Defeating global warming and brain tumors

You can see on the map below how I'm doing both of those tomorrow. My ride takes me through a WABA-sponsored pit stop for Bike-to-Work Day and it's part of my training for my brain tumor ride.

And it's almost double the length of my normal commute route, so I need to get to bed so I'll have enough energy to make it to work.

It's funny, this ride makes me think of Princess Bride, tweaked a little...

"Good luck saving the world!"
"Do you think it'll work?"
"Not a chance."
"Bye bye."
"Bye bye."
Good night, Gracie.

  1. If you’re in A Princess Bride mode, you should get a shirt that says “My name is Papa Bradstein. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” to wear during your ride.

    Or you could just wear this:

  2. Genius on both counts. This is why you're my brilliant cousin.

  3. The things we do for free food. Nobody fed me on my rides last week. They probably either blew away, or they were downtown which I avoid. Should I still ride places this week too? I rode to the pool yesterday and school today, but my son thinks I should drop him off and pick him up in the car. In different places. On the same day. Just wait.

  4. Oh, and for my brilliant cousin, I actually saw someone in the grocery store with one of those. He was shopping with the wife and kids.

  5. Bike Snob NYC had the best idea to get more people riding their bikes to work: Drive to Work Day. He figures that if everyone drove on one day, it would be so painful that nobody would ever want to drive again. Taking drivers off the road and having them bike in only makes it easier for the rest of the drivers. Then again, do I really want everyone biking in? This morning again the bike trail was backed up like the skies over O'Hare on Thanksgiving weekend.
