Ray Bradbury – Bicycle Rider

Link via LA Times Though he didn’t drive, Bradbury could often be spotted out and about Los Angeles. A familiar figure with a wind-blown mane of white hair and heavy black-framed glasses, he’d browse the stacks of libraries and bookstores, his bicycle leaning against a store front or pole just outside.

Rode to Mountain View Boat House and back

First time E rode his 20″ and A rode her 24″ on the Stevens Creek Trail to the MV Boat House and back. E got pretty muddy on his offroad excursions. We made very good time with lack of wind and bigger bikes.

Purchased 24″ Hotrock for Ally

Purchased a 24″ Hotrock for Ally at Mike’s Bikes in Palo Alto last Saturday. It was nice of them to include a kickstand. I’ll have to angle the brakes down a little. Ally looks like she fits the bike well, and Toshi also had fun riding it on Sunday.
