Wednesday Link Love

IMG_1802 Reading other people's blogs can be an occupational hazard. So easy is it to get drawn into the web that hours somehow evaporate, uncounted. This happened to me last Friday while reading Asian Cajuns. Cath and Lar posted some link love for a few of their favorite distractions destinations. We bloggers are a generous lot and to follow their example, here is the first installment of mine. Let them lead the way. IMG_1805 That such media stars noticed my efforts (They even gave me beer!) early in the going was valuable approbation. “Twin Sisters Blogging An Ocean Apart” is how today they describe their delightful musings on lifestyles in Atlanta and Edinburgh. I once spent a day in the Scottish capital and found it difficult to leave. Now I can return just by clicking a mouse. IMG_4320 Author of another Best Of Atlanta choice, Jess Smith won her Atlanta Magazine prize in 2010 for blogging as Lady Flashback. From great outfits to DIY projects, Smith keeps it interesting. Her nightlife reportage is rooted in organizing the fun herself. I gratefully acknowledge that her first appearance on my blogs went viral in the then burgeoning world of cycle chic.

Long at the nexus of personal fashion blogging and bicycle commuting, Let’s Go Ride A Bike has emerged as North America’s leading voice for cycling advocacy, something for which all who ride may be thankful. These ladies should have bike lanes named for them. Dottie in Chicago and Trisha in Nashville share their experiences, both joyful and challenging, of daily life on two wheels. While written for women, LGRAB gets a surprising number of comments from men. Such is the strength of community.

On The BeltLine

IMG_2117 IMG_2118 IMG_2119
Atlanta's bicycle infrastructure continues to grow. We've seen how the newly paved Eastside Trail is connecting Old Fouth Ward, Inman Park, Poncey/Virginia-Highland neighborhoods and Piedmont Park. Now imagine further progress east-west via buffered lanes in Tenth Street connecting to more of the same in Piedmont Avenue and Juniper Street for north-south riding between 14th Street and Ponce de Leon. How green is that? Even the sidewalks of Juniper are slated for improvements. Midtown Alliance and the city's Department of Planning & Community Development invite you to learn more and have your say at an open house tomorrow from 5 'til 7 pm at 999 Peachtree Street, Suite 500. Please follow this link to let them know you will attend.

Street Scene: Tenth And Peachtree

IMG_1471 IMG_9455 What a morning for cyclists. Having just finished with the men in Piedmont Park, I was riding to a noon appointment on North Avenue when she crossed my path. Should I risk being late?
The choice was an easy one.
