If you don’t get the Bob Seger reference it’s okay. If you don’t know who Bob Seger is please educate yourself – http://youtube.com/watch?v=_mRFWQoXq4c

Taking photos at night is a blast! There are so many opportunities to create neat effects with lighting and lack-there-of. All of these are from the Omotesandō area. If you can’t tell, I love bikes. Tokyo has THE COOLEST bikes ever. There’s not too many descriptions to go along with these, just pure enjoyment. The pictures are easily most of my new favorites.

US Anti-Doping Agency Charges Armstrong

wow really? after all the test, all the publicity, and everything else that has happened are they seriously still gonna try to bring him down? bullshit….

CBS Philly

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lance Armstrong is facing more doping allegations just a few months after he thought he had finally put them to rest.

Although federal investigators in February closed a two-year investigation without bringing criminal charges, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has filed new doping charges that could strip the seven-time Tour de France winner of his victories in cycling’s premier race.

Armstrong insists he is innocent.

“I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one,” Armstrong said in a statement. “Any fair consideration of these allegations has and will continue to vindicate me.”

The move by USADA immediately bans him from competing in triathlons, which he turned to after he retired from cycling last year.

For A Minute There, We Lost Ourselves: Bonnaroo 2012 Recap

Frontier Psychiatrist

Bonnaroo 2012

Bonnaroo may not be real life, but that doesn’t make it any less stressful. Every year, 80,000 (approx.) crazies rage or mosey their way down to the farm in Manchester, Tennessee for an assumed relaxing period of both chill and weird. While it is a welcome vacation from commuter trains, twitter (sorry, boss), landlords and sitcom reruns, Bonnaroo is far from a beach getaway or a recharging weekend in the woods. Fortunately, the amazing performances and overall great vibes always win out in the end, and this year’s unbeatable lineup did not disappoint in the least.

The stress of Bonnaroo set in early in the week, as it mixed with the excitement and anticipation. After jamming a full week of preparation, work and writing into three days, I was already spread thin as we packed the car Wednesday evening. Our unruly 14-strong Bonna-crew (oof) was traveling from several metropolises across…

Eyecatchers: The Many Flavors Of Bicycle

so many bike, so little time…

Fish & Bicycles

Well, I guess it’s just a bicycle kind of week, here at Fish & Bicycles.

After Monday’s post about a women’s cycling group in Seattle, this morning I came across a wonderful photo essay at the Boston Globe, an homage to my favorite human-powered form of transportation.

This really is an amazing collection of images, 49 of them, in fact, from all over the world, representing the bicycle in all of its many flavors, some immediately familiar, and some I’d never even dreamed of. That these are beautifully shot, high-quality photos makes them all the more enjoyable.

Here are some of my favorites, but be sure to check out the whole gallery, where you can read captions describing the subjects. (Also, you can click on all of the photos below and see them in a larger format.)
