SmartBike DC

Comments

columnview.jpg According to press reports over the weekend, Washington DC is launching the first bike share program in the US. It works like Zipcar with an annual fee, stations, and 120 bikes. The SmartBikeDC bikes are three-speed, upright “comfort” bikes. They feature mudguards to prevent the rider from getting wet, chain guards to keep clothes from getting caught, front and rear lights that turn on in the dark and easily adjustable seats.

A quick teaser that we’ve got Bettie 2.0 being built right now as well as the Yuba Mundo – full tests and posts are coming soon. With two longtail, sport-utility, cargo bikes on test, maybe we’ll race them or something …

One of the Worst Jersey Designs?

Comments

by Jason Swihart on Apr 26, 2008 at 11:47 AM

ok, I like Hincapie as much as anyone else, wish Team High Road well, but what is up with that jersey design?

Is there some retro 80s aesthetic I’m missing? Did they just pull all the other sponsors off before it was sublimated?

Rural Punk

While focused on climbing, I enjoyed this video from Gregory Mountain Products, and longed for a ride in the quite of nothing around me. The video features Joe Kinder, an NYC Punk that went rural in Hurricane, Utah.

A cross-country ride comes to mind, like touring France, or riding back to China. Where you have moments like this and this

Tax Rebates = Bike Parts

cash.jpg With the news that the economic stimulus checks are going out, I wondered what bike huggers would spend them on; would they bank the cash for gas when they have to drive, upgrade their bikes, get some new bike parts, wheels? Donate it? Or work on folding it all into shirts!

What are you spending it on?

Falling Cars and French Fries

I’d add a bike rack to this art project

for the irony and found this French Fry Holder incredibly obscene and then thought, “that’d be pretty cool for Bettie when taking the kids out to eat!

Green My Ride transportation fair: 4/26 in Seattle

Comments

gmr.jpg Happy Earth Day all, a great time to think about reducing your impact on the planet. Transportation is one of the key areas we can effect in our own lives and if you’re in Seattle’s north end this weekend stop by the Green My Ride transportation fair. The fair’s at the Phinney Neighborhood Center between 9:30 and 3:00 on this Saturday the 26th of April. The announcement says rain or shine, no word on snow but if that happens (again) I’m sure the event will go on.

Helpful tips on biking and a bike gear swap are on the docket, as are a host of other events (some live music, activities for kids, etc). They’ll even have some tips for folks who have to drive cars. I’ll be swinging by on the big yellow cargo bike to show folks how to haul cargo and kids. Hope to see you there.
