Keystone Complete Street Meeting.

Sorry, busy at work today.

The meeting was super well attended.  They had 3 separate projectors running with side by side computer generated displays of the before traffic and after traffic.  Turns out traffic flow is actually better after the redesign with fewer lanes.  Go figure!  The mood was really positive....didn't hear one negative comment about the designs.  And in past meetings there was certainly an opposition.  Not sure what that means, but I'll take positive any day!

Here's a few pics.

Blurry panorama of people!

Meeting Alert!! Keystone Complete Street Conversion....Tonight!!

In case you wanted to's the flyer with the details:

A Pedal Perspective.

I ride a bicycle at some point during most every day.  Sometimes for transportation, sometimes for exercise, and sometimes just because it's fun. 

This morning I decided my ride should be fun and somehow different. So, I dusted off the Xtracycle just for the fact that it has flats (pedals that don't require clipping in or special shoes).  Just the ability to ride in sandals, rather than throwing on my bike shoes was my qualifier for "fun".  And you know what, it was. 

So, what's your perspective on adding a little fun to your day?  Perhaps it should be just dusting off that bicycle and going for a spin.  What ever it is, make sure you get out and do it soon.  The summer sunshine and long evenings are starting to shorten and there's no time to waste!

Waterbiking....check out the article over at RGJ.

I'm not sure quite what to make of it.  I guess it would be a fun thing to try up at Tahoe.  If anyone actually gives one of these things a spin let me know!

A hiking we will go.

Wifey and I had company in town over the weekend so bicycles weren't the focus.  Instead it was a hiking weekend.  Here's a few pics from our adventures. 

High Camp at Squaw as a starting location.

Just below the summit of Granite Chief.

Only "experts" are allowed to hike Granite Chief (clearly)!

Day two hiking...The Mt. Judah loop off of Donner Summit.  Some of the best views off the Pacific Crest Trail you can ask for!

Looking back over Donner Lake.

End of day hiking requirement....dipping your toes in Tahoe!
Anyway, that was our whirlwind weekend.  Hope yours was just as much fun!

Bicycle Boulevards....can we make it work for downtown Reno?

Here's a little primer.....see what you think!  Notice that Portland was already thinking this way in 2007.  So we have a little catching up to do!
