Tots on bikes, kids as cargo, family cycling, and other high-occupancy velo goodness.

Not caring how much our bikes weigh since 2008.

Oh What Fun It Is To Ride ..., originally uploaded by totcycle.

Snowy commute! Big flakes of snow floating down, near-deserted streets,  ... Seattle is a wussy snow town - we canceled schools yesterday based on the mere threat of 1-2 inches that never came.

Resistance trainingRiding through a snowy dawn was magical. I was taking it to the streets since the bike trail has several inches of fluffy snow in spots, which was causing bigtime snow buildup under my rear fenders. My traction with the Fat Franks was probably better than with the bald tires on my '89 Civic - no big skids or wipeouts, just a clumsy prostate exam by my saddle when I hot-dogged a bit and bunny-hopped a curb onto a slippery patch.

Yay snow!

Stephan at Dutch Bike Chicago just took his shop bakfiets beyond thunderdome with some new Mad Max studded Marathon tires. We don't get enough snow to justify such an upgrade, but I hear he's terrorizing the snowy streets of Chicago on his newly studly bike.
