Winterbike

I asked my sis to take some in-context pictures of my newly-festooned bike this evening. A little inadvertent bokeh ensued.

With my phone in the handlebar mount, I've discovered that the LED flash makes an excellent additional headlight.

Runs the battery down like crazy but I'm rarely rolling for more than an hour at a time anyway. And this way, nobody can fail to see me. Heck, almost nobody can resist commenting on how pretty Eleanor looks!

Eleanor's Confreres
In Genevieve Valentine's blog post about the Miss Universe costumes, someone noted "Miss Holland has a bike on her head...of course she does!"

Re: Eleanor's Confreres
LOL! Yeah. I was just listening to a podcast of The Urbanist where they looked at Amsterdam and dared to ask whether it's possible for a city to have too many bikes. The answer was a pretty clear "yes".

Those Dutch and their bikes. I don't have much of a bucket list, but I wouldn't mind riding the Dutch bike infrastructure one of these days.
