A Most Interesting 20090

We’re back from the Bahamas and before we ride into the New Year, let’s look back at the most interesting content we published in 2009.
Mark V’s post about the BioLogic FreeCharge generated the most traffic. The hits are likely the result of cyclists being into tech and early adopters. We also broke the story.
The top story of 2009, in terms of bike culture, is Danny Macaskill. His YouTube video has been viewed 13.5 million times since it was uploaded in April of this year. We noticed it too and saw it linked, mentioned, and tweeted about all year long. According to the NY Times, the 30-second spiky fence trick took four days to shoot and the entire video was filmed over 6 months.
Danny is now a celebrity and before that a bike mechanic.
Happy New Year all. We hope to see you out riding.
