James at Bicycle Design points out that Sheldon Brown, one of the most helpful and knowledgeable bike experts on the internet, is suffering from neurological problems that have pushed him from two wheels to three.

Brown is keeping a health journal on his condition, and the current diagnosis is maybe Multiple Sclerosis. If you’ve considered riding or sponsoring a rider in an MS 150 ride this year, maybe this will provide a little extra motivation.

If you’ve never experienced Brown’s bike pages, here’s a good place to start. Here’s his Bicycle Glossary, here are repair tips, and here’s his fixie page.

Travel with Bicycles

When we were planning our trip to Spain, I found the Travel with Bicycles (Air/Rail/Other) site that provides a wealth of data on traveling with your bike.

Interestingly, when we were in the airport, we saw cyclists that just handed the airline their bikes with not packing at all.

Another Hugger

We’re proud to announce the birth of our newest baby Snow Hugger. Manned by me, Snow Hugger is Bike Hugger’s colder, more mountainous cousin: a blog for ski and snowboard enthusiasts.

I’ll be enlisting some of my fellow aficionados to help me post from ski shows, demo equipment, and try out the slopes. We’re going to share our tips, hacks, and experiences, and if you’re a skiing, snowboarder, or other snow enthusiast, we want to hear yours.

Oh, and Byron has promised to own the snow tube beat.

PezCycling in Girona

A Pez-Fan was either ahead, behind us, or nearby in Girona! Check Thom Fox’s report on his rides in Girona, the food, and more. Tom stayed at BeauneImports and hooked up with BikeCat. A few miles away, we stayed at the Moli de Mig and rode with maps provided by Cicloturisme.

Read more about our trip and see the photos. We agreed with Tom, Girona is cycling nirvana.

The Number Lance

Pam was checking out the NYC marathon and noticed that Lance’s number is “Lance,” not like 1 or 00, just “Lance.” She also thought he sort of ran like a girl (on that, I’d win an award for running like a girl).

Riding dirty

The first rain ride of the Fall is usually dirty with all the grime, oil, grit and dirt built up from the summer bubbling across the road. This year, because it’s already rained so much, the grime was much less after the ride.

That was great, but I think this much early Fall rain means it’s going to be a very wet winter.

Treehugger | Bike Lamps from Treeline Designs

Treehugger offers up Treeline Designs, which offers lamps built around suspension forks.

Among the coolest features are the way the lights get activated: On some, you flip the canti brake to turn the lamp on or off, and on others you do it by compressing the fork itself.

If you’ve got a sentimental attachment to an old unused RockShox Judy, this is the perfect way to keep it around and drive your spouse crazy at the same time. Just tell her it’s a major award.
