Car-free furniture

On my lunch break today Nicole and I took a ride to the Haight to drop off Jula's friend Sophia. On the way we found a cornucopia of free stuff sitting on a corner including this huge bookshelf unit that was easily biked home after the arduous task of attaching it to my xtracycle.

Among the other things we found were, a pile of clothes hangers, a bike rack for a car trunk, a hat rack, a hanging shoe rack and magnetic knife holder, all things we've needed lately.

Here's a video of the stuff on Nicole's bike :)

Diabetes Charity Ride

For the past few years craigslist has generously sponsored me and many of my coworkers and even more friends to ride in the American Diabetes Association charity ride in Napa. Last year, I rode the 50 mile course solo. Now that we have two kids who are old enough to ride along with us, this year we rode the super cushy 10 mile course. In the end we all agreed that we could have easily done the 25 mile course but were glad to have a really relaxed time together.

The xtracycles barely fit into the truck we got from Zipcar. Just barely.

A coworker's xtracycle (that I sold to him) and his dual-kid-cargo trailing behind him and our X's in the background.

Our first biking family portrait!

More pre-prep before the ride.

And a little video of our leisurely ride ;)
