  • Seattle=good time

    Well we made it out of those good times intact, and everyone is better off having had them.  Let's recap, almost 11,000 dollars raised, one bike traded for a car, one cruiser given away, lots of good beer drinking times, and all with a 98% waste diversion rate.  If you look up awesome in the dictionary I'm pretty sure that's the definition.So now we're off to Portland to do it all over again... Let's see if the City of Roses can enjoy themselves as much as Seattle.And one more thing,  Coleman and I were out riding around Seattle having some bike shop times when low and behold, stuck directly to the bike rack outside Recycled Cycles was this:road 34 sticker That there is a sticker from everyone's ...

  • Look out Seafair...here we come.

    This Saturday, we mark a momentous occasion in Tour de Fat history. For the first time ever, we get to host our little soiree in a city park! Not just any park either, we are talking about one of the coolest spots in the town, GasWorks. This Ex-power plant/refinery will now be home to our festival supporting the power of pedal. Talk about sweet justice. It's slow, but it is awesome. more to come on that. We are looking to have a great parade...longer than usual, but great if you got the legs. We'll be leaving Gasworks @ 10am out to Golden Gardens and back. We don't have Police support to escort us, so we'll have to ride safe, and keep it clean so they'll ...

  • I want to trade my car for a bike in Seattle!

    She comes with a broken tape deck so we pretty much cruise around to the sounds of the FM. She qualifies for "Whitetrashmobile"
    certification at this point. All I need to do is dump her in a trailer park and her life would be complete. I have respectfully decorated her with bumper stickers and I wash her annually to conserve water. Honest! She's still in my possession despite her homeless appearance and ...
