Folding bikes and Football

folding_football.jpg Pam and I rode the folding bikes to the Seahawks game on Sunday. First to the Water Taxi, across Elliott Bay, and unto Qwest field. The Seahawks don’t offer bike parking, besides racks, so we decided to fold the bikes and walk right into the stadium with them – we had comped tickets at the club level.

For the most part, everyone was nice about the bikes, curious, and thought they were cool. Security didn’t know what to do with them and just let us pass through. If we attended games on a regular basis, we’d just rack them to not attract so much attention.

Of note, the Flyby continues to attract people with lots of questions.

Bike Polo in Seattle, and the Times

bruisedbybike.jpgLooks like Bike Polo’s hitting the mainstream in little old Seattle, heralded by article in the Seattle Times. But it’s not just here; it’s been in the Times (in New York) earlier this year.

Bike polo’s fascinating in it’s diversity. Ranging from the very formal and internationalized version played in the US and farther a field to urban park polo played in major cities all over the US. Here’s a mallet-cam view of a game in NYC.

My favorite are the mini bike events – like the Bruised By Bike event detailed on Alex Wetmore’s blog earlier this year. These folks are totally nuts in the best possible way. I hope I get a chance to attend next year’s bike rollo.

Being Dutch with Bikes

The Dutch government is taking firm measures to discourage cars. Sundays are no car days, SUVs are taxed, and the more you pollute the more you pay. Read on and rejoice. And check the 3-level bike parking structure in this Amsterdam documentary

During Interbike we’ll look for the Dutchness and blog it up. New models are coming to the US from Batavus, including the Lightning.

Mountain biking speed record broken

Markus Stöckl finished out the last day of summer riding his mountain bike down a… mountain. Unsurprising I suppose, except for the following: Top speed of 130mph or 210 km/h. On Snow. This breaks an 8 year old world record. Several of the articles mentioned he was forced to hold his breath during the descent. Personally, I’d be much more worried about my bowels. Clench inducing movie is here.

Time flies on the Flyby

Following up on our Flyby podcast, Novara got us their new Dahon-engineered folding bike for a long-term test and I rode it on Alki last night.

I think it’s the combination of the swooping frame, graphics, and little wheels that gets the attention – for me it was the Nexus 8-speed shifting and the ability to actually climb hills on it. Shot the photo with my iPhone.

Ultra Mobile Bike Devices

While Intel announces all sorts of the “new” at the Intel Developer Forum, I’m thinking “does this tech apply to bikes?”

Sure we’ve got heart rate monitors, trip and speed computers, power meters, GPS, but I’m thinking an iPod bike or ultra-mobile PC that I can pop into a basket on my urban bike, like the BenQ.

There’s a Nike+iPod, why not a bike?
