San Jose Raven Bikes to deploy during the Great American Cleanup Celebration

Joe Tate bought 8 of these trash collection bikes from Henry Cutler (the Workcycles guy) and imported them from the Netherlands.  They've seen heavy use and have made volunteer trash pickup cool in Silicon Valley.

Authentic Craigslist post from SFPD Bike Theft Unit

"We have bait bikes deployed all over the city. Our bikes have trackers. You steal our bikes and we will definitely come for them.

"If you think the bike you are selling on craigslist is stolen, then it probably is. Guess what, you are subject to felony arrest if/when we find you. Jail is waiting and your face will be all over social media.

Sincerely, SFPD Bike Theft Unit"

I picked this up on the shoulder of Highway 17 this morning. Does anybody want a current license plate for some shenanigans?

A Bike Train HOWTO: What's your story?

Commuter bike trains are regularly schedule group bike rides with a commute focus.

I'm writing an article about starting and leading a commuter bike train. I've heard from the organizers of LA Bike Train, San Diego Bike Train, NYC Bike Train, SF2G, and a Boulder-to-Longmont group commute.

If you lead or participate in a regular group commute, I'd love to hear from you and share your story with the world.  If you're interested in starting a bike train, what are your questions?  Go!

+Dean Reimer yeah that would make it harder. I guess what I mean is, your city or town's infrastructure will dictate whether a train is viable. We have only a handful of routes so it's more likely.

I've been home 5 hours, getting ready for bed and just noticed my right pant leg is still rolled up. I'm such a dork.

I've done that. I tend to tuck my pantleg into my sock tho.  Did it for the ride in to work.  at 4PM co-worker commented on my tuck style.

I've learned to not care what others think. If they don't ride (which no one else in my office does) they can sod off with their opinions on riding.

$90 frame

Wasn't somebody around here looking for a frame to build up as a commuter? Here's a great candidate if it's still available.
Been meaning to do this for a while.  There are a few things that have been hanging around (literally) a bit too long.  It's time to clear them out and make room for other stuff.  First up on the chopping block is a Redline C...

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.
