This one maybe deserves a redo.  Demonstrating that hard braking with the front brakes isn't an automatic header.

RIP Nebula the cat

I saw a young woman on a bike stop here this morning and kind of wondered what was up.

Riding back this afternoon I see this memorial for Nebula. There's a drawing of a cat in a place that looks like cat heaven under one of the rocks.

Somebody put a lot of time and thought into this.

Seen under the Hedding Street Bridge over the Guadalupe River Trail.

It sounds like one of your dreams, a little weird, a little beautiful.

+Leon Shaner Now that you mention it... I'm trying to think of the use case where a Santa Cruz resident brings his bike to work like this on the corporate employee bus. The bikes these guys loaded aren't suited for the trip from Cupertino to Santa Cruz.

An American commuter bike with integrated dynamo lights

What a concept.   MSRP $2200 for a Made-In-Portland-Oregon alloy frame bike with Gates belt drive, 3 speed hub, mechanical disk brakes, fenders, no rack or basket.

Sorry. A commuter bike with no rain fenders--made in Portland?? Hard to take seriously.

This two year old post was the most clicked page on my website yesterday. No idea where the links came from.
Bring this to your next S24O: The "Midget Bushtrekka" from Kamp-Rite is a bike trailer that contains a pop-up camper. This bike trailer... ...pops up into a 90"L x 32"W x 40"H tent! That's enough room for the single touring cyclist and mighty snug spoonin

Nobel Prize winning novelist Gabo Garcia Marquez wrote about the plague of scofflaw cyclists in 1955.
 
Garbriel Garcia Marquez (RIP) complained about scofflaw cyclists in 1955,

Back when the recently deceased Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez was a journalist for El Espectador in 1955, he reported on the scofflaw cyclists who endangered ordinary citizens.

Bragging rights
When I was 14 I wrote a single pass 6502 assembler in Atari BASIC (yes, really). In college, while my peers had modern 286 PCs for their assignments, I had a hand-me-down Heathkit 8086; I rewrote the BIOS so it would be PC compatible enough to run MS-DOS 3.0, Wordstar, Lotus 123, and Borland's Turbo C IDE. Everything since then is a corporate trade secret.

The menu is your basic American Chinese food and the quality can be uneven but Mary is super friendly and all meals are cooked to order. A favorite in 95066.
