Bike Blog takes a...BREAK.
What? How can this be? In an ideal world I would spend my entire day mining the internet for wacky new bicycle innovations; reporting on alleycats and other messenger related events and posting all of your rants and observations on the NYPD's jihad against our two wheeled warriors...wait a minute...that is what I do all day. Well I have to take a bit of a break because I am burnt out and I am getting married next week to the amazing Samantha Lobis who somehow tolerates my pretense for internet viewing and published rantings. Then we are off to Mexico for a brief honeymoon in a country that doesn't just sit idle when their elections are being contested but rather march 2 million people in the streets to shut down the downtown area. Although we will be on the beach sipping margaritas and hopefully not being too despised by the locals who are innodated with fat clueless tourists who spend their money in mega-resorts and not into the local economy. We will tell them we are from Canada..eh and Dos Cervezas Por Favor. Then I come back on the day of the public hearing and its off the 2006 North American Cycle Courier Championships. As you can see my plate is a little full right now. I know what your thinking...How can I get through my day without your important compilation of bike related material? It will be difficult...Especially in this harsh political climate against bikes as record breaking globally warm heatwaves plague us and thousands of innocent civilians get laser guided missiles dropped on them so our Hummers can get groceries at Walmart 10 blocks from our homes built with old growth lumber. All I can say is channel your fustrations against that damn blogger stopping his rants to go and marry the state into ACTION. Write your city council members and tell them they are being left out of the process of parade definitions because the crybaby police are tired of riding their little scooters into us and writing tickets with code violations that don't exist. Tell them to represent you and to tell Bloomberg, Kelly and Smolka that the police are supposed to enforce the laws...not make them up.
Bike Blog will return to your regularly scheduled bike culture news in September...Bigger and Better on into the year 3000. (and maybe even figure out how to use html code)
Now let us all join in the words of the great spiritual hym...Still We Ride, Still We Ride...Thank God Almighty...Still We Ride!
