Staying Caffeinated

Coffee and cycling go together, always have, and I travel with my own grind and french press to make sure wherever I am, I’m fully caffeinated. I use a Bodum travel press and it works great.

Now, I just discovered the Aerobie AeroPress and it looks a little big for travel (would work in the Scicon bag), but I bet makes one mean cuppa joe. It’s a french press with a filter and air pressure.

925 at the Golden Gate Bridge

A reader sent a blog about riding in San Fran and a 925 at the Golden Gate Bridge.

I’ll be in San Fran tomorrow for a seminar about blogging. It’s a day trip, so I won’t have my bike, but San Fran is a great town for riding.

Bike Valets in Japan

A reader sent us a post from Stippy.com on bike valets in Japan, who keep all the bikes orderly. Imagine that, riding up to a building, handing your bike to a valet, and having it parked!

Biking with GPS

Ask MetaFilter | help me equip my bike with gps | Ask MetaFilter

There’s a good post over at MetaFilter asking about using GPS on bikes. The original poster was interested in a GPS solution to fight theft (LoJack on two wheels), which is still pretty impractical.

But the post does mention some interesting applications and products. There’s the Garmin Edge 305, a GPS with cycle computer and heart rate monitor in a unit small enough to strap to your stem (or its little brother, the no-heart rate Edge 205).

Of course, you can just use a handheld GPS, as well. Once you’ve got a route in the GPS, you can track your rides and share them through MotionBased (here’s a MB example ride).

Addressing the original question, I found this article at Popular Science about using mologogo and a prepaid cell phone. I’m just not sure how you could effectively hide the cell so it doesn’t invite the theft the original poster was trying to prevent.
