Glo Gloves: Turn signals for your hands

Gloglove.jpg I’ve mentioned them before, but when ever I wear them I get questions and comments so it’s time for a bit more coverage.

Glo gloves are simple, reflective over-gloves which will help you survive your night time rides. Here’s a good review by the Gadgeteer, but you won’t need too much convincing once you understand the value of the gloves.

These are the same gloves you see police officers directing traffic with, although there are 3 models, only one of which has the ‘stop sign’ on the palm. You can get this model online or at uniform stores here in Seattle and elsewhere.

Back in Maui

We’re back in Maui for Winter Break, training, and riding the last batch of big miles before racing season starts. We rode yesterday and unlike the last trip, it didn’t rain on us – woohoo. We also discovered a new bike path!

I’m riding a new set of Hed wheels while here and will report on those later.

Hugga Minutia

Getting ready for SXSW and the rest of the blogging this year, we’re updating the blogosphere with Hugga Minutia on Twitter …

While Tim reminds us that racing is coming up, and ghelf advises on what day is better to shower, I’m thinking of tracking the debut of the Brooks basket to all the baskets seen at the Handmade Bike Show.

Feb08 RideCivil Ride Report

Despite a threatening weather report we got a very reasonable turnout for last night’s RideCivil – 5 growing to 7 as we recruited a few more riders along the way. We managed to overcome the persistent drizzle around 5:30, and by the time we hit the road around 6:15 the rain dried right up. Our route meandered about 9 miles (props to Kat for the map!) through downtown on several big loops, and ultimately headed south to the Elysian Fields pub for a bit of food and beer before I had to head out. It was great to see folks from many different cycling communities coming together (Cascade, .83, Seattle Likes Bikes, and various commuters) all representing. Next time the Big Boom Box will definitely work.

Next up we’ll have a couple strategy and planning discussions, as well as announcement of next month’s ride. Check back here for future updates.

SXSW Bike Rentals

BSS25_rgb_125h.jpg Need a bike to ride with us at SXSW or just get around town? Well, as part SXSW’s sustainability efforts, they’ve partnered with Bicycle Sport Shop in Austin to provide rental bikes to SXSW attendees. Reserve a bike soon, as the rental inventory is limited.

A bike will liberate you from all the SXSW Interactive PowerPoints – it’s pedals not panels and for all the details and more updates, keep checking the Bike Hugger BBQ @ SXSW page.
