Cider Festival in September: logo contest, vendors wanted

It’s time for the event to have its own logo! We’re gathering a prize package and calling for entries. It’s open to everyone—graphic designers, students, artists—and you may enter multiple designs. One way we would like to use it is for reusable cider cups that we’ll sell in advance, so we’re on a short deadline.

Pedaling My Way Through Bethany

utility bike

Most days I get on my electric cargo bike, often with my two kids in the back, and set off on various routine expeditions around Bethany—preschool, grocery stores, libraries, cafes, doctor visits, you name it. And potentially to help others, I have been recording my journeys and making the videos available on YouTube, with overlaid GPS map and elevation information. My goal is to augment trail/road maps with a first-person perspective of how I use a mix of different infrastructures to run my daily errands.
