Women-in-tech, and a couple of new nurses

It had been a few weeks since I led a Fall in Love with Atlanta Tour with Bicycle Tours of Atlanta because I have been busy on my scooter article (currently being fact-checked and undergoing a final edit at Ensia) as well as one with Unearth Women (currently in edits as well). Plus, I’ve been…

Stats to date in 2019

I track my bike miles on an app (note that sometimes I forget to start it so the actually numbers are a bit higher), and it shows that I rode 229 miles in May (including on this road in suburbia — thank goodness for BikeNoodle!). 979 miles ridden so far in 2019. 54,611 calories burned. 47,552…

Joe for mayor?

My friend Joe Seconder (see his blog, Joe 4 Dunwoody) is currently on a listening tour (photo from yesterday when I met with him at the park). He is considering running for mayor of the City of Dunwoody. Many of his ideas harken back to the passion and vision I remember from when this metro ATL…

How I vote

The latest in micromobility

So here is the latest to hit the streets in micromobility. I saw these in Santa Monica in March and they are now in Atlanta (my photo is from right outside the Midtown MARTA station). They refer on their site* to it as a “bike” but since it has no pedals, I refer to it…

Meet King

I had the opportunity to take a man named King Williams on the Sustainability-in-Action bike tour yesterday to share so many good things happening, and still yet possible, at this crossroads of change in our world. I specifically invited King because I’ve been impressed by the work he’s been doing and thought he might appreciate…

Taking stock

Am taking stock this weekend. Am continuing to trust the journey. If our intentions moving forward align, let’s connect and do even bigger things together. The intentions on the bottom of the collage read: I’m excited about the new Sustainability-in-Action bike tours, I’m volunteering at the ICanBike camp for kids with disabilities, I pitched a new…
