Hand pumped espresso machine, or perhaps an elaborate bong. You be the judge.
But good things have come of my busyness. Last week the City of Philadelphia hosted a Cities for Cycling event: experts from San Francisco, Portland, NYC and DC all came to share their experiences on building bicycle friendly cities and I was essentially the point guy for the project. I have not been that busy since graduate school. I spent gargantuan amounts of time coordinating people's schedules, making sure that we had a working powerpoint, getting lunches lined up and plotting the route for our tour of Philly's bike infrastructure. By the end of their two day stay, I was pretty exhausted, but totally stoked about our next steps as a bike friendly city. Check out the presentations here:
