The Ride of Silence 09 Minneapolis

On May 20, 2009, 7:00 PM – cyclists worldwide gather in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. Yesterday I rode together in a pack of about 100 bikers along side my brother in law & husband. Sadly biker Dennis Dumm was killed earlier that day on 15th and Park near downtown, which is why I chose to participate in the ride.

The ride stared at 34th & Lyndale and proceeded to the ghostbike location of Jimmy Nisser’s ghostbike, and then on to Dennis’s site where we met his family & friends in tears. This was a very emotional ride for everyone, but powerful. Although those in cars did not understand why a pack of cyclists took the streets, it still made a huge impact, many stopped and watched. The downside is that many spectators thought it was fun to see the group- many of them did not know that this was a tribute to the fallen bikers of the twin cities. Randy, Will, and I rode to Nicholas ‘Nik’ H. Morton’s bike and proceed home. The ride went to St. Paul to visit the last ghostbike of Virginia “Ginny” Heuer.

I often I fear the dreaded phone call, as my husband and many friends commute in rain, heat, and snow via bike to work. Minneapolis has one of the biggest population of bicyclist commuters in the nation and many of the dedicated bikers fight to keep the city streets safe to ride. I have chosen to ride to work in the past and have experienced many asshole drivers who choose to harass bikers on the street, one even who veered close to me intentionally.

I have been putting together new gift set packages for the farmers market. Everything from handmade bath teas, fancy soaps, lip balm, bath melts, Drawer Sachets… and yes I have even designed the lables and packaging myself.

The idea is to offer up a pretty package ready for gift giving. Sets can be mixed and matched and customized for bridal party or special events. It’s too bad I did not have this ready in time for Mothers Day.

If you like what you see below please contact me, everything you see will be for sale. Prices start at $15 dollars on up. You name the price and I can work with you to create multiple gift sets!
