There is more to life than increasing speed–Ghandi

December 31, 2009

FFARTRIDE 2010–The New Year’s Day Ride: It’s up to YOU!

“There is more to life than increasing its speed,” advocates Gandhi.

This saying by Ghandi may be my motto for 2010. Let’s go on some nice, slow, fun rides–on bikes and in life in general.

Speaking of bike rides, the First Friday ArtRide is up to YOU! I know some people are in town and would like to go–so SHOW! Head on over around 5:30pm to the Ventura Beach Promenade with lights on your bike for when it gets dark and join the band to ride around town and celebrate the New Year. The Ride usually leaves around 6pm. I’m not sure if “First Friday” is happening in Ventucky or not but it will still be fun to get out there and ride.

We won’t be along for the ride in Ventucky since we’re in Flagstaff AZ–a major cycling town. We saw these bikes as we walked around town the other night. Almost every ballard has bikes attached to it. We’ve got our bikes with us and as it’s stopped snowing for the moment, we may even get a chance to go for a ride. Maybe we’ll ride on Flagstaff’s First Friday Art Night which is tomorrow also. I ran into a friend of mine from my days in Reno who now lives here and she’s psyched to get them going.

Happy New Year! See you on bikes!
