Airport 2 Airport

We were improvising. We went from G-tac to Seatac. Because we could.
It was a nice Saturday riding and riding.

New Trawler

This is my new bike trawler. It cost 20 bucks on craigslist. I
stripped it of all it's day-glow fabric and bolted on a plywood deck
courtesy of my neighbor John.

This is it on it's inaugural service deployment to get dog food.

Thinking about buying one of these:

Is that dumb? Anyone been on one of these?

Math is Hard II

So.... a while back Dominic mentioned that perhaps the BunnYHawkS should engage in some charitable activities. Well, an opportunity has presented itself.

I was recently contacted by EarthCorps a local notforprofit that brings people from all over the world to participate in a training program focused on ecological restoration. They need some help and we are just the sort of people that could help them out.

They have a fleet of bikes that they receive as donations to lend out to their international corps members so the newly arrived aren't entirely dependant on public transportation. When I worked there those bikes saw a lot of use and little maintenance. One of the program managers remembered that I was in to bikes and asked if I would help them get their bikes in to some sort of decent shape before their new internationals arrive

Blaise and I spoke about the possibility of doing a day of service at RC to get their fleet buffed out. Looks like shop space has been donated and now its just a matter of getting enough people together to clean, lube, fix flats and repair the approximately 20 bikes.

Would you all be willing to pitch in and donate a day of music and beer drinking to the cause of international sustainable mobility awareness and get those bikes rolling?!!??

How about Saturday March 13th? Sounds too good to be true.

Stolen Bike!

Yo babes and dudes,

My good friend Trevor Walter had his bike redistributed last night from the UW campus in Seattle. The suspect is unknown, but I surmise the 6 or 7 year-old Kryptonite lock helped whomever it was out.

If you see a purple/maroon 54cm Miyata running through your shop or on the craigslist, get at Trevor directly:

Trevor's a young father on a shoestring budget, and this ride was his primary transportation. If anybody has a loaner 52 or 54 that I can buy off of you for my friend (5'7"), or a even just a loaner for the next month or so, please let me know:
