Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Bicycle Love - Part 1 by Stacey Harwood :


You need a cool hat with flowers on it, too. And PICTURES!!

The brioche will do you in.

Sad new thing here in California: The White Bicycle.

Bicycles totally white are chained to places where cyclists lost their lives.

You and Dustin Hoffman! Careful punching cabs-though maybe an apt term for riding a bike in the city is "cab puncher."

Sally - Did Dustin Hoffman punch a cab? Shelley that is sad, like the flowers you see on the roadside where someone has died. I have to say, after my rather scary bike ride home from work, I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep it up. Eric, yes, I know all about brioche, alas. But I wanted a little treat to mark my first outing.

In Chicago there are white bikes chained to posts around the city where bicyclists died. Sometimes the cyclists bring it on themselves, sometimes not.

Re: Dustin Hoffman. In "Midnight Cowboy." Unscripted - the cab almost ran him over.

Here's the clip -

You can change it to "I'm biking here!"

I'm a Bike supporter!

Fantastic! Riding just to get around is a very cool thing to do. And, as Christopher Morley said: "The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets."

Have fun!

Jason, Thanks for the Morley quote.. I have to say, I'm a bit shakey on the bike. Not sure if it was a great idea to get such an old one. So you're from Albany! I did a lot of riding back in my Albany days. I had a 60 mile route from Albany to Saratoga Springs that criss-crossed Route 9 and ended at the great pool on the grounds of the Gideon Putnam. Those were the days. Thanks for the comments everyone.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
