Your 2nd #Cabal Brendan shot of the day.

Just another commute home in paradise-- the mouth of the Mad River emptying into the Pacific Ocean for background.

+Marjolein Schat and others might enjoy seeing the new girl in my life, #nowmydog Donna, named after my mentor Donna Haraway, who has written on all sorts of human-animal comminglings and would no doubt enjoy being the namesake for a dog.

Always nice to see new uses of the bicycle for transportation.

I'm liking a lot of what they did here.
 
You Don’t Need to Plug in This Fancy Bike for Its Battery to Charge

Cool, rechargeable, LED lit bike!

"The LEDs are built into the fork and the top tube, and the bike features a 96 decibel (aka really freaking loud) horn and a 2.4-inch touchscreen mounted to the handlebar stem. A 10,000 mAh battery stashed in the handlebars provides the juice, and a frictionless dynamo front hub lets you roll your way to a charged battery."

The Volata comes with all the bike accessories you need built in. And you'll pay dearly for them all.

These sorts of bikes never seem to be designed by people who ride bikes. Why a screen when you have a phone? Rack and fenders? Lights are more effective when higher than the fork, and I'm doubtful that those would illuminate the road.

An unusual but very welcome July storm comes in this evening. Call me a weenie, but I'm not going to #rule9 it tomorrow-- the truck needs fuel for the first time in 4 months, so I'm going to drive into town, run a bunch of errands, and go to a baseball game in the evening.

I love riding my bike to work.

Annemiek van Vleuten suffered three fractured vertebrae and a concussion after a horrifying high-speed crash in the Olympic women's road race on Sunday but the Dutch rider said she will be fine and was more disappointed at missing out on a medal.

The motor vehicle-terrorism connection.
Not to get too heavy on a Monday morning, but the following tweets appeared side-by-side in my Twitter timeline over the weekend and it's been on my mind ever since: Thought-provoking juxtaposition. pic.twitter.com/ZBlJSKva...

Love the jersey. The sizing guidance was spot on (large club cut for me). Thanks!

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 5000 miles per year, mostly along a 14 mi (one-way) section of the Pacific Coast Bike Route that includes the Hammond Trail in Humboldt Co., CA.
