Since the weather’s so awesome for biking, I think you should all check out the latest issue of Momentum in which I demonstrate how to carry a cat on a bike.
What never made it into the issue is the fact that this was Spooky’s first and final ride. We were taking her to the vet to be put down, after the terrible surprise of cancer that grew behind her right eye and couldn’t really be solved. That’s a long story which I don’t need to blog about – suffice to say the kitty loved the adventure of riding a bike, in the safety / concealment of her cat carrier. Oh, the things we learn too late.
In case that crazy issuu.com viewer doesn’t work, it’s on the Momentum site as well (without the picture, though).
I finally got recruited to write for Momentum, the magazine for self-propelled people. I wrote a book review in each of their last two issues:
The Wheels of Chance
by HG Wells
Urban Biker’s Tips and Tricks
By Dave (Mr. Bike) Glowacz
Both pretty awesome books! I could go on about them here, one being Wells’ (surprisingly) non-sci fi about adventure and romance in the early days of cycling (they were the fastest thing on the road!) and the other, Mr. Bike’s handy guide for maximizing your bike awesomeness.
But the reviews are much more complete than whatever short blurb I write here, despite how useful it would be to draw google hits by saying Hoopdriver Hoopdriver Hoopdriver!
Check them out with the links above.
