Ride my bike to work – sure, why not

For those of you who don’t know, Justin rides his bike to work every morning.  Naturally, trying to mimic the iconic “green” purveyor that is the Free Riding Justin, I decided it would be a good idea to ride my bike into work instead of drive the 30 miles to the PT homeland.  As 5 [...]

Swerve On Bicycling.com

The new Swerve tail light is super bright. We all know this and so does Bicycling.com. Bicycling’s gear guru Ron Koch recently put one on his bike, crusied around the California streets at night and wrote a great, honest review.

Justin Lichter – somewhere, doing something cool, with a headlamp

Nice Trauma

LEDs, Heatsinks, Headlamps, lightbulbs? – we have been here for years.

The NYTimes blogged about light bulbs with heatsinks. The writer says that they look weird. I dunna know, they look pretty cool to me.

Hitting the road. That’s what this is all about.


Life at PT sure is interesting, but it’s what happens when we saddle up and head out of Bordentown that fuels our passion and provides inspiration. Our travels present the opportunity to explore new places, see old friends, meet strangers that grow into old friends, and share our enthusiasm for the outdoors. www.livingonthedash.com is our outlet to share these experiences.


Sit back, enjoy and spread the love.
