Mobile Apps for Cyclists

Comments

With the blogosphere and news media abuzz about the next iPhone, MobileMe (your mac online), and more mobile apps, we were wondering here at Hugga HQ what apps cyclists would want on their iPhones?

  • Location-aware rides and routes
  • alert me if the toll bridge is up!
  • Dock my phone and get all my stats.

We’ve discussed this, in part, before and we’re thinking about again with the steady flow of iPhones apps expected.

What do you think is cool, would work for you?

Moto + Bike

I’ve thought that a good way to demonstrate biodiesel or even electric cars is in a bike race caravan. You can bet that caravan and all the racers and spectators traveling to a race are spewing out their share of carbon. Well, check this bike motorcycle setup spotted at a race this weekend.

What is Velocouture?

Comments

by Galen Maynard on Jun 08, 2008 at 7:10 AM

Velocouture was coined by Patrick from Portland, (a bike hugga and avid Flickr contributor) His Flickr group by the same name, Velocouture features photos of stylish practical clothing worn while cycling. For cycling to take hold as a major alternative form of transportation, people should feel as comfortable off their bikes as on them. Many would be cyclists conjure images of spandex clad, ultra fit tour riders, and simply never consider the possibility of a short trip to the store on a bike in practical clothing. I love catching sight of plain clothes cyclists in fashionable garb. We need more of you on the streets, showing the rest of us that cycling can be a simple, fun, and practical form of transportation.

Functional Urban Cycling Fashion

Comments

I came across this photo on Flickr that illustrates a simple and creative way to give basic slacks some cycling utility.

This cyclist has stitched a highly reflective triangle of 3M inside both pant legs. When the legs are rolled up to avoid chain grease, the reflective patch is revealed. This is a great solution for urban cyclists and commuters that want to increase visibility without sporting cycling specific fashions off their bikes.

What about you? Do you have any practical tips for maintaining visibility?

Pressure Leak

Following our earlier post about Pressure – Cinelli & RVCA working together with artists on bikes – we acquired a photo of a frame with custom paint by artist Barry McGee.

Considering the design aesthetic, I could see this frame built up with either a retro gruppo or straight-up modern, fixed. How would you build up an art bike? Or would you just hang it on the wall?

Social Media Essentials @ BizJam

Comments

by Byron on Jun 06, 2008 at 7:08 AM

A quick aside from the bikesphere blogging, to post on BizJam Seattle. Textura Design (publisher of Bike Hugger) worked with the event organizers to add a Social Media Essentials day. Good stuff and intended for those wondering what Social Media is.

What’s this thing called Twitter? Why are businesses even interested in Facebook? You want to start your own blog all about compact drivetrains? Dude, I don’t even know what RSS is!

2550152198_3cc8f5a1e0.jpg We’ll answer your questions and teach you how, Bro. And it’s notable that this is the event with the girls. The speaker line up includes more women than men. I think that’s a first at a tech-related conference.

Cycle Seen 2008

Comments

by Galen Maynard on Jun 05, 2008 at 3:00 PM

Cycle Seen is a celebration of the cultural diversity found within one city’s cycling community. The event features bicycle related photographs collected from local artisans and cyclists. Photos are grouped together and displayed in 9 locations throughout the city of Portland. The locations are as diverse as the photos; they range from cafes and bike shops, to a local grocery store. This makes each gallery and its surrounding community of artists unique. A 30 mile organized ride is scheduled to hit all 9 stops on June 14th. The above pieces can be found at Stumptown Coffee Roasters and will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit “Bikes to Rwanda.” The show will run in most locations through the end of June.
