Rattan Bike

I was in Vegas earlier this week talking about blogging and podcasting at Web Builder 2.0 and spotted this rattan bike in a display window. The display artist, or someone, carefully and meticulously wrapped an entire bike in rattan. The closer I looked, the more detail I discovered. Also, curiously, the front basket had several bike lights tossed in it. Slot machines are reflected in the display window.

Eine Kleine Fietsmusik

Create Digital Music | Ensembles, Symphonies, and Bikelophones

Over at Create Digital Music, a post last week featuring the Nutcracker Suite played entirely on bike parts (by “johnny random”) led to a whole host of bike/music mashups.

There’s Stephen Schweitzer’s Bikelophone, a Motobecane Grand Jubilee that’s given its life to music. Literally. There’s a variety of strings, spokes, and bells alongside an Electrosonic interface that simulates a Theremin, and the whole thing is wired into a mixing board.

The podcasters at The Bike Show just did an edition called “Experimental music and the bicycle”, and they’re trying to organize a performance, in conjunction with London’s Grand Depart of the Tour de France this summer, of Godfried-Willem Raes’s Second Symphony for ‘Singing Bicycles’.

And don’t miss the CD that looks like a patch kit.

Downhill Metro

From Reuters Video and Digg we’ve got reports of the Red Bull Mexico City’s Downhill Metro. When I read that headline I thought, ok, they run down the tunnels. Nope, they downhill the escalators, stairs, up and over the turnstiles and so on. Brian Lopes posted on the event promising some photos.

More Maui Miles

In a few weeks, we’ll ride more Maui miles. I blogged about our riding last year in Maui and the climb up to 10K feet on Textura Design (my personal and business blog). This time we’ll ride Napili and blog it all. I found Cycling in Paradise, Tong’s report, Cycling Maui, and Go Cycling.

Have any of you ridden the big miles in Maui in the Napili area? Where’s the good coffee?
