Bastille on Bishop

Bicycle Friendly Oak Cliff & Go Oak Cliff put together another beautiful event. This was my first year to attend Bastille on Bishop, even though I missed the mussels, I was able to enjoy Matt Tolentino jamming on his accordion and the taste of french fries and sausages. [nggallery id=43]

Ride of Silence re-cap

Ride of Silence re-cap

Another great ride, with a real good purpose. We're so used to riding fast, or like me quasi-fast, and chatting up a storm with our cycling buddies about current events that it's refreshing to ride with others at a slower pace and to have the time to reflect on other ...

Loving..

Nothing beats climbing hills, and best hill that’s close to me is none other than the hill on Loving Ave. At any given time, if you ride by this street you will see at least one masochistic cyclist grinding their teeth up this hill. It’s deceiving, too, because when you are on top of the hill you immediately hit a second, baby hill at Gaston Parkway and the party continues.

Locals: Jacob

I went out on an adventure at White Rock Lake this evening and who do I run into but Jacob ! I met Jacob when I bought my Bianchi Pista Concept from him, thanks to Transit Bicycles Company, who connected me with him. It was awesome riding with you, even for a little bit. Until next time, my friend. : )

Southern Hospitality

I am in Houston for the weekend, so I was able to attend Houston’s Critical Mass ride yesterday.  I talked to the shop guy and girl at Houston Fixed Gear about the ride and they were really friendly and told me to expect a crowd of around 400.  All varieties of cyclists turned out for this ride.  The ride was massive, the route was interesting, and the cyclist-motorist interactions were sometimes chaotic.  Someone was arrested, another got three tickets, one person was hit by a car, and some angry drivers let the riders corking the roads know how they felt about the traffic delays.

This ride was a great way to see various neighborhoods in Houston and to share a common interest in cycling with so may different types of people.
