I suppose it's a bit late to plan a short bicycle tour, but if you're traveling somewhere for the weekend, consider using a bicycle to get around, especially if you're visiting an urban area. A bicycle is the perfect way to get around the tourist areas of San Francisco, for example.

Frommer's published some gas saving ideas for your vacation: suggesting Vacations by Rail, a couple of bicycle touring outfits, bike rental offers and bus passes through Aspen Snowmass, and pointers to other ideas.

I'm sticking close to home this Memorial Day -- although "home" right now means flying 1000 miles to Colorado so I'm far from being conservationist. After that, though, will be house cleanup, chores, a church picnic this Sunday, and time with my family.

It's worth pointing out that Memorial Day is more than just a three-day weekend marking the start of summer. This day is set aside to remember those who died in the service of their nation. Remember them and their sacrifice.

Yep, remember the reason for the holiday! We are biking down to the local cemetary this weekend.
