On the Clif Bar blog, Le Sensation American posts about their Evening with Da Pros tonight. The event coincides with the Tour of California, which starts tomorrow.

Late in March, a few huggas will tour parts of California near Santa Barbara – lots of photos and posts (and Clif Bar eating) will follow.

Not so patiently waiting

I head to Australia pretty soon for three weeks of sun, family, and hopefully bikeriding. Of course I have to wait for my new bike to show up in order to perform that last item. I previously posted about what’s the best. I’m pretty sure that waiting for new toys to show up is the worst.

As for the challenge, well it’s going to end soon. I’ll be in a flying tube of Aluminum for over a day.

World’s Most Beautiful Fenders

hacker.jpgI grew up coveting the classic wooden power boats of the 20s through the 50s. Chris Craft, Hacker Craft, and Master Craft are still icons to me. But those wooden hulls and bright work come at a cost.

Woody’s Custom Fenders has captured that aesthetic–and made it available for your bike. The photos speak for themselves.

Paths to Nowhere

Ever find yourself at the end of a bike path and riding right into traffic, railroad tracks, or sidewalks or car doors? It’s a definite problem and the Seattle Parks Foundation has announced Bands of Green, an effort to make create more loops from existing paths and trails.

Hopefully they’ll coordinate the bands with the Bicycle Master plan and such topics as wayfinding.

Fair Weather Riders

FFTF loop Pam and I were disappointed that no one showed up on Sunday for a team ride at Espresso World in Richland, WA. We guessed that the few dark rain clouds either kept the Chinook Cycling Club at home on trainers or they rode mountain bikes.

Undeterred (coming from Seattle, we were relieved by the weather), we joked that the Chinook were fair weather riders and rode the FFTF loop, which was the Rad Road Race back in the day. The Hanford roads were quiet and we saw only one car. We headed back on Highway 240 with a strong sidewind and tempo pace.

While the Tri-Cities has changed so much since I lived there, and there are new sprawling housing developments in nearly every desert field or old orchard, there are also new bike lanes, paths, and even some bike art!

Year to Date

Challenge.JPGSo it’s 40 days into the “Challenge”. I’m good so far. Minimum ride for me is 30 minutes with most days around 2 hours. My wife thinks I’m nuts, but you are all keeping me honest. “I can’t bail on the challenge!”.

Atlanta suburb pursuing single-file bike restrictions

ajc.com | Cycling in single file may end road debate

A suburban Atlanta county commissioner plans to give up his attempt to ban cyclists on a popular local training route, instead seeking a rule requiring riders to travel single-file.

Local cyclists got involved after the story hit the media, and a committee suggested the single-file rule as a possible compromise after meeting Monday night. Cobb County’s Board of Commissioners will likely take up the as-yet-unfinished ordinance February 27th.

Cyclist Mark Gernazian, who served on the committee, said the cyclists have softened their insistence on their rights. “Trying to drive home our rights to the road was not going to create any harmony on Columns Drive,” he said.
