Hello August! A recap of bikeMAMAdelphia Adventures in July

I stretched and took a long break from blogging this past month. Mostly because my kids spilled water on my computer and partially because why not take a summer break. We didn't take a break from riding however and a quick photo recap of some special July rides shall now commence.

Late last month the motor of the Urban Arrow was replaced, I am going to post about that later this week but the start of this month began with a much more powerful bike! I had no clue.

We did our annual 4th of July ride down the shut down Kelly Drive onto the Parkway for the fireworks. Our usual spot is now the drop zone for the fireworks which was kind of a pain. 2 hours before the fireworks even went off the closed down the area making it impossible for those on bikes to get back Kelly Drive easily (there was a stairs and footpath for peds). We had a great time biking down though and home in the dark which isn't the usual for this family in the summer time.  The weather by the way was amazing, usually we are pouring sweat on the 4th, this year I wore a wool sweater home!

Kidical Mass rode this month as well. We rode from Fitler Square to Seger Rec. it was smaller then the June ride but a nice day and time. The ride was an uneventful loop the video of the ride is up on

I rode the kids down to South Philly to get M a haircut. He was into the bike ride but was adamantly against the haircut. However after he got in the chair he did so well and as a nice summery haircut!

Finally it was my 30th birthday this month on the 30th. We celebrated my birthday by biking down to the Barnes Museum, it was a great ride with the kids (on the way home though my battery died uphill OMG hate when that happens). The next day I opened my 30th with a new tattoo that is biking and my kid related.

Overall fantastic month! Coming up is an August Kidical Mass ride

  5. Animation studios for TV networks were given very small budgets. In the early 1950's studios were given approximately $2,500-$3,000 to produce a 20 minute cartoon. Does it sound like a lot? Well it does until you compare the cost it took to produced the worlds first Technicolor cartoon short Flowers and Trees (1932), which turns out to be a whooping $27,500 with a runtime of 8 minutes.
