Is it true that today is actually April 16? Given the small blizzard this afternoon outside our office windows, one would never guess. Yes, I realize that we always need the water but I am ready for warmer temperatures and sunny days. No bike commuting all week due to cold, wet weather. Yes, I'm a bit of a wimp, but inclimate weather is a barrier I have yet to overcome.
As I look at the gloomy skies outside our kitchen window, my thoughts return to a little ray of sunshine I've seen locked to various bike posts in downtown Flagstaff. A cute bike. I love the warm, happy color. I don't know about the handlebars though. I think this is a beach cruiser. Not sure so anyone can feel free to correct me. I've never ridden a bike with this type of handlebar but it looks pretty awkward. Comments from the experienced are welcome.
Bob and I visited several Portland websites to plan our travel itinerary. We plan to rent bikes at Waterfront Bikes, visit Powells, pay homage to the zoobomber bike stacks, and have a beer at the Lucky Labradore Brew Pub!
Today, I signed up to be my office's Bike to Work Week coordinator. Yes, it is a thankless job but someone has to inspire (pressure) her co-workers to give up their cars for a day or two. I have big plans to photograph my coworkers looking their most cycle chic best, with a mountain chic twist of course.
The City of Flagstaff is holding its annual Earth Day celebration this Saturday at the south lawn of City Hall. A bike repair booth is planned and I'll be heading down there in pursuit of visual subject matter. Hopefully, I'll have some interesting content up this weekend. With the bad weather this week, pickin's have been pretty slim.
