For those who follow my Instagram account, you may have seen the progress of my latest craft project.
50 years ago today, July 16th 1969, three earthlings lifted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida to begin their journey to the Moon. 4 days later, Neil Armstrong took the first step onto the lunar surface.
To celebrate and commemorate this event, I’ve spent the month of June and July recreating one of the artifacts from the Lunar landing.
Back in 2015(!) the Smithsonian created the Kickstart project, Reboot the Suit, to raise fund to “conserve, digitize, and display Neil Armstrong’s and Alan Shepard’s spacesuits.”
It raised more than $700k which enabled the Neil Armstrong’s lunar spacesuit to be displayed on July 16th, 2019!
One of the great thing about owning a piece of sport equipment is customization, to make it uniquely mine. A bike offers many ways of customization and here are mine. Some of them are more customizing my riding experience vs. customizing the bike itself. (I haven’t included pictures of the mundane stuff like foot pump, spare tube, CO2 canister, tire repair kit, and saddle bag)
