Custom Bikes for City Dwellers

SpinDaily, a trends and styles video podcast, goes shopping for a custom bike at Orange20Bikes with Jorja Fox from CSI. In another edition, SpinDaily visited Freecity Supershop, a retail store we posted about last year.

Good thing to see bikes as stylish, especially with stars from hit TV shows!

Backcountry Bicycle Trails Club

I was begining to suspect an anti-bike slant at the Seattle PI until they ran the article on the Backcountry Bicycle Trails Club work on an urban mountain-bike course under I-5.

“What this is all about is the police department trying to get Critical Mass,” said Norman Siegel, the former head of the New York Civil Liberties Union who represents the Five Borough Bicycle Club, which sought to block the NYPD’s new rule in federal court this week.

About 50 riders were ticketed, some for traffic offenses.

The New York City ride, which starts at Union Square, has been targeted by police in the past, particularly during the Republican National Convention in 2004, and in January 2006, Judge Gerald Harris ruled that Critical Mass did not require a permit.
