Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Iceland's most famous textile
It cost me ISK 19,900 (about $165), but it's nearly impossible to come all this way and not find at least one. It's expertly hand knitted and not scratchy, despite being made from Icelandic wool. I think it's a nice balance of tradition and contemporary color, plus I know I'll use it in Seattle, because it's so similiar in weather it's uncanny. Like everything here, expensive but high quality. I know how to knit and I admire this person's skill.
