Pedal Power Booth

Delta 7 Sports and Miōn Footwear partnered to power their booth at the Outdoor Retailer show with a mountain bike. Scott emailed me about it and we got a photo from Delta 7 Sports. Show attendees, employees, and anyone else they could find, attempted to pedal more than 3,000 watts of electricity per day


Rob’s Bike Courier Service

From the Coloradoan, a story about Rob Martin’s bike business.

… each morning, Martin hops on his bike to pick up bagels from Gib’s and deliver them to Old Town coffee shops … every trip I make is one less car on the road or in some cases, one less truck,” he said while collecting recycling at Lyric Cinema Café in Old Town, the fourth stop on his recycling rounds that day. “I want to be part of the solution.


Of course, a bike economy interests us and besides the bagels, Rob picks up recycling for local businesses.

What I’m wondering is what other businesses can run with bikes?

Human powered commuting across the Puget Sound

Here I’ve been feeling so sorry for myself riding the roads in the cold weather, and not one but two dudes have been riding the sound this winter and for many winters past . I’m don’t see myself giving up my spot on the bus for a water bike on my short trip across Lake Washington, but I’m definitely impressed. Thanks to Bill for the tip! The aqua bikes seem like a very good option for a trip on the sound, stable and reliable, maybe a bit pokey. Turns out there are lots of options. If I’m gonna compete with the water skiers next to the SR-520 floating bridge I think I’ll have to get me one of these and those 6-pack abs I asked for for Christmas. For those with a bit of spare time, here’s a DIY.

Shanghai Cargo

In April, Bike Hugger will blog Shanghai by bike and expect to see cargo just like this shot from a Reuters photographer. When we were in Beijing, I saw meat bucket bike, bubble-wrap bike, and more. Jason shot this old women and her market bike in Taipei.


Total Euro Style

With Cipo in the news, including the whole King of Pants thing, Frank of TDFblog, sent me this link to the (official) euro cycling code of conduct. Cipo has apparently signed with Rock & Republic, and will only be racing in the US, which does suffer from a shortage of men confident enough to wear anything totally euro.


Besides all the women in the States, those of us with white booties, Assos kits, and Cipo Man Crushes are as excited to see him race, as 9-yr olds with Hannah Montana tickets. I know I’ll line up and crush the barriers, just like at the Interbike Crit.

Anybody else with Euro cycling fashion sins to confess? Like, “ridiculously stylish eye wear is to be worn at all time without exception.” Or absolutely “no black socks!” Or a dangly chain with a full unzipped jersey.

How Euro are you?
