Keeping Calm on Worth Avenue, Palm Beach

I snagged this great shot during recent trip to Palm Beach. If you look closely, you can see my reflection in the window.

Out and About: Anna Maria Island, FL

This past week I spent some vacation time out on the beautiful Anna Maria Island. Its a wonderful place to see by bike. We found a great company called Fun And More Rentals. We called, they delivered bikes to our hotel...we checked out of hotel, they picked up the bikes. It was the most laid back bike rental process I've ever experienced. Highly recommend.

On the Streets of Lakeland: Pedal In Plaid Social Ride

The Event: Pedal In Plaid
The Location: Downtown Lakeland, FL
The Lowdown: I like to say that Lakeland is a small town with big bike love. This was evident last night for the first Pedal In Plaid social bike ride. Heavy rains just prior to event, followed by hot sun and extremely muggy conditions deterred many, but the faithful showed up and we had a collection of all bike styles and bike cultures. There is talk of making this type of social ride a regular event for Lakeland First Fridays. Big thanks to Mitchell's Coffee House for having lots of lemonade, water and big platter of homemade goodies for all the bikers after the ride.

My New Social Media Calling Cards

I needed something to hand out to people that let me take their picture for my blog. I was just overwhelmed when my friends over at A Fine Press designed this beautiful letterpress card. It has been a hit.
