Scuba checks in with “Fall OF not OFF The Bike Palo Alto”

Sandra Wang and Crocket Bodelson, of Santa Fe New Mexico and San Francisco, are offering to let us use this image for what I am calling “Fall OF Not OFF The Bike Palo Alto” meaning let’s all try to use our bikes as much as we can while the weather is nice, and support the Bike PA or whatever its called coming up, Susan Stamsbury supports.

I’ll check back with them about whether we can turn this into t-shirts.

I imagine that someday we can have a concert at The Varsity where people will try to all bike or use Caltrain or both. When Blink 182 played Cubberley in 1998, I gave people 2-for-1 if they came on bike. I called it “Earthday Rock N Bike” — wonder if it’s too late to arrange something like that for their upcoming show at Shoreline.

PROGRAM NOTE: WHILE WE ARE WAITING TO HEAR BACK FROM CROCKETT AND SANDRA SCUBA ABOUT THEIR BICYCLE PAINTING, PLEASE ENJOY THIS VIDEO, I HEARD ABOUT ON DAYTROTTER “CALIFORNIA” BY ERIKA M. ANDERSON OF SOUTH DAKOTA PKA EMA:

THANK YOU.

    It’s funny that 26 million plays has this video when they debuted it here at Cubberley there were about 150 people. I hope they say “Hello Mountain View. We dedicate this next song to the good people of Palo Alto fighting for their right to party at The Varsity Theatre, it’s no small thing, we would have wanted to play there. We still do!”

    I have not been on my bike in a couple days or maybe a week or more now due to the weather and the fact I drive to Foothill for macroeconomics course three days a week; I hope, in terms of “Fall Of Not Off The Bike” initiative to due that two wheeled thing at least ten more times this year. And I mean just commuting. And I work at home. But even so just to roll and balance and be from from the oil war for a few minutes is so liberating. So let’s see if I can take even ten more rides over the next 37 days…(and I also will have a house guest for four or five nights…we can borrow another bike for short local trips, or bike to train to city….)
