... Foo ... Blah ... Stuff, whatever you call it. This is a miscellaneous post of quick, short, bike-related randomness.

Quick fun. Night riding on 87th street is kind of dicey. I ran some errands, grabbed some beer and soda for tomorrow's party at my place. Then I had to get some iced tea and other assorted stuff from the grocery store. I was running all over the 87th street corridor tonight in the dark... with proper lighting, of course. Fun stuff, but not a great road to take the lane on once the sun goes down.

Next, I have a meeting tomorrow at Oak Park Mall (before the party at my place), which is just a meeting with a bunch of nerds, including the nerds I was setting fireworks off with yesterday. I'm riding downtown tomorrow all the way (probably with Chris leading the way, crazy spin machine he be) but I'm taking the L bus to Oak Park Mall when I get off work.

Then, I have to mention that I'm getting excited for the Lenexa Midnight Bike Ride on July 14th. 10pm registration July 14th, starts as July 15th arrives, just in case there is any confusion on which midnight it is. If anyone wants to join me, feel free.

Finally, for anyone interested in joining the commuter convoy on Monday, sign up soon, please. The weather looks to be great. If you'd rather the Monday morning commuter convoy change times either earlier or later, just let me know and I'll try to coordinate it with anyone else that wants to join up. This is a great opportunity to learn the layout of a popular bike commute route while gaining road confidence and the wonderful freedom that comes with getting places under your own power. If you're interested, PLEASE e-mail me and I'll try to get you up to speed. This is a slow-medium paced ride for anyone interested in bike commuting, even if you've never thought to try it before. If you'd like an easier trip home, I can help you find a Johnson County Transit bus solution that will get you close to home for a reasonable fee. All the big JO buses have bicycle racks to accommodate cyclists.

That's all for tonight!

The commuter convoy is a great idea. I've noticed that when my neighbor and I ride in together, the auto traffic gives us a little extra room.

My son, buddy and I are signed up for the Lenexa ride. Look for us; we'll be the ones with bike helmets on.
