Here is the manufacturer's website... Duncan was looking for a bike powered vehicle to carry his equipment. I think the GoBoy would work out well for him.

Columbus - Other portions of city code for bikes would change

* Bicycles would be allowed on sidewalks under the related changes designed to clean up inconsistencies in city laws.

Helmets for kids weren't the only changes proposed to Columbus rules on bicycles.

In addition to requiring that those age 17 or younger wear helmets while operating bicycles or other non-motorized vehicles, the ordinance proposed by Councilwoman Charleta Tavares, chairwoman of council's Health, Housing and Human Services Committee, would allow bicyclists on sidewalks.

Lara Baker, chief prosecutor for the city of Columbus, said after she was asked to look at the helmet law, she saw "inconsistencies in the statute."

City laws "cannot be vague, cannot be conflicting," she said.

The Lantern: Bicycle co-op gives cyclists a third hand

It is a small but busy space and the rich smell of rubber tires mingled with grease hangs in the air. The tires are hanging by the dozens from hooks embedded in the ceiling, the wall is lined with bicycle frames and at several stations, pairs of workers are fixing flats, removing rust, greasing chains and adjusting brakes. A man with a shaved head, piercing blue eyes and a wide smile approaches and says, "Hi, welcome to Third Hand, what can I help you with?" His arms are quite literally covered with thick, black grease.

Check out One Car Motorcade

I met Matt through a friend. His band is releasing an album and you can listen to some tracks on Myspace.

Here is some info from the page...

The members of One Car Motorcade have been friends since high school and have played music together on and off over the years. Somewhere in the mid aughts, life took them away from making music, but not from maintaining their friendships. Sometime in the late summer of 2007, they determined that the friendships were OK, but what they really missed was making music. So they got together for a jam session and before they knew it, an album was written. The idea was just to have fun and write some cool rock ‘n’ roll songs without taking themselves too seriously. However, they are just pretentious enough to have one of the band members write this bio in the third person. So here’s the myspace page – with photos taken by Jennifer Schaaf and music produced by Rick May. The six songs on this page are from the self titled album which is currently being pressed. We will provide info on how to get a copy when the time comes, along with any gigs once they are booked. Enjoy what you hear and keep visiting this site for more info. Or just call the guys, cause, let’s face it, you’re all just friends and family anyway, right?

Probably fog, but pretty cool shot at one of the cemeteries. Although, we have other shots in the same cemetery and there is no fog. What do you think?

Press release

Tour de Grandview this weekend

I stopped over last year and watched the races. It is fun to watch the cyclists group break up when they reach the hill before the finish line. It is an indicator of who is fit and who is not.
