Jens Voigt Soars Like an Eagle

Eagles man, eagles

He can suffer sure and ignores his legs, but it’s when The Jensie gets spiritual like Billy Jack, is when we get teary.

Jens soared like an eagle in Colorado today.

Pedicab Confessions at SXSW

Your business plan is meh

Every year hears a thousand startup ideas

Ask and confirmed that the pedicab cyclists in Austin hear more drunk business plans than anyone. All without an NDA!

What started with a tweet during SXSW 12 is now a panel submission and short documentary idea.

Relevancy

We’ll share with you what the pedicab drivers hear, see, and think during SXSW, as they ride around Austin with attendees in their cabs.

Here’s another…

Expect a humorous, lighter side of tech and Southby. No NDA required. Of course we need you to vote for the panel and we’re already planning our next trip there with the annual Mobile Social and more.

Transition to Cross 13

D-Plus at the harbor

That time of year (finally) for the transition from road to cross. The workouts begin at a harbor park where big ships come and go, like the SeaTac Marine barge.

Big ships come and go

It’s a technical effort there with multiple sets of stairs, gravel pits, and a grassy knoll to run up.

I’m nursing an injured leg that is sore and throbbing while I ride, so not going that hard.

Sharp Dressed Man: Bicycle Cufflinks

Chainlink cufflinks

Attended Vanessa and Kevin’s wedding in Seattle last weekend. The groom wore bicycle chain cufflinks and the bride rocked flip-flops under a white chapel train.

On their watch, a wedding

Across the street in a park, hipsters kept watch from a crows nest while a fixie with gold trim and a front reflector was locked up around the corner.

Hipstah reflecting like a Playah

As I told those visiting Seattle for the occasion, the Capitol Hill neighborhood is the heartbeat of the City. It’s where Van and Kevin exchanged vows. The links from that chain were real too, just like their love.

Bike Trippers by Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly documents his latest Coast Ride in a free Bike Trippers PDF and iPad book.

I made a book – for you! – of our recent bicycle journey down the coast of the Pacific from Vancouver Canada to San Francisco. It’s 60 pages of photographs and lessons learned. My teenage son and nephew also report on their impressions of seeing this side of America. I think it conveys the enthusiasm of human powered travel, and the glory of what we saw. You might even find it inspirational if you have a similar dream of riding a bike on a long tour. I printed up several copies with Blurb for ourselves (and you can order one yourself in the unlikely chance you want to), but anyone who is interested can read the ebook version. There is a free PDF and a free iPad version. For now, that’ll be the three formats: printed book, PDF, or iPad. – KK

Kevin is the Senior Maverick at Wired magazine and publisher of Cool Tools. We haven’t met our ridden (yet), but years ago he mentioned Clip-n-Seals (a consumer product the parent company of Bike Hugger makes) on his blog. Back in 79, he rode a bike from San Francisco to New York and sketched what he saw in a notebook. Last year he published those sketches in another eBook.

You can also purchased a printed version of Bike Trippers from Blurb for $50.00.
