Not really looking for holiday sweaters though:
Two people wanted me to post this about their bikes being stolen:
Thought you might be able to post about my bike…
Had my bike stolen last night (October 1st) on Havemeyer between Grand and Metro. Wish I had a picture of it, but I don’t. It’s a mountain bike with a slick on the back wheel and nobby up front. The color is basically rust (I stripped all the paint and did a thin clear coat so it would rust up the surface. Thought it would make the bike less of a target…) I just put a couple hundred bucks into new tires, rear hub, etc.
Well, no expectations on finding it, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that bikes aren’t as safe as you may think; Krypto locks and chains notwithstanding.
If you do spot the bike somewhere in the hood (I live three blocks there) please let me know – firstname.lastname@example.org
According to the blog bikeportland.org the city of Portland, Oregon is proclaiming their love for the bike couriers. Congratulation.
How does he get any work done being drunk all the time? Well he did the right thing for our bike messengers.

So there are a couple of food rides tomorrow: First-
the Tour de Taco
Weâ€™re joining forces with El Tour del Taco and will be combining a love of cycling with a love of tacos! This ride starts on the UWS at Taqueria y Fonda (968 Amsterdam) at 12 noon but since this is Brooklyn by Bike, we will be leading a ride from the Grand Army Plaza Arch at 10:30am.
This an all day event that will be going live on Twitter so if you canâ€™t make it in the morning, you can join us along the way!
Hereâ€™s the list of destinations (now in order!):
01. Taqueria y Fonda â€“ Amsterdam btwn 107th & 108th, Manhattan
the annual Brooklyn Greenmarket bike tour
Meet Greenmarket farmers, nosh your way through some of Brooklyn’s finest farmers’ markets, and go on a fun bike ride with Timeâ€™s Up Environmental Group and Greenmarket!
The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colors, and the farmers’ markets are on the cusp of Fall. All this means that now is the best time to EAT! Work up an appetite as we bike the Saturday Brooklyn Greenmarkets and eat Fall’s bounty. The tour begins at the Greenpoint Rooftop Farm, where farmer Annie Novak will give us a tour of this stunning 6,000 sq foot farm sitting atop a warehouse in industrial Brooklyn. Afterward, weâ€™ll head to the McCarren Park market for coffee, breakfast and bike tune-ups (provided by NYC Bikes) before riding to the Brooklyn Borough Hall market for some cider pressing and cider doughnut eating. Next weâ€™ll go to the Ft. Greene market for a worm bin composting demonstration by the Ft. Greene Compost Project folks. We’ll end our insider’s tour at Brooklyn’s largest Greenmarket, Grand Army Plaza, with a cooking demonstration hosted by Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo and market-inspired lunch in the park with a couple of Greenmarket farmers.

You’ve probably all seen this by now, but this was quite the scene caught on video between a cab driver and a pedicab.
This video was made by the San Diego shop and blog: velo cult, on a recent camping trip to Interbike.
