Mugshot Monday - “Work Less. Play More. Enjoy Life” coffee mug with Birchwood Blend by Peace Coffee
I told my wife I would get this coffee mug as soon as I found a job. Well, she gave it to me yesterday!
Today is my first day at my new job at MSP Communications. And although I don’t plan on working “less,” I will be conscious of how I blend my new work life and my personal life.
"ENJOY LIFE" are the two words I plan to concentrate on. And that will involve doing good work. And most certainly riding a bicycle as often as possible.

Mugshot Monday - “One on One Bicycle Studio” coffee mug with organic French Roast by B&W Java
So One on One is a coffee shop + bicycle shop + art studio. It’s near Ciceron HQ in downtown Minneapolis so I go there for a Dirty Chai or for lunch (they have really good soup and nice strong coffee).
The bike shop is pretty awesome. I’m not a bike nerd (yet), but the bike shop part looks really impressive to me. They have a great mix of new high-end bikes and sweet old bikes they’ve refurbished (like the low-rider bicycle in the photo). The guy in front of me today when I got a coffee was looking to browse their used parts selection.
The art gallery part currently has most if not all of the posters from this year’s Minneapolis Art Crank, which is cool for me because I totally missed that event. Be sure to take a peep at the impressive water bottle collection behind the counter up on the wall. Can you find the 1980s era cell phone water bottle?
You should check out One on One if you haven’t already. Cool spot.

We’ll be showing off this pimp ride, the Civia Halsted, at our booth at the Living Green Expo this weekend! Stop by and check it out.
*Sorry no free beer or cold press coffee samples from the cooler.

Just look at this bike, yo!

Minneapolis residents will be blown away by what they see at around 5:55 into this.

I don’t understand this one bit. Not one bit! But I like it. And yes, 5.55 frame was a hilarious surprise.

Got registered and all set up for the Minneapolis Bike Tour on Sunday. Doing the short route with the family.

We definitely could use a bike-awareness campaign like LA’s, which reminds motorists to give cyclists three feet of clearance, in downtown Minneapolis.


Love this idea. When I was on a bike tour in rural Ireland — where the streets not only have no bike lanes, but don’t really have enough room for two lanes of cars — I noticed that the ONCOMING cars would move over so then the cars PASSING me had room to move over and give me 3 feet when passing. I was impressed (and relieved). They know the drill over there, and obviously they learned it through some kind of marketing or PSA like this.
