Today Norah Jane Struthers and the Party Line are putting the spokes in Spokes & Petals in Bike Ride, as featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Love this song and love this band…especially that dashing banjo player, my old friend Joe.

Grease related links and subscriptions

Quick note to say that I’ve added two helpful bike links under the new blogroll category “Spokes.” (The blogroll is just the list of links on the right side of the homepage.) Sheldon Brown’s site is an especially wonderful, classic reference. For people who cycle often – especially we commuters who clock many miles a day – I strongly recommend Yogamazing’s “Yoga for Cyclists.” I did the whole routine this morning and feel like a million karmic bucks. If you have any other cycling references or sites to recommend for the blogroll please let me know.

I have also added a subscription button. If you would like to be notified by email when a new post is published, simply go to the homepage and click “Subscribe!” Of course, if you are a WordPress member any blogs that you follow will just show up on your homepage under the “Following” tab.
