bicycle = style = art

Bicycle art belongs here. Prepare to be mesmerized.

Sorry for the silence lately, bikey peeps. I have been celebrating the holidays with friends and family. Been an intense year, I'm sure some of you know what I mean.

I've also been really obsessed with crafts, for example - these Jedi snowflakes.




Sometimes there's more to life than riding a bike!

Feel the force in 2012!

Hot Dudes on Bikes: Bike Biodiversity (part deux)

The Bike makes the Man. It's the evolution of our species, and many would argue, the key to our survival.

Homo sapiens
come in all shapes and sizes. And thus should our tools of mobility.

It's Bike Biodiversity (2/2).

Vogue Around The Globe: Bike Biodiversity (part un)

The sign of a healthy movement is the strength of its diversity from within. This one word - vogue - does not represent one particular style. It does not dictate how you look and how you ride. The way you decide to carry yourself is purely up to you, no matter where you live on this earth, what kind of bike you ride, how fast or slow you ride it, what you put on your body, or your head. This blog is here to honor the rich beauty of our differences.

Part 1 of this edition of Vogue Around The Globe brings you Bike Biodiversity from different corners of our planet, focusing on women (tomorrow we'll bring on the hot dudes - promise).

the bike gals pose for a pic

Here we are at SFBC Winterfest, Adrienne, Melyssa and I re-enacting how we've managed to maintain these bike blogs over the years. We bike. We take pics. We have fun.

Got it?

Ride on!

Not much difference in the seasons here between fall and winter here in Cali.

If you're in SF, hope this terrible wind doesn't knock you over. :-)
