A new pair of gloves . . .

Check Pink Bike and Flowers post on racing hard to win a new pair of gloves, which is only slightly better than winning a tube, tire, or the all-time favorite, a seat post. Ah well, we don’t do it for the money.

Redlands in Review

IMG_0515 Team Bike Hugger had an outstanding first NRC race of 2007 in Redlands, California. We rode well as a team, enjoyed time together before and after each stage of the race and were a positive presence in Redlands. We also had a good time reporting on the race through the team’s blog. Check it out for race videos and final thoughts on the race.

The Bike Hugger shirts are really cool, we got lots of compliments on them. We suggest that if you wear a size small jersey, to order a medium shirt.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our race experiences with the Bike Hugger community. We have all returned home to compete locally until we can get back together again for another NRC stage race (tbd). I’ll be writing for Bike Hugger periodically, for more on racing and whatever you’re interested in hearing about.

Trek’s Custom Bikes

Apple profiles Trek and the tools they used to create their Project One experience. It’s an interesting read with quotes like, “a bike isn’t just a set of wheels. It’s an extension of bone and muscle, a projection of personality in motion. It’s not merely a machine, it’s personal.”

In the Santa Barbara photos, you can see the Project One bike Union Bay Cycling is racing on this year and, as I’ve posted before, getting personal is an alternative to an industry that’s increasingly homogenized.

trek_project_one.jpg Trek’s coasting bike, Lime, is also discussed in the profile. And I just found that Lime is blogging with updates on sightings, news, and a podcast.

Bikini Cruiser

This shop window photo summarizes the bike scene in downtown Santa Barbara well: lots of cruisers, girls on cruisers, tourists, and more cruisers. With wide bike lanes, lots of signs, easy-to-follow routes and great weather, cycling flourishes in Santa Barbara. More photos on Picasa and Flickr.

Custom Bikes for City Dwellers

SpinDaily, a trends and styles video podcast, goes shopping for a custom bike at Orange20Bikes with Jorja Fox from CSI. In another edition, SpinDaily visited Freecity Supershop, a retail store we posted about last year.

Good thing to see bikes as stylish, especially with stars from hit TV shows!
