Hey friends, I finished recapping all the St. Paul City Council races, here's a page you can share with all your St. Paul Pals with all of my recommendations plus links to more useful resources: https://firewally.net/post/st-paul-election-guide-2019/
Cyclist Death, Call to action
Human-Protected bike lane tomorrow at 4:30PM at 12th St and Linden in Minneapolis, where a cyclist was killed by a truck driver yesterday.
NOTE: the city is looking for feedback between now and December 21. If you want to see a more inclusive array of features in Highland Park (instead of 9 holes of golf), now is a great time to let the city know
This is a concept drawing from the "Visioning" process for the Highland Park 9 hole course in St. Paul https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/parks-recreation/design-construction/current-projects/highland-9-visioning
But like, think of all the cool shit we could get by bulldozing *an entire* golf course. Or, stay with me, *all* the urban golf courses
Last boost: Hi that's my mayor and he's fucking great.
(context: St. Paul declined to purchase "shot spotter" surveillance tech and there has been some controversy)
I think this is an interesting experiment, but personally I don't see the point in a new alt-social network that
🙅 Isn't open source
🙅 Doesn't support ActivityPub
🙅 Is controlled by a for-profit company (no matter how well-intentioned its founders are)
@lawremipsum @kyleislikekyle @Jennybellium Got some video of the Grand Ave bike lanes today. I used a handlebar mount but the video is a shakier than I'd prefer. iMovie totally choked on it but you might be able to stabilize it with the right tools.
Eastbound, includes me yelling at a car: https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0At1Sw2k70p6RU_kLaE7hEJsw#MAH00219
food, recipe suggestion
I made some pickled cabbage to try to imitate Naf Naf grill and damn, this shit is good on everything (tacos, stir-fry, rice bowls, etc)
Method: Boil some red wine vinegar, dissolve in some sugar and salt. Turn off the heat and toss in some finely sliced cabbage (optional: add diced onion, carrots, other pickley things). Let it sit for a while, stir occasionally, eat on things
Alright. Studded tires installed, new chain in place, rear rack secured, fenders are holding themselves on somehow. Winter snuck up on me for the first round, but damned if I’m gonna let that fucker get another one over on me #bikes
I like riding bikes and writing code and playing roller derby and doing nice things for people. He/Him.
