Because I’m a Star Wars Fan
To celebrate my history as a super nerd, and to celebrate the opening of the very last film in the “Skywalker Saga”, I thought I would post a little bit of history regarding my adventures in line for the Star Wars prequels over 20 years ago.
Building a Holiday Bike
As a person who grew up loving my bike(s), I have a desire to share with the younger generation all of the wonder and fun that riding has to offer. To that end, I try to donate one bike every year to a kid around the holidays. It’s easy, it’s not too expensive, and it is an great way to expose any community not just to bike building but also local charitable organizations.
Life Behind Bars
I grew up in the 1970s in what is now called Silicon Valley. Cycling (we called it dirt biking back then) was hammered into my very core by all the insane kids on our suburban street. When we arrived around 1975, there was a fairly prolific motocross family living across the street from us. I had never heard of motocross, being only 5 years old, but these new kids looked super rad and I just HAD to be doing what they were doing; riding bikes everywhere and working hard to see who could get to the emergency room first.
