Amy Selikoff and Nathan Selikoff spontaneously decided to take a bike ride from Florida to Canada. They planned for months and took time off from their jobs. The actual journey was fraught with accidents, detours, and bad weather. They found that it was similar to marriage. Every marriage is a different journey filled with its own special joys and obstacles that need to be solved in their own ways.

How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature
BY NICHOLAS RAJKOVICH
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"How do we start thinking about heat waves and why are heat waves so important?"
In How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Professor, Nicholas B. Rajkovich describes the design of a bicycle-based weather station used to find the “hot spots” of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Every year in the United States, more people die from heat waves than any other type of natural disaster. Extreme heat events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. Collecting a fine scale of microclimatic data can help to determine how physical characteristics contribute to human exposure to ground and air temperatures. These data also suggest how urban design strategies can reduce the impacts of the urban heat island effect. However, microclimate measurement poses substantial challenges. Rajkovich’s work investigates the intersection of energy efficient buildings, renewable energy, and climate change resilience.
