Rides in motor vehicles since June 2018

  • 2018 - Ferry, to get across the SF Bay
  • 2018 - Aerial tram, to get to work once or twice
  • 2019 - Elevator when being escorted to a study (got paid $40 to learn I have a high pain tolerance)
  • 2020 - Used the elevator daily to move a cart at work for about a month
  • 2020 - Elevator in a skyscraper that didn't seem to have stairs
  • 2020 - Bike move got cut off in all directions (except back the way we came) by California's annual apocalypse. Darin's father picked us up with his pickup truck.
  • 2021 - Darin got an e-assist for the tandem. So any time I'm on the tandem, there's a chance I'm riding a motor vehicle. Great on the knees, rough on my morals, whines like an induction stovetop burner, amazing for intersections.

Bikes etc.

Hey look, a job board! "The RAR Jobs Board is a job listing to increase hiring for BIPOC and FTWN-B folks in the cycling and outdoors industries." [note: the FTWN-B means femme, transgender, women and non-binary.] Angel York (talk) 10:36, 30 June 2021 (PDT)
