate ergonomic keyboard? Nearly impossible to find, expensive when it was available, and only more expensive now. But, seriously, there's really nothing more ergonomic out there...

Introduction
Dear people adding me: If we've never met face-to-face, you don't have any posts I can see, and your 'About' is empty, I'm not going to add you back. I only add people that I know or seem interesting in some way, and I'm likely to add you to a circle based on what I see there...

If you're adding me to a circle you're creating, perhaps you should create the circle empty, share a post to that circle, then add everybody to it, so that there's something for people you're adding to see?

Anyways...

I live in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, Northern California. I ride a bicycle for transportation and recreation. I'm involved in bicycle advocacy, in particular as a member of the board of the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. I'm a linux server system administrator at Sonoma State University. I really like beer and whisky, and even do a bit of homebrewing. I'm into food, especially tasty food and locally grown food. I post most often about bike stuff, but about other things, too.

Have always had a good experience when getting food *there*, but the *to-go* experience is very hit or miss. A few days ago, ordered togo: fried rolls, fresh rolls, beef onion roll noodle bowl, and combo seafood soup with a substitution. The first three things all came fine, but the soup had rice instead of rice noodles and no meat at all. Broth, veggies and rice. Not much of a soup. Everything else tasted quite good, but the whole point of going there was getting the soup. Basically, if you order anything to-go that involves them needing to write down something more complicated than "C7", you'll want to carefully double-check that you're actually getting what you ordered. Personally, I'd rather not deal with that kind of hassle and will be very reluctant to return.

Food is *okay*. There's several better Mexican places nearby. After the second time that eating there gave me an unpleasant digestive experience, I haven't been back, and I plan to never return there. Go to El Rancho Taqueria around the corner, instead. Or Cafe Salsa in downtown Cotati.
