Sunday July 30 - First Watch

We're off to the Metrocenter First Watch tomorrow. Probably be a smaller crowd than usual. Sort of have an idea for a route. See you at 6:30.

Here's an article about six bike lane projects coming to downtown neigborhoods.

Here's a video of Danny MacAskill's day out. This guy has skillz.



Tip of the hat to Gary for sending me both of these items.

Oncall Blues

Never going to happen...

I've said it before, I'll say it again, there is no way anyone alive today will see a driverless car out on the street.

Oh, there will be places where the technology will work- like parking shuttles at amusement parks, college or business campuses, but never out in the real world, where kids and animals run out in front of you. Where electrical lines and trees come down in storms. Where water mains burst and take out half of a street. The real world. Where we live.

Just read this, about what the "experts" think bikes will need to be in the future.

Never. Going. To. Happen.

July 9 - Wildflower Bread Co

This Sunday we're off to Wildflower Bread Company on Indian School. Would like to figure out a new route to get there, so I'll put my thinking cap on. Any ideas, shoot them at me.

Here's a pic that we snapped yesterday at NCounter in Tempe, in our red, white and blue, star-spangled yankee doodle dandiest...
