Before Bike Noodle

My friend died this week. I join so many other people in being heartbroken right now, and I am deep-diving into my photo archives for photos of him. I’m finding other stuff, too, including how I used to go to the community garden we started together. Showing him this photo again would have made him…

Tree by bike!

Pictured is the view from my body camera (which I was wearing on my back) as I was Traveling at the Speed of Bike home with my Christmas tree yesterday! As it’s my first holiday season as an empty nester (and, in general, the world’s been feeling a little light on joy lately), I needed…

Yes, Bruno

So someone named Bruno Salcedo asked in the comments section of this video about Bike Noodle that I posted on YouTube over a year ago:  Are you still using it? Have you had any trouble with it? I am thinking of installing one myself. I replied: Hi, Bruno. I use it only when I ride in…
