Kinetic Chain Sculpture

Instructables is coming to SXSW, stopping by the BBQ, and bringing this Kinetic Chain Sculpture with them.

That looks like hours of fun in a bike shop and also a great hand cleaner demo – “here, hold this chain-art thingy for a few seconds and then try our Pedros enviro-hand cleaner! Also see

Too Euro

After putting these Carnac booties on, I thought, “hmm maybe too euro, even for me.” Lycra booties do serve a purpose in Spring weather. They keep the chill off, aero, and keep the feet drier when the roads are wet. These ones though look like Smurf boots, but at least their not White Booties

Opinions? Are these indeed too Euro or should one always embrace their inner Euro? They also totally don’t match the Modal or Hotspur.

Will Google to add a ‘Bike There’ option to Google Maps

Here’s a great idea – add an option to Google Maps to show bike paths and directions in the same place you’d get driving or public transit directions. It ain’t so yet, but it could be if this petition can catch the attention of Google’s map teams. There are tons of online city bike maps, some already mashed up into Google’s maps like this New York City map. Seeing how nicely it plays puts other city bike maps to shame (Portland, Seattle – warning: Big downloads). Having bike routes available in online mapping apps would be a great step forward for many cities, and a big encouragement for those who might just go by bike with a bit more information.

Urban Ride Flyer

Sign up for the SXSW Urban Ride on Upcoming. Here’s a PDF version of the flyer, like if you wanted to plaster it all over your garage or maybe make a nice hat.

Aeolian Ride

I’ve read the Aeloian Ride website a few times now, trying to grok it, after getting a tip from Zannestars and think they’re def onto something; especially, if the inflatable suit is combined with Aero corduroys (no, I don’t make this stuff up)!

Inspired by a love for bikes, city cruising, critical mass, costumes, sillyness + things that inflate, i decided to make a free, mass participatory event with a sense of humor. It excites those riding as well as delights those watching, all the while transforming the landscape into a playground of windfilled shapes.

That looks like lots of fun and I pinged them to see if they can make it to SXSW.
