Biking Past Anne Frank

By spokesman | March 9, 2012

There was an obituary in the Washington Post this past week for Tina Strobos, a Dutch woman who had rescued Jews during World War II.  At the outset of the war, she joined the underground resistance movement.   As stated in the Post article - “In the beginning, she worked primarily on arming and equipping the resistance fighters. She ran guns, explosives and radios, sometimes hiding them in her bicycle basket during journeys of 50 miles.”  As it became more dangerous, she switched her efforts to saving Jewish friends and others by helping them to get out of the country.  She built a secret hide-out in her home that served as tempory hiding place for Jews on their way out of the county.  It is ironic that her home was only a few blocks from where Anne Frank and her family were hiding.  As reported in the article, that fact became a lifelong regret for Tina Strobos.   “If I knew they were there,” she told her son, “I would have gotten them out of the country.”

Follow Ups To Previous Posts (by the numbers)

By spokesman | December 2, 2011

6 Years Late - It was announced this week that one of two current appeals related to Jan Ullrich’s  involvement in the Operation Puerto investigation will be ruled on in six weeks.  I hope the pending case on Contador is resolved more quickly.  The outcome of the Ullrich case could result in a life time ban for him - which would be meaningless since he has been retired for 6 years.  Here is a link to a previous post entitled “Et Tu Ullrich“ with a great Adidas ad featuring Ullrich in his prime.

18 Miles of Highway and 10 Miles of Bike Path - The Intercounty Connector (ICC) highway in Maryland opened officially this past month.  It will be free until Dec 4, and then it will become one of the most expensive toll roads in the nation.  Even with the high toll and the $2.5 billion construction cost, they still could not complete a bike path for the entire length of the road as explained in a previous post - An Absurd Ending To The ICC Bike Path.

2nd Attempt -  When the Velovoom Spinning Studio opened in January 2011 in Bethesda, I posted that it would go bankrupt.  While I don’t like to see a small business go under, I was right. Only 2 months after the grand opening, they closed. Now, they are trying again.  It re-opened in October at the same location with a different name - ZenGo.  With the same pricing and the same business model, isn’t the same outcome inevitable?

The Supercommittee Bike Ride

By spokesman | November 15, 2011

The Congressional Supercommittee is working on a budget deal as their deadline is approaching.  The website Politico reported that several of the committee members have been biking together.


“SUPERCOMMITTEE BACKCHANNNEL: SPOTTED, on an hours-long bike ride along the Potomac on Saturday: Supercommittee members Sens. Rob Portman (R) and John Kerry (D), accompanied by … wait for it … Sen. Mark Warner (D), ringleader of the “Gang of Six.” All three are supercompetitive bikers, and gave no grace to each other during the ride.IF THE SUPERCOMMITTEE GETS A DEAL, this off-campus, cross-party dynamic will be part of the reason. And Mark Warner will get a hat tip. 

Usually golf is the sport of choice for negotiating deals.  It is nice to see biking instead of golf.  I don’t have any information on the bikes, but Kerry has been seen on one of his custom-made Serotta bikes.  (See google image search for “John Kerry Serotta”).  If the supercommittee produces a good deal with help from Senator Warner, I may be willing to forgive Mark Warner for the dead fish handshake he gave me when we met in 2008.

Steve Jobs’ Bicycle

By spokesman | October 30, 2011

Mona Simpson, a novelist and professor of English at the University of California Los Angeles, was Steve Jobs’ sister.  She delivered this eulogy for her brother on October 16.   It was a beautiful and moving eulogy.  There is one quote of interest to cyclists.  Steve Jobs live well below his means.  He was an extremely wealthy man but didn’t live excessively.  It was important to him that his children were well grounded and not spoiled by the wealth.  However it seems that there was one area where he did splurge - on his bicycle.  In the eulogy, his sister said

“This is not to say that he didn’t enjoy his success: he enjoyed his success a lot, just minus a few zeros. He told me how much he loved going to the Palo Alto bike store and gleefully realizing he could afford to buy the best bike there.

And he did.”

I don’t know what bike he bought, but I like that this was the area where he decided to splurge.  I only wish he had chosen to design a bike rather than buying one.  The results might have been very interesting.
