Happy Hump Day. I hope you find this collection of stories useful.

Every cycling advocate should read this –> The Travails of a Novice Bike Commuter. I helped a hopelessly lost first time bike commuter last night on the Guadalupe River Trail in San Jose. She’s the fifth person I’ve helped find her way over the past three weeks. Lady Fleur and I are talking about some guerrilla wayfinding signs for the GRT south of Coleman Avenue, where everybody seems to get lost.

Olympic cyclist Joanna Roswell and her hair loss.

Another Peninsula charity ride: the Tour de Menlo takes place this Saturday to raise funds for Rotary Club programs.

Is Latin America the next biking paradise?

Abandoned Art Exhibit.

ADDICT X INSA Girls On Bikes [nudity, sort of]. T-shirts, too.

Ray Lahood blogs about a new bike path through Grand Teton National Park. It’s probably an example of a path we’re required to use under Federal law per the new MAP-21 transportation legislation.

Cycling across America on the old Route 66.

22-year-old student Michaela “Mickey” Shunick disappeared last May while biking home from a friend’s house. Searchers have since found her body after her Schwinn Madison fixed gear bike was located, and have charged a repeat sex offender with the homicide.

Conjoined twins Abby & Brittany ride a bicycle.

Instructables on bicycle commute with a suit.

    The video was pulled from the station website. I did not see any statement from them about why they did so or what action they took regarding what smells like theft by a station employee.
