At one point, yes, the whaling town referenced in Melville's Moby Dick.

Trophy Bikes in Philly just dropped off a Brompton for us to demo in the office.  We will be using it to show that riding a bike and transit is a great way to commute.  

I can't wait to pedal this little fella around, it looks pretty fun!

I had a wonderful morning today. After having a great breakfast, the wife and I headed to the Legacy Trail to get in a ride.

The bikes were hybrids in desperate need of a tune up, each with a saddle the size of a toilet seat. After about 45 minutes, we turned back to the cars for a total mileage of about 13 miles in 1.5 hours.

To rid our butts of the discomfort of ill fitting saddles, we stopped for strong daiquiris and fresh fish sandwiches. We spent the afternoon at the beach.

All this, while friends and family back home are bracing for a foot of snow.

Suckers.

After spending the weekend with views like this, sitting in an office staring at a computer screen is both cruel and unusual punishment.

I met the most interesting couple this weekend. To surprise her husband on his 40th birthday, she wanted to get him a bike. Knowing nothing about bikes, she decided a Surly Cross Check would be cool. She purchased the bike at Harris Cyclery.

This woman unknowingly purchased one of the coolest bikes on the market from the mecca of bicycle shops.

My wife and I recently relocated to the South Coast of MA from the Philadelphia region.  Today was our first ride, and it was such a refreshing change.  Gone are the hills, high traffic roads, and poor pavement.  Now, we get to ride along the beach, with ocean views and salt air.  

Felt good to get out.

Tip to marketing professionals: Anyone who "claims" to know what the millenial generation wants, does, thinks, or needs: does not know what they are talking about.

Sure they do. The majority of millennials are branded from head to toe, and that includes the mind.

"Beyond the statistics, the personalities of the respondents often emerged forcefully in their responses"

And isn't that generally true of cyclists?  This research looks at the combination of bicycle and transit trips.

Alright bike historians/mechanics. What is the function of this profusion? found on a mid 80's Kuwahara Carrera UL with Tange Infinity tubing.

this will be my first tear down and rebuild. I plan for this one to be the commuting bike.

The revolution will not be motorized. Welcome to the new America.
Introduction
I never stop learning, and I am always searching for new perspectives.  I enjoy biking, walking, and not driving a car (despite having to use one daily).  Walking to work would be the pinnacle of success for me.

I post about bicycle advocacy, transportation systems that focus on people, land use reforms, and how we can transform the future into a more livable, human scaled environment.
