I’m not one for pageantry or showcases, but after seeing a Pink Floyd flying pig, hearing a few seconds of the Sex Pistols, a montage with Waynes World, Bowie, and PRODIGY!, I was impressed. Then these spacey dove bikes roll out, and Danny the Director was melting my face off!

Here’s a video that shows the magical bike-bird hybrids rehearsing.

Wiggo’s Aero Road Bike

This is Wiggo’s Olympic bike and the ground effects were likely described as

separating the dirty air from the front end of the bike and it’s wrapping around Wiggo’s sideburns.

and with an Austin Powers voice, we ask does that make you HORNY?

Cycling Weekly has more photos and details on the bike we think looks like it was spotted on the set of Space Balls II or Twitter’s Aero Fail Whale.

Lewis and Clark Road, Seaside OR

crappy camera

How’s this crappy cell phone camera photo look on your retina display? Road was great!

On vacation in Seaside OR, we set out for a quick spin to loosen up the legs after racing Monday and Tuesday night in Portland. Found one of the best roads we’ve ridden together. Then Pam saw a Ghost.

Lewis and Clark Road has a gradual climb with flowing descents into S curves and well-worn chip seal with a generous shoulder. Just a few cars passed us and we could’ve ridden all day, but had to get back to the family and a visit to Cannon Beach for salt water taffy. Didn’t see any locals out there, but expect if we did, they’d share the various routes and loops.

Pam may have seen her reflection briefly in my eyewear or something else. We don’t know, but of all the miles I’ve ridden with her, she’s never reacted like that to a rider that wasn’t there. She kept looking back over her shoulder

What’s back there?

There was another cyclist, in a yellow jersey following us for the past few miles, on your wheel.

No one back there, I’d know if so, and no one was there.

Weird. Saw a cyclists get on your wheel around that bend, then he was gone. Really weird.

It was weird and we’ll remember it as the maillot jaune ghost of the Lewis and Clark Road. He appears at the bend, drafts, and disappears.

Glow In The Dark Fixed Gear

Demands you wear a matching glow in the dark shirt or at least have glosticks in your skinny jeans

A Fixie that glows from Pure Fix and ships to your door for $400.00. Get your black light out, rock n’ roll posters, and party with this bike. I’d put Knog lights all over it too. Careful though, don’t want to attract cars like moths to a flame. During the day, that fishing lure green is bright too. 

Bright as a fishing lure
