So hey, November 2nd was the blog’s three-year anniversary. And I forgot it. Then the next week, I forgot that we were hosting our son’s birthday party. What can I say? I’m teaching a new class this term and apparently there no room for anything else in my brain.
There was a time when I wondered if I’d run out of material or bikes to review, but that seems unlikely to happen anytime soon. Recently we’ve ridden a Bike Friday Haul-a-Day and a Kidztandem, and later this month I will be trying out a loaner Faraday Porteur (because one of these days I’ll be riding solo all the time). And I definitely have ambitions to try the Butchers & Bicycles MK1 tricycle, the first that has ever looked even vaguely appealing to me, the next time I’m in Portland, which for the record, will be in April 2015. San Francisco keeps building up bike lanes, my husband continues to wander around the world checking out bicycle culture on other continents, and we see more families join us on the road every month. So there’s still so much to say.
Over the years this site has evolved a lot. I’m certain that the only people who read at first were family members. Now I get interesting and useful comments on most posts, and hear from old friends near and far that they’re following along. Thanks everybody, for hanging in. I appreciate it.

Thank YOU for continuing to write! I love to read about your experiences and value your opinions. I hope your kid’s party was a blast, if only for him!
Your thorough reviews are very helpful to me since I want to get a cargo bike but live in a place where test riding is not possible for most of them. Thank you for writing.
So pleased to hear that you plan to continue your blog!. I follow your adventures from western New York State, right on the Canadian border. Really value the in depth and thoughtful bike reviews. Best to you and your family. Keep those posts coming…
Can’t wait to read your thoughts on the Haul-a-Day!
It’s a great blog! I think you do a really good (inspiring, informative, insightful) job of blending the personal and the political.
I’m interested in the Haul-a-Day; did you happen to do a write-up of it? Im very curious!
I have ridden it and have a review coming, just haven’t gotten to it yet–sorry!
