Downtown Traffic Nightmare

As if there weren’t enough cars on the roads, the upcoming lane closures on I-5 for the better part of August will push hundreds of cars onto alternate surface streets and push already crowded roads over the curb. With the effects of the construction expected to cause extensive regional and downtown traffic nightmares, what’s a cyclist to do?

Preceded by this weekend’s traffic madness; including the SeaFair Torchlight Run & Parade, two home games at The Safe and the Capitol Hill Block Party, this town’s in for a world of standstill.

There’s a part of me that isn’t looking forward to weaving my bike through all the craziness during my daily routine. And yet, as I witnessed a cyclist fly by a twenty-car backup today from the driver’s seat of my overpriced SUV, I realized that I’d still rather be on my bike.

Rolling the Rollers at Toona

The racing continues for Team Bike Hugger at Toona. They’re 8th overall in the Team GC with Julie Beveridge in the top 20 and Nicole Wansgard made an appearance on Cyclingnews with this photo.

Novara Buzz Fly By

In our latest Huggacast episode, we check out Novara’s new Buzz Fly By. The Fly By is a folding bike designed by Dahon that features a Nexus hub, unique graphics, seatpost pump system, and lots of attention to detail. Of all the bikes Novara showed us, the Fly By is my fav.

Trails Win!

Cool to see the front page of the Seattle paper to have 2 lead cycling-related stories.

The Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board has overturned a law in Lake Forest Park restricting the development of the Burke Gilman Trail through their city. As the front page lead article in the Seattle Post Intelligencer states, they have been trying for years to limit trail (of thousands) in favor of the locals who live on the trail (much less than thousands).

Le Tour de life

While Le Tour continues, in chaos, this photo reminds me of “Le Tour de life,” where we just love bikes, that’s our dope.

Yes, no helmet, but the photo speaks for itself and also what you’re telling us in comments.
