Packed for Maui

We’re packed and leaving for Maui on a day of pouring rain. At least, it’s not the windstorm from last year!


Check the Timbuk2 bag snugly fit in the S&S case, next to the Modal. I designed that a couple of weeks ago with the BYOB feature and it matches the hugga colors. Like the Crumpler I took to London, but more compact to fit into the smaller S&S travel case. I’ll use that for errands and a few shorter rides. Inside of it are tools, pedals, HRM, etc. Also notice on the bottom left, the green Knog Frog light.

1st day of cycling seaon in Sea-town: 01/01/08 (Greenlake, Noon)

Get started on new years cycling resolutions right off the bat: noon on the 1st. Meet up at Greenlake, near the basketball courts. This’ll be a slow speed ride to Golden Gardens. Cargo bikes are bound to abound, but the invite is open to all. See you there!

Seattle’s anti-dooring signage—Take SDOT’s survey

lookoutforbikes_sign.gif Looks like Seattle’s taking the issue of cyclists getting doored seriously, or at least more seriously. There’s a new sign up on Dexter and SDOT would like to know what you think it means – Take the survey here. Maybe we’ll see more of these soon if the general public can figure out what they mean.

I’ve been the recipient of a door prize myself (I lived – I was headed up hill thankfully) and there’s not much I worry about more when riding my bike. How many huggers have had close encounters of the car door variety? What are your cities doing about it?

The Girlfriend’s Bike



p> It happens all the time: boy meets girl, boy decides to get her a bicycle. This is especially true for hardcore bike geeks. These relationships don’t always work out. Scan eBay listings for road bikes smaller than 52cm and you’ll find a dozens of stories about bikes for girlfriends that just ended up collecting dust. Oh, and the girlfriends don’t always stick around either. Then that bike definitely is an eyesore.

So getting your girlfriend a bike is always a risky move. But it can be fun.
