Hallie Ford, B on B make for Excellent Last Friday

Bookended by Breakfast on Bikes and the Hallie Ford opening, Friday was a great day!

The bike racks were full at the Ford and a significant proportion of the visitors opening night had got there by leaving the car at home.

And, well, the show is fabulous.

Rick Bartow's Salmon Chant is haunting and gorgeous. And it's not the only haunting and gorgeous work in the show! Here's a slide show of some of the other pieces, and thoughts on the specific transportation issues some of the other artists raise.

Just go see it!

The day started off with Breakfast on Bikes at Mission & Winter, and here Rich, Gary, and Tim talk about the MyPeace project and sustainable transportation.

The mornings are turning crisp, the crickets are chirping, and the leaves just beginning to fall.

Encourage your friends and family to make another change! The Bike Commute Challenge starts next week!

Good to see you at the museum. I agree that it's a really awesome exhibition and I hope many people see it! It gives you a lot to think about.

And likewise at the Solar + Green Tour planning meeting! That will be a fun day!

Have you been back to the show? I'm looking forward to revisiting and continuing the conversation with some pieces! - which ones gain with additional time and viewing, and which seem less impressive the second time around?
