 Team rider Alex crushing the Rockies during @ridetherocks #WheelTalk #WheelTalkRoad #OutsideIsFree  Survived Tropical Storm Bill. #WheelTalk #WheelTalkRoad #ATX  Cool catching up with @paramourbicycles tonight at the @mellowjohnnys Frame Builder Showcase. #ParamourBicycles #WheelTalk #WheelTalkRoad  That one time you go out for a ride without a patch kit or spare tube and get a flat 3 miles from home. #WheelTalk #WheelTalkRoad #ATX
 #WheelTalk #ATX #WheelTalkRoad  Nice mini Wheel Talk - TVC reunion ride. #WheelTalk #WheelTalkWednesday #WheelTalkRoad  Like Gilroy, it gets hot early in Texas. Unlike Gilroy, it is humid and does not cool off at night. #WheelTalk #WheelTalkWednesday #WheelTalkRoad  It feels good to be in the saddle. Thanks for getting me rolling again @bicyclesportshop #WheelTalk #WheelTalkRoad #newbikeday

A few weeks back while everyone was posting their NAHBS write-ups I spent the afternoon with local custom frame builder Matt Mowat of Paramour Bicycles. It was a good afternoon with great conversation ranging from bikes, bike history, frame building, beer, and places to ride in Austin.

The Stolen Ride

12/04/2014

It was a rainy Thursday morning when I got to work in San Francisco. For the past few weeks I have been doing my new daily commute of taking CalTrain from Gilroy to San Francisco and then taking CalTrain to San Jose after work and riding the remaining 21 miles to Gilroy. On this Thursday I locked my bike up like I had multiple times before. I had a couple of assumptions. First, I never had any issues locking up my bike at work since the bike rack was wedged between our building and Charles Schwab building. Why should today be any different?  Second, I figured since there were two cameras pointed at the racks no one would really try to steal a bike in such a high traffic/high visibility site. With these security measures why should I use the bike cage in the garage of the building?

The path lights up with a combination of glow-in-the-dark pebbles and solar-powered LED’s.
