Enough readers have sent us bike drifting videos that it’s time to post, especially this one from Tokyo. Note, back in the day, especially on big wheels, we called it “skidding.”
In light of the news from Tailwind Sports and the end of Discovery Channel, thought we should just put it out there to the ex-Disco pros that don’t have a job, that we’ve got Team Bike Hugger. The team deal is shirts, socks, kits (on the way), and you get to blog all about your racing plus ride around on the Bettie!
Car drivers are already seeking alternative routes around town, anticipating what we’re calling the traffic apocalypse. Yesterday, one of my normal routes was so jammed with traffic that I turned around and got right back onto the bike path.
So what’s a bike hugger to do when Ken Schram’s commentary is about cyclists? Call him out and no need to go negative with Ken. Just say, “how bout you ride with me during the traffic apocalypse next week?” Don’t need no spandex, I’ll show you a sharrow, maybe join a bike bus, we’ll get a cup of coffee, and share a cyclist’s perspective on traffic, the cops of Lake Forest Park, SUV drivers, and the shame that is Seattle traffic.
