Okay, I am having a heck of a time, Brownie, setting up all this Twitter crap. But I think I’ve succeeded. So. Trisha and I will be tweeting our way across London and St. Petersburg, Russia. Follow us because that’s where all the cool kids will be. We promise many fascinating updates, such as “GOD SAVE THE QUEEN” and “VODKA!”
The name is: Trisha Dottie, @letsgorideabike. You may also want to follow editrish in case my set-up fails miserably.
Perhaps you are wondering why we are going to St. Petersburg. Part of the reason is that my bachelor’s degree is in Russian language and literature (very practical, I use Dostoevsky in my daily life) and I lived in Pete for a semester way back in 2001. Part of the reason is that St. Petersburg is gorgeous and bad ass. We will keep an eye out for “St. Petersburg Cycle Chic” but my clearest memory from the city is of a car careening onto the sidewalk purposely and then honking at me for being in its way, so I’m not sure how much of a thriving bike culture manages to exist.
We will be back on the 28th. We’ll be updating as much as we can along the way and we’ve also scheduled a few posts to publish here and there.
Tweet, I’m out.
