    kennyschickposter.jpgKENNY SCHICK ~ Live at the ‘Drome!

    Just in case you wanted to listen to some kickass music while you watch people go in circles.

    Directions to the track are here.

    Speaking of Biker Friends ~

    Check out this awesome program that the Bicycle Trip in Santa Cruz is putting together.

    bike_school_awesomeness.jpgThis is VERY important stuff … well, from the opinion of a person involved in public health. It’s striking us all, that more and more ~ the modern lifestyle is one of valuing physical activity less and less.

    And weirdly, our culture seems to be losing an appreciation of the beauties and sublime pleasures of physical activity in the outdoors. But, maybe that’s just my interpretation of our culture.

    Nonetheless, the folks at Bicycle Trip are reaching out to youth and offering them glimpses of what fun and benefit one gets when soaking in movement, diving into the outside world … getting away from that damnable idiot-box, if you know what i mean.

    Now, it’s kind of subversive … what they’re doing … disguising the program as a “bike shop” at the school … but what they’re really doing is kicking interest in youth about bikes, and riding, and laughing it up with the heart rate above tv-eating levels.

    hell yeah. check them out, and if you’ve got a few extra bucks … think about becoming a sponsor. Contact Julie Mitchell if you want more info, julie @ bicycletrip.com.
