Georgia riders to descend on state capitol Tuesday

If you want to make a difference on bicycle transportation issues in the state of Georgia, a big chance comes up next weekend.

It’s the second “Georgia Rides to the Capitol” event, with the mayors of three suburban cities (Decatur, Marietta, and Roswell) joining Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin on rides to the state capitol in Atlanta. Distances range from 5 miles (Decatur) to 21 miles (Roswell) one-way.

The rides are timed to arrive at the Capitol around 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6. Police will escort the rides inbound but not outbound.

Maps and cue sheets are available, and the first 2,000 riders to register will be provided lunch and entered in a drawing for a VIP pass to the Atlanta stage of the Tour de Georgia in April.

WashCycle offers Top 10 Bike Movies

WashCycle | Bicycle Movies

In honor of the Oscars, WashCycle offers a Top 10 Bike Movies list. We all know what’s at the top of the list, but this list offers some good variety, and a couple of films I’ve never seen. And I’m a sucker for the line “Still includes best method for proving one is in Texas.”

Also, any movie list that includes Better Off Dead rocks, by definition.

Notable exclusions?

Any reports on the ride? The ferries full o’ bikes?

Bike with Wii

From Bike Biz, I learned about the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle and the gadget blogs also noticed – rolling out a product with Richard Simmons is an invitation to snark. Not only have I thought, “hey my trainer could charge my cell phone battery or something when I’m doing intervals” I also thought it’d be cool if the chitlins could ride along with me. Now, junior needs some little bike shorts, legs are already smooth, and I’m guessing the Fisher-Price program is way more fun than anything Tacx or other VR trainers.

I’m hoping that Wii offers a bike attachment somehow for the older kids and they can at least pretend their riding around by like sitting on the coach and moving their legs up and down or something.

While you could set up an obstacle course in your garage for the kids to run their bikes into, or even just ride with them on a bike path, anything that address the fatness of the US, Bike Bugger hugs.

Recording the Tour of California

Has anyone actually recorded and watched the Tour of California? OLN/Versus/Golf the Rodeo Channel or whatever they call themselves has the most maddening schedule, or lack thereof. I don’t understand how you can operate a channel with a fluid schedule and I dislike rodeo even more, when I expect to see Levi riding a breakaway into the ground and instead see a cowboy falling of a cow!

I’ve set and reset the dvr repeatedly and it never records and the TOC isn’t there. I found the time trail last night by chance. Maybe their channel codes are messed up or something.
