The opposite of training

As the racing season winds down, I’m looking forward to the opposite of training. Where we just tour, travel, and ride big miles into the Fall. The MS150 is coming up and travel with folders to

and the Modal for longer rides to

Paris-Brest-Paris Starts Monday!

P-B-P I’m nowhere near this hard-core, but P-B-P starts Monday. It’s 1200k in 90hrs for those of you unfamiliar with this old-school test. I know a couple people who are out there doing it. If you run a google blog search, you’ll find more than a few people blogging about their adventure. The coolest feature: Check out the P-B-P site where you can track rider’s progress along the route! I tracked the guy I know, and it correctly told me that, “le participant est inscrit mais non encore parti” (he hasn’t started yet). Good luck!

Update

We haven’t heard from him yet, but Andy is planning on blogging P-B-P for us.

QBP Launches Civia Bikes

Quality Bicyle Products (QBP) launched a new line of bikes this month under the name Civia Cycles. From QBP.com they are described as “High-end bikes and products designed for practical everyday transportation”. No pictures yet, but the blog on the Civia site notes that they will be launched at Interbike 2007. We’ll be sure to get right on it and get some pictures up to BikeHugger as soon as we can track them down.

For those of you who don’t know QBP - ask any shop. They describe themselves as “the shop behind the shop”. They provide special order and stock for most smaller shops (and probably the bigger ones too).

Adam Carolla goes wrong

Adam Carolla took his humor a little off track this morning. During a bit about “This Week In Rage”, a caller brought up cyclists riding in the road (omg - the horror). I think the caller explicitly stated spandex-clad cyclists riding 3 wide, but it sort of went downhill from there. Adam was mostly tongue in cheek about most of it, but the co-star of the program, Danny Bonaduce was a little less careful and offered to mow down cyclists for entertainment purposes. This sort of stuff isn’t new and has gotten plenty of attention in the past. Most of the show is usually available for download later in the day.

Seattle’s a Bike Town

In front of the Whole Foods, at 2201 Westlake, there was a fixie, electric bike, and dutch cargo bike, all in close proximity. The photos are merged here and also available in our photostream.
