I’m not sure if I must establish my credentials. But if so, they’re here .
My best bike ride ever was in 1998 when my wife Vivienne and I rode our Cannondale tandem from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland . We rode 1,891 km in a leisurely 37 days.
I hope you enjoy the rest of Bike Week. Also I wish you happy pedalling, and that the wind will always be at your back and the road ahead will always be down hill.

From the utilitarian
to the playful
to the protective
to the thoughtful, such as this one that has the added feature of a bike pump.

Mothers may have better spatial memory than females who haven't given birth, and they may be more flexible, adaptive, and courageous. These are all skills and talents they will need to keep track of and protect their babies... This transformation holds true even for adoptive mothers.

We three Aussies got these tats done a few years ago in Melbourne before all heading off to different parts of the globe.
Kerryn loves Kurt Vonnegut and decided to get "And so it goes" (a recurring line from Slaughterhouse Five) tattooed on her shoulder.
Finally on the other side of three decades worth of bad shit, Gil decided to get "And so it was" tattooed on her back representing the past that she has moved on from but that made her who she is.
And Meg, the eternal optimist decided to get "And so it will be" on her right arm as a symbol of the charm of the unknown.
We reunited this afternoon for a few brief hours before we were once again claimed by different time zones.

Here are the fish we caught, before we caught them. (The lake was restocked with hundreds of fish throughout the day.)

- Let's treat the next person. What to treat them with? It's your choice.
- Even if it's a group of friends or a family, please form a single-file line. Also, you can't buy twice in a row.
- Please enjoy what you get, even if you hate it. (If you really, really hate it, let's quietly give it to another while saying, "It's my treat…")
- Let's say "Thank You! (Gochihosama)" if you find the person with your Ogori café card.
- We can't issue a receipt.
It forced one to "let go", just for a brief moment, of the total control we're so used to exerting through commerce. It led you to taste something new, that you might not normally have ordered. It was a delight.

be they human or non-human.
We fell in love with the ways of the natural world,
our small place within it,
