Trampoline parks, especially for kids’ parties, are overwhelming.

Some seriously loud bangs in the Northside a few minutes ago, like…shotgun blasts? Backfiring car? Seemed louder than a gunshot, but not sure what it is/was.

Ugh, is there really no bike route out to/past Mechanicsville that doesn’t put me on a 4 lane road for a segment or two?

Trying to string together something like Northside > Mechanicsville > RIC > Cap Trail back into the city, and all options look kinda crummy.

I’ve always enjoyed James Hoffmann’s videos for their information and instruction, delivered with enthusiasm, entertainment, and no judgement. His latest is quite different—an artful, visual contemplation of what makes a “great” cup of coffee: youtu.be/IkssYHTSp…

Slowly, sporadically formulating a working theory in my head about how our perceived bright spots in creative media mask and/or distract from things we normally dislike.

E.g. instrumental skill covering up Ben Folds’ off-pitch vocals.

I know I’ve somewhat cartoonishly become a local “bike guy”, but in reality I feel like I’m becoming somethingng worse, something darker.

I’m becoming outdoorsy.

Rode a little on the new contra-flow bike lane on Norfolk Ave. in Scott’s Addition this afternoon. So glad to have that, but would be much happier if it at least had pylons or better, given the high speed one-way traffic in the other direction.

How am I a magnet for local media? Just had to politely decline an RTD reporter who knocked on my door asking about traffic on Chamberlayne.

I’ve been in the paper for comments on Scott’s Addition, CBS6 talking about my council person, and several other times in the past for a variety of reasons :-P

Man, I’m glad I have an indoor trainer so I can keep up my riding fitness/saddle toughness, but this rain has me starting to haaaaaaate indoor riding. No amount of variety in Zwift can replace even the most mundane route around town.

If you look really close, you’ll notice a li’l skelly riding in the back.

I figure I should start posting some of my ride photos on here, too.

So…turns out there’s overwhelming support for the Richmond Ivy women’s soccer team on its opening night. I’m super happy to see this level of enthusiasm, but kinda bummed I underestimated it because we couldn’t get in 🙃

Today is my younger kid’s 8th birthday! He’s goofy, a video game addict, and the sweetest, most sensitive kid I know.

Happy birthday little dude. I love you so much.

I feel like Dragon Prince’s writing went downhill in S4, and S5 isn’t really changing my mind.

One final elementary school bike-to-school day for my daughter, and a first for my son.

I kinda want to make a bike check video with everything I’ve done to my Space Horse, but I don’t want to be a whole bike YouTuber guy. I worry too much about what other people think, but I should probably just do it.

I’ve got electric guitar, I play my stupid songs I write these stupid words, and I love every one Waiting there for me, yes I do, I do

@ploafmaster alternately if you pick berries in the Irish town of Dingle (on the Dingle Peninsula), you may likely enjoy them, provided they are ripe.
