Thanks to friends for coming out for the preview of my Presidio Bike Tour last Sunday. I hope we get half as much sun for next month's tour! I'm cutting back the tour a bit - 10 miles and 11 stops was just a bit too much.

I'm looking forward to guiding friends in the Presidio on Sunday for a tour by bike. We'll be checking out a bunch of the changes happening in the Presidio. This tour will give me practice for a bike tour next month that's open to the public. I've got 11 stops planned, to take a look at the changes happening. Here are three of the topics that have caught my attention (the photos are from various sites - not the places the tour is stopping):

An outline of a health reform proposal (click for pdf) is available from the Ways and Means Committee. It would expand community health centers and boost the pathways that lead to careers in primary care, among other good stuff.

The United States needs comprehensive health reform, and we may finally make it happen:
- President Obama has built an impressive team and they're pursuing a deliberate political strategy.
- New leaders on the Hill are prepared for the fight.
- Health system leaders have formed new alliances.
- Grassroots leaders at the neighborhood, local, state, and national levels have done their homework.
Here's my prescription for you: watch for news about our upcoming events, and stay informed about health reform by reading stories such as Matt Bai's article in the New York Times Magazine yesterday.

A great yogi, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, passed away last month at age 93. From his home city of Mysore, India, he nurtured the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, which is the kind of yoga that has been best for helping me toward a strong practice. How sad that just as I began trying to re-build my practice, its founder passes away.

Pedaling Revolution, by Oregon journalist Jeff Mapes, got a strong review by David Byrne in Sunday's New York Times book review. That's great exposure for a book published by the Oregon State University Press. Michael has already read the book and he is more fired up than ever. I guess I'll check it out next!
