This an online journal of the self-supported bicycle tour that I'm currently (October, 2018) doing. It uses the new-ish CycleBlaze platform for bike touring journals.
I got an old GoPro camera (mostly) working, so here is a a YouTube channel for anyone wanting to see how it is to ride a bicycle around southern Maine (the north-eastest of the northeast US). [more inside]
This year I participated in my first Open Studios event. It was the culmination of nearly four years of learning stained glass and the first time I've ever shown my work publically. In preparation for the event, I put together a website and my brother, a graphic designer, created a logo for my studio. In addition to glass, I brought along several pieces of my bicycle taxidermy. I created a couple of these years ago after seeing Picasso's Cabeza de Toro, but received quite a bit of encouragement to produce more for show. [more inside]
For the last few years, I have traveled by bicycle with a 35mm camera and shot photos along the way. I am scanning and posting one image a day. [more inside]
A super-simple webapp for keeping on top of bike maintenance jobs. Record your mileage weekly (or as often as you like) and it'll tell you how many miles you've done since you last cleaned your chain / changed your brake pads / checked your tyre pressure / etc. Free, no sign-up required - everything is done from a single web page. Comments/bugs/typos/suggestions welcome.

The ultrahip soundtrack is inspired by Trurl's illuminating "Syd Dale, Legend of Library" post from Saturday. [more inside]
You may remember the AskMe describing the prick who gums bikes locked up outside of my apartment. In response to the demands of MeFites, emilyd22222 and I have created a blog to document our progress in tracking and capturing the one we now refer to as The Gum Bandit. We document gummings and strategic progress. There's opportunity for troubleshooting for technologically savvy Mefites, as well as some miscellany for fun.
I built a recumbent (delta style) trike out of three salvaged bikes, plywood and other miscellaneous stuff. No welding. The link provides all the details of the project. Inspiration for you to build one, too.
I decided to build a bike. From nothing. This is that attempt. [more inside]
