Back in the Saddle

So it’s been awhile since I posted last, not that I haven’t been riding just not posting. So in the last month I have done a century ride, some non sanctioned bike events have gone down in town, some fundraisers for the North American Cycle Courier Championships happened, Carytown Bikes moved to a new location, and a friend of mine won a contest by RVA Fat Tire Rides. Really a lot has been happening. Today I stopped by Pibby’s and ordered up a new rear wheel for my commuter bike (Salsa Delgado, 36 spoke with a 105 hub) and got to ride the Bullitt Bike Chip has there. That was weird for sure but I want one. Anyhow, more fun stuff is coming up including BIKE WEEK II in which bikes and weeks coincided and don’t forget May is bike to work month but we have time for that. Anyhow here are some upcoming and recent happenings around town:

And VCU is going to have some bike sharing going on now.

And finally although it doesn’t officially happen I guess since people are making videos and posting them on the internet it makes it real. Slaughterama probably will never cease.



Awhile back I posted on “regulars” you may encounter while commuting by bicycle. You know, the dog walker, the morning coffee and paper, the bum who smells awesome. Well on Friday on my ride home I came across a group of people I know but don’t encounter frequently while riding at least. It was the folks from the Richmond Cycling Corps, which if you don’t know, is a great group promoting cycling with youth in the city. As I crossed Belle Isle I saw a bunch of people riding trails in the woods, carrying on, and generally having the kind of fun you should be having on a bicycle. Only as I came close to crossing the southbank access bridge did I realized who it was and stopped to chat and take a couple photos. Looks like the kids were having a great time!

Monday, er, Tuesday Bike photos

As yesterday was a celebration of some sort my workplace allowed me the chance to be off for the day yet still receive payment. As such, I did not venture out of my house save to drop my car off for yet another bit of maintenance. Rant, ends there but I was able to use my bike this morning to travel to the workplace and as such I captured these photos for you to enjoy! Happy Tuesday!
