More Maui Miles

In a few weeks, we’ll ride more Maui miles. I blogged about our riding last year in Maui and the climb up to 10K feet on Textura Design (my personal and business blog). This time we’ll ride Napili and blog it all. I found Cycling in Paradise, Tong’s report, Cycling Maui, and Go Cycling.

Have any of you ridden the big miles in Maui in the Napili area? Where’s the good coffee?

Playing with Wrenches

You there! With the 15 pound road bike! Put the wrench down SLOWLY and step away from delicately assembled $8K eggshell on wheels.

Free City Supershop sells bikes

Again with bikes in the NYTimes! – this is like all the blogging stories in 2005, suddenly in 06, bikes are a popular topic. That’s definitely good for bike huggers and the story about Free City Supershop, a totally impractical retail experience has a great photo of a cruiser with a basket. There’s also some insight into being faithful to your ideas, how the Gap wants to rip you off, and to “make things with the simplest elements with the highest of possibilities.”

I can’t think of a better mantra for an urban bike.

Finding gifts for cyclists

A reader just sent us Imagini Gift Finder that sorts gifts by your visual DNA (sort of like eHarmony with a 40 point personality profile or something). It’s fun to see all the choices and mine came back with a Life Cycle for a midwife in a developing country; the Cycloc, a simple solution for bike storage (big props for the Clip-n-Seal style minimalism) and a bicycle taxi.

Considering gift-giving, King County is publicizing it’s Waste Free Holiday program with “experience” merchants. For the past two years, our holidays and gifts have been trips and we’ll ride all over Maui again this year. In 07, we’re planning Bike Hugger tours and those will be experiences! Of course, we’ve got our store and the goods we sell.

Sewn in San Francisco: Timbuk2

Just in time for the holidays, Timbuk2 has announced Limited Edition Messenger bags – 43 styles, 18 speciality materials, classic Timbuk 2 Designs, and all sewn in San Francisco. While I’ve got a new lust for re.load baggage, I’ve been very happy with my Pro Series Messenger Backpack (shown below). Not only does it a carry all my stuff when traveling, it can be seen from the International Space Station! I think it also confuses the TSA, as it’s so bright, I get through security lines a bit easier.
