Bike Zeitgeist


by Byron on Sep 24, 2006 at 9:13 AM

As Todd said in email, “I got your zeitgeist right here pal!,’ and linked me to BikePortland’s post on Electra’s new Amsterdam bike. The concept of a stylish, simple transport bike, be it “working,” “urban,” “townie,” or sport-utility bike, can flow right into that mood of change that’s going on in cities.

Given a good alternative, I think people want to get out of their cars.

A ferocious turf war in the city


by Byron on Sep 24, 2006 at 8:24 AM

The NYTimes reports today on a bike-friendlier New York. With “an estimated 120,000 regular cyclists in New York” and “40,000 of them” commuting, there’s a ferocious turf war. And an absolute moment of opportunity. Just like Seattle.

The Walla Walla Gran Fondo


by Byron on Sep 24, 2006 at 6:42 AM

The Gran Fondo Walla Walla is a ride that has been around in concept for about 10 years. It has had different people interested in promoting it, sponsoring it, and helping put it on for at least 5 of the last ten years, but it was not until last year that everyone that was interested finally sat down at the same table to put it al together. And when they put it all together, they decided to do it for people with cancer.

The Gran Fondo is on 9/30/06. Registration is $40.00 and includes a lunch and beverage.

Raise the hammer


by Byron on Sep 22, 2006 at 8:15 AM

Ryan McGreal sent us an email about his essay, Can the Bicycle Save Civilization, in the September issue of Raise the Hammer.

Ryan believes that the “lowly bicycle could be a key to our long-term survival.”

Ephraim the Track Bike


by Byron on Sep 22, 2006 at 7:40 AM

Ephraim the rather snarky track bike answers readers questions at the SFWeekly and this week responds to the question of “why hipsters would imitate bike messengers?” Hipsters even have their own line at Timbuk2 and aging frat boys can find cycling-inspired shoes this Fall (better than bowling-inspired shoes) from Skechers.

If you really want to try something hip, climb aboard a tall bike dressed like superman, and try not to seriously hurt yourself like you would in the old days of penny farthings and busted skulls.

The car you don’t drive


by Byron on Sep 22, 2006 at 7:29 AM

I was chatting with Drew about cycling in the UK and he linked me to Sustrans, a “sustainable transport charity.” Imagine that, a charity set up just to make a better commute.

Six Apart Bikes

Six Apart Bikes I was in San Francisco visiting Six Apart and noticed all the bikes!

There were two more city bikes downstairs and one Serotta fixie in the hall. Six Apart loves bikes.

I’ll see the Six Apart crew again in November at their Business Blogging Seminars. I’ll be talking about practical business blogging and how we built this blog and more.
