Interestingly the green lanes look like astroturf – expect some street artists to set up lawn chairs, beach balls, and a picnic blanket. There’s a Critical Mass suggestion. Next one, go and occupy all the Green Lanes and just chill there.
Note: to Portland, "we got Green Lanes too!"
And I sorta feel like a Bear at the Zoo, where they drop new toys into an enclosure to reduce boredom. This Summer in Seattle, the City has added new wayfinding signage, green lanes, new bike lanes; it’s all very exciting!
It’s spring in Seattle… Critical Mass’ers came out in full force to celebrate the return of long days, and favorable biking weather. The best way to confound an angry motorist stopped by a mob of cyclists? Hand them a Tulip.
I’d like a bottle that didn’t harm me with nasty chemicals and one that let the water taste like water – too bad the Camel Back Bottle is bulky, doesn’t fit in the hand well, and I know I’m gonna drop it. The nipple action is very good though.
Not only stylish, but that cape is woven with high visibility Lumatwill. Commute in style and make sure you’re seen. Pair that cap with the Beret Helmet and a baguette in a basket. How could BSNYC refuse to wave hello when your rode by looking that good?
A friend sent me a link to a riding-buddy’s pictures from the Giro - instant gratification. When I first started following cycling, you had to wait for Cycle Sport magazine to show up to see the first shots of the race. CyclingNews (then Bill’s CyclingNews with the teal background) usually had the results posted within a couple of days.
Now we get live, streaming video, photos as they happen, and detailed same-day coverage. Add to the standard media sources all the user-driven sites like Flickr, Blogspot, and Twitter and you are surrounded by our sport. Gotta love those interwebs.
Big thanks to the folks at Glacier Bikes for keeping me in their loop.
