Graham Watson visiting Boulder

VeloNews | Graham Watson to Visit Boulder for Exhibit Opening

Pro racing’s top photographer, Graham Watson, will kick off a 3-week exhibit of his photos in Boulder next week.

It’s both free and open to the public, and Amante and Twisted Pine Brewery will be providing refreshments.

Atlanta co-op raises money by building parking

Sopo Bicycle Co-op in East Atlanta is building sweat equity alongside better bike parking.

They’re distributing a flier volunteering to install bike racks at local restaurants, coffee shops and other destinations for the cost of the hardware plus a $25 donation to the co-op, or $140 per location.

Three new locations, including legendary Atlanta watering hole Manuel’s Tavern, went up over the weekend, with more to follow.

They’re tracking responses from the merchants and location requests from riders. It looks like a great way to simultaneously improve the cycling climate and raise some money for the organization, which provides free and inexpensive maintenance and repair training.

Sopo is a registered 501(c)3, so if you’re looking for a tax deduction and want to promote better bike parking in Atlanta, consider donating cash or old parts and tools from their wish list. They’re also looking for volunteers.

Photo of the day

Rode ‘till it froze

frozen wheels I rode till it froze yesterday – starting in the cold rain and finishing in freezing rain, I kept going until I couldn’t shift, or brake, and my tires made disconcerting snap crackle pop sounds as I rolled over the icy roads. Besides mountain bikers, I guess I was the only one out riding the roads yesterday in the Tri-Cities.

As I’ve posted before, icy or not, that area has the best roads in the state and I’ll ride them again next weekend.

Shimano widgits, breakfast muffins, and the Olympics

shimanogeneratorhub.jpg Yesterday I attended the Shimano tech seminar. It was a super secret affair open only to bike shop employees and hobos who wanted the free breakfast muffins. I suppose I got there too late for the segment about road bike groups (9AM start? I don’t do 9AM), so I sat down as the speaker discussed the new XTR and Saint groups. Even though I am mainly a road and track fanatic, I leaned back into my chair and eagerly listened to all the fascinating new developments in disc rotors and bearing (yawn). modifications that lengthy field testing .(zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz). (snort) um, what? It’s over?…do I have any questions?……um, do you have any muffins without cream cheese in them? After that the minions of the Imperial S company fanned out to the various tables of product to field questions from the riff-raff.
