I’ll be encouraging bicycles as transportation at lunch today during an Earth Day event at my job. Interest was fairly high last year; it should be interesting to see what happens this year.
Zero Per Gallon: I saw gas priced at $4.05 for regular in Palo Alto and Menlo Park this morning. While I was stopped at a light this morning a pair of wild women in the Jeep Cherokee next to me started shouting at me. “I LOVE your sticker! Zero dollar gas! WAY TO GO! Woooooo!” I think they might also have been attracted to my Chrome cycling knickers. They come with some wicking padding in the seat so I tried wearing them commando today. It doesn’t work; I need more support than they provide.
The Magic Kingdom: Every other bike blog’s gonna mention it, so I might as well jump on the bandwagon about this news that Denmark is The Happiest Place On Earth, as long as you don’t dress funny, look funny, and talk funny (like the old B’nai B’rith radio spot used to say).
Sea Otter: Rich Kelly was at Sea Otter and he posted several good videos to Interbike Times. I have video of Rich doing unmentionable things with Arleigh’s new handlebar which I’ll try to post in the near future.
The Bike Nazi gets all holier than thou in this Earth Day editorial.
I have a bunch of giveaways (including a turn signal, Sue) coming up so stay tuned. Have a happy Earth Day, all!
