Too Long; Didn’t Ride or Too Short Didn’t, Ride

I was explaining micropublishing to writer and colleague David Quigg and finally said, “Here, TL;DR,” with this blockquote

Oh, right, our role: we are carving out a new, deeper niche for Bike Hugger. Our goal is to serve the under-served audience, one that seeks higher quality information and wants to be free of advertiser and retail bias. We write about what we ride, wear, and like. And we expect you to pay for the service.

from a Medium post I wrote about our magazine. Being the very literal person he is, got this reply and drawing…

TL;DR made me think of “Too Long; Didn’t Ride™,” which could either be the basis for A) an app featuring short but great crowd-sourced cycling routes for busy people or B) a T-shirt for long-distance cyclists (see attached terrible sketch).

That terrible sketch may lead to a new startup!

BMW i3 at the USA ProChallenge

The BMW i3 is at the USA Pro Challenge this week and that’s the 1st time an EV has been in a bike race caravan and allowed in a UCI Race. Here’s the Edmunds video review of the electric Bimmer and I’m working on more details of this story.

Also sure the racers appreciate not breathing smog from a tailpipe….

On Medium: Cycling The Highlands

Cycling the Highlands

And so with a year-long project having just wrapped, I left work for a few weeks. But rather than hiking the hills Wainwright so loved, I decided to reacquaint myself with one of my own great passions: my bicycle. The following is a journal I kept during that time.

A story about stepping off a roller coaster and onto a bike from Jeff Veen, a long-time, tech colleague of mine. Find more stories like this one in the Medium Bicycles Collection and our Magazine.

Mobile Social Interbike 14: Ride the Strip

Moso

MoSo IB 13

The 9th annual Mobile Social Interbike meets on Thursday 9/11 an hour after the show floor closes. Once assembled (about 6:30 PM) we’ll ride the Strip and arrive in Downtown at The Park on Fremont for beer specials and schwag. THEN we’ll move to Atomic Liquors for a knog Photo Booth and Hat Press. Joining us this year @newbelgium, @ternbicycles, @Knog, @PureFixCycles, @revolights, @greengurugear, and you!

Fun Map


This year, around the block from the cocktails and coffee, is Las Vegas Pedalpalooza and the Crit.

It’s gonna be one of those stays in Vegas nights on bikes… We’ll ride, party, and then party some more.

Details

Note that this is a long MoSo, so we’ll get broken up by the lights. Don’t try to regroup, just ride on and meet at the party. We’ll see you when we all get there and will keep the beer cold.

As usual, the first 250 to RSVP get the schwag and drink coins. The details:

  • 6:15pm – Registration at the South Convention Center Parking Lot, nearby entrance to Daylight pool club.
  • 6:45-7:00pm – Depart
  • 7:45-8:00pm – Arrive at The Park on Fremont
  • 7:45pm-10pm – NBB Beer Specials and some goodies (Screenprinting) at The Park and Atomic Liquors (Knog Photo Booth and NBB Hat Press). Watch the Crit.
  • 10pm – Tern bikes get packed/loaded out

For those new to the ride, this is a casual, social ride. We obey the lights, stick to one lane, and act like goodwill ambassadors during Interbike. Play nice with the cabbies and the rest of the drivers on the Strip think it’s all part of the Vegas experience.

See you there.

And here’s a edit from 2013.
