Probicycle has started a gallery of utility cyclists. "Getting a little chafed by the galleries of our shaved-leg cousins? Relief is on the way. ProBicycle is creating a new section which will feature the real two-wheel heroes: commuters and utility cyclists." If you're female or if you're "colorful" enough, you get one of their groovy cool "Same Roads Same Rights Same Rules" stickers in exchange for your photo and your story. Via Cafiend @ Citizen Rider.

Speaking of Citizen Rider, you really should check out his blog. He only has a handful of subscribers but he has some very nice content.

CONTEST: $50 Prize!

This one is hard so it's worth some money, but watch this blog over the next week and you might get lucky! The first person who snaps a photo of me on a bike, posts it on the web somewhere and and successfully notifies me and points to the photo wins a $50 Amazon gift certificate. Finding and identifying me: In California, I generally ride a trashy looking red and white Centurion fixed gear steel bike during commute hours. There are two white LEDs on the handlebars, a small LED headlight on my helmet, and a big 10 LED red light on a seatstay. I also have a yellow xenon strobe on my small Timbuk2 messenger bag. I don't usually wear lycra.

I usually commute between Cupertino and Menlo Park, usually down Stevens Creek, Stelling, Hollenbeck, Evelyn, Central, Rengstorff, Middlefield, Willow. Sometimes I go down Stevens Creek, Foothills, Page Mill, El Camino Real, California, Bryant through Palo Alto to Willow in Menlo Park. There can be significant variation. If I ride Caltrain I ride from Palo Alto to either Mountain View or Sunnyvale. Buses I sometimes ride are Dumbarton Express, 522, 22, or 54.

I will be in Longmont, Colorado over Memorial Day. I don't know how much bike riding I'll get in, but if I ride I will post my schedule on this blog so stay tuned.

Here's how you might find me Tonight (Tuesday): I will ride begining at about 7:45 p.m. and ride a meandering path across Palo Alto on Bryant, up Meadow Road under Hwy 101, along the Bay trails to Stevens Creek Trail to Grant Road to Foothills to Steven Creek Blvd into Cupertino. I expect to be in Cupertino at about 9 p.m. Good luck!

Will you be passing my Central New Jersey at all? If so, I will have my camera ready.
