Tucson bike lawyer, regrettably, is in Colorado and won’t make the Tuesday Night Bike Ride this week, but you should.

I am so envious! My friend (and former legal secretary) Lauren stopped by yesterday to show off her new La Suprema longtail and it is just absolutely gorgeous. We rode the Tuesday Night Community Bike Ride together and this morning she and Jarod took off heading east, to Nova Scotia via Florida. [...]Read More..>>
Here is a picture of Gaby, my Mexico City guide, on the ice bike. I had to change my departure time to 10 PM, but the bike was finished and I got it on the bus . . . thanks to lots of further help from Gaby! I never could have accomplished [...]Read More..>>

Bike ride tonight, 8 PM (or a little after . . . .) at the Flagpole at Old Main. Go to Park Ave and [...]
Cyclist on car hood
The whole of bike-blog internetdom is awash in this story about a road raging motorist who first attacked a cyclist (after the cyclist told him to slow down) and then, when the cyclist stood in front of his car to get the plate, drove into him and thence down the road with [...]Read More..>>
Here are two pictures my friend Sarah H. from BICAS sent me of Varo on his tall bike last night. As you might imagine, he’s always a big hit with the spectators.
Varo has lots of cool bikes that he makes himself, including a side-by-side two-seater. I’ll try to get a picture of that [...]Read More..>>
