Of course, I immediately challenged Pronto here in Seattle to, as they say, "step your game up."
In all the years covering the bike, never expected to see the naked bike ride in an Apple developer keynote…we’re following along because of the News app being discussed now. Besides our web view, our magazine runs on the iOS Newsstand app. What does the Apple News format means for our content? Waiting for 29th Street Publishing to debrief us. They’re our partner in mobile apps.
Cyndi, Pam, and Steve at Duthie
Well that was fun! Spent the afternoon riding bikes at Duthie during the Evergreen MTB Festival, including this BMC fourstroke FS01 29. Less concern this time about wheel sizes and more the energy of the place, families, little kids, and women, and all them riding. It was a wheel size for everyone and there’s such a great vibe going on with dirt, including last weekend at the Grand Fondo Leavenworth.
Today we joined a select group of publications in the beta launch of Medium’s custom domains:
“What does that mean?,” you ask?
No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative. It gets the people going! – Chazz, Blades of Glory
Medium does get the people going…as Anne-Marie Slaughter from New America wrote: “We are on Medium because its format, mission, and success resonate.” Agreed! And for us it’s where we’ll share more of the nature, joy, fun, and challenges of life on two wheels. It pairs very nicely with what we’re doing with our magazine too, to build a larger subscriber base, and as a response to Facebook’s web takeover.
And I appreciate your support of the independent web, the magazine, and what Bike Hugger does. Of course, here on the blog will keep right on blogging. On Medium and with a new domain, we’re just focused on the magazine and for the next of couple years, at least.
24 covers so far

A sucker for waxed canvas, like our tool roll, in burgundy. SF Bag’s musette has been around a shoulder on rides ever since it arrived for review a few weeks ago. What do I like the most about it? Just a simple musette to toss an iPad, wallet, battery, cord, and snack in for the commute or ride into town for a meeting. The Vitesse is made to order and costs $69.00
