Biking in a Box is HERE!
This Friday is going to be a great time to hang out in Uptown. The Bryant Lake Bowl's annual Uptown Pride Block Party is going down, and Grease Rag is having a party at the Biking in a Box space at 2441 Lyndale Ave.!
Pre-party at the BLB and then come on over, or vice versa! It looks like there's going to be some precipitation: we have a roof. =]
This is going to be fun! Grease Rag is going to have baked goods for $donations$, music, dancing... BYOB! We can't legally sell alcohol in the space, but if you forget your B and you're really nice to me I might share. ;]
Please help us have a successful event: Tell your friends, pass the flyer around, tweet, facebook, get the word out!
We'll see you there- I'll be wearing a red bandanna and cupcake frosting on the front of my dress.

Get excited! Biking in a Box is HERE!
WTF is Biking in a Box? Well, WTFs, let me tell you...
Where are we?
On our way to Edina.
To WHERE? Why the fuck we goin out there?
It’s Father’s Day. It’s where my Father lives.
Geez. This is ridiculous.
Where are all the bikes?
What do you mean? There were bikes.
Yeah, but they were all going in the OPPOSITE direction.
Seriously, I haven’t seen a bike since we got off the Greenway.
That’s because people are afraid to bike on the streets here.
Shhh…. Not so loud. The suburbs will hear you.
What’s that over there?
What’s what, ADD Sally?
That box thing.
The strip mall?
Don’t make this a longer ride than it already is. Just have fun. Enjoy the scenery.
What scenery? The vast expanses of concrete that lay before me? How lovely!
It’s only for the day. We’ll be home tonight.
One day… yeah, right. Feels like foreeeeevvvvveeeeerrrrr.
Stop griping. We’re almost there.
Next time let’s go to the bakery.

In March, I posted about an exciting online survey, open to women only, put out by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) for a project they are calling "Writing Women Back Into Bicycling: Changing Transportation Culture to Encourage More Women to Cycle More Places More Often."
There were over 13,000 respondents! I don't know the data break-down yet, but they did release some preliminary results in a press release that I would like to share with you.
