First it was the Pinks and now the Cohos are running in Elliott Bay, near Hugga HQ. Today, another fisherman rode up with this old Raleigh Technium. As noted on our Instagram, a great second career for that bike….
Just arrived on our Amazon store is the latest in Biologic’s case line, the SportCase for iPhone 6. Earlier this year, the case won a Design and Innovation Award at Computex and it combines robust protection with a secure mounting system. The SportCase is manufactured with a tough hard plastic shell bonded to anti-shock thermoplastic rubber with an AnchorPoint mount system. So your phone is mounted and protected on the bike, in the car, or wherever you’re traveling with it. The thickened corners provide extra cushion from the drops and non-slip texture helps prevent them. Shipped for free with Prime, the SportCase retails for $34.95.

Sage Titanium, CX
Today the Sage/Lucky Envelope Brewing cyclocross team was announced for the 2015/16 season. As you can see on the back of the jersey, Bike Hugger is involved as a media partner. The Sage/Lucky team will focus on strong race results in the Pacific Northwest, Single Speed Worlds, and Nationals, but more importantly connecting with, and contributing to the cycling community. “Sage is extremely proud and excited to partner with Lucky Envelope Brewing,” said Sage Cycles owner David Rosen. “Sage has been a feature on the Portland cross scene for the past couple of seasons, and by partnering with Lucky Envelope Brewing we are able to expand our racing schedule throughout the Northwest. Lucky Envelope Brewing is a true supporter of cycling and an ideal partner.”
“After meeting with Sage and hearing about the vision for their quality-crafted cycles, we saw many similarities with our business goals here at Lucky Envelope Brewing,” said Raymond Kwan of Lucky Envelope Brewing. “Our decision was largely driven by Sage’s desire to build a relationship between their brand and the CX community, both on and off the course.
Pint of Lucky Envelope Beer
That meeting took place at Lucky Envelope’s brewery in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. As Raymond told me, “Cyclists are a major part of our customer base and of interest to our staff, so this sponsorship extends the Lucky Envelope family beyond the tasting room and into the growing cycling community in the Pacific Northwest.
The tasting room
Sage and Lucky are excited about the new team and so am I with the rest of the story to follow. It’ll start at CrossVegas later this month with events at Lucky’s tasting room to follow; and, of course, at the races too.
Well that reminds me, it wasn’t quite A Line at Whistler, but did ride a Scott CX bike at Park City
and it was as much fun as the video above. Best part too, watch how he slides off the bike when the front tire loses traction.
From that time we rode Velibs in Paris
Ever since Velib, Barclays, bCycle, CitiBike and the like, we’ve noticed the bike share boom too. And while I believe that capital would be better spent on infrastructure, instead of sharing schemes, the numbers are impressive. City Lab breaks them down in a visual story that started with free bikes in Amsterdam…
Does it feel like suddenly, bike-share programs are everywhere? The seemingly simple concept has indeed swept across the globe in a matter of just a few years. This is the story of just how quickly a great idea can spread when combined with the right technology—and a few fateful bumps along the way.
Seattle’s bike share kicked off last year, and is also reporting success with a major corporate partner, Alaska Airlines.
