Thanks to G+ I ran across a great site today on bike commuting.  The fellow’s name is Peter, he lives in the UK, and has one of the best practical assessments of commuting by bike I’ve seen.  Great resource for those thinking of commuting by bike, and for…

4,291.3 miles– shooting for 5,000 in 2015.  This coupled with a vehicle that burns biodiesel allows me to burn very little fossil fuel for my transportation needs.

I was hit by a car today in an infamous 'Right-Hook'

Don’t worry, it’s just a flesh wound, actually just a rap on the knuckles of my left hand.  I have been using a bicycle seriously for transportation for 25 years or so and this is the first time I remember ever being hit by a vehicle, so I thank all of…

I had to do a little research.  When I'm driving I always worry about hitting a cyclist when I have to turn right passing over a cycling lane.  It was hard work to find the rules governing expected vehicle behaviour for Vancouver (which is a problem in and of itself.  They are more complicated than the California ones as you may or may not move into the cycling lane depending on how it is marked: http://drivesmartbc.ca/cycling/right-turns-over-cycle-lanes

While searching, I found this article on how the Dutch design cycling lanes: http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2014/03/vancouver-needs-follow-dutch-way-bike-lane-design/

It seems like a much safer design.

Sorry to not post updates of the house for a while.  I did in fact move in– the house passed final building inspection on Christmas Eve, so I got a nice little Christmas present this year…                                       […]

Super quick post.  I am supposed to move in next week but there’s a lot to finish.  Here’s a quick progress pic- woodstove and range hood installed, floor painted, bar stained black!

Story
Introduction
I live in coastal Humboldt County, Northern California near the border with Oregon, and I enjoy traveling throughout California, Latin America, and Western Europe, especially Spain. I use Google+ primarily to post photos of my local area and travels, and to follow photographers and other interesting folks who post theirs.  I have no formal training in photography, but enjoy spending time walking this world with a camera in hand.  I hope you enjoy my photos.
Bragging rights
I bike commute over 4000 miles per year, mostly along a 28 mile round-trip route that includes the Hammond Trail in Humboldt Co., CA.
