What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Albany to Chicago, returning here, the Freihofer's Run for Women, Karner Blue paradise, Pharaoh Mountain, Schodack Island, Lake George, four good people, a foraged dinner, the restaurant industry, like a moth, beer, burgers, a bright smudge, photos, and China.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
