My first bicycle was Huffy BMX bought for me by my parents when I was a youngster. I really came into my own cycling-wise when I moved to Duluth, MN in 2006. I started doing all of my in-town travel via bicycle and even lived for a period without a car. I now have a good understanding of the meaningful balance between car and bike specific transportation needs and hope to continue this successfully and sustainabily into the future.
My fascination with bicycles as a means of transport reached it's height when I opted to move from one apartment to another using only a bicycle and bike trailer in 2008. It worked so well that I proceeded to do it twice more in following years. The first short video was shot by a friend and the second two I put together to document the process.
In May of 2014 I participated in the 11th PechaKucha Bozeman with my presentation of "Practical Bicycling in Bozeman and Beyond". The format for PechaKucha is the display of 20 photo slides for 20 seconds apiece. As a proponent of bicycles as a means of everyday transportation I felt it would be a worthy topic to share with the community.
