Bike Hugger Retail

Seeing the Bike Hugger Jersey in a shop window was cool – a sense of accomplishment.

We came, we rode, we blogged

We could post for a month about Interbike 07, the Industry Cup, and the Hugga Hookup, but I’ll highlight a few topics, produce several podcasts next week, and resume our regularly scheduled programing on Monday. Also see the posts from our Interbike feature blog.

Urban Theme

brooks_basket.jpgWhile much of Interbike was the same this year, Urban Bikes were the overall theme with a big presence from Batavus, Dahon, and bikes finally shipping with Alfine, like the glorious Sycip.

I paused for a long-time at the Brooks booth to look at the most expensive basket ever made and it’s based on a 100-yr old design from Mr. Brooks himself. Also see the Brooks waxed-canvas messenger bag.

New York to get Paris style bike rentals?

New York Mayor Bloomberg is in France, and apparently considering a bicycle rental program similar to the popular parisian Velib system. Bloomberg doesn’t sound very optimistic unfortunately. Apparently NYC tried this out on a much smaller scale earlier this year. Chicago and Portland are evaluating a rental systems too.

Seattle September Critical Mass ride report

I rode Seattle Critical Mass on Friday, great time and and a nice ride as always. The weather was lovely for a ride, could be the last rain-free mass of the year. We ended up cruising from downtown through Ballard, up Stone way past Greenlake and down University ave. I had to peel off a bit early, would love to hear where the ride ended up.

I was a bit surprised at the amount of antagonism between drivers and riders, it seemed quite a bit more than I’ve seen earlier this year. One comes to expect a certain amount of frustrated car drivers, but it really seemed like the level of animosity was on the rise.

I managed to snap a few photos along the way, here’s my set from the Bike Hugger Photostream

Racing in Vegas

We’ll tell legendary stories for the next 20 years about the Industry Cup race with Team Bike Hugger, the Hugga Hookup, and Cipollini. Read Andrew’s race report, Velonews, and see more photos in our photostream.
