I got the family ready early Saturday morning for Starcrossed. My 5 year old picked out a boiled wool coat, winter mittens, and pink cowboy boots (nee shitkickers). The incredibly good weather was not just surprising, but left me flat out broke for the mud-faced splatterfest I’d promised. Regardless, we all had a great time watching the races. The crowd was very friendly, and I managed to get in a few photos (bikehugger photostream!) during the races. Great teamwork by some of leaders in the Mens 3/4 35+ category, with a team from Boston taking the early lead.

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’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.

Dude from Minneapolis builds a tallbike. A collapsing tallbike. He boxes it up, and takes it to Rwanda. While there he hooks up with Tom Ritchey, races his extremely tall singlespeed in the wooden bike classic, and helps the Rwandan coffee farmers get better prices for their coffee by distributing longtail bikes and microloans.

While we were bringing the jerseys to market, putting the Hugga Hookup together, and just starting to think about getting the rain bikes ready for Fall, the women of Team Bike Hugge we’re racing the Bermuda Grand Prix.

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.

We’re expanding our Interbike presence and coverage this year with the Hugga Hookup, during the Criterum Championship. At the hookup we’ll have products, industry, racing coverage, blogging, and podcasting. The hookup is about creating community during Interbike, talking about what we do, hanging out, and watching the bike race.
So far, we’re hooking up with
Show up at our tent during the race. Bring your product, yourself, a great idea, your industry stories, and hang out. If you’re a blogger, come and blog with us. The details
Our team is racing the Industry Cup in our new kits and either rejoicing after we finish or recovering after getting dropped!
We’re easy to spot, we look like this photo.
The hugga hookup is a concept we’ve been working on for a while and it came together with the help of Ravi and the Swagger LLC crew organizing the race.
