Schooner Exact, the makers of Bike Hugger Brown are having a brewers night tonight at the Beveridge Place Pub. According to Marcus, the Minister of Propaganda for the microbrewery, “This is going to be a special one, we were able to take a little taste of it the other day right out of the fermenter and we could not put it down!” The West Seattle blog also noticed the arrival of a new beer from Schooner.
Ahead of the ">antler-design trend by months and way more stylish with the whole global warming thing are antler bikes (stylish and saving the environment, like Sheryl Crow!). We first spotted one at Interbike, Bicycle Design posted on 8 point handlebars, Razor Apple has got the furry antler version, and the then there’s the King of the Road, which was ahead of it’s time.
Of course, there’s a blog about the Secret Life of Antlered Girls, who also ride bikes.
The NYTimes picks up the story about the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle – we posted about the child-size trainer earlier this year. We still like the idea of training next to your child. While they “whack-a-mole,” you can do your sweaty spinervals.
Unsure if Fisher-Price has dropped Richard Simmons from their marketing – the bloggers had fun with that odd choice of a spokesperson.
Filmed by Bike is a festival of bike-theme movie shorts – check the program for titles like Tag 5:10, a bike messenger chases a rollerblader through the streets of London and Snot Rocket Bike, an upwards look at the grim reality of biking.
I don’t see where you can view the vids online, but the festival posted on their success and they sell DVDs. We’ve been uploading hugger videos to Google. Also see Start 2 Finish, a documentary about the racing scene in the Pacific Northwest.
