Valentine's Day Bicycle Love Rant

 

 I love bicycles!

 

What a fascinating contraption right?  They've been around for centuries, and haven't changed much in recent decades, design-wise anyways.  But there…

Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen Sometimes Ride Bikes

Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen sometimes ride bikes.

 

So what? Who cares?  Well, popular opinion and the media do.  And endorsements are worth a lot of money.

Just thought I'd share with you a few clips.

Here's Bruce Willis riding a Citi Bike to the Letterman Show. I can't say I don't admire…

Wow.  Look at that thing.  If this isn't a step in the direction of a Jetsons-like future, I don't know what is.

Designed by Ipv Delft and located between the localities of Eindhoven, Veldhoven and Meerhoven in the…

SkyCycle and the London Donut Effect

There is a new transportation system being proposed in London by Foster and Partners.  The new system would be constructed over the existing train lines.  The system would be nearly 137 miles in length (220km).  It would be nearly 50 ft wide (15m) and feature over 200 entrance points.

Lofty, isn't it? I…

New Fillet Brazed Bike

I've just gotten a chance to take my brand new fillet-brazed fixed gear bike I made out for a longer ride around Portland.  I built the wheels myself as well.  Since this picture, I've managed to wrap the handlebars and attach a brake lever. It cuts the corners like a hot knife through butter, and it's like a race horse out of the starting gate from a stop light.…

Don't Ride on the Sidewalk Kids

Get out in the road.  

It's there for you too cyclist!  You pay taxes to be able to freely transport yourself from A to B.  There's no law against riding a bike in the road, and for good reason.  However riding on the sidewalk is a seldom enforced legal violation in many places.

I saw a man who was hit by a right-on-red motorist yesterday afternoon in Springfield, VA.  If you've ever tried to ride in Springfield, the place is a bike nightmare.  With the "Mixing Bowl"…

Tour des Lacs Banlieue

Pardon if my French is poor.  I mean to say "Tour of Suburban Lakes."

Anyways, I had to get out and explore today.  And also, it was time to buy more light bulbs: excellent excuse to go on a ride.

Don't worry, those aren't miles.  It's a little over 31.5 miles in total length.…

Bicycles in New York after Sandy

Photocredit: Streetblog/Elizabeth Press

Want to know how to get around post-natural disaster in a metropolitan city?  Try a bicycle.  Why? Roads are closed, the subway is flooded, the bottleneck effect is huge.  Well how do you get more through put on a road?  Just use a smaller vehicle.  Are the fuel stations…

Cycling in China

How do you think of cycling in other countries?  Unfortunately, they say cycling in China is in decline.  A country that has relatively prospered without a a multitude of cars is finally falling victim to an overabundance of automobiles.  This is due to a lot of things, but I'm not expert on it.  All I know is, it's harder for people to ride a bike when there are more cars.  Evidently, the convenience and status appeal of the car has finally diffused from Western countries, and ironically I…

VeloCity Bike Cooperative

I have yet to make it to this cooperative. One day I may, but in the mean time, it looks like they're doing just fine.  Check them out, work on your bike, and go hang out and bullshit.  It's a great way to meet people and learn. You can't beat that.

Helmet Hair

For the ladies out there, I'm going to attempt to recommend an article on a subject I know nearly nothing about - women's hair styles.  They say this is a good way to avoid helmet head, especially if you've got longer hair.  Let me know what you think!

Washington DC Tour De Fat

Although I was unable to attend this event due to my ride in the Shenandoah Valley, I would have loved to have gone.  Luckily, my bud Michael made it and took some great photos.  They say it was a great success, and the fundraising for bike advocacy was exemplary.  Hooray!

For fans of beers and bike, the New Belgium Brewing Company brought its Tour…

Bike Move

So Ande and Brooke, on the 1Love Tour, which I will be joining shortly, have been very busy.  They're currently in Oregon, getting a sense of what bike culture is like there.  Ande did this short film about the "Bike Move," and what it's all about.  It's amazing stuff indeed, making a usually terrible experience into a fun one. Check it out!…

Moonrise Kingdom - Bill Murray

This movie is going to be awesome.  Bill Murray is a bad ass.  He does his own bicycle stunts.  That is all.
