Hottie on Hot Wheels - This Is How Toronto Does It.

IMG_5986 no standing

Extremely sorry for the lack of posting lately. I have been overloaded with work. Even though I would like to be superwoman, I fear I am not [yet]. In the meantime, this hottie on hot-wheels from my recent trip to Toronto should hold your attention for quite some time.




Two Female Cyclists from Sweden Out to Save the World

The Invisible Bicycle Helmet | Fredrik Gertten from Focus Forward Films on Vimeo.

This invisible helmet has crossed my path a few times over the last couple months. Am I for it or against it? I normally don't wear a helmet because I believe that safety truly comes in numbers and not what you choose to put on your head. I also believe that North American cyclists deserve a safer bike infrastructure, more than we need a new and improved head device. Seriously speaking, the onus should be on lawmakers and planners to build better bikeways for everyone, from child to senior citizen, in every neighborhood.

I do, however, appreciate the Swedish attitude: "Cars are so yesterday. Bikes are the future."

What do you think of the invisible helmet?


In Praise of Pussy

Since I am at work and missing today's protest at the Russian Embassy in SF, consider this as my virtual Free Pussy Riot Protest, featuring some of my bike gal pals, looking a bit anti-establishmentarian. Ya with me?


Mikaela says "Free the Pussies!"


We ride in solidarity with punk chycks taking a stand against the status quo - with Melyssa and Mikaela.

Wherever you live, wherever you go, I firmly believe we are entitled to our freedom of expression.

Whether in the United States, or in Russia.

Ride on Riot Grrls... in solidarity!

For this 40 second act of political protest, the three members of the Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison.

For more information about the verdict, check out this report from the Guardian.

And if you go out on the streets to protest this injustice, be careful out there.
