Manpris (that’s capri pants for men, but we don’t call them that) are def in and the longer the better. Seen here are Keith and me comparing our ‘pris.

We don’t get into politics here, but as a bike culture item, the Obama Spoke Cards are making a statement. For equal spoke time, someone should offer Hillary Spoke Cards … .

Bike Huggers Ride the Rockies

Comments

A group of our readers just purchased Hugga Jerseys and will wear them during Ride the Rockies later this month. We’re are running low on stock (back-ordering mediums directly from us, still available at Amazon) and new club fit jerseys are on the way. The Club Fit jersey from Hincapie offers more room for commuters, urban cyclists, and beer drinkers. We’ve also got new socks on the way and some surprises.

Portland Urban Cycling Style

We didn’t get enough photos of all the Portland Urban Cycling Style, but did notice much dapperness, like this cycling gentleman with his shoes that matched his shirt.

Also saw several women cyclists in cowboy boots. Saw a couple of those fashionable horse-riding helmets, but no beret helmets.

PBR & Planes

If I could only work on Bike Hugger full time, I’d photo blog all of the industrial areas we ride through. While Seattle is known for it’s software, tech, and biotech, it’s actually an industrial port city.

Built during the Klondike Gold Rush, the town thrives on boats, planes, trains, and beer like PBR.

These murals are painted on a building in the Georgetown Neighborhood, across the street from the old Brewery.

Bianchi Mini Velo: I still want one!

I’ve had a Bianchi fetish forever. Bianchi makes all manner of bikes internationally, but some bikes are limited to a single market. The Bianchi Milano used to be a US-only model, but now several other countries offer something similar. However, the Bianchi Mini Velo is only available in Japan. I’ve wanted one for years. Maybe next spring I’ll have to make another Japan trip but this time come back with a really nice momento.

Last year I wrote from Japan about the “mini velo” genre of bike in Japan. Bianchi’s looks like a retro racer with ridiculously small wheels.

I’ve wanted one for years before I had ever been to Japan. God, these things are so cool. I’ll buy the cheaper 8sp model, strip the parts, and build it up again with Suntour Superbe Pro. It’ll be so hot.

NYC Introduces Protected Bike Lanes

Comments

From the Washington Post today

City officials, hoping to make commutes like his less treacherous, have created a seven-block experiment of a bike lane on Ninth Avenue. Here, concrete dividers and a row of parked cars shield a bike lane from the street and its traffic. Low mini-traffic lights show when cyclists have the right of way. Bike commuters, messengers and delivery people peel down perfectly smooth paths.

The article also cites Portland as an example, how bikes are fashionable, and cites a needed change from car culture to bike culture in major cities. (Who’d a thought we’d see NYC promoting commuting!)

One of our faves is still the Calmest Road in America.
