This weekend I will be trying not to fall off of other people’s freak bikes in the streets of Nashville. If you see a gaggle of strange ones pedaling the roads, turn not to me for explanation. Just hide your naked upper lip.

I have received a correction!

Tour De Fun is NOT Boro Fondo. They aren’t connected or affiliated with each other.

They are certainly similar in theme and idea, but Boro Fondo is not the newest incarnation or the continuation of Tour De Fun.

Tour De Fun 4 will take place in 2014 in Nashville, and it’s cool that Boro Fondo is filling the hole that the absence of Tour De Fun has left in our spring here in Middle TN. I wish nothing but the best for Boro Fondo next weekend, but it should be made very clear that these two events are not connected.

Tour de Fun is now Boro Fondo is now what we should do next weekend, and how! I’ve never been to one before. Excited for all them musics and biker musks.

Date/Location/Miles Biked/Animals Spotted/People Met/Most important. This ended up being a really great system for documenting the day, but one that I cheated on when I had a beansy stomach and tired legs and a sleep-bound head in our tent at the end of the day.

The idea that you might end up in a job that doesn’t allow you to be who you are, over the course of a lifetime, is still one of the most chilling nightmares to me. It’s a good metaphor for fears I have about losing my soul in some accidental, mundane way. So, to me, these jobs that my characters have are very loaded. They immediately suggest a complex character to me, a woman who is, say, a secretary, but also a vigilante on behalf of her own soul.

the 19-hour bus ride back from Denver gave me a lot of time to think about riding on the sun-faded by-way asphalt of Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. the easiest way to work it gracefully into conversation might be to flaunt evidence on a hat. 

pinned and sewn: a petrified snake to Sophie’s wondrous creation of a noggin cap, and my  newly staple-less arm flesh. these are the decorative pieces that have recently gotten the most attention from people at parties.

a whole lotta tooth floss. i don’t know who deemed denim vests the go-to punkifiers of bike fashion, but i built one, and you can too!

you probably know sexty-nine buttzillion people with denim vests, right? well, just borrow one and trace its pieces on paper to make a template. then cut like-sized pieces out of whatever excess fabrics you own (preferably stiff like this) and embellish it to all hell.

we tried to see as much as we possibly could, but when we passed our 30th Historic Marker on the Natchez Trace—varnished brown wood and yellow sans serif writing per usual—we realized we’d have to be picky. biking makes for a slower landscape, though, which is to be appreciated.
especially when you are slowly passing a bull, who, without breaking eye contact with you, pees forever to impress you.
