An Invitation Re-Presented
In January 2003 I extented an invitation to my, hoped for, readership to share their thoughts with the world through essays posted here.
This was brought on by my getting the okay from Daniel A. Gutierrez, of the
Aerospace Cycling Club, Long Beach Cyclists, and the International Bicycle Transportation Institute (BTI) to post an outstanding essay of his originally seen on a message board we frequent.
My purpose was, and still is, to foster discussions, about bicycling
through these essays, and those essays of my own that I write as well.
That's what the COMMENT function, here. is for folks, so don't be shy! :-)
Daniels piece is here: What Do Cyclists Wish For?
Since the relaunch in March my readership has grown, and so....
Here, again, is my INVITATION:
As my posting of Dan's piece illustrates, while MY opinions, and commentary, will make up the majority of such items that I post here, posting links to the writings of others, OR posting ( and giving credit to the writer ) items of interest to bicyclists, of a reasonable length ( 1500 words or less ), submitted by others, is something I feel is worth doing as my time permits.
By items of interest I don't just mean opinion and commentary, but reports from participants in an event, and even links to news stories related to bicycling in some fashion that appear in your local newspaper. Know of a bike shop that opened BEFORE 1941 that has an internet presence? Let me know. You get the idea.
Feel free to send submissions to me, at the e-mail listed on this site, and you just MAY find yourself linked to from here, or your submission posted for all to see and even comment upon.
And, be aware that I will most likely have something to say, myself, about the contribution, if linked to, or posted. :-)
So, don't be shy, let a piece seen here be a way to say to your fellow bike riders.... HI!! :-)

Greetings ... I'm looking for a source of bike helmets to give away to young riders. Right now, I need five, but if I can find a good source, I'm sure I could give away hunderds of them. And if we are lucky, maybe 20% of them will actually get used or will encourage a young rider to become a regular rider when they get older.
I also need a couple of volunteer adults to pair up with some boy scouts to ride the Los Angeles (California) River Ride on Sunday, June 10th. If you are interested, please call me on my cell phone at (818) 720-8281.

The team at “The Bicyclist” web series in Portland would like to invite you to tune into the show, if you haven’t already. The series, which is up to episode #28, follows the rivalries, romances and misadventures of five unlikely free-wheeling friends whose lives intersect through The Recyclery, an actual bike shop on Portland’s Eastside. Along the way, they cross paths with a host of quirky characters simply known as Demon SUV, DUI Rider, Bike Commuter Guy, the Weekend Warriors, Picka Lock, Five Finger Discount, Super Deluxe Rider, and the Lady Dive Bombers. There’s also guest appearances by such local PDX bike legends as The Belligerantes (an all-Schwinn bike gang) and The Sprokettes (a world-famous all-girl bike dance troupe), and a new website at www.TheBicyclist.tv, with a bigger player to watch it.
