The Ultimate Bikespedition: Support the US Bicycle Route System

May is National Bicycle Month and it’s also the third annual Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. fundraising campaign for the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS). The campaign kicked off May 1, 2012 and runs through May 31. What better way to celebrate Bike Month than by supporting the creation of a national system of cycling routes?

Last year, this effort raised more than $32,000 for the project—the goal this year is $50,000.

Here are the details:

The U.S. Bicycle Route System is a visionary project similar to the national and international cycling systems blossoming across the globe. Adventure Cycling is working with dozens of state agencies, national organizations, nonprofits, volunteers, and the US Congress to realize this vision.

 Can you give $10 to help build the largest bike route network in the world, encompassing more than 50,000 miles?

You can already see the effects of last year’s USBRS campaign:

  • 6 new routes approved by AASHTO — the first new U.S. Bicycle Routes approved in over 30 years!
  • 11 new states coming on to develop routes. 41 states are now actively working to implement US Bike Routes. In my state of Washington the Bicycle Alliance of Washington is coordinating with Washington State Department of Transportation so you can join “Team Washington” with your donation.
  • The re-release of a Technical Advisory from the Federal Highway Association that advises DOTs on how to implement rumble strips without putting cyclists at risk.
  • 5,000 new fans of the USBRS on Facebook since last year’s campaign, now at more than 19,000 supporters.
  • Adventure Cycling now has a closer relationship with the National Park Service, aimed at improving bike travel and tourism in national parks as well as facilitating designation of US Bike Routes through parks as appropriate.

I have yet to go on any long bike travel but the lure of the open road does beckon. I’d sure love to take that ride on a route that’s signed, supported, and serviced to make it a better experience!

And imagine the benefits for small towns that will get stops from bike visitors who wouldn’t bother with those towns if they were burning carbon instead of calories zipping past on the interstate.

Just Capital! The Blogspedition Heads to Washington, DC

This coming week I get to appreciate our nation’s capitol yet again on an annual trip I make as part of a community delegation to meet with our federal elected officials, their staff, and various agencies on behalf of Spokane priorities.

Since these include projects of the university where I head up communications and public affairs I’m working while I’m there, but the schedule does have some gaps that may permit me to check out the Capital Bikeshare program or rent a bike from a local shop and pedal up and down the Mall a bit. I usually walk myself into the ground squeezing in museum visits between meetings–a bike would make it all so much easier and more efficient!

Meanwhile, as with my trip to New York City in February, I’m doing a blogspedition round-up in honor of the trip. I’ll also share some impressions of the biking the way I did for the Big Apple.

Washington, DC, has a number of active bloggers, and without further ado, here they are!

  • A Girl and Her Bike: Kate is keeping up with her 30 Days of Biking riding and posting here and at Tales from the Sharrows too. You can catch up with her via Twitter at @girlonabikedc. What you may not learn unless you dig a bit more is that she’s a DC police officer and once got hit on her bike by a guy who did it deliberately, then tried to get away with it. Bad idea. That particular post has great advice in case you’re involved in a hit and run, by the way. (Hint: The police arrest drivers, not cars; go ahead and memorize the license plate if you can but get a really good look at the driver and passengers first.)
  • Bicycling to Work: Char blogs about her 14-mile daily round trip into DC with stories about chains, reflective vests, and all that good commute stuff.
  • CAWES Cycling: Racers with nicknames like Princess Leah, Raspa, Grizzly, and Lemming blog here about their experiences trying to move up in category, win, or just survive, and their work to support the IM Able Foundation, which works to inspire “all individuals, disabled and able-bodied, realize the potential to go further and push harder than their preconceived limits.” (I’m heading over to post a link about this on the Veterans’ Day post I wrote about groups and efforts like this.)
  • Chasing Mailboxes: She’s @gypsybug on Twitter and she rides some seriously crazy mileage in addition to commuting!
  • Mastering the Uphill Shift: @BloomingCyclist tells it like she sees it, including stories of those times when a ride doesn’t turn out all that great. She also hangs out on Tumblr at The Uphill Shift, where you’ll find a big set of photos of male bike-racing hotties. Enjoy!
  • Pedal ‘n’ Purl: @nikki_d bikes and knits, a combination I run across frequently in these blogs (hey, that would make for a great blogspedition! Coming soon.) and writes about her canning over at Gin and Pickles (getting pickled more than one way?).
  • Sticky Femme: Her Tumblr site mostly consists of very happy photos of dates with her sweetie and mentions of fabulous restaurants. This is a key site for me since I’m going to be eating out a lot this coming week! She’s @stickyfemme on Twitter.
  • Where the Bike Takes Me: It’s defunct (last post in 2009) but I’m capturing it here for posterity. It may symbolize a stat I just got from Andrea (soon to be a guest blogger here!), that 95% of all personal blogs are abandoned. It’s just possible that the final post’s reference to an “ever-growing belly” means that motherhood took over blogging time….
  • Will Bike for Change (or Pie!): My favorite title of all of these! She offers up a great mix of ride reports and passionate advocacy, and who doesn’t love pie? I’m thinking we’re long-lost sisters. She’s @willbikeforchange on Twitter.

  • Do you have any travel plans coming up?
  • Do they involve riding a bike?
  • Have any special requests for a blogspedition? Doesn’t have to be geographical–could be thematic (like the knitting bikers/biking knitters one mentioned above) or based on anything I might be able to tease out of the list.

Around the World in 80 Days (and then Some): A Traveling Blogspedition

World map from 1808How would you like to bike around the world, meet people, share food with them, and blog about the connections you create in the process?

Yeah, me too. Amie Thao and partner Olli Tumelius are cycling across Europe and Asia, the world’s largest land mass, to document people, stories, and cuisines at their site, International Supper Club. Amie got in touch to let me know about their Kickstarter campaign to help fund the trip and I wanted to share it with you all.

A couple of notes from their blog:

“Why cycling? Human-powered, environmentally-friendly, cost-effective and fun. On bikes we are fast enough to cross deserts without going insane and slow enough to say hello to everybody along the way.

“Why food? Besides being delicious, food serves as a catalyst for storytelling and grounds the story in a tangible way.”

If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a means of crowdsourcing a creative project that lets all of us be little tiny investors (or great big investors) in cool projects that speak to our hearts, not just to our wallets.

Amie and Ollie join a great group of world-traveling people on bikes I’ve gotten to know a bit about through the process of compiling the Women’s Bike Blog list. Thus they inspire this blogspedition:

  • Family on Bikes: The Vogel family biked from Alaska to Argentina; their kids now hold the world record as the youngest ever to cycle the Pan-American Highway.
  • Travelling Two: Friedel & Andrew have cycled in 33 countries.
  • Cycling Silk: Kate and Melissa cycled the Silk Road (again) in 2011.
  • World by Cycle: Kristina and Nic are cycling around the world in 2012.
  • Cycling Gypsies: In 2008 Zoa and Fin quit their jobs and packed their ginormous dogs into bike trailers to head out around the world. They haven’t stopped.
  • Bicycling Around the World: Paul and Grace are photographing their way by bike.

Pedestrian Tourist Impressions of New York Biking

Cycle Cafe, New York City

It's exactly what the name suggests: Food in the front, bikes in the bike (sales and rentals). This is one door away from the hotel we picked booking online--it's karma!

My first view of biking in New York City came through the window of the SuperShuttle from LaGuardia: A young white guy in tan shorts wearing a helmet, clipped in on a road bike, blinky on his backpack, taking the lane and cheating the red to anticipate the green light that was about to change in his favor but hadn’t yet when he wove his way through a sea of drivers in a way I would never do even in lil old Spokane, let alone New York.

The second guy, dark-skinned, rode against the one-way on his low-slung bike wearing a ball cap and a hoodie pulled up over it, no helmet.

#3 was a guy on the sidewalk with a flashing headlight. Number four was on a separated bikepath on what I think was the Hudson bridge.

And finally, number five, actually spotted by Second Daughter for me: a woman wearing a helmet standing with her bike at a stoplight.

Number six powering up a hill on a side street, number seven a kid ducking up onto a sidewalk and then popping into the crosswalk—I stopped counting them as individuals as we got farther and farther into Manhattan.

We chose our hotel based on three factors: location (proximity to the studios where my younger daughter is auditioning for several musical theater college programs), price, and my daughter’s love of the French toile wallpaper in the pictures.

When we got here, we found out that not only are we literally next door to the Eugene O’Neill Theater (where “Book of Mormon” is currently showing), but we have a wonderful amenity right on the other side, as shown in the picture above.

On the High Line next to an intriguing wire and wood sculpture. This elevated pedestrian walkway is a converted freight rail line. No bikes allowed but when you're on it you understand. It's peaceful and leisurely up there and not the least bit touristy.

So far I haven’t ridden a bike here yet. But I’ve gotten to see special green-painted bike lanes and a bike-specific traffic signal (so cute! A little picture of a bike) and we walked on the High Line, a converted freight rail line that makes a wonderful urban pathway in a neighborhood near the Hudson River.

Bikes are everywhere. Bike racks abound. Lots of people here need to grease their chains—I hear them coming as they chirp-chirp-chirp down the street. Some wear helmets but most don’t, which gives me anxious little flutters on their behalf as I watch taxis veering around them with a beep of the horn. I have yet to see any seriously fashionable high-heeled women on bikes but I keep looking.

I mentioned on Twitter that I’m here and got advice from some of the women’s bike bloggers I highlighted in my NYC blogspedition. Bicycle Habitat, one of the great shops that was recommended, was on top of their social media game and tweeted that I should stop by, along with a recommendation for a tourist bike ride I’m hoping to get to take sometime in the next couple of days.

We’re walking like crazy, of course, and taking the subways. It is so amazingly easy to get around without a car in a metro area that has transit service.

I ❤ New York!

New York, New York: The Blogspedition Visits The City that Never Sleeps

Thanks to the Women’s Bike Blog list I can get a taste of New York biking life before I get there. Herewith a round-up of the blogs I’ve collected from New York City. They all give me different voices and views and I love the local insights.

I get to chat with some of them occasionally on Twitter and have reached out to ask what I should check out while I’m in New York. We’re now tweeting about the possibility of a women’s bike blog tweet-up (live meeting of people who know each other via Twitter). I love the community I’ve found through the simple mechanism of starting a list!

  • Sheryl Yvette: Love her attitude! She’s a glamour girl who blogs about her Weight Watchers and fitness. She also blogs at High Heels and Two Wheels on the Weight Watchers site. Twitter: @SherylYvette and @bitchcakesny
  • Houdini and Me: This blogger named her dog Houdini and her bike Martha Stewart. In the “it’s a small world” category she’s also an actress, which I thought was cool when I spotted that originally since Second Daughter is planning to embark on musical theater studies. Twitter: @HoudiniAndMe
  • The Fun Between My Legs: Points for title creativity! And have to love the 25-year-old author’s bio: “Lewd, crude and tattooed newlywed and stepmom living on a cruiser bicycle in the nitty gritty.” Twitter: @M3s0
  • The Bike Writer: 20-something Mandi commutes daily from Queens to Union Square so she knows city riding! If I were heading to New York to participate in a specific big bike tour I would definitely read her reviews before committing. Twitter: @thebikewriter
  • The Julie Blog: Julie rides a great-looking Linus Dutchie bike she has accessorized in pink. I love it. And she’s been on the Martha Stewart show to show how to make her pretty silk bead necklace. Twitter: @juleskills
  • Velojoy: She contributes to Momentum Magazine, which I read. Reading a guest blog post on winter bike cleaning may inspire me, since as I noted in a recent winter ride report the road is making for a pretty grimy bike these days. Twitter: @velojoy
  • The Monday Biker: She has a Brompton folding bike I’d love to get a look at. I learned a new term from one of her December posts: “Panda bike photography” is a picture taken of yourself, by yourself, while on your bike. I may have to try this when the roads aren’t slippery.
  • For the Love of Bikes: I love the illustration at the top of this blog: A bike with hearts in the spokes and pedals. A recent post tells me about a Greek restaurant I may have to check out: Souvlaki GR’s on the Lower East Side. You Downton Abbey fans should catch this post on the show’s bikes. Twitter: @4theloveofbikes
  • Inspired Cyclist: She posts some great ride photos—I loved her round-up for Thanksgiving. Twitter: @inspiredcyclist
  • A Packable Feast: Mostly writes about creative lunches—well beyond the PBH and carrot sticks my mom used to pack!—but also gets in a little biking now and then.
  • Adeline Adeline: A blog from a shop I hope to visit.
  • Changing Amy: She blogs from the Bronx about the weight-loss roller coaster she’s on.
  • Brooklyn by Bike: Title pretty  much says it all! Twitter: brooklynbybike
  • Mid-Life Cycling: Blogging and biking in Queens. I appreciate her voice—you’ll get a great understanding for who she is from this post.

A few possibly defunct ones but I know blogging can lapse and start again:

  • This Side of the Blue: Last posted in 2009.
  • Thoughts from the Bubble: Last posted in July 2011.
  • Thoughts of Mint Green: Last posted in April 2011.
  • Squid Knits: Last posted in September 2011. I’ve found quite a few knitting bikers in my rounds of women’s bike blogs.
  • Dykes on BiCycles: Site says it’s under reconstruction and they haven’t said anything on Twitter since last June, so…. Twitter: @dob_c
  • FixiePostcard: Be ready for the autoplay sound on the site. Last post May 2011 and the Twitter account she used to have no longer has the @fixiepostcard name so I can’t find it.

Looking for a Bite/Bike of the Big Apple: The Bikespedition Heads to New York City

Thanks to the talents of Second Daughter, I head to New York City this week. She will audition for several performing arts programs at the colleges she has targeted through diligent research. I will sit and knit in Stage Mom mode while she sings, dances, and delivers the monologues she’s been practicing upstairs.

I also hope to get out on the street and check out a few bike-related destinations. It will be co-o-o-old February,  and the New York bike share system isn’t yet up and running so I think I’m talking about taking transit, walking and looking. It should still be inspiring.

I plan to take some pictures while I’m there and post my fuzzy-cell-phone-images impressions of biking in New York to share the experience with you–a bikespedition of a different sort.

Here’s a partial list of things I hope to see and do and a few New York bike resources. If you’ve biked New York I’d love your recommendations for the must-see elements.

  • NYC Bike Share: I don’t get to do this! It’s launching summer 2012. I’m just noting it here as a future bike attraction. If I get to ride at all in New York it will be because some kind person lends me a bike and a helmet.
  • The High Line: A public park built on an elevated freight line that was transformed into a linear park.
  • Times Square: Sort of a “well, of course” for a trip to New York that revolves around theater, but my reason for being excited is that this will be my first trip to New York since they closed Times Square to vehicular traffic. (Can you say “transportation geek”?)
  • Adeline Adeline: Eldest Daughter gave me a way-cool ringy-dingy bike bell for Christmas that came from this shop. I’ve followed them on Twitter for quite a while thanks to discovering them through my compilation of the Women Bike Blogs list. I have a feeling they’re like the shop I would open if Bike Style Spokane ever became a storefront.
  • Bike New York: General resource site I’ll try to read through since I can only imagine how much hairier biking is in a city the size of New York compared to tame little Spokane!
  • New York City Bike Maps: Looking at the bike map of Manhattan they have the exact same situation as Spokane does: Bike lanes that stop and start. But seeing them installed in a major metro area with far more traffic than Spokane should reinforce my belief that we can have an outstanding bike network here at home. If they can make room for bike lanes in NYC, with some of the world’s priciest real estate underfoot, surely Spokane can!
  • Riding in general: We’ll be staying in the Theater District. Everything in New York feels close together to me—it’s either a walk or a subway ride away with no parking hassle or expense—and I’d love it if I could find a way to ride a bike through Central Park or Greenwich Village.
  • Celebrity spotting: Since lots of famous actors and actresses live in New York City, and quite a few have been known to ride bikes, I may spot someone famous on two wheels. Not quite as exciting as meeting Mia Birk, but still.

Back to the talents of Second Daughter, I just have to share a taste. I wish the sound were really true to her voice but I just appreciate having any kind of video record at all.

Capturing Bike Beauty and Inspiration: Adventure Cycling’s Bike Travel Photo Contest

Eric Abbott and Barb Chamberlain on a bike ride.

On a local bike adventure with my sweetheart: a ride of around 84 miles to Coeur d'Alene and back summer 2010. Stopped at the Liberty Lake Starbucks to say hi to the Belles and Baskets ladies and friend Angie Feser took this photo.

I have yet to venture forth for any “adventure cycling” beyond Tour des Lacs a few years ago and the adventure that awaits when we go bikespeditioning for treats and shopping, but I can’t wait to see the beautiful photos that will be submitted to the upcoming 3rd Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest from Adventure Cycling.

They’re looking for beautiful photography representing the beauty, inspiration, and spirit of bike touring. Original images in digital format, capturing all aspects of bike travel, are eligible for the competition. Deadline is November 30.

Adventure Cycling is especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bike-touring experiences: road and dirt riding, rural and urban settings, scenery, people, and their emotions. For some examples, check out the “Adventure Cyclist” feature (PDF format) on last year’s winners.

The winner’s image will be printed in the February 2012 issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine, reaching over 50,000 people worldwide. The image will also be featured on Adventure Cycling’s Website, which is visited by more than a million people annually. The first-place winner will also receive a two-year membership with Adventure Cycling and a $100 gift certificate for the Cyclosource store.

Enter the contest today. Katherine Widing, a bike travel writer who lives in Spokane, and Wilma Flanagan of Belles and Baskets who went to The Netherlands this summer, how about it?

On a Roll with Katherine Widing

Katherine Widing, travel author, on a bike tour in The Netherlands with her bike.

Travel writer Katherine Widing on her latest trip to The Netherlands for a biking/writing tour.

Name: Katherine Widing

Location: Spokane, WA

About Katherine:

Born in Melbourne, Australia. Lived in USA since 1985, with short sojourns in France and the Netherlands. Freelance writer and author of four books on international bicycle touring. Volunteer on Spokane Summer Parkways committee. Addicted to bicycling, travel and chocolate.

Who or what made a difference in your life that got you on a bike?

Being an Australian, I’m from a place where most kids ride bikes, so it was natural for me to want to ride a bike as soon as I could, to ride to school, hang out with my friends, do errands, ride to the beach. Thanks to my patient father, who ran behind my bike and held the saddle to give me confidence while I found my balance, I learned to ride a bike. One day he didn’t tell me he’d let go and off I went at 5 years old, and I have never stopped pedaling.

Tell me about your bike(s) and accessories.

How many pages do I have for this answer?

I have three “steeds” in my Spokane stable aka garage: an old Bianchi mixte, a Trek hybrid, and a Bike Friday (folding bike with 20″ wheels that fits in a suitcase). My newest bike, bike #4, is a result of getting annoyed with the hassles airlines have created for cyclists travelling with bikes. I recently took a Dahon Espresso (26″ wheel folding bike) to Europe, and it now lives there with friends waiting there for me (at $150-$200 each way for a bike on the plane, the pain of packing a bike and the worry of damage in transit –after 2 round trips the bike is paid for!!!). And I will always have a bike in Europe 🙂

My bikes are my primary mode of transport, both at home and abroad. ALL my bikes have rear racks and I have assorted panniers. For travelling/touring, my favorites are my Ortlieb waterproof back rollers. I have a pannier fetish, and my bike could don a different pannier for every day of the week. For commuting/shopping etc., I have a variety of panniers collected over the years from a Dutch briefcase to a Jandd grocery bag pannier. I love my handy rear trunk bag for day rides, and find that for touring my Ortlieb waterproof handlebar bag is essential. All my bikes have a computer, fenders, bell and lights. My latest purchase is a map case that attaches to the handlebars, indispensible for bicycle touring.

What type(s) of riding do you do? How often, what destinations, and how far?

I ride every day from short rides to do errands to a longer recreational ride on the Centennial Trail, the Fish Lake Trail, or further afield in the Palouse, Seattle or the San Juan Islands.I love joining the Belles and Baskets and FBC for fun, social rides.

For longer touring adventures I have cycled in Australia, California, Utah, Hawaii, and Europe, my favorite European countries being the Netherlands, France and Luxembourg. My trips can be anywhere from a week to 2 months – distances varying from 25 to 70 miles a day.

What’s the most common question you get asked when you bike somewhere?

“Are you alone?”  I do so much self-supported solo touring in Europe that people I meet en route expect me to have a cycling companion. Often people are surprised to find me as a woman cycling alone.

What do you usually wear when you ride?

I always wear padded bike shorts and gloves. I have all the appropriate gear such as tights, leg warmers, and jerseys for long distance rides. However for riding around town, I often ride in whatever I have on, and add my helmet and a highly visible bright vest or jacket. I love my Burley rain jacket and Craft windstopper pants for chilly, rainy days!

What things do you wish were different about your bike and gear or women’s clothing or both that would make it easier to bike and look good, if this is something you give any thought to?

I am not very fashion conscious, but I do look out for tops, t-shirts, and jerseys with fun designs from polka dots to stripes in bright colors for maximum visibility. My next purchase will be one of Bike Style’s cute Nuu-Muus in one of the fabulous colorful patterns. If there is one thing I wish someone would invent for cyclists, it would be mini windshield wipers for glasses, so I could see in the rain!

What does Spokane need to make it an even better place for women to ride their bikes?

More bike lanes and drivers who are more attentive to cyclists on the road. More bike racks in strategic locations. I wish the city could afford to re-pave and smooth out the cracked, potholed and lumpy road surfaces. I ride up and down Adams and Jefferson on South Hill at least once a day, and I always feel like I’m in training for the Paris-Roubaix (one of the toughest European road races that takes place in northern France on cobblestones and unpaved roads!).

What’s your proudest biking accomplishment?

Getting back on my bike several months after being hit by a “casino tour” bus, and severely injured.

What one word describes the way you feel most often when you ride?

Happy.

What question didn’t I ask that you really want to answer?

What is my global cycling vision?

Obviously to see more people out riding bikes, but especially as an everyday mode of transport. People should see cycling as a way of life—to shop, commute, run errands, visit friends, go out to dinner and recreation. We should take a lesson from the Dutch where cycling is the norm!
