Before that

We don’t like cyclists that run red lights either and hadn’t thought that hipsters built tall bikes to make themselves more superior.

Bike Share NYC: Same as it Ever Was


Riding Velibs in Paris

David Byrne, in a thoughtful piece for the NYTimes, is expecting bike share to transform NYC for the better. New Yorkers and visitors will experience what we did in Paris riding Velib all over town, to and from tourist attractions. It was great!

Bikes can transform our world and make it better. New Yorkers are about to see how.

What Byrne and advocates overlook is the bike backlash and people competing for the same space in a very crowded city. I’ve had an editorial on the back burner that states, “bike advocates are not social engineers. They’ve done amazingly well at getting us access and forwarding an agenda, but do nothing or are ill-equipped to handle their success. It’s like they’ve hyped, promoted, and thrown a big party then ran out of beer. “

Last time I rode in NYC, we got attacked. Last week on the Burke-Gilman (a major bike thoroughfare in Seattle), saw a cyclist strike a pedestrian, and I had words with another.

Next time in NYC, I won’t bring a travel bike and ride their new share. I’ll also have an eye out for New Yorkers that don’t give a shit what mode of travel I choose, just that I’m not in their way or take up the space they want.

That’s the same as it ever was.

Someone’s Vagacini on Flickr


I was searching google with safe search = off, and I saw someone had posted pictures of their Vagacini on Flickr. You don’t often see Vagacini on Flickr, but I’d say that this one is pretty hot. There was only one Vagacini closeup shot, but you can tell it is super tight. You couldn’t fit bigger rubber in there, or at least not in the front.

It Takes Two

Patterns emerge occasionally when riding and this one was passing two people on a bike.

A Weekend of Riding: Memorial Day 12

As is the tradition at Hugga HQ, we ride, relax, and BBQ with our friends on Memorial Day Weekend. The Holiday always arrives after a busy Spring and we need the break before going into Summer with more travel, events, and bike racing.

To kick if off, I rode with Joe and Mark from the Elite team. Clouds were in the sky, so they were on their Volagis. We rode tempo with a few sprints and fast through the arboretum.

Bros on their Volagis

Tomorrow, expect to ride 4, maybe 5 hours. Then Sunday more riding fast.

How ‘bout you?
