Rock The Bike

SomaFM.com helping me get through the night

Yo what’s up bike people, people of the bike!?

I just wanted to say that SomaFMis helping me get through the night. I highly suggest you check it out. They’ve got 12 different flavors of electronic music, all available in 128bit Mp3 streams. So if you’re stuck in front of a computer tonight, put that on and you’ll be happy.

I’ve been working all day on the new Rock The Bike web site. I’m so psyched. Drupal has come a long way in the last year since I’ve been learning it. Or maybe it’s that my knowledge and comfort level have improved also. But everything is clicking tonight, my bike brothers and sistas.

Rock the bike is going to feature a network of cool cruisers in dozens, no hundreds of towns and cities across the country and stretching out to Holland and Japan too. You can see a bit of that future in the current site. Check out the upcoming Southbay Cruisers community ride, for example. It’s been led by my man John Silva of Redondo Beach. Right in the heart of car culture USA, John is going to lead a cruiser ride with his new Soul Cycle. He says the reaction locally has been great so far and he’s got the support of a few different bike shops.

Well some new improvements we’re uploading soon, the whole process of organizing cruiser rides will be a lot easy and fun. You’ll be able to put together an email list using the ‘organic groups’ section of our site. And you feel like putting a ride together, just click a button and your people will get the message. The BAM 12 people show up at the cafe ready to cruise. How cool is that? It’s all about the impromptu. How can you really plan a cruiser ride if you don’t know you’ll have cruising weather? I’ve struggled with that a lot at the San Francisco Cruiser Ride.

Peace,
