I’ve been organising this lovely bike ride from Bristol to Bath and back. We just cycled our fourth journey. It’s so lovely, spending the day with friends (a mix of friends, and my separate pockets of friends are becoming friends with each other and friends are bringing their separate friends and integrating them too.) I want to extend it more to others – maybe on Twitter more. And now it’s Spring, the weather wil be on our side more, and more time can be spent in the lovely beer gardens in Bath and between. On the this bike ride, I took some bike portraits of the eight of us, a nice little record.
I am hunched cyclist myself, complete with a stuffed backpack. I like seeing fellow hunched cyclists (mostly hunched over racers) and I would like to draw one. In the meantime, I found these images to remind me of the hunch.
In lots of places, lots of people are doing some extraordinary things. This morning, after a good long Skype with my sister in New Zealand, I knew I wanted to do some blogging, find some new stuff, get on twitter, snoop around the internet a bit. So here’s a great thing I found:
Getting a response – 5 points (unless it’s aggressive or rude)
Getting a conversation – 10 points
Getting a joke – 20 points
He’s noting down his efforts and scores on the blog, like this:
I’m inspired by this and want to start my own mission – both whilst cycling around Bristol and walking around, and I’ll even count when I’m in my car – most people have their windows wound down in the sun.
