Taking a pull on the TDF Blog

As Frank announced, I’m guest posting on the Tour de France Blog for a few days. Frank is attending a funeral, spending time with his family, and I’m going take a pull for him.

More Whiz Bang Tour de France Tech

Just checked the NYTimes interactive TDF feature and it’s very whiz bangy, even more whizzy than the “ticker” from Velonews. Live commentary, standings, profiles, and more.

Seeing America feet-first, west to east

Cycling across the U.S.A | Touring Hardin

Bill Cook is a retired journalist doing an Adventure Cycling route across the USA (looks like their 30th Anniversary Premium Supported trip). Adventure Cycling got started back in the ’70s, and was called Bikecentennial when it helped create the TransAmerica Trail. Thousands of riders (galleries: Richard Rathe, general) toured the country for the US Bicentennial in 1976.

Adventure Cycling is celebrating their 30th birthday, and there’s still time to make one of the organization’s Birthday Bashes, in Boulder August 12th.

Cook is about one-fourth of the way, near the Little Big Horn in Montana, and blogging the whole trip for McClatchey Newspapers. He’s a recumbent hugger, and has a company, Barcroft Cycles, that designs and builds ‘bents, including the Dakota model he’s riding to Washington, DC. The trip was marred June 25th, when one of the party was killed in a car-bike accident in Washington state. Yesterday was a much better day: “one of those perfect days: Lovely weather, a nice tailwind, remote empty country, a long downhill run and a short riding day.”

All we can hope for.

America’s longest-running bicycle race

Celebrating it’s 66th year, Redmond Derby Days is this weekend. Outside of Portland, Redmond is the most cycling friendly town and they’ve got a whole festival centered around a bike race. Between heats, you can also enjoy music, parades, and more.

REI: Big Miles Logged

Becky, an Outreach Specialist for REI Kennewick, reports outstanding results for their Commute Challenge with nearly 3K miles logged from 50 riders. That’s impressive and adds to a record-breaking bike month this year.

Seeing all those commuters during Bike Month in Seattle is what partly inspired Bike Hugger.
