SXSW Urban Ride Route

Here’s the Bike Hugger SXSW Urban Ride Route


Bike Hugger 2.0

BikeHugger2.jpg We’ve got Bike Hugger 2.0 in the works, with a refreshed design, more community, and 33% more hugganess. Going into the upgrade process, we’d like to know what you think. So please tell us. What should go into 2.0? How can we give you even more bike hugga?

Kinetic Chain Sculpture

Instructables is coming to SXSW, stopping by the BBQ, and bringing this Kinetic Chain Sculpture with them.

That looks like hours of fun in a bike shop and also a great hand cleaner demo – “here, hold this chain-art thingy for a few seconds and then try our Pedros enviro-hand cleaner! Also see

Too Euro

After putting these Carnac booties on, I thought, “hmm maybe too euro, even for me.” Lycra booties do serve a purpose in Spring weather. They keep the chill off, aero, and keep the feet drier when the roads are wet. These ones though look like Smurf boots, but at least their not White Booties


Opinions? Are these indeed too Euro or should one always embrace their inner Euro? They also totally don’t match the Modal or Hotspur.

Will Google to add a ‘Bike There’ option to Google Maps

Here’s a great idea – add an option to Google Maps to show bike paths and directions in the same place you’d get driving or public transit directions. It ain’t so yet, but it could be if this petition can catch the attention of Google’s map teams. There are tons of online city bike maps, some already mashed up into Google’s maps like this New York City map. Seeing how nicely it plays puts other city bike maps to shame (Portland, Seattle – warning: Big downloads). Having bike routes available in online mapping apps would be a great step forward for many cities, and a big encouragement for those who might just go by bike with a bit more information.
