Sometimes I need to remind myself that I live in a coastal city. A few snapshots of my morning ride to Cleveland's lakefront and near west side.

A block from my hotel in the beautiful, ancient, practical cycling pinnacle of Lund, Sweden.

This parking lot turned into a farmer's market of sorts.





It's a really, really neat town.

I frickin' love Scandinavia. It's like a second home. I've spent a lot of time in Copenhagen across the Oresund. Have a great trip!

It's really, really nice. I took the train from CPH, but didn't get to spend any time there. If everything goes well and I decide to move here soon I'll spend some time in Denmark.

the bike room (and gallery)

This used to be a living room, but it wasn't used too much, so it got converted.

Good eye! I picked it up from another forum member as a bare frame. Built up with a Suntour Sprint drivetrain and a mix of miscellaneous other parts that I had laying around.
