Following My Folly

In 2011, I donated my car and pledged not drive for ONE YEAR while helping my community and inspiring others to drive less and bike more, with nothing less than a Colorado-built, styled to the max, commuting marvel.

From 2013 and beyond, I discuss bikes, bedlam, beer and beautiful adventures- plus the occasional rant.

I'm the New Belgium Brewing Company's 2011 Tour de Fat "Car for Bike" trader in San Diego, CA.

nice folding bicycle

Because it just goes to show that anyone can make space for a bike. 

Brompton’s are genius!

Laurence Packer loves bees. "Passion is a bit of an understatement, maybe I’m obsessed," he tells us.  His book, Keeping the Bees: Why All Bees are at Risk and What We Can Do to Save Themexplores what exactly bees do and why its so important that we protect them. In today’s interview he explains how pollination can affect fruit and vegetable crops: 

"A nice, economically valuable watermelon that’s large and quite round and not malformed requires a couple of thousand pollen grains to be deposited. And that might require seven or so different visits of a bee to the flower.

In California, where these studies have been done in the most detail, there are 40 different species of bees that will perform that service. If not enough pollen gets onto the watermelon you get a [misshapen] one. And if you don’t get any pollen, you don’t get any watermelon at all.

Some crops are entirely dependent upon pollination. Others don’t require pollinators at all, such as cereal grains. Others are pollinated by the wind, such as grapes. But most of the tastiest products from plants — such as most fruits and vegetables — these require pollination for the development for the fruit or the vegetable, or at least for the propagation of the vegetable plants through seeds.”

We need to talk. Please, have a seat.

I heard a loud crash from our bathroom and discovered our Dogo Argentino, Baron, had somehow managed to completely break the seat off of the toilet.

Oops…. My bad…
