    Over the Top Radio with Jeff Cleary of Cleary Bicycles

    in Fitness

    Jeff Cleary - creator of Cleary Bikes - joins us this afternoon to discuss the company's wonderful kids bikes.  Far and away one of our favorite products at Interbike this year. A description of what Cleary Bikes is all about:

    Cleary Bikes empower kids. A bike launches a little boy or girl into the world. He does not have to be a daredevil.  When a kid pushes off on his or her bike, rides to the mailbox, the store, the park or to school, he becomes actively engaged.  Not being led by the hand and blazing his own path, is independence!

    Riding a bike should be fun.  It certainly shouldn’t be stressful or scary.  When we created Cleary Bikes we wanted to thrill kids.  Riding a Cleary Bike is truly a joyful experience.  They roll smoothly, they’re quiet, and they look sleek.  We see our bikes as fun tools, not toys.  Kids know the difference because the quality that distinguishes our bikes is evident in every facet of their construction.  It can be felt in every pedal stroke.  

    We know these things because we have been riding bikes since we first threw a leg over the banana seat on a second-hand Huffy Dragster.  We pedaled on through mountain bikes, road bikes, cross bikes, time trial bikes - and then bikes for our kids.  And that's when it became clear the kids needed something better.

    Free Mass Transit

    in Politics Progressive

    The Duke, a.k.a. Michael Dukakis, and I have kicked around transit fares at public hearings, the Rail-volution conference and here on Left Ahead. I say subways, trolleys, buses and commuter rail should be free. The employees should attend to safety and cleanliness, not toll collection.

    The backstory is that charging high fees for fares, while spending hundreds of billions on yet more roads for polluting, cangerous, congesting, din-producing motor vehicles is asinine. Dukakis agrees in principle but thinks passengers ought to pay a nominal fee, like $1 per trip.

    I contend the concept is that mass transit should be so cheap and clean and safe and efficient and reliable that only the most egocentric will drive and inconvenience the rest of us. That would leave the streets and roads to delivery trucks, buses, and bicycles. (cheer here)

    This came to mind once again after this cursed winter. The Boston-area transit failed in every conceivable way. The new Gov. Charles D. Baker produced a puppet task force that started with a major fail. It never asked or responded what we expected from mass transit. Instead, Baker fell back into the same manure pile of doing the same old things, just cheaper.

    No. No. No.

    Let's ask the question of what we do and what we should and what we must expect from our mass transit. Have not fear or doubt. I have answers.

    Let's Coach! with Mark & Carolyn - LHK

    in Motivation

    Let’s Coach with Mark and Carolyn, Wednesday, August 19, 2015, Noon EST

    Paying It Forward

    It’s better to give than to receive.  That’s how Rachel Madison Harris lives.  She founded Let’s Help Kids in 2010 as a way to help kids whose families are having money problems.  LHK helps kids from kindergarten to sixth grade in Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC by meeting non-basic needs for children - providing them with special items or experiences that they may not otherwise receive.  While many worthwhile organizations exist to provide food, shelter and financial assistance to families who are struggling to make ends meet, LHK provides “the extras.”  In Rachel’s own words:

    I started Let's Help Kids so that I could help other kids to be happy. If I "fill their buckets" then they will, in turn, fill other people's buckets. Pay it forward!

    Rachel Harris

    Rachel is 11 years old.  Assisted by her board, including Mom and Executive Director Jen Sterling, LHK has provided hundreds of area kids with happiness by granting wishes from birthday presents, bicycles, to Halloween costumes. To learn more about Let’s Help Kids and how you can help make the life of needy child a little bit happier visit them online at www.letshelpkids.org

    Join Mark and Carolyn, Jen Sterling and LHK Founder and boss lady, Rachel Harris, as we talk about how to fill people’s buckets.

    Conservative Refuge Radio: 8/17/2015

    in Politics Conservative

    On this installment:

    Governor Hogan announces a new policy that removes Maryland from being a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.  We'll discuss.
    A recent article stated that almost 30% of self-styled "conservatives" could not define what that term actually means.  We'll convene class to discuss just what an American conservative really is.
    The Anne Arundel County executive, "himself a recreational cyclist", has named a commission to discuss ways the county can expand both recreational and commuting cycling.  Are bicycles a good answer to the county's transportation problems.  I will have some views not likely to be heard on the executive's new commission.
    We open the "Fat Files" to discuss a recent Reason article chronicling how the Federal Government's dietary advice has often been wrong and yet these same bureaucrats want more and more control over what you eat.
