It’s a small bike world

Bike Hugger got its start in part because of all the bike culture I noticed as I traveled around on business, speaking at conferences, and vacations. These bike connections continue today and just this week at Web Design World where I met Planet Propaganda. We talked blogs, social media, and the work they’re doing with Gary Fisher.

PDX Bike Exhibit

Traveling a lot leads to airport fatigue and there’s nothing more refreshing than seeing a bike exhibit!

The exhibit is organized by the Port of Portland, Sweetpea Bicycles, the Regional Arts & Culture Council and the Portland Development Commission.

PDX is my fav little airport and many of Webvision’s attendees will see the exhibit as they arrive.

The idea is to build a comfy, capable and elegant bike for getting groceries, riding to the outdoor cinema, etc. I’ve added a lovely and comfortable Brooks

Update (5/7/08): Flickr Group

Based on the popularity of this post, Byron created a bike bags Flickr group. Pop in and upload photos of your setup–if you’re inclined, write a few words describing it and why it works for you (if you don’t have a Flickr account, you can sign up for free to share your photos). Byron loaded the Hugga Bag and has photos of the Raygun coming….

Our friend Jim Coudal needs some advice:
