My goal for this summer is to spend a lot more time on my bike and a lot less time in my car. Although some of driving that I do is necessary because it is hard to ride to a wedding in a suit with 40 pounds of camera gear on my bike, the short trips to the post office and grocery store can easily be accomplished via pedal power. I’m currently working on a bike my wife affectionately (or maybe mockingly) calls the “Green Hornet.” It should be done in the next week or so complete with a rack for carrying those grocery bags back from the store.

While we are on the subject of bike projects, I found a great website for bike stickers for both your bike and your bumper. Check it out: http://worldsbestbikestickers.com/
