Just got a snazzy print postcard today from the Group Health Seattle International Bicycle Expo and yeah! It’s huge this year, at Magnuson Park this year with hucksters, booths, bike celebs, an event schedule, and much more.
I head to Australia pretty soon for three weeks of sun, family, and hopefully bikeriding. Of course I have to wait for my new bike to show up in order to perform that last item. I previously posted about what’s the best. I’m pretty sure that waiting for new toys to show up is the worst.
As for the challenge, well it’s going to end soon. I’ll be in a flying tube of Aluminum for over a day.
I grew up coveting the classic wooden power boats of the 20s through the 50s. Chris Craft, Hacker Craft, and Master Craft are still icons to me. But those wooden hulls and bright work come at a cost.
Woody’s Custom Fenders has captured that aesthetic–and made it available for your bike. The photos speak for themselves.
Just because you ride a bike instead of a real chick magnet like a Harley doesn’t mean you should go another rutting season without attracting a mate.

Ever find yourself at the end of a bike path and riding right into traffic, railroad tracks, or sidewalks or car doors? It’s a definite problem and the Seattle Parks Foundation has announced Bands of Green, an effort to make create more loops from existing paths and trails.
Hopefully they’ll coordinate the bands with the Bicycle Master plan and such topics as wayfinding.
