Here is a video from one of the fellow Less Car More Go documentary co-producers. He is an artist with an extra cycle and this is his video about Art in Transit. I hope you enjoy seeing that he does with this xtra-cycle. His latter transport was quite eye opening.View full post
On June 25, 2015, I decided to ride solo around downtown San Antonio, TX at night to take in the Cycle-in-Cinema and do a little photography. After posting an image to my facebook wall, Yuba Bicycles shared the image on their Facebook page. I’m glad they liked it over there at Yuba Bicycles. …View full post
Health issues postponed the next cycling adventure after PJ’s first ride: Shortly after PJ’s first ride on the bicycle, he started having an ear infection. Here in Texas, this spring has had its record breaking moments. I’m sure you heard about our floods in the news. The seasonal allergies are also at a 20 year …View full post
Short update, on my Flickr account I was notified that one of my photos of a haul from HEB (Grocery Store) was selected as the cover for “Extreme is the New Normal!” Flickr group, which is a group for cargo cyclists to post photos of their cargo bicycle hauls and other cargo related adventures.View full post
Yesterday, I blogged about the Vision Zero movement in San Antonio, Texas. Today, in my cycling blog sphere I learned about a same titled “Vision Zero” plan for Seattle. I liked the catch phrase of “We should not accept death as a byproduct of commuting.” This Vision Zero seems to be a movement, learn more about …View full post
I’ve been a fan of the Rivard Report for sometime and hope to contribute to them someday. I’ve been asked before since starting the blog. This year, we had a run-off election here in San Antonio. We had a interim mayor, Ivy Taylor, ever since Julian Castro moved up to Washington DC. (Julian Castro was …View full post
Finding time to write Well, today (June 10, 2015) I finished up my last continuing education class for my teacher certificate, so now I’ve got some time to devote to Bike4heck.com Let’s start by backing up a little bit and see what changes have taken place in the past 6 months to a year. Well, …View full post
Here is a video I saw on Youtube that shows Bike4Heck’s friend Steve Bode who is the director of outreach of Yuba Bicycles. (Just so we are clear I don’t get paid by Yuba to blog about my Mundo or post this video.) I’m just a fan of the line up at Yuba. I thought …View full post
This is a longer video than I usually post but it’s totally worth a 20 minute watch. Liz Canning, a friend of Bike4Heck did a great job on this video segment. I was not a co-producer in this project but I’m apart of the larger project she is doing that this was an excerpt from, that project …View full post

I just want to get an update out there today on the site so my regulars know what has been going on here in San Antonio, Texas. Live have been happening, PJ had his first birthday party, my wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, started planning for a Kidical Massive in San Antonio and we took a family vacation to the beach. All these things are wonderful and exciting however since this is bicycling blog it’s important to state that I’ve been doing more riding of by bicycles than ever since starting the blog. I’ve been taking PJ on rides daily averaging about 3 miles per day. Some evenings once PJ is asleep I’ve been able to get a kitchen pass and do some joy riding around on the Yuba Mundo V4.3 (they just announced a version 5 that will be coming out soon.)
I’m sure that this post will have typos and errors. I’m sure because my wife Tina is the one with the English degree and she is the editor of the site meaning that she proof reads each post. Having a one year old and a new love for cycling makes for a very busy house hold where it’s just getting harder to sit down and write. The school year will be starting in the next few weeks and thus it will get more difficult to devote time to writing blogs and even riding the bicycle. (My wife and I are both teachers).
Between now and the start of the school year (Mid-August) I hope to get some posts scheduled and have them at least posting one per month of my adventures even if they are back dated a bit.
