Two Huggers to Spain

1

by Byron on Oct 14, 2006 at 7:28 AM

GironaHugger 1 and 2 (Pam and I) will ride in Girona and Barcelona Spain next week. In Girona, we’re staying at the Moli Del Mig Hotel, which specializes in cycling vacations. Their amenities include bike cleaning facilities, workshop and mechanic, secure storage for bikes, and a menu just for cyclists!

For us, there’s no better vacation that eating, sleeping, and riding and doing that in Girona is going to be even better. As reported in the NYTimes, Girona is home to many professional cyclists, it’s considered a cycling mecca, and we’ll “represent” hugga style on those roads. Of course, I’ll blog the whole experience.

A few days later, we’ll ride in Barcelona. That riding will be more metropolitan and most likely just on bike paths and to coffee shops, but enjoyable just the same.

With winter coming, I know there are lots of Huggers whose minds are turning to new frames with which to meet the spring.

If you’re thinking about buying a frame and components and building it up yourself, instructables.com offers a step-by-step guide to assembling a bike. They break down the recommended tools and provide plenty of photos to shepherd you through the process.

WSJ brings SUBs to WWW

WSJ.com | The New Business Cycle

Nancy Keates at the Wall Street Journal looks at the new breed of transportation-friendly bikes making waves in the U.S.

Keane notes that commuter bike sales are up 15 percent in the last 2 years, but still make up a small fraction of total bike sales (she says $900,000, but that must be Euro-commuters only).

Among the featured bikes: the new Specialized Globe, Diamondback’s Transporter, Breezer’s Uptown 8, Electra’s Amsterdam, alongside folding bikes and electric-assist rides.

Keane gets a little wrapped up in the taxonomy – I don’t see why it matters whether it’s a Townie (and why is that capitalized?), comfort, or cruiser bike – but does a pretty good job surveying the segment.

Byron spent some time with her at Interbike, but he (and our Bettie Project) wound up on the cutting-room floor, right next to all of Kevin Costner’s stuff from The Big Chill.

big wheel A Interbike I was handed a mysterious brochure for an event that passed, a product that’s been discontinued, and the promise of secret project to build adult-sized big wheels.

I’m interested. Anyone know what’s going on?
