Oh no....!

Buy my son's car and get cash back!

There are three things your children should be able to do before they become competent adults: Gut a fish, start a fire and drive a stick. So, with that bit of fatherly advice here's a car that one of your kids would love to drive, seeing as it has a spunky four cylinder engine and manual transmissi...

Re: Just in case

If you aren’t working or things are just tight and you run out of food, please don’t go to sleep with an empty stomach. Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to send me a private message, text, call. I will be more than happy to share what food I have. We will never speak about it again. I will drop and go...

Danny MacAskill's Gymnasium

You can't but love Danny MacAskill's skills on a bike,
If you've seen other of his videos, I'm sure this tops them all.
Gotta love the Scottish accent of the guy who sings the accompanying tune.
(makes me think of Tripleshotter Scottish Karen)

Re: Solo rides

I second those remarks. The city is getting fricken paranoid and you sure see it on full display when riding a bike. Not only are walkers really bold in voicing their assessment of how close you are riding to your fellow buddy, as in "Hey You, Social Isolation" which some self-righteous walker shout...

A letter from F. Scott Fitzgerald, Quarantined

A LETTER FROM F.

I thank you for your letter. Outside, I perceive what may be a collection of fallen leaves...

Re: Wednesday, March 11 - Antiviral FarmCross

If I''m not there, swing by my house and holler until the neighbours wake up. I am pretty sure one of them will call the cops because they detest cyclists.
By the time the squad cars arrive I should be dressed.
Thank you.

Re: Friday, March 6 - (Partially) Off-Road Bicycle Ride

I hate you all
Sadly, I’m stuck in Vancouver whilst trying to save the world from health privateers.
On the plus side, my knobby tires seem to work well on the Central Valley Greenway
