Team Bike Hugger had an outstanding first NRC race of 2007 in Redlands, California. We rode well as a team, enjoyed time together before and after each stage of the race and were a positive presence in Redlands. We also had a good time reporting on the race through the team’s blog. Check it out for race videos and final thoughts on the race.
The Bike Hugger shirts are really cool, we got lots of compliments on them. We suggest that if you wear a size small jersey, to order a medium shirt.
Thank you for the opportunity to share our race experiences with the Bike Hugger community. We have all returned home to compete locally until we can get back together again for another NRC stage race (tbd). I’ll be writing for Bike Hugger periodically, for more on racing and whatever you’re interested in hearing about.
Apple profiles Trek and the tools they used to create their Project One experience. It’s an interesting read with quotes like, “a bike isn’t just a set of wheels. It’s an extension of bone and muscle, a projection of personality in motion. It’s not merely a machine, it’s personal.”
In the Santa Barbara photos, you can see the Project One bike Union Bay Cycling is racing on this year and, as I’ve posted before, getting personal is an alternative to an industry that’s increasingly homogenized.
