1. This is an important point: Bike lanes don’t cause a lot more congestion if you put them on the right streets. If you cut down the size of streets that are already near capacity, you’ll create severe congestion. But if you start with roads that are well under capacity, you’ll only increase the congestion a little bit. And it may not even be noticeable. Slimming down these roads that are too “fat” is known as a road diet — and yes, that is the technical term.
  2. When’s the last time I posted a self portrait from the office bathroom? While up at 4:00 am last night, worrying about the state of the world and wondering if I left any articles of clothing at the dry cleaner, I remembered I owned this skirt. (Sorry world, it was much easier to solve the dilemma of my closet). New outfit ideas need to be posted on the internet, right?

  3. Another year, another celebration of locking up next to the Orange Bike Gentleman Caller. Our saddles look like hearts … or if you flip it the other way—butts.

  4. I don’t normally post photos of strangers on the internet, but I have to applaud this couple. The cyclist rigged his Surly Long Haul Trucker to tote his lady and their Boykin Spaniel. Many an observer cheered them on going down King Street that day.

  6. How else do you bike in bad weather? I obviously didn’t care if my bottom half met with the rain.

  7. "Heels and wheels won the battle of the bridge as a divided Charleston City Council voted in favor of closing one of the car lanes on the inbound T. Allen Legare Bridge and making it exclusive to cyclists and walkers."
Great news for the bike commuters of Charleston.

  9. I tested out the Enterprise car share program yesterday, because I had an interview on Johns Island (not bikable). It was great! I just waved my card over the windshield and it unlocked. The keys were inside the glove box, along with a gas card and a parking garage pass. It was all very easy.
I’m still not sure how they will bill me, but I suppose I’ll find out sooner or later. This is a really great program for someone who only needs to drive once in a blue moon. I wish they had one set up through the city, so more people could use it. (This particular program is utilized by the college that I work for.)
Now, get me back on the bike.
