Professional cycling is getting curiouser and curiouser. Then I found this video, and I laughed till I cried. This is from the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim program, Robot Chicken.
- A Traffic Calming Sasquatch
- GravityKarma from the UK notices that we’re green and pedally (now that’s a tag line!)
- MSU Bike Project helps more people ride bikes on campus
- Seattle Tilth offers bike tours of P-Patches
Green and pedally!
Hi. Thanks for coming into my shop and taking part of the consumer experience. Your disposable income is the sole source of our meager profit margins that support the shop’s overhead and indirectly my income.
What’s that? You’d like to ask me a bunch of questions? Why sure, I’d love to take time away from the other tasks that would have had priority over your whimsical visit, after all, I am a living reference free of charge.
In conjunction with Bike To Work Month, Cascade’s education arm has launched a new campaign to spread the word about “Giving Cyclists Three Feet of Space”. I’d seen a few posters and bumper stickers around town, but it was on my bike commute to last weekend’s CTS ride that I saw the first billboard on South Dearborne, a major cycling artery into downtown Seattle.
Working in the tech industry, when not blogging here, I’ve been following Negroponte’s One Laptop Per Child program. It started at $100.00 has gone through various permutations and he’s set to release it at $170.00. At the same time as Negroponte is evangelizing the laptop, the bicycle industry in various nonprofits is giving bikes to Africa: helping farmers, rebuilding economies, and transportion for health workers.
While I see value in OLPC and the passion that brought it to market, I also think a bike is going to help a kid more than a laptop. It’s working locally at Bike Works.
What do you think?
