This past Sat. was Gallery Hop and what a fantastic day / evening it turned out to be! I spent most of the day in the sun and loved it. I met my friend John down at Paradise Garage where we obtained a hefty amount of signatures for a current campaign I’m working on called ‘Connect the Core.’ It is a campaign to accelerate on-road bicycle infrastructure (bike lanes, dedicated bike lanes, etc) throughout our urban core. When obtaining signatures, I was surprised at how many folks didn’t necessarily ‘ride’ frequently yet they were very willing to sign the petition in support of the campaign. I was also focused on gaining ‘family’ signatures b/c I really want to work towards getting more families and women on the roads, feeling confident and secure. If you’re in support of roads safer for ALL users go to http://www.considerbiking.org, click on ‘Get Involved’ up at the top and you’ll see ‘Connect the Core’ right after that.
Now, while obtaining signatures, I was able to capture a few fun pictures of other riders enjoying the evening. I also rolled up to Gallery Hop in style as you will see in a couple of the pics below
A big group of BMX riders during G-Hop. I didn’t get all of them but here’s a group of them.
Josh and girlfriend Rachel enjoying the weather and stopping by to say ‘hello.’
‘Bike thieves shot on site.’ I had to photo this up close. I’m not sure I’d shoot them, I’d rather u-lock them in the face.

This is my Sophie, pre-take off to G-hop. I had my six pack holder all ready. My good friend Russian bought me New Belgium (I’m a fanatic for their beer) and Emily and Dan of Paradise Garage are fans as well. Nothing like sharing a couple beers to people who really appreciate beers
The six-packer hold held up fantastic. My sister-n-law bought me this. I mentioned it to her a long time ago and she remembered! I love it!
