Bicicle2, by valpopando.
Last year, just about this time of year, I was riding in Colorado, up to Lizard Head Pass and just as my head started to clear from work stress, I was focusing on surviving the hail, cold, wet and precipitous drops off and thought, “this is it.” This is what I want to do and blog about. This is my lifestyle. It is about the bike and I’m lucky enough to work with designers and clients that made this blog happen.
We’ve still got some work to do. Get a blog roll up, photos, affiliates and mostly post about riding, commuting, and cycling.
Bike Hugger is a blog for the cycling enthusiast, for the commuter, and people getting into the cycling lifestyle. We’ve also got product reviews in the works, ride reports, and more. Bike Hugger is about riding your bike and we’re glad you visited. Today we’re soft launching, in the coming weeks, we’ll post more features, and later today we’re going out for a long ride.
The author test rides each around Washington, DC, and rates the Brompton smallest folding and cleverest, the Birdy, with its front suspension system, the smoothest, the Xootr as “most like a real bike,” the Dahon Speed Pro the fastest, and the Speed D7 the best value ($330 list).
Toronto residents woke up yesterday morning to a general transit strike. As a result, bikes ruled the day, with Treehugger reporting:
The bicycle proved itself to be the most efficient means of transport and, next to walking, the only thing that moved. We hope many of these new riders find that they like it and keep it up!
