riding with the ninja cook

met raymond at hurl's coffee. went for a ride , no pictures, so i'm not sure it really happened. the meister performed like a well oiled machine, even if the rear brake cable casing was 3 inches short, aesthetics not performance...

weather: 35 F, cloudy, wind from the west
roads: excellent

new moon rituals

from here i got this paragraph:
the new moon is the birthing cycle of the moon's various phases. The new moon phase is an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions. Seedlings need a period of gestation before they break through the soil and reach for the sunlight. This is also true for our ideas and our desires. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.

I think i need to begin logging massive amounts of junk miles. I'm building a winter commuter, richfield to roseville, single speed may be the wise choice, but i'll decide daily which bike i'll ride. i''m not putting too much thought into the whole thing, maybe i'll get a gps and do this shit right.

getting ready to panic

so i decided that peak oil is a good thing for me, whether or not it is good for the economy. some would say i'm dreaming others would say something else. I think of the people that could benefit from peak oil and the ensuing panic. should we encourage or even foment that panic or just plan on it happening and just get on with it.

i'm going to remain flexible, if it comes to this, i will wait in gas-lines and submit to rationing without protest. I may need to grow more food and repair more household products. I sure hope we get more electric trains that will run on power power produced in natural gas and nuclear power plants. yes, my bicycle will be the most reliable form of transit. But how will i get to the bike races?
