Cage or cure?


Veltop cyclist protection

So Fritz over at Cyclelicious found the Veltop, at right, and wonders whether his readers would ride with something like this.

For me, it seems like a solution in search of a problem. Here in Georgia, the combination of heat radiating off the black fabric and the windows blocking the cooling airflow means it wouldn’t be much help against the sun in the summmer.

Maybe if you’re fighting cold and rain together, it would work better, but it looks like it would produce a lot of extra drag, as well.

I survived Bike Expo 2007

Still recovering from two days of bikes, bikes and more bikes. Great event, wonderful exhibitors, fabulous speakers. Stay tuned for a more detailed synopsis in the next day or so. For now, I’m off to dig through lots of great schwag over a glass of wine.

Extreme Cycling in Alaska

alaska_girl.jpg Researching routes for an upcoming tour in Alaska, I found Up in Alaska a blog written by an, “Alaska journalist who likes to bicycle in horrendous conditions and eat goldfish crackers and Pepsi for breakfast.” Right on. Seeing a photo of Jill riding in the rain reminded me of our tour a few years back.

Seattle Bicycle Touring Club

SBTC wrote to say hello and cool. They’re an informal group of recreational cyclists promoting rides and fun for its members. There’s a lot going on in their clubhouse, including maps and a gallery.

Bikes, Beer & BMX

This weekend’s Bike Expo is nearly upon us and I’m excited to be bringing the “best of” to those of you who aren’t able to make it out for what is arguably Seattle’s mecca of cycling culture. While I am personally hoping for some dry weather, a light drizzle will certainly not keep me from hitching up the trailer and hauling the family out to kick off the cycling season.

Between the 150+ exhibitors and a packed presentation schedule, I plan to bring plenty of cash for the beer garden and a comfortable pair of shoes. You’ll find me in my Bike Hugger Shirt, camera in-hand.
