Get started on new years cycling resolutions right off the bat: noon on the 1st. Meet up at Greenlake, near the basketball courts. This’ll be a slow speed ride to Golden Gardens. Cargo bikes are bound to abound, but the invite is open to all. See you there!
Looks like Seattle’s taking the issue of cyclists getting doored seriously, or at least more seriously. There’s a new sign up on Dexter and SDOT would like to know what you think it means – Take the survey here. Maybe we’ll see more of these soon if the general public can figure out what they mean.
I’ve been the recipient of a door prize myself (I lived – I was headed up hill thankfully) and there’s not much I worry about more when riding my bike. How many huggers have had close encounters of the car door variety? What are your cities doing about it?
We’ll stop directly shipping our Hugga comfort retail line (socks, shirts, jerseys) from December 18 until the new year. All of our goods are available on Amazon.com and shipping for Christmas Eve until the 22nd. See the deadlines at Amazon Gift Central.
p> It happens all the time: boy meets girl, boy decides to get her a bicycle. This is especially true for hardcore bike geeks. These relationships don’t always work out. Scan eBay listings for road bikes smaller than 52cm and you’ll find a dozens of stories about bikes for girlfriends that just ended up collecting dust. Oh, and the girlfriends don’t always stick around either. Then that bike definitely is an eyesore.
So getting your girlfriend a bike is always a risky move. But it can be fun.
