From the Downtown Express.... Mossey capitalized on a seven-month unemployment stretch to create a blog that last summer catapulted into a successful one-man business. The messenger, born and raised on the Lower East Side and in the delivery business for 25 years, transports groceries and home improvement goods to residents’ doors via cargo bike a converted pedicab that can haul two to three hundred pounds at a time.
Who hasn’t fantasized about being able to fly above the clouds? While human beings have come up with ways to mimic the feeling, here’s an option for those of us who are, frankly, a little too wussy to try out base jumping or hang-gliding right off the bat. Created by Dr. Carsten Mehring, theStreetflyeris ahuman-powered, light-weight carbon-fiber vehicle that allows you to get a running start and then simply put your legs up to get you into a horizontal hang-gliding position using a body-harness. You won’t be more than 3 feet above the ground, but you can imagine how freeing it will feel to “soar” through the streets in the Superman position (though you may not look as cool as you feel). The concept vehicle could also be used for rehabilitation purposes since it allows the user to be in a suspended vertical position while propelling themselves forward with no impact to their limbs.
I was talking to Yvette of Joulebody http://thekickstartdiet.com/ about her logo and the concept of words alone creating images,so I looked up Making Things Go ...Because of the wall of words created by John Tetz.
I Had no Idea there was a video........

How often is it that you see a cyclist riding under water? Yasser is an Egyptian blogger, and member of the The Cairo Cyclists Club, who took a dive last year in order to make a humorous statement with a serious environmental message behind it.
While Egyptians have always been opinionated and outspoken, the January 25th revolution has amplified numerous issues, including the need to become a more sustainable society.
Cycling since the age of six. Never got off my bike,.I became a bicycle messenger in the 80's for Can Carriers, Started Born to Run Bicycle Messengers a few years after. I guess I made an unconscious decision to use my car as little as possible in NYC until I just eventually got rid of it.
I've bicycle toured all over the States including Alaska,and Hawaii!I also made it to the jungles of Mexico. As far as Europe I've only made it to France.I've always been a Cycling Commuter in NYC from Manhattan,Queens and Ft Lee ,NJ.
