Dumb Driver

So this evening I was helping my daughter with a school project where she’s talking about how she can make a difference by riding her bike. We had pulled off to the side to get some video of the local traffic to use for her project. Check out what this driver does to us.

It’s coming up: the second annual Bicycle Bash By The Bay. It will be at the Vinoy Park in downtown St. Petersburg on November 4th. Here, just check out the flyer:

banner will be there with a table this year, and we’re getting some giveaway items (t-shirts, stickers, waterbottles) from our good friends KHS Bicycles. With a little luck, we’ll have a set or two of Sweetskinz tires to raffle off, too.

If you’re in the Tampa Bay area, come on by and say hello! There will be all sorts of bike-related vendors, and lots of yummy food from local eateries, BMX demos and bicycle collections to drool over. And, if you come to our table, you can lay eyes on the legendary “Patriot” bicycle in person! If you’re really nice and ask politely, I might even let visitors ride it…as long as I can snap a photo of you while you’re aboard!

The Patriot

We’d like to thank KHS Bicycles and Sweetskinz in advance for helping us have a presence at this event — and we appreciate your continued support.

So, everyone, come on by — it should be a blast!

Family Ride

Last night my husband Randy and I took the kids out for a ride around the neighborhood. I took Katrina and Kristen on the Champiot while Randy rode the KMX Kart.


We rode around for a while. We didn’t have any lights set up on either bikes so we had to improvise and used flashlights. We must have only gone around 5 miles but still had so much fun. I really enjoyed the quality time we’ve spent as a family.
