j_ryde Wait, your rickshaw DOESNT have two shoe displays that house electrolyte drink and a spot for a keg? I feel sorry for you son... 1d

j_ryde My favorite before and after. I converted a 16" Specialized Hemi kid's bike into a Retrofiet Cargobike. Perfect for kids and kids-at-heart alike! Bikes don't have to be serious business, get out and play a little! 2d

j_ryde Excited to be designing a new custom glass bed for a friend of mine. I love making these, and besides, my glass kiln has been far too neglected this summer. 3d

j_ryde Another before and after of one of my affordable Retrofiet builds. I converted an Austro Daimler road bike into a high speed cargobike commuter! This way I can pedal my puppy into work! No car needed! 4d
  •   skrotcykel Fast? 4d
  •   j_ryde @skrotcykel fast for a cargobike! a surprising number of people suck my wheel on the way home. It's always funny when they realize they're drafting off me AND a 70 lb dog. Haha 4d
  •   skrotcykel Hehe! Your bikes are so cool :-) 4d
  •   j_ryde @skrotcykel thanks homie! 4d
  •   heatherbeth_pdx Juniper has one of the best rides in town (Abby may have a different opinion!) 3d
  •   j_ryde Abby *might* have a valid opinion @heatherbeth_pdx but I say we set the two of them up for a puppy play date and let them hash it out. :) 3d
  •   heatherbeth_pdx @j_ryde let's do it! Abby vs Juniper in the cutest canine commuter show down 3d
  •   j_ryde @heatherbeth_pdx I sent you a message. Let's make it happen! 3d

j_ryde More travel inspiration: Glacier National Park. Nearly all the glaciers will be gone in our lifetime if not sooner. Get there as soon as you can. The epic landscape is worth the trip. And the road on a motorcycle is phenomenal. 4d

j_ryde Happy Friday y'all! People are celebrating today with my custom handmade bikes all up and down the West Coast! 5d

j_ryde Before and after. No sense in getting rid of your old steel bike when I can convert it into an affordable custom cargobike for you! 6d

j_ryde Midnight travel inspiration: La Push, WA. It's no wonder Nada Surf wrote a song about this fishing village, and why it's included in those tacky vampire books. There's something alluring about it. I rode my moto there a couple years back and camped right on the beach. Do it, you won't regret it. 7d

j_ryde Today's design inspiration. 1w
  •   heatherbeth_pdx What is it?! 1w
  •   j_ryde @heatherbeth_pdx care to guess? I was holding it and still never would've guessed what it is. 1w
  •   heatherbeth_pdx My first guess was portable speaker... But why is there a light source. I'm befuddled 1w
  •   j_ryde @heatherbeth_pdx what if I said that's ambient light from the room rather than a direct light source. Does that make the guessing better or worse? ;) 1w
  •   heatherbeth_pdx Worse! It's so small. Is it a material sample? If you put 5 of them together you could have a very design-y cooling rack for a pie. 1w
  •   heatherbeth_pdx Ok, after a google search I'm no closer to the answer. What is it? :) 1w
  •   j_ryde Haha I did definitely want to do a structure test on it for strength. Since it's kind of a weird carbon nanotube composite construction I imagine it'd hold quite the epic pie. That said it's apparently an air freshener. Sort of a reverse osmosis particulate absorption if I understand it right... Regardless you can see all the way through it which reflects light in a really neat way. All that to make a litter box less stinky (and the owner isn't sure it works all that well @heatherbeth_pdx ) 1w
  •   heatherbeth_pdx An air freshener... I would never have guessed that. Ever. Your litter box is on the cutting edge of technology :) also, did we just figure that the world needs a nanotube composite pie cooling rack? The answer is yes! 1w

j_ryde 200 miles and less than 24 hours later 1/2 of #teamsnackattack rocked Ragnar. Such an awesome event with an amazing team. I need new legs, mine are now broken. #asscramps 2w

j_ryde A lot happened in the summer of 2005. Like that one photo of me wearing way too little that somehow made it's way into the pages of The Stranger in Seattle. Oh #tbt, how cutting your stare can be. 2w

j_ryde #tbt to the very first time I ever rode a tallbike. Not my tallbike, for the record.
Circa 2005, downtown Seattle.

j_ryde Today is my Papa's 60th birthday. I've learned a lot from him over the years (not the least of which would be my taste in motorcycles). I'm also very fortunate to have lived the childhood I did thanks in large part to his perpetual sense of youth and pragmatic approach to life.
_____
Later this year I turn 33. It's the first age I can remember my papa being (things are a bit fuzzy before that), and from what I can tell I have a long ways to go before I'm half the man he is.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

j_ryde This photo of my sister, @kelliryder, and me (taken by her fiancé @timmylamb) sums us up pretty darn well. We've both got an eye for color, love doing our own thing, and while I'm a bit bigger and older I am by no means any more mature. Hopefully we'll all live in the same city some day so more afternoon bike rides can happen. 3w
