If it weren't for the heartstrings pulling me back for the Harvest Fair in Granville, MA, I would have been part of Eric Staller's ConferenceBike Tour making its way across the US. This kinetic creation breaks down many barriers by its mere existence. When Eric helped me get it donated for a weekend by Hammacher-Schlemmer for AltWheels in 2004, I was amazed by how many people immediately broke into smiles and excited chatter when they climbed on.
I've been out on the Alaris. I rode Tuesday morning at 5:40. It's early, but the chill in the air and the lack of traffic make for a poetic calm that is worth the abrupt introduction to the day. I was in bed at 9:30 that night...totally whipped. I'll do it again tomorrow. Forecast, 36 degrees and clear.
Did I catch you with the Harvest Fair link? I was amazed that it was in another blog.
