{ ride a bike… everyday, everywhere }


It’s the middle of August already. Not much news at all to report as to the development of the upcoming issue of Cranked. Like I said earlier, I’ve taken the summer off and I’ve been enjoying it. Taking it off at least in terms of the magazine. In other circles, I’ve taken no time off. I’ve continued to work at Wright Bros virtually everyday and am happy to say I’ve progressed my bike mechanic skills and knowledge extensively. A couple of weeks ago I did take some time off from that and everything else to get married and that was fantastic, quite possibly the best weekend of my life. Nice small, intimate ceremony, good friends, good food and drink; some of you were there, so you know.

…it was a jocular affair!

As expected I hope, my bride and I made sure to include our love for bicycles in the event.



We thankfully had a friendly entourage to escort us down from the top of Queen Anne hill.

So, yes, I’ve been busy. Not only the business of getting married, but also the urgent business of finding a new residence. Our landlord decided to raise our rent again! What with the wedding to plan and prepare for we’ve only now begun to search for an apartment and only have fifteen more days to go before we’re supposed to move out. Any suggestions for cheap rent in the city? I’ve noticed a preponderance of condos everywhere, not very helpful for our situation, can you relate?

One thing I cannot relate to, and am exceedingly glad to remain that way is this mess with I-5? I cannot imagine what it must be like to be stuck in traffic all day. Is it really that bad? I’ve expected to hear news stories of people road-raging like they were in LA in the nineties. One cool thing that I noticed that came out of this is our UPS driver at the bike shop asked us if we knew of some good bike routes, she wanted to ride her bike from home to the UPS base. Nice to hear people taking the biking alternative seriously. Way to go!

    Any chance of covering the weird cycling projects at Burning Man (e.g. cyclecide — I assume they’ll be there anyway) in the next issue of Cranked?

    Burning Man, would be dope for sure. Mark at the shop has been building some retarded looking chopper thing for it. I’d greatly appreciate some words on the big BM this year.

    Cyclecide, I’ve always wanted some story on their spectacles!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Just wait ’til the decorations are complete. Skulls, lights, windmills, ELwire. And Oh yeah, its a three speed coaster brake. I’ll write you an article.
