A Truly Awesome Journey

A few days ago, we had the distinct pleasure of riding with the team from Our Ability, accompanying Messrs John Robinson and Doug Hamlin as they powered their bikes along the route of the Erie Canal — more than 350 miles from near Buffalo to Albany. What makes this so special (and hugely inspiring) is that John has no lower arms or legs, and Doug has lost the use of his legs. What an amazing tribute to the power of the bicycle and the human spirit.

Photos were prepared in cooperation with the New York Bicycling Coalition.

The New Web Site

We’re diving into the worlds of WordPress, Flickr, and cloud computing to rebuild the world of alpenGRAPHIK. All its constituent elements actually fit together quite well in practice, but things got awfully jumbled in the area of management and presentation of content. The beauty of the Web and the core concepts of hyperlinked data is that they mimic the ecosystem of data and information in the “real” world, but, happily, can also serve as tools to grab back control of everything when shortages of time and resources work their mischief on daily operations.

Last weekend’s challenge of three major photo shoots (National Championship Race Walk 5k, Freihofer’s Run for Women, and Saratoga Springs Tour de Cure bike extravaganza) and the resulting task of dealing with thousands of images provided a needed requirement to act …. and this new home for the alpenGRAPHIK “family” is hopefully the needed response.

Here we go.
